Miley Cyrus has waded into the row which ensued after Kim Kardashian-West shared a nude photograph of herself by telling the women involved to stop acting “tacky”.

Kardashian-West was called out by Bette Midler, Piers Morgan and Chloe Grace Moretz, after sharing the selfie. Despite being someone that usually doesn’t respond to social media criticism, Kardashian replied by going on an unlikely rant taking aim at each of them tweet by tweet.

In the tweets she told Midler it was passed her bedtime, Moretz that people don’t know who she is and Morgan that he shouldn’t be telling someone’s wife to put clothes on.

Ironically, this debate over female sexuality and freedom fell on International Women’s Day.

On IWD, Cyrus referenced the row by sharing a kimoji”- the emoji app series by Kardashian-West - of the reality tv star’s rear on her Instagram. She argued that there were more important things to be discussing and criticised the “overly fortunate women” for acting “tacky as f***”.

Writing alongside the post, Cyrus said: “Dear women, you ALL are acting tacky AF! Why don’t we overly (myself included) fortunate women come together and try to create and bring jobs to other women in desperate need of them so they can support not only THEMSELVES but their families! #happyinternationalwomensday can we all put the c***iness aside for one f****ng day and love/celebrate one another

“PS no matter how hard you (or myself) work NEVER will I feel I am worthy of the comfort I live in... Because so many others while I tuck myself in at night are laying their head on the pavement, dreaming of all the things we take for granted every day. Much love to all my women!!!”

Kardashian-West also chose to mark International Women’s Day in an essay on her website which addressed the reaction to the picture and hit out at the "body-shaming and slut-shaming" she had been subject to.

“I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world," she wrote.
