IN one of the strangest Twitter spats of the year, The Walking Dead has taken aim at Kim Kardashian.
The acclaimed AMC zombie drama is currently hard at work on its extended season 10 episodes, but found time for a playful swipe at the 40-year-old after her recent birthday post.
Kim revealed that she had whisked her nearest and dearest away to a private island to celebrate the milestone birthday and took to social media to share a string of extravagant pics.
The glamorous shots proved to be divisive, as fans branded the post "gratuitous, unrelatable and excessive" given the current global pandemic.
Clearly the folks at The Walking Dead agree, as the show's official account posted their own parody picture alongside Kim's original quote.
"After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time," they wrote.
The caption was accompanied by a picture of the survivors at Oceanside – one of the allied communities previously decimated by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and The Saviours.
Fans will remember how the women and children of Oceanside were left to fend for themselves after The Saviours slaughtered the men, who resisted handing over their supplies.
Despite some initial reluctance, the group later joined forces with Hilltop, Alexandria and The Kingdom in the wars against both The Saviours and The Whisperers.
Suffice to say the group of post-apocalyptic don't look as glam as Kim and co, but then again, they're not exactly dressed for fashion points.

Fans couldn't get enough of the mocking post and took to the comments section in fits of laughter.
"Omg absolutely wetting myself, this is the drama I never knew I needed," one fan wrote.
"The shade is immaculate! Love this so much," a second chimed in.
A third wrote: "Haha nice dig at the Kardashian."
While a fourth chimed in: "I'd rather be at Oceanside's party any day tbh."
Kim's original post came in multiple parts and read as follows.
"40 and feeling so humbled and blessed. There is not a single day that I take for granted, especially during these times when we are all reminded of the things that truly matter.
"For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today.
"Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.
"We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is."
In other The Walking Dead news, bosses promised that Michonne's (Danai Gurira) story "is just starting" after her departure in season 10.
Elsewhere, fans claimed The Commonwealth's soldiers bore a striking resemblance to Star Wars' Storm Troopers.
Meanwhile Maggie Rhee actress Lauren Cohan revealed her dream ending for The Walking Dead, with Rick and Michonne reunited.
The Walking Dead season 10 will continue with its six-episode extension in 2021 on AMC in the US and FOX in the UK.
