Piers Morgan: Kim Kardashian Is Killing Feminism With Nude Selfies (PHOTOS)
As Gossip Cop reported, Kardashian posted a photo on Twitter this afternoon showing herself standing topless in a bathroom next to an also-shirtless Emily Ratajkowski. In the picture, both women are giving the middle finger. The caption, “When we’re like…we both have nothing to wear LOL @emrata,” poked fun at the firestorm that erupted when Kardashian originally shared a nude selfie earlier this month.
Ratajkowski was one of the celebrity women to come out in Kardashian’s defense amid a slut-shaming controversy, while Morgan was one of the critics who slammed her. As Gossip Cop noted at the time, Kardashian hit back at him during an uncharacteristic Twitter rant, tweeting, “hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes. thats on some ashley madison type shit #forresearch.”
Now three weeks later, Morgan re-shared Kardashian’s new naked snapshot, but only to slam her again. Putting the picture side by side with a photo of 1920s suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, the former CNN host wrote, “RIP feminism.” Morgan then hit back at those who disagreed with him.
British star Kirstie Mary Allsopp, for instance, replied, “I profoundly disagree, I wouldn’t do it, but feminism is the right to do it.” Morgan said in response, “I don’t dispute their right to get their kit off & flick the bird to millions of strangers. It’s just tacky.”
Another wrote to Morgan, “I’ll tell you what’s ‘RIP feminism’ – attempts at shaming females on social media and not respecting their choices!” The one-time “Celebrity Apprentice” winner wrote back, “Why should all choices be respected? If I make a bad choice, I get rightly disrespected.” Morgan even sarcastically called a woman a “delightful lady” after she tweeted, “@piersmorgan is a body-shaming, slut-shaming, female-shaming piece of sh*t who needs to delete his f*cking Twitter.”
Even amid the backlash, Morgan fired another shot at Ratajkowski. The model and actress sent a number of tweets earlier about sexual liberation. The British personality chose to quote this one: “Even if being sexualized by society’s gaze is demeaning, there must be a space where women can still be sexual when they choose to be.” He snarkily commented, “Oh Emily, enough of this nonsensical pseudo-feminist gibberish. If not for me, then for Emmeline.”
Morgan later went on to show that he’s not entirely anti-Kardashian. Using a photo (see below) of the star on his since-canceled series “Piers Morgan Tonight,” he wrote, “Happier, more tasteful days. @KimKardashian.” Kardashian, who earlier this month wrote a lengthy blog post about being empowered by her body, has not responded. The two are pictured above in 2010 at an “Apprentice” event.
