We’ve all been keeping up with the
Kardashians Taylor Swift drama. The think pieces. The memes. The possible lawsuit. Since I basically live for shitting on Taylor Swift (and Kylie Jenner, but she’s been disappointingly tame lately) I truly thought my life would never get any better than Monday, when news of Taylor outright lying about approving Kanye’s “Famous” lyric broke. I honestly thought everyone would be over this in a day. But thank god we live in 2016, an era where famous people can’t even make the slightest misstep without being ridiculed mercilessly online for weeks afterward. What a time to be alive.
Amidst the memes, tweets, and murals pronouncing Taylor dead came something even more amazing than I thought possible. Someone hacked Taylor Swift’s Wikipedia name and changed it to “Slithering Snake Becky With The Good Lies.”
I’m really glad we’re still making “Becky With The Good _____” happen, although I would object to calling Taylor’s lies “good” because obviously her lies couldn’t have been that good if she got caught. But I guess that’s just splitting (good) hairs.
The unnamed visionary also listed “Regina George” and “Victim” among her aliases and put in her bio section that she was “dragged to the grave by successful businesswoman Kim Kardashian.”
As much as I enjoyed this, I think hacking Taylor’s Wikipedia was taking things a little far. Not because I have sympathy for Taylor, but because it is definitely not worth the multi-million dollar “character assassination” lawsuit she’s probably going to slap this hacker with. Just saying, I don’t feel like this person really thought it through. Taylor sues her own fans just for fun; wtf do you think she’s going to do to someone who called her a slithering snake?
Regardless, I don’t care how many people call me petty; I will continue to amuse myself with this childishness until the next celebrity comes along and does something stupid. Any takers? Kylie?
