The ongoing feud between Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian West just won’t die. These three continue to publicly hash it out over the infamous 2016 phone call heard round the world.

Just yesterday, we reported on the recently released transcript of the call between Taylor and Kanye. The transcript seemed to exonerate Taylor. But now, Kim is clapping back.

The 2016 Phone Call That Ignited the Feud

The phone call in question is of course the one between Taylor and Kanye, in which the artists discuss Kanye’s song he was about to release, called “Famous.”

At the time, the two chatted via cellphones about a line in the song referencing Taylor. It seemed like Kanye was asking for Taylor’s permission to use her name.

When “Famous” dropped, Swift claimed that she was angry about the line that says, “I made that b*tch famous.” But Kanye claimed that Taylor Swift had given him explicit permission to say that line.

Back in 2016, T-Swift’s publicist, Tree Paine, released a statement. It said,

“Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined, and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message,” the statement continued. “Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that b*tch famous.'”

Kim K. then quickly  took it upon herself to post secret video clips she had recorded from the conversation. The videos made it look like Taylor was making the whole thing up.

This video, originally posted by the Daily Mail, shows some of the clip that Kim originally shared.

Now, the new transcript has brought the feud back into headlines again. Kim K. is again lashing out at Taylor over the whole thing.

Kim posted a series of tweets Monday night in response to Taylor’s recent statement. She says T-Swift is still lying about whether or not she approved of Kanye’s lyrics in “Famous.”

Kim Kardashian Still Calling Taylor Swift a Liar

“.@taylorswift13 has chosen to reignite an old exchange – that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now,” Kim starts. “Because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying.”

Kim continued, “To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist, who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission…’ They clearly spoke, so I let you all see that,” Kim clarified. “Nobody ever denied the word ‘b*tch’ was used without her permission.”

But then, Kim K. leaned in to what she really finds issue with. And that is the statement made by T-Swift’s publicist:

“At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet. But as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement, when her team said she ‘declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.'”

The tweets continue as follows:

Who do you think is in the right here?
