Kanye's ex has become an unlikely ally
Amber Rose has become the latest unexpected ally to come out in defence of Kim Kardashian’s nude antics on Instagram, which have drawn quite a bit of heat in the last few days from stars including Chloe Moretz and Bette Midler.
Hitting back at an Instagram post by the singer Pink (which appeared to be a thinly veiled critisicm of Kim, praising women who don’t use their “body”, their “a**” and their “t*ts” to get attention) Rose wrote a long comment telling Pink “we were all born naked, society sexualizes our breast and bodies [sic]. If a grown mother of 2 is comfortable with her body and wants to show it off that’s none of ur business or anyone else’s.”
Despite Rose famously falling out with Kim’s husband Kanye earlier this year on Twitter, it would seem that’s all water under the bridge now as she jumped to defend his wife.
The whole storm-in-a-social-media-teacup row began on Monday when Kim posted a picture of herself on Instagram standing in front of a mirror totally nude, with the caption ‘When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL’.
Obviously a naked picture from Kim Kardashian isn’t exactly big news, the reality star has shown she’s very comfortable with posting pictures of herself in various states of undress, from incredibly high-cut white swimsuits to professionally-shot pictures with a champagne coupe balanced on her derriere.
But for 19-year-old Kick-Ass actress Chloe Moretz, this single naked picture appeared to be the final straw and she took to her Twitter account to say so: ‘@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women’ Moretz wrote ‘teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.’
Moretz wasn’t the only person to comment on the picture. Comedienne and singer Bette Midler also joked to her 896,000 followers, ‘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.’
Kim is no stranger to criticism about her social media – um – strategy, and usually takes the ‘silence is golden’ route when other A-listers call her out, but this time she decided to fight back, possibly with Kanye standing over her shoulder shouting ‘go on Kim, give ‘em hell.’
‘Hey @BetteMidler I know it’s past your bedtime but if you’re still up and reading this send nudes #justkidding’, before turning her attention to Moretz with this ‘let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. Your nylon cover is cut boo’.
Fans of Kardashian accused Moretz of ‘slut-shaming.’ The actress responded to say she was simply asking Kim to respect her celebrity ‘platform.’
Moretz’s comments might have come from a purely feminist perspective, but Kardashian clearly felt there was nothing anti-women about a nude selfie, as she hit back with the below. The hashtag? #Liberated.
Clearly Amber Rose is with her on this one.
