Kim Kardashian's naked selfie created Twitter spats, debates, and led to an open letter about body-shaming, but now celebrities are showing their support for the US reality star.

Sharon Osbourne is the latest to do a Kim K, and took to Twitter on Wednesday evening (9 March) to say Kim actually "inspired" her.

Now, it seems like everyone is following in Kim's lead. US reality star Courtney Stodden also got in on the act, and Geordie Shore star Nathan Henry did his own version this week too. Kim's little sister Kylie Jenner also did a similar selfie but posed in a black bikini.

Kim had shared her naked selfie via Instagram earlier this week saying "When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL", but she received criticism from Chloe Moretz and Bette Midler.

Penning an open letter on her website, Kim said she was "empowered" by her body and sexuality, and was comfortable in her own skin.

She credited husband Kanye West for helping her to feel empowered and said she wants to "encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world".

She added: "It's 2016. The body-shaming and sl*t-shaming—it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy."
