Kim Kardashian West has perhaps an unlikely fan in Piers Morgan, who just wrote a piece defending her controversial, naked cover shoot for Paper magazine.
The 49-year-old journalist opened up in a Daily Mail Online op-ed about all the negative feedback she’s getting from the shoot.
“Predictably, the abuse and ridicule began to pour in as fast as the gasps of shock, awe and admiration,” Piers wrote. “Ms Kardashian-West was apparently a ‘slut,’ a ‘terrible mom,’ a ‘disgrace to the human race,’ ‘a dumb, trashy b-tchh’ etc. Of course, she’s heard it all before, ever since that sex tape was leaked and propelled her into the kind of instant, gigantic cyberspace notoriety that can either crush a woman or make her so strong and impervious to criticism that she builds a $1 billion brand. Kim‘s in the latter category and people hate her for it.”
Piers continued, “It’s time for me to make a shocking admission: I like and admire Kim Kardashian-West…Kim doesn’t take drugs, get drunk, fall out of clubs, cheat on her man, or do any of the other insanely louche things that stars with far greater ‘talent’ often do,” he wrote. “She works ridiculously hard, is good to her fans, and is by all accounts a good, loving daughter, sister, wife and now mom herself.”
He ended it, “Kim Kardashian-West’s laughing all the way to the bank. And all you lazy, snide, snobbish, patronising and hypocritical critics can go kiss her ass – there’s plenty of room.”
Kim seemingly appreciated his piece, tweeting, “XOXOX @piersmorgan”
