MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – On Tuesday, March 8, Kim Kardashian hit back at the famous personalities who called her out on the nude photo she posted on her social media accounts.
Kim started her Twitter rant by clarifying that the photo she posted was a year old, and taken when she was 25 pounds lighter. “Sorry I’m late to the party guys, I was busy cashing my $80 million video game check and transferring $53 million into our joint account,” she added.
I'm flattered some of u guys thought my post earlier was a recent pic! That was my blonde moment a year ago & 25lbs less! #MondayMotivation— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 8, 2016

A few weeks ago, Kim’s husband, Kanye West, tweeted that he was $53 million in personal debt and asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion into his ideas.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kim’s mom Kris Jenner explained that Kanye must have meant that he had spent $53 million into his clothing line over the past 15 or 20 years.
Kim then proceeded to tweet directly at those who commented on the photo – actresses Chloë Grace Moretz and Bette Midler, and TV personality Piers Morgan.
Not everyone criticized Kim for her photo, though. On Twitter, media personality Sharon Osbourne posted a photo of herself inspired by Kim’s nude selfie.
Actress Amber Rose also defended Kim, reposting a message from Pink that many thought to be directed at Kim. Amber said, ” 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.”
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”.
When Kim tweeted at TV personality Piers Morgan, he was hosting the live morning show Good Morning Britain.
Earlier, Piers had tweeted an offer to buy Kim some clothes, playing off Kanye’s tweets that he was $53 million in debt.
I know the old man's $50 million in debt, Kim – but this is absurd.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 7, 2016
Want me to buy you some clothes? https://t.co/hEA9osB2QF
Kim told Piers that he should never offer to buy a married woman clothes, bringing up Ashley Madison, an online dating service that caters to people in committed relationships.
Piers has since retweeted Kim’s response and posted his reaction, “Fairly sure Kanye West just seized control of Kim Kardashian’s phone.”
Kanye is known to go on long rants on Twitter. Aside from saying he was $53 million in debt, Kanye also took to Twitter to air his views on mentioning Taylor Swift in one of his songs.
On Twitter, Bette said, that “Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.”

she's gonna have to swallow the camera.
In response, Kim jokingly asked 70-year-old Bette to send her nudes and followed it up by saying that Bette had sent her gifts before in an attempt to be friends, only to take a hit at her now.
Chloë Grace Moretz
Meanwhile, in a two-part tweet, Chloë spoke about the kind of example Kim was being for younger women: “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.”

@KimKardashian – just our bodies.— Chloë Grace Moretz (@ChloeGMoretz) March 7, 2016
In reply, Kim implied that Chloë wasn’t famous, saying, “Let’s all welcome [Chloë Grace Moretz] to Twitter, since no one knows who she is. Your Nylon cover is cute, boo,” she said, referring to Chloë’s December/January magazine cover.

Chloë later defended herself against those who criticized her in turn, saying, “There’s a huge difference in respecting the platform that you’re given as a celebrity and ‘slut shaming,’ something I never have done and would never do.”

Kim ended her tirade with a cartoon version of herself drinking tea, and another nude photo of herself, captioned “#liberated.”
