Taylor Swift — longtime frenemy of Kanye West — has finally released what many presumed would be a lyrical comeback after last year’s public spat between the two and West’s wife Kim Kardashian. But the 27-year-old “Shake It Off” singer came under fire this week after she released the official video for her new single “Look What You Made Me Do,” as some viewers said the video might have mocked Kardashian’s robbery at her Paris apartment last October.

The video for the song off her forthcoming album Reputation premiered Sunday during the MTV VMAs — a notable nod to the same award show during which West launched his infamous 2009 tirade during Swift’s acceptance speech. The video depicts Swift in a bathtub of jewels with diamond rings adorning her well-manicured fingers. As many critics have pointed out, Kardashian’s $4 million engagement ring was famously stolen in the heist, and she was placed in the bathtub of her Paris apartment by her assailants while bound and gagged.

“Gun...jewelry...bathtub,” wrote one user who connected the aforementioned elements to Kardashian’s traumatic event. “This is so wrong.”

“Taylor Swift throwing 'shade' on Kim Kardashian's robbery isn't shade, it's f—g horrible,” wrote another critic.

“That moment when taylor swift take a stab on @KimKardashian paris robbery,” another tweeted. “That's so petty and cheap. The new taylor is still immature.”

The apparent references to Kardashian’s armed robbery — during which the 36-year-old reality star later revealed she feared she would be raped and murdered — perhaps wouldn’t be so glaring to some critics of the video if not for other allusions to the famous couple and Swift’s perceived public slights. Swift made reference to West’s famous “tilted stage” in the single’s lyrics and also nods to several other incidents (including the 2009 interruption) involving West both in her lyrics as well as with visuals in her video. It’s also worth noting that her album is due to release on the tenth anniversary of the death of West’s mother.

Both Kardashian and West have remained mum since the release of Swift’s single last week, and the two opted to skip this year’s VMAs. Kardashian on Monday co-hosted “Live with Kelly and Ryan” with Ryan Seacrest, a producer on her E! series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” and briefly opened up about the incident last October during the segment.

“It definitely changed my life, how I move, what security I have around me and my kids and how I travel,” Kardashian told Seacrest.

Kardashian also spoke with Ellen DeGeneres in April during her first public interview since her Paris ordeal. During the interview, Kardashian told the host that the event had a lasting effect on her.

“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me,” Kardashian said. “That was so meant to happen to me. I really feel that things happen in your life to teach you things.”
