Kim Kardashian West hits back at critics

accreditation

Kim Kardashian took to her website to respond to the negative social media reactions regarding her nude photos. "In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives, 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?" "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," she wrote. "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." Kardashian also opened up about being positive female role model for North West. "I feel so lucky to have grown up surrounded by strong, driven, independent women. The life lessons I've learned from my sisters, my mother and my grandmother, I will pass along to my daughter. I want her to be proud of who she is. I want her to be comfortable in her body. I don't want her to grow up in a world where she is made to feel less-than for embracing everything it means to be a woman." "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." She initially posted this picture to her Instagram which trended on social media. She received a lot of criticism with people and some celebrities judging her choice to pose nude.
