Piers Morgan isn’t buying Kim Kardashian’s claims that she’s behind those “funny” tweets about her nude selfie. Kardashian is making headlines for a controversial nude selfie she posted, as well as the second nude selfie she posted after the backlash over the first one, but despite what Piers Morgan says, Kim wants all of her haters to know: Those snarky retorts posted on her Twitter account were all her.
While Piers Morgan thought the tone of the tweets sounded like Kanye West, the Keeping with the Kardashians star set the record straight by assuring fans that she, in fact, sent the tweets.
Wait I can't believe people thought Kanye or Khloe hacked my Twitter. I swear I'm funny too!!!— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 8, 2016
After the throwback nude selfie was posted, several stars, including Bette Midler, actress Chloe Grace Moretz, and Piers Morgan, responded to tell Kimmy she should put some clothes on and try to be a better role model for young girls. Piers Morgan went so far as to joke that while he knows Kim’s husband Kanye West is in deep debt, maybe he could help her out.
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’s response to Piers’ suggestion of a clothes shopping spree? Well, it wasn’t pretty.
“Hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes. thats on some ashley madison type sh*t #forresearch.”
The media-savvy reality star went on to assure Piers and everyone else that she and her husband are doing just fine financially.
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
Indeed, the tone of some of Kim’s tweets were snarky as she tried to defend her brand after the backlash. Not only did she call out Bette Midler for being old and a “fake friend,” but she invited the world to meet Chloe Grace Moretz because “no one knows who she is.”
After reviewing the posts and their telltale tone, Piers Morgan came to the conclusion that Kanye West was behind the tweets.
Morgan even went so far as to tell the rapper to stop trying to be his wife.
Is it too late to talk you out of pretending to be Kim? https://t.co/BuOe5ROZ98— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 8, 2016
Piers Morgan is pretty passionate about this topic, so much so that he penned an entire article for the Daily Mail about it. In his manifesto, Piers wrote that it is time for 35-year-old Kim to put her clothes on.
Morgan first gave the mom of two props for working so hard to develop her brand, and he even reminded readers that he defended her against “slut shaming” over the previous nude selfie that “broke the internet” in 2014.
“Kim’s ruthlessly exploited every crevice of her body in a way so spectacularly successful that it’s turned her into a multi-millionaire…Until recently, I’ve had no problem with this. She works hard, has a keen eye for fashion and beauty lines, and has proven herself to be a skilled self-publicizing marketer.”
Indeed, just two years ago, Piers Morgan praised Kardashian for being a good person and a hard worker, and he told the patronizing hypocritical critics where to go.
“Kim doesn’t take drugs, get drunk, fall out of clubs, cheat on her man, or do any of the other insanely louche things that stars with far greater ‘talent’ often do. She’s good to her fans, and is by all accounts a good, loving daughter, sister, wife and now mom herself… Kim Kardashian-West’s laughing all the way to the bank.”
But two year later, Piers has had a change of tune. Not only does he think it’s time for Kimmy to do the “unthinkable” and get dressed, but he questioned the tone of her mean Twitter responses to Mortez and Midler, mainly because she’s usually much sweeter on social media.
“All of this was a little odd since Kim’s usually very nice and polite on social media, in direct contrast to Kanye whose Twitter rants have grown steadily more insane and abusive in recent weeks… In fact, the tone and wording of the tweets led me to suspect Mr. West may have seized her phone.”
And Piers added that if it was actually Kardashian behind the tweets, then she has now “morphed into a bragging, taunting female version of her other half.” Morgan also added that he thinks Kim’s “rather desperate attempt to ‘break the internet'” is happening because her younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner are starting to steal her social media thunder.
“Every supermodel, movie and pop sex symbol (with the exception of the increasingly grotesque and embarrassing Madonna) knows there comes a time when you have to hand the baton onto the next generation, however reluctantly…That moment of truth has arrived for Kim Kardashian.”
Piers Morgan appealed to the KUWTK star to be a far more powerful role model for young girls — and her own daughter North West — by finding a new way to get attention.
