Forget the U.S. presidential election, forget Brexit, the year's most polarizing news story still belongs to three of the world's biggest superstars — Team Taylor vs. Team Kimye. Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario is the latest celeb to weigh in on the debate which is dividing the nation, has wasted no time telling us how she really feels.

For those not in the know (seriously, where have you been?), it all started when Taylor Swift denied allowing Kanye West to use her in his (now iconic) song 'Famous,' triggering the omniscient Kim Kardashian-West to release a snapchat video of Taylor's verbal agreement to use name in the track.

TV star Troian definitely isn't lying about her feelings on the whole issue. Better known as Spencer Hastings on Pretty Little Liars, she was asked in an interview with Cosmopolitan where she falls on the whole Kimye/Swift feud, and her reply was cutting:

Oh god, I have such an aversion to the Kardashians because I literally don't understand people's obsession with them and I don't want to accept them as our closest thing to a royal family, so I guess I would be Team Taylor Swift?

So is Troian on Team Taylor? Think again. She continued:

However, I'm so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism. It seems like she's this person who's like, "Sisterhood!" and then she does nothing but tear down the women that were once her friends.

Ouch. So clearly Troian has had enough of this issue, and has strong opinions about both Kimye and Taylor. Like many of us at this point, she's probably Team Why-Is-This-Still-A-Thing?:

So is it possible to just be, like … this is a two-party system that I don't want to be a part of? Can I just say that? Can I say that I would choose the Green Party in this?

Troian, I love you.

So Who Exactly is on Team Taylor?

While most celebs seem to be backing Team Kimye in the scandal, some more celebs have come out in support of Taylor.

1. Selena Gomez

Taylor's biggest cheerleader from the very beginning has been Selena Gomez, who tweeted:

2. Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

After being very present at Taylor's Fourth of July party, Ryan and Blake have also supported their pal by 'liking' her Instagram response to the video.

3. Martha Hunt

Model and T-Swiz Squad Member™ Martha Hunt tweeted her thoughts on the drama.

4. Ruby Rose

Ultimate heartthrob and T-Swiz Squad Member™ Ruby Rose kinda sorta came out in support of Tay, if a little ambiguously.

5. Chloe Grace Moritz

In an impassioned tweet just hours after the video surfaced, Moritz took to twitter to call out the industry, and support Swift by proxy.

Now that the dust has settled on that atom bomb of a Snapchat story, perhaps you too are now Team Taylor? Or are you 100% with Kim and Kanye? Or are you more like Troian, wondering why we have to pick sides at all?

If you need a distraction from all of this celebrity beef, let Troian and the girls take your mind off things in the latest promo for Pretty Little Liars episode 7.6, which will be with us in just a few short weeks!

Are you Team Taylor, Team Kimye, or Team Troian?
