The power of a Kim Kardashian shows no bounds.
Then came the Twitter rants following the celebrity backlash from Bette Midler, Chloë Grace Moretz and Piers Morgan...

let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 8, 2016
Entitled "Happy International Women's Day" (which occurred on Mar. 8th), Kim penned the #straightup note in response to the comments she has been receiving after posting a photo of herself nude in front of a mirror.
"I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives," the mother of North and Saint West writes. "I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime — and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?"
The 35-year-old then goes on to note how her choice to show off her body always seems to circle back to her sex tape.
"I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn't have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago.
"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."
"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."
And other prominent female celebrities are backing Kim up and expressing their support for the reality star:
Ariel Winter from "Modern Family"
I think everyone, men and women, should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies-- and not be criticized.— Ariel Winter (@arielwinter1) March 8, 2016
Rowan Blanchard from Disney Channel's "Girl Meets World"

Love when a man comments on a woman's decision to post a nude photo. Her body, her career. Sexist bullsh*t. @KimKardashian— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) March 8, 2016
Also love that when a woman stands up for herself everyone thinks it must be her dude speaking for her. @KimKardashian— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) March 8, 2016
This is in relation to many suggesting Kanye West was tweeting in Kim's place:
Wait I can't believe people thought Kanye or Khloe hacked my Twitter. I swear I'm funny too!!!— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 8, 2016
Anybody who tries to say how a woman chooses to display their OWN body is wrong, is severely misinformed and misguided.— Abigail Breslin (@yoabbaabba) March 8, 2016
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 cuntiness aside for one fucking 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!!!!
Yes, even though Cyrus doesn't drop Kim's name in the post, that is indeed a Kimoji (butt).
Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast 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. Now, if u wanna talk to kids and be a mentor to young teens, tell them to go to school and to not use their bodies to get ahead?! I'm all for it! But please as a grown woman let another grown woman live as she wishes. That's our problem! We're so quick to down each other instead of uplifting! 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. Because u sing while ur half naked does that make it "Classy" or is it because u have a "talent"? I'm not dissing at all Pink just curious after u said "You'll never have to make a silly excuse for yourself".
Rose criticizes Pink's comments, which were believed to be targeted at Kardashian.
Damn straight, Demi!
Celebrity status aside, we applaud Kim for finding empowerment in showing off her female form and making that clear. And as Elite Daily writes, "Whether she chooses to exist in the public eye, walk around butt-naked or join a nunnery, no woman deserves to be picked apart ceaselessly for her benign actions."
