In Memoriam: Here Lie The Best “R.I.P. Taylor” Memes

Carl Williott | July 20, 2016 10:28 am

Over the past couple days, Kim Kardashian‘s “savage” Taylor Swift phone leak inspired all kinds of hyperbolic (aka “zero chill”) jokes, but the most entertaining of the bunch were the ones about Swift’s “death.” This is perhaps the first time the almighty Swift wasn’t in on the jokes and was being laughed at, so in terms of memes having a huge pop music impact, this is right up there with all things Lemonade and with Drake crowd-sourcing the ethering of Meek Mill.

And  it shall be memorialized in one handy spot, where you can re-up on the schadenfreude that has kept the #KimExposedTaylorParty alive all week. Here are the best R.I.P. Taylor jokes, in no particular order.
