The reality star was famously robbed of over £8m jewellery in Paris in October 2016.
Taylor Swift has been targeted by Internet users for allegedly mocking Kim Kardashian's gunpoint robbery in her new music video.
The singer premiered the controversial visual for her new song 'Look What You Made Me Do' during the 2017 VMA's this weekend.
During the video, Swift can be seen laying in a bathtub, covered in diamonds, and on the line "I don't like your perfect crime", the camera pans to her hands, which are adorned with jewels.
On the line "You said the gun was mine", Swift draws her hand into a gun shape and fires a shot.
Soon enough, viewers began speculating whether or not the action was a hint to Kim Kardashian's infamous robbery in Paris last year, which saw robbers make off with £8m worth of jewellery - specifically, diamonds.
The reality TV star was reportedly placed in a bathtub after being gagged and held with a gun to her head in her hotel suite.
Kardashian, who shares two children, North and Saint, with husband Kanye West, later revealed that she thought she would be raped and murdered during the horrific ordeal.
From this aspect, the visual garnered a negative response from viewers who labelled the alleged dig as "evil".

Swift is yet to respond to the allegations.
Meanwhile, reports claim that Kim and Kanye are entirely unbothered by the country-turned-pop singer's latest release.
"They find it pathetic that she still tries to keep an old feud going," a source told People magazine, claiming that they "don’t care about Taylor’s music".
"They are not going to give her or her new music any attention," the source adds, "They have more important things to focus on, like their family."
Additionally, after the single's release, Kanye's 'Monster' collaborator Nicki Minaj appeared to shade Swift on Twitter.
