Piers Morgan vs. Kim Kardashian, round two!
The British journalist famously made headlines when the reality TV star shared her infamous naked photo earlier this month -- and now, he's coming for her again after that topless pic she shared on Wednesday with Emily Ratajkowski.
It started when he shared the side-by-side below, comparing women's rights activist Emmeline Pankhurst to the two half-naked stars. He captioned the pic, "RIP Feminism."
RIP feminism. pic.twitter.com/dqxKla2i5Q— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2016
But he didn't stop there. As Emily and more of his followers started tweeting about backlash to the pic, he went in hard.
Oh Emily, enough of this nonsensical pseudo-feminist gibberish. If not for me, then for Emmeline. https://t.co/VuMgX6KWQW— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2016
It's supposed to be the advocacy of women's rights & equality with men.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
Not, I dare to suggest, topless selfies. https://t.co/XtaogLmJ8t
If women genuinely think this photo advocates women's rights & equality, then feminism as it was intended is dead. pic.twitter.com/8Anm7yPYfI— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
I see my 'RIP feminism' tweet is garnering a lot of attention.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
Many women asking what I'd feel if a man did this: pic.twitter.com/fftKjjxWDl
Well, if Tom Hiddleston began tweeting endless photos of himself topless & flicking the bird, would everyone find it 'empowering' or tragic?— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
Kim/Emily aren't posting these photos to 'empower' women in the cause of feminism.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
They're doing it to make money. pic.twitter.com/Ao330GHAb3
I love women & 100% support gender equality.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
But pretending that topless bird-flicking selfies promote feminism is ridiculous.
I like @KimKardashian but she'd be so much more empowering to women now by proving she can succeed with her clothes on & middle finger down.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
I'm not offended by Kim & Emily getting their t*ts out.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2016
I'm offended by them saying it's in the name of feminism. https://t.co/UXuX2IVeIu
While neither Kim or Emily have commented on Piers' reaction this time around, Kardashian posted a lengthy blog after the backlash of her other pic.
"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?" she wrote on her official website at the time.
As for why she just loves to share such revealing pictures with her fans, she said it makes her feel "empowered."
"I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin," she wrote. "I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me."
"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," she added in conclusion. "I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy."
