The disappointing way people are reacting to Kim Kardashian's nude selfie
Kim Kardashian West may not be trying to break the Internet (this time), but that doesn’t mean she’ll forego a nude selfie opportunity to showcase her body confidence.
Earlier today, according to People, the reality TV star took to both Twitter and Instagram to post a pic of her birthday suit – with her private parts censored. Kim K’s caption: “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL.”
However, it seems that the image was not taken recently, despite the fact that many believe Kim to be showing off her post-baby body. Just six days ago, Kim posted a photo of her family watching The Brothers Grimsby with Sacha Baron Cohen. In the snapshot, she’s sporting her signature dark hair. Plus, her latest Insta post also shows her with blonde hair, but she mentions that it is a flashback photo. As you can imagine, Kim’s nude selfie was met with many negative responses. Responses that criticize Kim’s body, claim that she’s a terrible mother, and worse.
It’s a major bummer to see the kind of rude, vulgar responses Kim K received. Claiming a woman can’t be a good mother or partner because she’s owning her body and her sexuality perpetuates the constant slut-shaming so many women receive for doing just that. It’s amazing that Kim feels so comfortable in her skin — and it’s a shame that so many people are criticizing her for that.
But many supported the reality TV star and her choice to embrace and celebrate her bod. Some with humor…
…And some with real sincerity, defending the celeb with positivity.
In the end, it’s Kim’s decision to post whatever pics of herself she wants to. You can’t say that she didn’t start a conversation.
