The internet is mocking Kim Kardashian after she stripped naked and climbed a tree

The Kardashians: they just can't help themselves, can they? They have to be the most attention-seeking/grabbing (whichever way you see it) family in the world. Just when you think that they have disappeared for a while, there they are, back on your screens! You cannot escape them. Whoever does their PR does a wonderful job, the media is transfixed with this group of sisters, despite the fact that they seemingly have no talent whatsoever.

Kim Kardashian is the ringleader of the gang, and she has made a name for herself by getting naked for the cameras, as much as anything else. That's why we shouldn't be surprised by her latest attempt to "break the internet", although her choice of pose is just... well, odd?

The reality TV star, who famously got fully naked for a PAPER magazine cover in 2015, has been mocked online after sharing her latest nude shot with her 102 million followers on Instagram. The black-and-white snap was shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and sees the star standing up a tree completely nude except for a pair of boots. However, not as full-frontal as her last shoot, Kim's modesty is protected by two small black stars where her nipples would be.

Kim posted the image on Instagram alongside the caption: “So honoured to have been photographed by Mert and Marcus for their book new book! 20 years in the making! It's out Sept 7.”

Unsurprisingly, as it involved Kim Kardashian, the internet went into meltdown, with plenty of people laughing at Kardashian's pose. Others were quick to criticise the star for stripping off and shifting attention away from Hurricane Irma which is currently threatening the US (although, how the two are related, I'm not sure).

Plenty of commenters on Instagram weren't impressed with the star either, with one user saying "Im so sick of this woman" and another saying "Tbh even dogs can respect themselves more than Kim lmao". However, some users stuck up for Kardashian, saying: "You have to have the most beautiful body in the world!"

As mentioned, the star isn't a stranger to stripping off for the cameras having previously caused controversy for a naked bathroom selfie, with users on Twitter calling her "classless". Kim recently opened up about her tendencies to pose naked online, saying it makes her feel "confident".

"If doing sexy shoots makes me feel confident, then I'm okay with it," she said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. "That might not be appropriate for some people, and there's a time and a place."

"There's certain things I'll show my kids and certain things I won't show my kids. But generally, I am okay with it. In moderation."

For me, I don't see the correlation between Kim K posting this photo and what it has to do with a hurricane, and think that's more prejudice towards her than anything else. My problem with this photo is purely that it's really, really weird. What is that pose? Why has she climbed the tree naked? I have so many questions.
