Kim Kardashian defends nude selfie

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is known for “breaking the internet” with her NSFW (not safe for work) selfies, and almost always facing major criticism for them. This time around, she posted a nude mirror selfie on Instagram, captioning it: “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL.”

Posted on March 6, the selfie has Kim wearing absolutely nothing, with two censors to ensure the photo passes Instagram’s nudity rules. Kim’s track record with posting controversial photos has her knowing that she can always expect critics. However, the fierce backlash she faced this time around went all the way to include Hollywood bigwigs such as actresses Chloë Grace Moretz and Bette Midler and even TV personality Piers Morgan.

Bette tweeted: “Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.”

Piers Morgan tweeted that he wanted to offer to buy Kim clothes, making a joke out of her Kanye West’s (her husband) tweet where he stated that he was $53 million in debt.

Kim fired back at them in the ultimate form of social media rebuttals, tweeting disses to all three of them. However, it seemed the twitter feud just didn’t cut it for Kim, and she posted an impassioned essay addressing the issues of “body-shaming and slut-shaming” she has been subject to.

Posting the essay on her website (kimkardashianwest.com) on Internationals Women’s day, Kardashian said that she decided to share that photo because her body was “a source of strength and empowerment.”

Titled “Happy International Women’s day,” a snippet from the essay reads: “The life lessons I’ve learned from my sisters, my mother and my grandmother, I will pass along to my daughter. I want her to be proud of who she is. I want her to be comfortable in her body. I don’t want her to grow up in a world where she is made to feel less-than for embracing everything it means to be a woman. It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming - it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me.”

“I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy #happy international womensday.”
