Kim Kardashian Sends Ariel Winter Flowers for Nude Photo Support
The image drew criticism from the likes of veteran entertainer Bette Midler and actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who accused Kardashian of being a bad role model to young girls, while Abigail Breslin, Modern Family’s Ariel Winter, and Gone Girl star Emily Ratajkowski spoke out in defense of the mother-of-two. Now Kardahshian has expressed her gratitude to her famous fans for taking her side by sending out bouquets of white tulips and ivory roses. Winter posted a snap of her surprise delivery on Instagram on Thursday, showing off the handwritten note Kardashian had penned for her.
“Ariel – Hey I wanted you to know I saw your tweets last week and I really appreciate your support,” Kardashian wrote on the bouquet’s accompanying card. “Women supporting other women is so powerful! xoxo Kim.” Earlier this week, Ratajkowski shared a similar picture of her gift on Twitter, after showing solidarity with Kardashian by posting her own nude snap online.
“Thank you for the beautiful flowers and note @kimkardashian,” the 24-year-old wrote beside the photo. “It’s so important that we let women express their sexuality and share their bodies however they choose.” Kardashian initially snapped back at her detractors with cutting comments online, but on March 8, in celebration of International Women’s Day, she took to her blog to call for an end to the nasty criticism. “I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives…” she began. “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.”Thank you for the beautiful flowers and note @kimkardashian ? it’s so important that we let women express their sexuality and share their bodies however they choose. ✌?️??”Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being.
