Kim Kardashian challenges Instagram censorship policy with topless photo
Kim Kardashian's no stranger to posting salacious content. After all, she first received major media attention in 2007, when her sex tape with the singer Ray J leaked. (Or as her husband Kanye West put it in the song Clique: "My girl a superstar off a home movie!") Over the past decade, we've gotten to know Kim pretty well on her reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and she's shown off that famous curvy figure in countless photoshoots. You'd think there's nothing else she could do to surprise us (besides pick unusual names for her kids.)
However, today Kim shared an extremely revealing photo on Twitter - even for her - that is turning a lot of heads (and make a lot of people at work suddenly close their tab). Previously, she showed off her controversial new "Bo Derek braids" hairstyle on Snapchat. Now she tweeted a photo of herself wearing nothing but skimpy white underwear and a fur coat. (Uh, is this a private photo for Kanye that she accidentally sent out as a tweet?) Her exposed breast is blurred out, but just slightly, so, sorry, we had to add a black box. (For the original one, check Kim's Twitter account, and, uh, make sure your door's closed.)
So far, Kim's not-safe-for-work tweet has over 10,000 retweets and 40,000 likes. In the replies, some people criticize her for posting such a revealing photo, after just welcoming her third kid via her surrogate. (Not the most mature behavior for a young mother.) Meanwhile, other people praise her body - which, let's face it, looks pretty damn good. And some of the comments are just funny, ripping on her "Bo Derek" braids and "home movie" past:
"You should have blurred out your hair instead."
"That’s not how coats work Kim"
"why u blur it as if we ain't already seen ur entire ---hole"
"You’re aware you have children now, right?"
"why would you feel this was important to share with anyone other than your husband?"
"Free the nipple girl!"
"Just the inspiration I need to get on the treadmill. You look fanf-----ntastic."
Kim seems to be on a sexy selfie streak, as just last week she shared revealing photos of herself in crystal underwear (and very strategically placed forearms). A couple weeks before that, she sparked a backlash, by sharing a 'disgusting' picture of herself lounging in the kitchen, in her underwear. (Although some people were more grossed out that she standing in the kitchen barefoot.) Hey, if you've got it, flaunt it, I guess.
I know this isn't a very surprising story. This just in, Kim Kardashian posted a salacious photo! In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet. However, these recent photos are so revealing they might challenge Instagram and Twitter's censorship policies. (Although not everyone is complaining about them!)
