Kim also noted that many weren’t happy with the fact her online posts coincided with International Women’s Day.

Writing on her website and app, she said: “Hey, guys. I wanted to write a post elaborating on my tweets last night. 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?

“It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?!

“I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn’t have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago.”

“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 continued. “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.”

“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,” she concluded. “I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.”

Chloe and Bette hit out at Kim when she shared the first snap, with Chloe writing: “I truly hope you [realise] how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.”

Kim didn’t waste any time in replying, and soon pointed out that Chloe had also posed naked before, to appear on the cover of Nylon magazine.

Meanwhile, Bette joked, “If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera,” a comment that the star wasn’t ready to let slip by unnoticed.
