Selfie patron saint Kim Kardashian went on a tweet spree late Monday night after ruffling some celebrity feathers with a nude throwback photo earlier in the day, and it is a work of social media art.

It all started when the reality star shared a #MondayMotivation photo, one of her favorite post-pregnancy moves. Kardashian has kept a relatively low profile after giving birth to her second child in January—a lot of her Instagram content has come from either hanging out with her sisters or attending her husband’s Madison Square Garden show in February — so a racy throwback is a nice way to remind people, “Hey, I’m hot,” when she might actually be in sweatpants and changing a diaper.

The pic was pretty tame by Kardashian standards. To comply with Instagram’s terms of use, she dropped black bars over her breasts and crotch, effectively editing herself into a bathing suit. A small bathing suit, sure, but at this point who isn’t well-acquainted with Kim K.’s abs and upper boobs?

So it was a little surprising when Hollywood decided that this photo was a good one to weigh in on via Twitter. Everyone from Bette Midler to Chloe Grace Moretz had something to say about Kardashian’s body in the throwback pic:

Kardashian’s initial reaction was measured:

But as the day wore on, and with her Twitter mentions still undoubtedly blowing up, she apparently changed her tune. Late Monday night, Kardashian took a page from husband Kanye West’s book and unleashed a flurry of replies unto the people:

It’s like she stepped up to the podium at a Comedy Central roast and did better than anyone needed her to. Also: to be a fly on the wall of whoever’s family room they workshopped these burns in. Kanye laughing and clapping while Khloe googles Chloe Grace Moretz and yells, “Who is she!”

As a cherry on top of the tirade (and a middle finger to anyone making her feel weird about sharing pics of her body), Kim left us with one last parting nude:

Class dismissed.
