Paris Hilton Likes a Reminder for Kanye West That She Made Kim Kardashian Famous

She knows the fame game well. Paris Hilton recently liked an Instagram meme that makes fun of Kanye West’s “Famous” music video and suggests that the former Simple Life star made the rapper’s wife, Kim Kardashian, a household name. 

One of Hilton’s fans took to social media on Monday, June 27, to share a hilarious image featuring a still from West’s controversial video in which the “Stars Are Blind” singer’s face is superimposed over Taylor Swift’s.

As previously reported, West’s new video — which dropped Friday, June 24 — features the naked bodies of stars such as Swift, 26, Kardashian, 35, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and the rapper himself, among others. The nude figures are seen sleeping in bed together.

“I made his bitch ‘famous,’” reads the line above the Photoshopped masterpiece, showing Hilton falsely nestled next to West and his wife.

“Well.... This made me crack up! 😂 @parishilton you're the best!” Hilton enthusiast LittleHiltonBoy captioned the ’gram. “Kanye before judging artists and celebrities, you should check out your home first ! 😂😂 #parishilton.”

(And yes, Cosmopolitan.com captured the screenshot that proves the hotel heiress, 35, liked the post.)

Of course, Hilton’s fervent fan is calling out Yeezy, 39, for taking credit for Swift’s massive success — and also reminds the hip-hop star of Kardashian’s humble beginnings.

As many are aware, the reality TV queen once worked as Hilton’s closet organizer and often walked in the socialite’s shadow at club appearances and red carpet events throughout the mid-2000s. In 2008, Hilton started taking public shots at Kardashian, whose fame increased following the release of her infamous sex tape with Ray J and her role on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Despite their falling out (and Hilton’s shady double-tap on Monday), the Confessions of an Heiress author offered some sweet words about Kardashian in an April 2015 interview — but insinuated that she did, in fact, help the E! personality achieve notoriety.

“We’ve known each other since we were little girls. We’ve always been friends,” Hilton told Yahoo Style of her longtime frenemy. “It’s nice to inspire people. I’m really proud of her and what she’s done.”
