I woke up this morning on the receiving end of a tweet from the most followed and famous of her kin, Mrs. Kim Kardashian West, who curtly "clapped back" at the three loudest voices, Bette Midler, Piers Morgan, and Chloë Grace Moretz, who all tweeted yesterday about Kim's nude selfie. You see, when Kim Kardashian posts a nude selfie, it literally becomes a Facebook trending topic, something that everyone—and I mean that in a very literal way—talks about, spilling hundreds of virtual pages of e-ink.
But, the reason we got involved—which, is obviously quite exciting—is because Kim congratulated Chloë on her recent NYLON cover, in which the young actress is gorgeously, dramatically styled wearing what appears to be little clothes on.
let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 8, 2016
"SCREAMING," our assistant editor Yasmeen Gharnit said, who has grown from being warily suspicious of the Kardashian machine to someone who is drawn to it, like a silvery haired moth to a celluloid flame.
Chloë Grace Moretz, herself a thoughtful, evolving actress, pointed out that Kim Kardashian should use her immense, trending topic-enabled platform to, "Realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than our bodies." She immediately followed up: "There's a huge difference in respecting the platform that you're given as a celebrity and 'slut shaming' something I never have done and would never do."
