West claimed that the lyrics of 'Famous' were written with Swift's consent, a claim she fervently denied. The situation intensified when Kardashian released a recording that suggested Swift was dishonest. This led to a significant backlash against Swift, including her being labeled a snake, a scenario she referred to as a 'fully manufactured frame job.'
