Ahh, the TROLLS.
Unsurprisingly, this whole Taylor Swift backlash has extended into her Wikipedia page, which was vandalized following her “Famous” feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. So what happened? Oh, we’ll tell ya:
In the birth name section, the “Shake It Off” singer’s name was changed to “Taylor ‘Slithering Snake Becky With the Good Lies’ Alison Swift,” a nod to Beyoncé calling her lover’s mistress “Becky With the Good Hair” on her album Lemonade. The nasty trolls didn’t stop there, adding Mean Girls’ “Regina George” and “victim” to her list of nicknames and “liar” to her occupations.
The opening line of her bio section was switched to say: “Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American singer-songwriter fraud that got dragged to the grave by successful businesswoman Kim Kardashian.”
Of course Wikipedia editors caught wind of the changes and returned the page to its original state, in addition to locking the page to prevent certain trolls from making additional changes/remarks. In my opinion, this whole thing is going to blow over pretty soon.
But Becky with the Good lies? Kinda clever.
