Look at Kim Kardashian West trying to pull a Taylor Swift.
If you're like (what I estimate to be) 87 percent of people with an Internet connection, you probably don't like Kim Kardashian West.
You may not have a firm answer as to why you don't like her, but you were sort of predisposed to not liking her.
Kind of like Arby's.
Kim is the Arby's of people.
This story might not change how you feel about her, but it will at least make you confused about your opinions of her.
It all started when a Kim superfan, Myleeza, got a shout out from Kim in a recent issue of Vogue Spain.
Myleeza posted the shoutout to Instagram and said,
Here's what she said: 'I love my followers. I start my day reading their tweets. I love them. I adore them. I like knowing what's going on in their lives. There's a girl I follow on Twitter, she has the best account and is always defending me and saying nice things about me. When I heard she was at one of Kanye's shows I asked her to tell me where she was and sent my security for her so she could sit with me and go backstage. I know her birthday is in August and I'm flying to New Orleans, where she lives, to have dinner with her. I'm doing it because she's a really good person, a friend I found thanks to social media.' Thanks to @worldofkimye for the translation! SHE CALLED ME HER FRIEND. I REPEAT, SHE CALLED ME HER FRIEND. #DEAD #SQUADGOALS
I know. I KNOW.
Myleeza confirmed Kim would be coming down to New Orleans for a few hours to spend some time with her biggest fan.
Im really just riding around crying tears of joy right now. Kim is pregnant with a child at home yet she's flying to spend my bday w/ me! — Myleeza Kardashian (@MyleezaKardash) August 3, 2015
Kim's Placenta even congratulated the newly legal birthday woman on this huge get.
@MyleezaKardash omg happy birthday!! Have a great day & have fun w KIM!! — Kim Kardashian West (@KimsPlacenta) August 4, 2015
Then, Kim arrived in New Orleans and immediately started chowing down on some beignets -- like, very fiercely chowing down on some beignets.
Myleeza could hardly hold it together. It really affected her sing-along skills.
Then, the two met.
In an Instagram post with Kim, Myleeza wrote,
DREAMS COME TRUE. Thank you Kim! Thank you for changing a country girl from Louisiana life forever. I'm forever grateful for this! #KimIsHeavenSent#WhatABirthday #MyBestFriend#WhyCantLifeALWAYSBeThisEasy?
Gifts were given.
Songs were sung.

Yeezy album secrets were revealed.
I asked about SWISH too! All I will say is there will be a new punchline that the world will be saying forever. — Myleeza Kardashian (@MyleezaKardash) August 4, 2015
Kim's Instagram beauty secrets were disclosed.
No filters & those photoshop rumors are lies. She has a case that has lights on it & she uploads right after. https://t.co/WmYwyhC5Yp — Myleeza Kardashian (@MyleezaKardash) August 5, 2015
A fun day indeed.
Happy Birthday @MyleezaKardash I'm so thankful to spend your 21st birthday with you here in New Orleans! pic.twitter.com/wfupuVKlwr — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) August 4, 2015
Weren't we supposed to not like Kim Kardashian West?
This is like the sweetest thing of all time. I have no idea what I should be feeling anymore.
I mean, Kim doing good without the benefit of gaining any major publicity?
What a change in attitude. I'm proud of her. This is a huge step for… What's that?
Mashable reports Kim shot scenes for an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” while they were at this fan's party?
Oh. So, this was probably less a goodwill thing and more likely a positive brand image thing?
I hate Arby's.
