Why Are People So Mad About Kim’s Body Selfie?

When it’s National Selfie Day, there’s always one celebrity who you KNOW will be posting. Hi, Kim Kardashian West.

She’s the self-coined queen of the selfie, and even wrote a book about them, so of course she wouldn’t miss a trick to step up to the plate and show off her snapping skills, would she?

And that’s exactly what she did yesterday when she papped a sexy shot of herself to celebrate the annual event.

‘Wait u didn’t think I would forget about National Selfie Day! DUH’, the mum-of-two captioned the image.

In the shot, we saw Kim clad in a white thong and corset-style top as she allowed her fans to take a good look at her curves. Except, they weren’t very happy about it.

Immediately, the comment box was swarmed with unimpressed Instagram users, who thought that Kim had made an unforgivable error when posting said selfie.

‘You forgot your face!missing the point of a selfie I think’, blasted one, whilst another wrote: ‘A pic of your boobs isn’t a selfie. Wtf.’

‘I love you but you should delete this’, commented another. Blimey.

However, many argued back that Kim deserved a break, because actually, ‘a selfie is a picture of yourself, it doesn’t matter if it’s a picture of your face or your [body].

And the dictionary agrees. ‘A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media’, reads the official definition. So there you go.
