Two days after Kim Kardashian posted a nude selfie on her Instagram, the social media feuds over said photo continue. 

In honor of International Women's Day on March 8, singer Pink posted a statement on Twitter encouraging women to use their brains over their bodies, which many, including Amber Rose, are interpreting as a dig against Kim Kardashian. 

On March 7, the reality TV star posted a throwback photo on her Instagram sans clothes with the caption, "When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL." The photo has caused many celebrities to speak out, including Pink and actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who tweeted in response to Pink, "smart, strong statement. My sentiments exactly .."

On Wednesday (March 9), feminist Amber Rose finally weighed in on the issue on her Instagram in support of Kardashian's photo. In her post, she wrote, "Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies. Pink, We've seen u damn near naked swinging from a rope (beautifully) but what's the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on Instagram? Classism." 

 

Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies. If a grown mother of 2 is comfortable with her body and wants to show it off that's none of ur business or anyone else's. Now, if u wanna talk to kids and be a mentor to young teens, tell them to go to school and to not use their bodies to get ahead?! I'm all for it! But please as a grown woman let another grown woman live as she wishes. That's our problem! We're so quick to down each other instead of uplifting! Pink, We've seen u damn near naked swinging from a rope( Beautifully) but what's the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on Instagram? Classism. Because u sing while ur half naked does that make it "Classy" or is it because u have a "talent"? I'm not dissing at all Pink just curious after u said "You'll never have to make a silly excuse for yourself".

In a follow-up post, Rose reached out to Kardashian and offered her support in light of the "slut shaming" she is experiencing. " Us women deal with it everyday and I'm happy u can speak openly on this now because if anyone knows what it's like to be Slut Shamed it's u!," Rose wrote. "Live it Kim!"
