Kim Kardashian is fighting back today after receiving criticism for posting a nude selfie early Monday.
One of Kim’s most outspoken critics was TV personality Piers Morgan, who initially retweeted Kardashian’s selfie, quipping, “I know the old man's $50 million in debt, Kim - but this is absurd.
Want me to buy you some clothes?”

“I suggested to Kim, ‘Look, you clearly can't afford any clothes. I will happily step in and buy you some clothes,’ which I thought was a joke,” Morgan told ET on Tuesday. “I woke up this morning to find all hell breaking loose.”
Late Monday night, Kardashian launched a Twitter tirade against the celebs who had publicly criticized her nude pic, including Morgan, Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz. Her response to the TV host seemed to channel husband Kanye West’s recent rants.
“Hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes,” Kardashian tweeted. “Thats on some ashley madison type shit #forresearch.”
“Kim had responded by basically inferring I should stay off Ashley Madison, the cheating website, because this is the kind of activity they do on there in offering to buy married women clothes,” Morgan, who serves as Editor-at-Large for DailyMail.com explained. “I could see she was in a very bad mood.”
Age-shaming aside, Morgan later proudly proclaimed on his Twitter feed that the column was “breaking the Internet.” He also replied to actress and model Emily Ratajkowski, who seemed to be referring to Morgan’s comments on the matter as “sexist bullsh*t.”
“What about the thousands of women currently commenting on it too?” Morgan wrote. “I'd say 90% of reaction to my @KimKardashian column has come from women agreeing with me.”
After replying to her haters on Monday, Kardashian posted another nude selfie, which she captioned simply, “#liberated.”
“I don't think this is very liberating, to be bombarding the world with naked pictures of yourself when you're a 35 year old mother of two very young children,” Morgan told ET, calling the photos “a little desperate.”
