Something tells us Kim Kardashian didn't expect her girls' night to turn into a serious moral debate with Demi Moore on Twitter.
The E! star began her Sunday night online festivities innocently enough, posting a picture of herself with Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams and LaLa Vazquez in Miami. "Big pimpin w @SerenaJWilliams, @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!" she shared.
That's when Demi took offense!
"Are you using the word 'pimpin' as in pimping?" @MrsKutcher asked. "No disrespect I love a girls' night out but a pimp and pimping is nothing more than a slave owner!"
She continues her soapboxing for several more tweets.
"If we want to end slavery, we need to stop glorifying the 'pimp' culture," she added. "We have allowed it 2 B considered cool, but it still is what its!"
While we don't disagree with Demi's strong and very valid point, we have to applaud Kim's dignified defense.
"Nothing wrong with dancing to Big Pimpin' by Jay Z in the club! Having a girls night out, gotta love that song," she responded. "Good point! I agree! It was just a song not literal."
"Just so ya'll are clear, I like @KimKardashian. I was just making a point about how we have used a word and desensitized the real meaning," Demi explained. "Clearly I stirred up a s**t storm, but 2 create change U have 2 be willing 2 take a risk and be willing 2 provoke thought & conversation."
