Kim Kardashian poses in nothing but boots in a tree, faces backlash for ill-timed post

Kim Kardashian knows how to break the internet. And the reality star is back doing just that with a newly released image from a Vamazing - Live amazing! (or lack thereof) shoot with acclaimed??photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot.

For the image, which will be featured in a new book from the pair known colloquially as simply Mert and Marcus, the 36-year-old is seen climbing a tree and wearing nothing but hiking boots (and, for the Instagram censors, black stars strategically covering her chest).

?€?So honored to have been photographed by Mert and Marcus for their book new book! 20 years in the making! It?€?s out Sept 7th,?€? the??reality star captioned the post.

Needless to say, Kardashian?€?s racy display has sent social media into a frenzy, with the Instagram attracting more than 1 million??likes in less than a day.??And while she has a lot of fans who dig it, there?€?s also the critics, some of whom found the picture particularly offensive in light of Hurricane Harvey?€?s destruction, the DACA repeal, and other monumental events.

In March last year, Kardashian caused quite a stir when she shared a selfie on Twitter, and she later defended her decision to do so in a candid post.

She wrote: ?€?I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world.?€?

She also added: ?€?The body-shaming and slut-shaming ?€‘± it?€?s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality.?€?
