Helena Christensen is lashing out at folks who think it's OK to talk negatively about Kim Kardashian's body while she's expecting.

"It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian," the supermodel wrote in an open letter posted on The Huffington Post. "It's enough that they persistently project a negative focus on women's physical shapes; but a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low."

Christensen added, "Whatever else the taloid-media feel a sick need to spew out of their venomous bowels, let that be their lame choice. But there should be some moral compass. It doesn't matter who the woman is or what she does. No one should ever be publicly judged for their body, but to attack an expecting mother is sacrilegious and just plain wrong. A pregnant woman should not be criticized for her shape, period!!"

Kim Kardashian gives in to first pregnancy craving

Kardashian herself seemed to share Christensen's sentiment when asked by Jay Leno during an appearance on Thursday's Tonight Show about the sometimes-harsh criticism regarding her physique.

"I think it's a little bully-ish to call a pregnant woman fat," she said. "I mean, what do you expect?"
