Kim Kardashian Releases a Formal Statement to Shut Down Haters

Kim is over your comments on her nude selfies. 

Yesterday, Kim Kardashian somehow managed to shock simultaneously no one and everyone by posting yet another semi-nude selfie on her social media accounts.

The move sparked responses from masses of Internet trolls and even a few celebs, including the likes of Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz, who thought Kim might want to consider chucking on some clothes.

 

 

When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL

Today, in perhaps a more surprising move, Kim released a full statement addressing those who take issue with her nakedness.

The statement called on those who continue to slut-shame Kim for her sex tape that was leaked 13 years ago. 

She says she is "empowered by [her] body", and said she would not live her life "dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality". 

While the statement is restricted to paying subscribers of her website, ELLE published the full statement on their website. It reads: 

Hey, guys. I wanted to write a post elaborating on my tweets last night. In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives.

I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime—and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?

It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?!

I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn't have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago.

Let's move on, already. I have.

I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world.

I am empowered by my husband, who is so accepting and supportive and who has given me a newfound confidence in myself. He allows me to be me and loves me unconditionally.

I feel so lucky to have grown up surrounded by strong, driven, independent women. 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.
