Kim Kardashian can't do anything quietly. If she goes to get frozen yogurt, it's a story. If she celebrates her sister's birthday, it's a story. And if she goes on a family vacation to Armenia, well, Lord help us all.
So it's with absolutely no shock that we say the following: Kim Kardashian posted a naked selfie of her baby bump, and the world freaked out.
Ironically, the reality star cited swirling Internet rumors and gossip as the reason for taking the scandalous pic in the first place. Apparently there are some people out there who think that Kardashian doesn't look pregnant enough—and others who think she looks too pregnant—and thus believe that she must be faking it all. You can't make this stuff up.
"First they say I'm too skinny so I have to be faking it...Now they say I'm too big so I have to be faking it...SMH," she wrote alongside a mirror shot of her ever-growing belly. "I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different!"
As expected, reactions were swift and they were sharp. At the time of this publishing there have been over 25,000 tweets about this selfie (belfie? bumpie?) alone. Clearly America isn't exactly busy at work today, but who are we to point fingers? There's no denying that reading these endless opinions is entertaining.
Like with any Kardashian family occasion (if yet another naked snap can really be called an occasion), reactions are all across the board. There is a sizable contingent of tweeters who are calling foul on this potential overshare—especially since it happened to occur amid Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday celebrations. Might we be bearing witness to a little sisterly jealousy?

And finally, she's got her own little army of belfie defenders pointing out (rather truthfully) that she is not nearly the first celebrity to pose naked while pregnant, but she is most certainly the one taking the most flack. It's food for thought, for sure. We'll be pondering that while we work on our own best belfie angles.
