Kim K And Emily Ratajkowski’s Defiant Selfie Sparks Debate
Naked selfie double-trouble.
What does it take to break the internet? A topless selfie of two hot brunettes. Well, not any brunettes, but Emily Ratajkowski and Kim Kardashian West.
Who knew there’d be a sequel to Kim’s raunchy naked selfie from last month, which got more attention than Donald Trump’s questionable political statements and Kanye’s batshit crazy Twitter feed combined.
Seems like Kim isn’t planning to put on clothes anytime soon. Instead, she got support from her friend and top model Emily Ratajkowski, who openly supported Kim’s attitude towards naked selfies by posting her own version of Kim’s topless-bathroom-selfie – seemingly the hottest Instagram trend among female celebs.
The two – excuse the pun – ‘breasties’ stood in front of what looks like a public bathroom stall with nothing but a black bar covering their nipples while flipping the middle finger, presumably aimed at all the haters of Kim’s previous topless snap.
While Kim tagged the pic with “When we’re like…we both have nothing to wear LOL @emrata”, Emily went for a more meaningful caption: “We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality. #liberated” Word!
As with everything involving nudity, the selfie sparked a heated debate on social media over whether posing topless is liberating or degrading. Mail Online editor-at-large Piers Morgan made his opinion very clear with a tweet declaring feminism dead and posting a picture of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst next to Kim and Emily’s selfie.

Morgan followed up his statement with more than a dozen tweets responding to supporters of the topless selfie, throwing around words like “tacky” and “ridiculous” to describe the photo and stating that Kim and Emily “aren’t posting these photos to ’empower’ women in the cause of feminism. They’re doing it to make money.”

While Kim stayed away from commenting on people’s reaction on social media, Emily followed up the selfie elaborating on why she regards posing topless as feminist.
We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality. #liberated

True that, Emily, true that.
Regardless of whether a topless selfie is indeed feminist or not, we’re pretty sure Kim and Emily are very happy with all the attention their tweet has been getting. We can’t wait to see what’s next in the controversial selfie-world of Kim K.
Comment: What do you think – are these nude selfies empowering or just plain tacky?
