At the top of the week, Kim Kardashian posted a throwback photo on her Instagram account that sparked multiple responses from some social media users.
The censored naked image prompted a statement from actresses Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Mortez, a reveal that didn’t sit well with Kim herself. In a rebuttal similar to her husband, Kanye West’s “stream of consciousness” on Twitter, the multi-millionaire shrugged off the comments and wrote, “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.”
She even denied the thought that Yeezy or her sister Khloe tweeted up a storm under her name on Tuesday (Mar. 8).
Wait I can’t believe people thought Kanye or Khloe hacked my Twitter. I swear I’m funny too!!!

All the controversy surrounding the image later garnered an extended post from Grammy Award-winning singer Pink. On International Women’s Day, the “Raise Your Glass” artist took a moment to “Shout out to all of the women, across the world, using their brains, their strength, their work ethic, their talent, their “magic” that they were born with, that only they possess.” She then added, “It may not ever bring you as much ‘attention’ or bank notes as using your body, your sex, your tits and a**es, but women like you don’t need that kind of ‘attention.'”
Pink’s remarks received mixed responses from the masses, leading the vocalist to add, “You are all entitled to your opinions and feelings and I am open to hear all of it. But it won’t change my mind.”
Last one for the evening: you are all entitled to your opinions and feelings and I am open to hear all of it. But it won’t change my mind

One person who isn’t necessarily concerned with changing Pink’s thought process, but shared that how a woman decides to showcase her body is her own right is Amber Rose. The model/actress took a screenshot of Pink’s public message and wrote her own on Instagram, beginning the lengthy note with, “Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies.” She then continued, in reference to Kim, “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.”
Rose also notes that women should be more concerned with boosting one another with confidence instead of scrutinizing one’s decision.
“We’re so quick to down each other instead of uplifting!” she wrote. “Pink, We’ve seen u damn near naked swinging from a rope (Beautifully) but what’s the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on Instagram? Classism.”
