Demi Moore Kim Kardashian Twitter Spar Over The Word “Pimpin'”
Demi Moore wasn’t joking when she decided to devote her online celebrity to putting an end to child slavery: The Indecent Proposal star took socialite Kim Kardashian to task on Twitter this weekend after the reality star TwitPic’d an image with the caption “Big Pimpin,'” a reference to the 2001 Jay-Z song of the same name.
The phrase struck a nerve with Demi, who blasted Kim for “glorifying” the pimp culture and its objectification of women.
The discussion over Kim’s choice of words started after she posted the picture up, which was taken at the launch of Kelly Rowland’s new charity, I Heart My Girlfriends, which will serve as an interactive support system for teenage girls.
Demi took offense, asking her, “Are you using the word ‘pimpin’ as in pimping?”
Kim swiftly replied with: “Doesn’t everyone? LOL…”
“No disrespect I love a girls night out but a pimp and pimping is nothing more than a slave owner!” Demi fumed.
One of Demi’s followers attempted to temper the feud, saying: “She may have meant it in the ‘NEW AGE LINGO’ – as in ‘pimpin’ = Cool?”
In fact, a number of Twitter followers suggested that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty probably used the term in a slang, non-offensive sort of way, but Demi was steadfast in her stance that lingo is not one to joke around with: “It’s not her! we have allowed it 2 B considered cool, but it still is what its!”
“Good point!I agree! It was just a song not literal….” Kim Tweeted simply on the controversy.
