Kim Kardashian Seems to Have Blocked the Snake Emoji from Her Instagram Comments
Taylor Swift has been dominating social media this week, teasing her new album Reputation with short clips of a creepy snake. Many assume she’s reclaiming the serpent after being called a snake and then spammed with snake emojis during her falling out with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Now, according to some sleuthing by BuzzFeed, Kardashian appears to have blocked snake emojis from her Instagram comments, and Swift fans are LIVING for the irony.
Back in the summer of 2016, Instagram developed a filter that could automatically delete whatever words and emojis users wanted from their comments. Swift, who had forever been pegged a snake thanks to the below tweet from Kardashian, was one of the first accounts to test it, and soon, her feed was snake free.
Wait it's legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍

Now, Kardashian’s Instagram comments are also snake free. BuzzFeed tried to comment a snake on Kardashian’s latest pic and, sure enough, it didn’t show up. Swift fans were amused by the revelation, to say the least.

Unfortunately for Kardashian, Twitter doesn’t have the same specific blocking function as Instagram, and Swifties are flooding Kardashian’s Twitter mentions with the little green emoji. Take a look:

You get the picture.
Of course, we don’t know how long Kardashian has had the snake filtered out of her IG feed, or whether it had anything to do with the timing of Swift’s album announcement. Regardless, we’re sure she’s glad she did it when she did — the Swift album cycle is just ramping up.

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
