It may have been three against one, but Kim Kardashian definitely held her own.
Late Sunday night, the E! reality star shared a nude selfie with her 62.7 million Instagram followers and 41.4 million Twitter followers. The comments were divisive, to say the least, but Kim paid no mind to her haters and shared another photo of herself Monday night. "Reading my comments like....LOL," she wrote in the caption. Kim, who welcomed son Saint West 13 weeks ago, also clarified that the photo was taken a year ago when she weighed 25 lbs. less than she does now. "I'm flattered some of u guys thought my post earlier was a recent pic!" she tweeted.
After she shared the nude selfie (which she self-censored with black bars), stars—including Chloe Grace Moretz, Bette Midler and Piers Morgan—either criticized or made fun of Kim on Twitter. Bette was the first to say anything, tweeting, "Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera."
Chloë addressed Kim directly, writing, "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies." Later, the actress clarified her stance, writing, "There's a huge difference in respecting the platform that you're given as a celebrity and 'slut shaming' something I never have done and would never do."
Finally, Piers referenced Kanye West's recent tweets about being $53 million in debt—a tweet that was blown out of proportion, according to members of the Kardashian family. "I know the old man's $50 million in debt, Kim - but this is absurd," he tweeted. "Want me to buy you some clothes?"
Kim decided to fight back late Monday night, tweeting, "sorry I'm late to the party guys I was busy cashing my 80 million video game check & transferring 53 million into our joint account." The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star proceeded to call out Chloe, Bette and Piers one by one. "hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes," she tweeted. "thats on some ashley madison type s--t #forresearch."
Speaking to Bette, she wrote, "hey @BetteMidler I know it's past your bedtime but if you're still up and reading this send nudes #justkidding." Kim also tweeted a picture of candy conversation heart with the words "SEND NUDES" written on it. She called her out one more time, writing, "hey @BetteMidler I really didn't want to bring up how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me #dejavu." Kim also shaded Chloë for recently appearing half-naked in NYLON's December/January issue. "let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is," she tweeted of the Little Mermaid actress, who boasts 2.1 million Twitter followers. "your nylon cover is cute boo."

Neither Chloë nor Bette has responded to Kim.
Piers read Kim's tweets in real-time on Good Morning Britain Tuesday. In response, he tweeted, "Fairly sure @kanyewest just seized control of @KimKardashian's phone." A little later, without mentioning Chloë, the TV host wrote, "I've got this @BetteMidler - relax. cc @KimKardashian."
