Kim Kardashian‘s endless quest for attention has manifested in periodic attempts to “break the internet.” She first did so in late 2014, and she pulled it off again on Monday. Sandwiched somewhere in between these nude selfies was a hilarious swimsuit picture that she tried to pawn off on daughter North, who allegedly fumbled around with mommy’s phone and selected a flattering picture to tweet. Sure, Kim.
Kardashian’s newest nude selfie caption, “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL,” could be one those coy things people do. For example, “Oh, I just happened to answer the phone, and I’m wearing nothing. Woe is I.” Those are teasing mechanisms that semi-civilized people pull, but as always, a Kardashian takes things further. The family has made a tidy fortune off shocking people, and they know exactly what they’re doing.
A few celebrities aren’t impressed, starting with Bette Midler, who was once seen calling Ariana Grande a “wh*re” for “slithering around on a couch” in a music video. Midler later sort-of apologized by calling herself “a reformed old wh*re,” and she complimented Grande’s “beautiful” voice. Who knows if Midler will be apologizing to a Kardashian anytime soon, but there’s some harsh shade being tossed.
If you missed the earlier post (and even if you didn’t), here’s an instant replay of Kim’s not-accidental, NSFW picture.
Midler is not impressed. She’s tired of seeing naked Kardashians everywhere and typed, “If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.”
Midler received a variety of responses, but one critical reply came from model Emily Sears, who recently spoke out against unsolicited d*ck pics.
Other users agreed with Midler, and one even made a Beaches joke.
Chloë Moretz appears to agree with Bette too. She tweeted to Kardashian that a woman has more value than simply removing her clothing.
