In case you missed it, Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski posed topless in a bathroom, selfie’d it, and then posted said image on social media.
Whether it was a girl power attempt to divert the media’s attention away from the embattled Kehlani and scumbaggy Nick Young or just some good ol’ fashioned fun is anyone’s guess, but you’ve got to give it to Kim at this point: she knows how to keep herself in the news, and use biggest asset-her sexuality-to do it.
You see, when Kim Kardashian posted a photo of her post-pregnancy body in the buff earlier this month, it triggered her legion of haters, who fired back at the reality star-entrepreneur with all manner of misguided vitriol.
Everyone from Pink, Bette Midler, Chloe Grace Moretz, and one of the world’s premier hacks, Piers Morgan, cast aspersions on Kim for displaying her God-given talent.
Miley Cyrus and Amber Rose came down firmly on Team Kim, with Rose telling The Daily Beast, “It’s bullshit, and this is the thing: They come at me and Kim so hard because I was a stripper and she had a sex tape. So if we could sing, it would be OK if we were on stage half-naked. We all love Beyoncé, but she’s on stage half-naked and twerking all the time, yet people say, oh, she has talent so she’s able to do that. We don’t have the talent that Beyoncé has, so we get criticized as former sex workers, but at the end of the day we’re just women-we’re all women-and we should all embrace each other. No one is greater.”
For whatever reason, these days, people have a knee-jerk negative reaction whenever any woman posts a nude photo of herself online, let alone Kim.
When women like Kim and Ratajkowski post their own nude photos, they’re in a sense reclaiming ownership over their bodies; they’re no longer the ingénue, but the director of the picture.
