Kim Kardashian West Revisits Feud with Taylor Swift By Teaching Fans 'How to Clap Back' Against the Haters
"When I feel like someone is being fake is the time that I'll say something, and it's usually really publicly," says the star
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to her website and app Tuesday to post a video that she had filmed with her close friend Jonathan Cheban in which the two explore the art of clapping back. (For the uninitiated, Kardashian West explains to “clap back” means “to return fire, to return a diss.”)
So what warrants a clap back in Kardashian West’s book?
“When I feel like someone is being fake is the time that I’ll say something, and it’s usually really publicly,” she says – which, of course, might just be a thinly veiled reference to her ultra-public feud with Taylor Swift over husband Kanye West‘s “Famous” track. (Of Kardashian West’s reason for re-igniting the long-standing feud last month by leaking videos of Swift seemingly approving West’s lyrics about her, a source told PEOPLE Kardashian West “was tired of Taylor being portrayed as this angel – she’s fake.”)
“My tip on clapping back is just do whatever makes you feel good,” adds the star. “Like, if you feel like talking s— to someone, go for it.”
But according to Kardashian West, she takes “the high road most of the time.”
“I just don’t care,” she tells Cheban in the video. “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, in a year? And usually the answer is no.”

While admitting Midler is “such a legend,” Kardashian West felt the comedian’s criticism was unwarranted.
“Hey, you do you, let me be me – no need to be rude or tear someone else down,” she says. “Let’s just be nice.”
But what frustrates Kardashian West the most are those who criticize her weight on social media.
“Like body shamers – ‘Oh, you must have gotten [liposuction] to lose all your baby weight’ – you have no idea how hard it is for me to do low carbs and to really focus and to do this,” says the star, who recently revealed she’s down to 125 lbs. “I spend so much time and energy working out, getting up at 6 in the morning, making sure that I’m finished working out before the kids are up. That’s something that pisses me off. Like, you don’t know the half of it.”
