Calling it like she sees it! Sharon Osbourne took it upon herself to start a feud with Kim Kardashian after catching wind of the reality TV queen’s recent comments about feminism. Not only did Sharon say Kim has no business calling herself a feminist, she basically slut-shamed the Selfish author.

“If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that’s not feminism, that’s being a ho,” the Talk co-host, 64, told The Telegraph in an interview published on Friday, Sept. 2. “And there’s nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are.”

Sharon’s comments come as a surprise after showing support for Kim, 36, in March 2016, when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty was widely criticized for showing off her curves in an Internet-breaking, nude Instagram pic. Not long after, the former America’s Got Talent judge copied Kim’s now-iconic black bar selfie, writing, “@kimkardashian you inspired me! #liberated #thetalk."

Sharon’s shady remarks were seemingly made in response to Kim’s cover story interview with the September 2017 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, in which the E! personality — who previously published an essay on her website titled “Why I Don’t Label Myself a Feminist” — clarified her thoughts on feminism.

“I said once before that I’m not really a feminist,” she told the magazine. “But I feel I do a lot more than people that claim that they’re feminist. To clarify what I said before: I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside.”

And how did Kim respond? With a naked shoot, obviously. YAS KIM. She chucked a pic on Instagram with the caption '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.'

Though she’s received major flak for her provocative social media posts, Kim has said that she feels “empowered” by flaunting her body online. “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,” she wrote on her website last year. “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.”
