Despite recent evidence to the contrary, people once again think there might be bad blood between Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift, and this time, it’s all because of an Instagram caption.
Earlier this week, Kloss posted her 2017 Love magazine advent calendar video, which showed her dribbling a basketball and weaving around as if on the court. She captioned the clip, “Swish swish,” a seemingly innocuous phrase considering the post’s content.
But many took it as a nod to the Katy Perry song of the same name — which, in turn, fans perceived as a dig at Taylor Swift, given the long-running feud between Perry and Swift (which the song “Swish Swish” seems to directly reference).
Swifties took to the comments to accuse Kloss of throwing shade at Swift, with one user even calling it “the worst thing you can do to a friend.” It wasn’t long before Kloss quietly changed the caption to different basketball lingo. It now reads, “Nothing but net.”
But you can’t please everyone, and some fans took issue with the change, too: Many say that she shouldn’t have changed the caption, and that while it was a considerate move if she thought her pop-star pal might be offended, caving to pressure from over-enthusiastic fans only makes Swifties look bad.
Rumors of a potential rift between Swift and Kloss started when the model’s name was absent from Swift’s “squad” shirt in her easter-egg filled “Look What You Made Me Do” video. In December, Kloss seemed to squash the rumors by posting a sweet birthday message to her longtime friend.
