Celebs Take Sides in Kim Kardashian Nude Selfie Debate

Love her or hate her - she knows how to get people talking! Even in the upper circles...

It's been a few days now since Kim Kardashian posted another naked selfie on her social media accounts.

What was initially thought to be just a classic Kimmy overshare, the image has since ignited a raging celebrity debate - with many adding #internationalwomensday to their statements, and everyone having opinions on whether or not Kim should continue to get naked on the Internet.



When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL

Kim attempted to put an end to the discussion, releasing a statement which read: "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."

However, the debate rages on!

Here is the full wrap of celebs who have weighed in - and which side they are taking!

Kim's longtime "frenemy" and Kanye West's ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, knows all too well what it's like to be slut shamed (especially by Kanye West!). She jumped to Kim's defense today after singer Pink slammed women for using their "tits and asses" for "attention". 

Quote: "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."

Em Rata recently penned an essay for Lena Dunham's 'Lenny Letter' about shaming women for their sexuality. So, she took it to heart when mere days after her letter she saw the same thing happening to yet another woman.

Quote: "Life cannot be dictated by the perceptions of others, and I wish the world had made it clear to me that people's reactions to my sexuality were not my problems, they were theirs." (From her Lenny Letter)

The Modern Family star is emerging as a strong voice for issues surrounding women's bodies - especially, after being vocal about her experience with her breast reduction. She defended Kim with the greatest point of all: #HerBodyHerChoice.

Quote: "I think everyone, men and women, should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies and not be criticized."

Demi posted a timely photo on her Instagram to encourage all women to be empowered through their bodies and look - no matter what form they take.

Quote: "Nudity empowers some. Modesty empowers others. Different things empower different women and it is not your place to tell her which one it is."

Sharon was feeling #liberated, when she stripped down and took her own photo in support of Kimmy K.

Quote: "Kim Kardashian you inspired me!"

You may still think of Abigail Breslin as that adorable girl from Little Miss Sunshine. But she's all grown up now - and she won't stand for sexism! 

Quote: "Slut shaming isn't chill ever."

Miley chose to react to the situation by posting a Kimoji on her Instagram with a message for women to try support other women - and combat homelessness!

Quote: "...love/celebrate one another!"

Pink didn't directly take aim at Kim, but her point about naked women may have been a bit too timely to be a coincidence...

Quote: "It may not bring you as much 'attention' or bank notes as using your your body, your sex, your tits and asses, but women like you don't need that kind of 'attention'."


Chloe Grace Moretz

Chloe was among the first to react to Kim's nude selfie. Kim went hard on her response to Chloe, saying: "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is."

Quote: "@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies"


Bette Midler

Bette is a lovable comedian, but Kim didn't take too kindly to her comments about her photo, Tweeting: "I know it's past your bedtime but if you're still up send nudes. #justkidding"

Quote: "If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera."
