Kim Kardashian faces backlash for nude photo taken just days after her baby girl is born
Back in May 2016, Kim Kardashian made an announcement at the 20th annual Webby Awards. At the ceremony, which was held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York, she won the 'Break the Internet Award', taking to the stage to make her speech. Signing off, she uttered the now infamous words: "Nude selfies until I die."
Nearly two years later, it seems Kim K's outlook on the world hasn't changed all that much. Almost immediately after Kim Kardashian's third child was born, she was back up to her usual antics on Instagram - and within a few days, this has gone down the nude route.
Earlier this week we learned the news that Kim and Kanye West's third child had been born via surrogate, after the reality star released a statement on her website. The baby girl was born on January 15 at 12:47, and apparently the parents were there every step of the way.
"Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," Kim wrote in the official announcement. "We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care."
Taking the 'Kangaroo Care' approach, wherein the mother maintains uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact immediately after the delivery and for an extended period of time, it seemed like they were going all in when it came to giving their time to this as-of-yet unnamed child. But for someone like Kim Kardashian, the work doesn't stop - and a lot of that work involves Instagram posts.
First, she was criticised by fans after she posted a video to her Instagram story, in which she was seen getting in a "quick workout while she sleeps", before posting a clip promoting a nutritional supplement of vitamin gummies. This left a lot of people wondering how she thought it was a priority to be promoting products on social media when she has a four-year-old daughter, a two-year-old son and a newborn baby.
Now, she has received a bigger backlash after posting a photo of herself yesterday, laying on a bed topless (with her breasts blurred out). Captioning it with "Night Cap", Kardashian drew the ire of many fans for the image, given how close it was to the birth of her child.
I think it's worth considering that it's very unlikely that this photo shoot took place on the day she posted it, with it more likely having taken place in 2017, but being scheduled to be posted this month. However, some still take issue with the timing of the post, as well as a throwback shot of herself on a Rolls Royce in her underwear.
One user wrote: “Really, this is not right... you are a mother,” while another said: “I’m a Kim k supporter all the way, but wasn’t your baby just born? You have time for this?”
This isn't the only controversy Kim has gotten involved with this week, as she recently criticised Lamar Odom after her dissed her sister Khloe.
