Emily Ratajkowski and Sharon Osborne have shown support for Kim Kardashian-West after she was criticised for sharing a nude selfie by sharing nudes of their own.

Kardashian-West's naked selfie continues to divide the internet and a number of high-profile women (and Piers Morgan) have shared their thoughts. 

Bette Midler, Chloe Grace Moretz and Morgan all shared critical posts about the selfie on social media which led the reality TV mogul to hit back at each one of them in a series of tweets. On Wednesday Pink posted a message on Twitter, apparently about the selfie, which hit out at women who “use your body, your sex, your tits and asses” to get attention. Miley Cyrus also got involved by telling all the women they were acting “tacky” in the row over the photo.

However, other women have been vocal supporters of Kardashian-West’s right to express her sexuality and hit out at slut-shaming. Ratajkowski, who suggested men who criticise Kardashian-West should read her Lenny essay on celebrating sexuality, led those showing their support by sharing their own nude selfies on Instagram.


Osbourne, a woman from another famous reality television family, then shared her version of the selfie with her 2.37 million followers, thanking Kardashian-West for inspiring her. 

Amber Rose also came to the defence of the 34-year-old on Wednesday by responding to Pink’s criticism on Instagram. “Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualises 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.” (sic)

Rose recently formed an alliance with Kardashian-West through a selfie after she became embroiled in a Twitter spat with her ex-partner Kanye West. After defending the entrepreneur against Pink, she asked Kardashian-West to join the Slutwalk, a campaign launched by Rose to take a stand against slut-shaming.

Demi Lovato bares all

Kardashian-West touched on slut-shaming in an essay in response to the photo to mark International Women’s Day, writing: “It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming - it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.”
