Taylor Swift Fans Fire Back at MTV: You Snubbed Our Girl!

Excuse Taylor Swift supporters, MTV.

They're gonna let you finish promoting your upcoming Video Music Awards, but first they have something to say:

You suck! Our girl rules! And you totally snubbed her!

Taylor Swift with Her Fans

Earlier this week, MTV announced its long list of nominees for this year's VMAs, which will air live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

And Swift was included on this list.

But the singer only received only three nominations: best art direction, best visual effects and best editing for her "Look What You Made Me Do" video.

For Taylor Swift? Someone who has dominated this exact ceremony for years and someone often considered the most successful solo artist of all-time?

Three lowly nominations, especially for a video that marked her musical comeback, was simply stunning and unacceptable to her loyal fans.

Taylor Swift, Look What You Made Me Do

This debut single and video from Swift's "Reputation" album was much heralded and anticipated because Swift had been almost entirely silent for a year prior to its release.

There's no way she can't be disappointed by its reception.

Using the hashtag "VmasAreOverParty," many Internet users made it abundantly clear that they assuredly are.

"EXCUSE ME?" asked one Instagram commentator after the nominations were confirmed, addressing the account @vmas and adding:

"Taylor Swift did not just bathe in diamonds, drag other artists, use a plane, rode a motorcycle, bring back her old personalities, serve us amazing choreo, and break the 24 hour Vevo record for you to just snub her like that.

"she clearly had the video of the year."

Others agree:

If you remember, Swift disappeared for several months after being called out as a phony and a liar by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

She returned last August in classic Taylor Swift form, calling out Kim and Kanye and her numerous other critics via the aforementioned video and song.

Some folks adored the revenge-themed track, as you can tell from the posts above.

But others have grown tired of Taylor's act, wishing she would stop playing the victim and stop using every little slight as the basis for her albums.

It's actually a somewhat interesting debate.

As for the singers who beat Swift out in the lead categories at this year's VMAs? Here's a rundown...

Ariana Grande -- "No Tears Left to Cry"
Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B -- "Finesse (Remix)"
Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug -- "Havana"
The Carters -- "APES**T"
Childish Gambino -- "This Is America"
Drake -- "God's Plan"
