Kim Kardashian maybe never imagined that one nude selfie would result in this much controversy. But it did, from those taking her side and lining up on Team Kim to proclaim her right to pose nude to those proclaiming her photo as anti-feminist. The star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians penned her own essay on the topic, linking the criticism over her nude selfie to her old sex tape brouhaha and calling it slut-shaming, as the Inquisitr reported.
Joining in the nude selfie battle were several celebrities, who stepped up to pose nude in a show of support for the 35-year-old mom of Saint and West. Among them was Emily Ratajkowski, who posted her own no-top-on pose to support Kim, reported E News.
Emily also tweeted her support for Kardashian against Piers Morgan, who labeled as “depressing” the nude picture.
“Love when a man comments on a woman’s decision to post a nude photo. Her body, her career. Sexist bulls**t,” tweeted the actress.
Sign up Amber Rose for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians team as well. After learning that Pink was among those dissing Kardashian for her nude selfie, Amber Rose headed to social media to defend the reality TV star, reported Us Weekly.
“Damn Pink,” posted Rose. “We were all born naked society sexualizes our breasts 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.”
Moreover, Amber offered an invitation to Kardashian to join in her SlutWalk and speak out about her views.
“Last year at my Slutwalk I told my Slut shaming story. This year I would love for u to come and tell urs. This is an open invite from me to u and ur sisters are welcomed too. Let’s let the naysayers know u are so much more then a sex tape (13 years ago) f—k it own it. Ur a mom and a business woman, a wife, sister and daughter. Hope we can make this happen #AmberRoseSlutWalk2016.”
The feud among the celebrities over that now infamous nude selfie continues to expand, with some firmly on the side of supporting the reality TV star and others against her, noted CBS News.

Ariel Winter ever compared Kardashian to Justin Bieber.
Among the most unexpected supporters of Kim? Sharon Osbourne, who shared her own nude selfie, pointed out Us Weekly.
“@kimkardashian you inspired me! #liberated #thetalk,” wrote Sharon.
Osbourne also added black censor bars, putting in the hashtag for her talk show, The Talk. Fans cheered for Sharon.
As for how Kanye West feels about his wife amid the backlash? Kanye proclaimed that Kardashian is his “muse,” and then took it even further, pointed out Billboard.
“Our modern day everything,” proclaimed West.
The praise came when Kanye was tweeting his appreciation to Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing, who created his collection around the reality TV star.

Also supporting Kardashian is his sister Khloe Kardashian, who wants to use her own platform of her Kocktails with Khloe talk show to bash the haters, a source told Hollywood Life.
“Khloe’s all about girl power, and she is pissed that all these people, especially women, are going after Kim,” revealed the insider.
To challenge those haters, Khloe plans a show involving Amber Rose and her own sister.
“She wants to shut all these b****s up and have one huge show with two of the most iconic women in pop culture: her sister Kim and Amber. This isn’t about ratings. This would be about the three of them celebrating women of all shapes, sizes and career choices. It’s Khloe’s way of sending a big f**k you to all their haters, while simultaneously praising them.”
Amid all this support, Kardashian is struggling behind the scenes in several ways. Since giving birth to Saint, the 35-year-old has had problems taking off her post-pregnancy pounds, an insider told Radar Online. And that weight war has resulted in an emotional battle as well.
“She’s in really bad shape and sometimes has to be dragged out of bed,” revealed the insider.”[Kris Jenner] has suggested to her husband Kanye that she could have some kind of post-natal depression.”
And although Kardashian and West have had marriage problems, with rumors of divorce, Kim is more unhappy than ever before, according to a source cited by OK magazine.
“She’s desperately miserable,” said that source. “He’s humiliated her and her family.”
