Taylor Swift’s Wiki Page Has Been Hacked by Team Kim + Kanye
With the Taylor Swift vs. Kim + Kanye feud still going strong, the Internet is justifiably going nuts. Legal action and tweets that take the sitch WAY too far are just a part of this ongoing celeb spectacle. Now, the end-all-be-all of modern info, Wikipedia, has been dragged into the drama. Unknown parties obviously supporting Team Kim + Kanye decided to hack Taylor’s wiki page this week and made a few edits that were… less than kind. Okay, they were downright NASTY.
While we mostly hear about stars’ Twitter accounts being hacked, this slightly different tactic totally had its desired effect. Making edits right from the start, the hackers decided a better name for Taylor would be “Taylor ‘Slithering Snake Becky With The Good Lies’ Alison Swift.” Ouch.
If Tay isn’t terribly fond of that name and is looking for a new pseudonym to complement a recently revealed choice that was also added to Wiki, aka Nils Sjorberg, the hackers helpfully popped in “Victim” to Taylor’s “also known as” section. Oof.
As if those hits weren’t bad enough, under “Occupation,” Tay’s career apparently includes being a “liar” as well as attributing her success to one factor: “Kanye West Made Famous.” Ouch and oof!

The changes have now been removed, but of course peeps were quick to capture screenshots that show us what went down.
With this drama striking out in every direction possible, it’s hard to imagine what could possibly come next.
