Internet trolls, beware! Kim Kardashian took to her app to let fans in on her process when it comes to hitting back at her haters on social media.
In a new video, appropriately titled “How to Clap Back,” the reality queen, 35, sat down with BFF Jonathan Cheban to discuss how and when she decides to return fire to an online enemy.
“When I feel like someone is being fake is like the time that I’ll say something that’s usually very publicly,” the outspoken Selfish author explained. “I personally take the high road most of the time. Like I just don’t care. So I always think, will I be affected by this tomorrow? Will I be affected by it in a week? Will I be affected in a month? And in a year? And usually the answer is no.”
As fans are well aware, the E! personality has unapologetically slammed her critics via social media within recent months. In March 2016, Kardashian posted an Internet-breaking nude selfie, which caused a divisive argument among celebs who supported the revealing snapshot and those who felt it was inappropriate.
Chloe Grace Moretz memorably condemned the mom of two’s eyebrow-raising photo by tweeting, “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.” In response, Kardashian sniped back: “Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo.”
And then in June, the Kimoji founder took aim at Taylor Swift in defense of husband Kanye West during an interview with GQ. As previously reported, Kim alleged to the men’s magazine that Swift, 26, was aware of West’s controversial lyrics for his track “Famous,” in which he raps: “I feel like me and Taylor still might have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Kardashian claimed that Swift even helped write the line in a recorded conversation, but the “Shake It Off” singer’s rep denied the story.
In an attempt to prove her point, the TV star infamously released a series of Snapchat videos featuring her hip-hop hubby’s phone call with Swift. In the clips, the Grammy winner seemingly gives her blessing for Ye to use her name in his rap (an allegation that Swift has vehemently denied).
On the July 17 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kardashian opened up about her choice to call out T. Swift. “I never talk s–t about anyone publicly, especially in interviews. But I was just like, I had so had it,” she said. “I just felt like I wanted to defend him in it because it’s like, she legitimately quote says, ‘As soon as I get on that Grammy red carpet I’m gonna tell all the press. Like I was in on it.'”
On her app, Kardashian advised that one should follow his or her instincts when contemplating an explosive clap back: “Just do whatever makes you feel good. Like if you feel like talking s–t to someone, go for it.”
