Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian are loyal sisters. They make a habit of “sticking by”each other when there’s trouble, and the latest difficult situation for Kim has brought her youngest sister out in defense of the Kardashian social media queen. A “nude photo controversy” made Kim the target of all sorts of criticism from fans and even from other celebrities, but Kylie isn’t letting her sister go through it alone.

Hollywood Life reports that on March 7, Kim decided to post nude photos of herself to Instagram, and the internet blew up over it. Some fans were proud of Kim, and supported the position that there is no shame in bodies or in sharing photos of nude bodies, especially when you look like Kim Kardashian.
@KimKardashian If i had a body like yours I would be posting nude photos everyday, There is no shame in showing of body confidence <3— LotusFoxy (@ZellerCamille) March 8, 2016
Others were unimpressed, and thought that a Kardashian should be a better role model for young girls, although a lot of people don’t think Kylie, Kim, or any of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are made to be role models.
As Kylie noticed, everyone from everyday fans to Bette Midler had something to say about the throwback nude photos. Midler was very critical of Kim’s choice and made a joke at her expense. “If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera,” she tweeted.

she's gonna have to swallow the camera.
Kardashian was understandably unhappy about the diss from Midler and fired right back at her, suggesting that that should go to bed or post a nude photo of herself.
According to the Daily Mail, Piers Morgan got into the fray as well, questioning why Kim felt the need to post nude photos if she also felt secure in her wealth, success, and fame.
Kylie wasn’t putting up with any of the shade thrown at Kim, even when it came from famous people. She reposted some of Kim’s own “defensive” rant, where Kardashian pointed out that people can diss her all they like, but she’s still raking in the dollars.
sorry I'm late to the party guys I was busy cashing my 80 million video game check & transferring 53 million into our joint account ????????????????????????— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 8, 2016
Kylie also retweeted one of Kim’s nude photos that Kim posted near the end her Twitter rant. It looks like Kardashian got fed up with all the nude photo shade and wanted to let people see that she is free and liberated enough to pose nude if she wants to.
Earlier, Kylie suggested that no one should criticize someone else unless they’ve made sure to walk with a person everyday before making judgments.

Jenner finished by stating simply that Kim is a legend.

Kylie has often pushed the boundaries herself, and really looks up to Kim’s legendary status, even though there have always been rumors of jealousy between the two. Jealous or not, when it’s family under fire, Kylie comes out punching to protect her sisters.
