Even Amber Rose Is Coming to Kim Kardashian’s Defense After Nude Photo Controversy

As many of you know Kim Kardashian posted a nude photo of herself on //Instagram. And then the Internet collapsed in on itself like a dying star. Ok, not really but it felt like it. Many celebrities decided to chime in on the photo with some firmly against Kim's show of skin (Bette Midler, Piers Morgan and Chloe Grace Mortez were the ones Kim called out on Twitter) and others like Demi Lovato and Bella Thorne supporting her.

One celebrity to speak out against Kim was Pink who wrote a note on Twitter seemingly calling out Kim's need for “attention.” In the message, Pink gave a shoutout to women “using their brains, their strenegth, their talent” saying it may not bring them as much “attention or bank notes as using your body, your sex, your tits and asses, but women like you don't need that kind of ‘attention'. In the quiet moments, you will feel something deeper than the fleeting excitement resulting from attention, you will feel something called pride and self respect.” Now Kim isn't mentioned by name in the note but unless there was another megastar who recently shared a nude selfie to 60 million followers, we can assume Pink was at least influenced by Kim to write the note.

After she did, an unlikely person came to Kim's defense. Former foe, now kinda friend of Kim's, Amber Rose responded to Pink's note with one of her own. She wrote:

Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies. 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. Now, if u wanna talk to kids and be a mentor to young teens, tell them to go to school and to not use their bodies to get ahead?! I'm all for it! But please as a grown woman let another grown woman live as she wishes. That's our problem! We're so quick to down each other instead of uplifting! Pink, We've seen u damn near naked swinging from a rope( Beautifully) but what's the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on //Instagram? Classism. Because u sing while ur half naked does that make it “Classy” or is it because u have a “talent”? I'm not dissing at all Pink just curious after u said “You'll never have to make a silly excuse for yourself”.

 

Amber followed up with another //Instagram inviting Kim to come to her Slutwalk event to speak out against slut shaming. Kim hasn't responded to the invitation but yesterday she did take a stance against her critics in a blog post on her website. She said, “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.” So now that Kim has silenced her haters and has Amber Rose of all people on her side, maybe we can all move on and wait patiently for the next Kardashian thing to get in an uproar over.
