It’s hard for Kim Kardashian to make a move without a celebrity dissing her, but that’s what you get when you’re famous for being famous. People who had to earn their fame without a sex tape tend to cop an attitude, and by people, we mean celebrities. Here are 10 of our favorite celebrity Kim Kardashian critics.
Nick Cannon got into hot water with the Mrs. when he went on Howard Stern‘s show and boasted about the women he’s slept with, including Kim Kardashian. When Cannon returned to Stern’s show, he had some redeeming to do. In April of this year, he told Stern that his wife, Mariah Carey, didn’t know who Kim Kardashian is. Technically, Cannon and Carey dissed Kardashian. (Does not knowing who Kim Kardashian is prove just how out of touch Carey is?)
Perhaps it’s more in what she didn’t say that made Naomi Campbell’s response to Kim and Kanye West‘s infamous Vogue cover the ultimate dis. When being interviewed on Australia’s The Morning Show, Campbell was asked what she thought about the pair landing a Vogue cover. She replied, “I do not want to comment,” and then laughed hysterically. The host asked if Campbell thought the two hadn’t earned the right to be on the cover. Campbell answered, “Those are your words, not mine. I’m being politically correct.”
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Campbell wasn’t the only celeb to question the appropriateness of a Mr. and Mrs. West cover. Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted, “Well, I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who’s with me?” Zing!

This was after this hilarious duo did an incredibly uncomfortable knock-off of the already incredibly uncomfortable Kim-and-Kanye “Bound 2” video. We can’t unsee the things these two do.

Chelsea Handler has never been shy about taking a dig at her former co-E! personality, Kim Kardashian. On the red carpet in 2011 at the Glamour Women of the Year event, Handler said that she “luckily” didn’t work in the E! building, so she didn’t have to hang out with the Kardashians.
More recently, Handler also took to social media to parody Kardashian’s “Break the Internet” ass picture with a nude photo of her own bare backside. In March 2014, while promoting her book, Handler said she likes Khloé, “but not the other one.”
On Sunday night, as a guest on Barbara Walters’ The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014, Handler said she was bored with celebrity gossip, and that’s why she stepped away from her show on E!. She told Walters, “I felt that I had enough with the Kardashians before I ever met the Kardashians.” Preach, sister.
Handler wasn’t the only celebrity to render a social media opinion on Kardashian’s “Break the Internet” naked ass picture from the Paper magazine photo shoot. Most of those opinions were tongue-in-cheek jabs, but our favorite comes from Lorde.
The young songstress reposted the pic, with one simple word — “mom.” Lorde succinctly said what the rest of us were thinking, which is that someday North West is going to grow up and see images like this of her mom. Lorde later said she was actually complimenting the mother of one with her post, but we’re not really buying it.
Actress Naya Rivera (who probably owes a debt of gratitude to Kardashian since we have to assume at least part of the actress’ popularity stems from her resemblance to Kardashian) also took the mom road in response to the nude photos. Rivera posted, “I normally don’t. But… you’re someone’s mother….”
These two backlashes instigated an internet debate about whether or not it was OK for a mom to pose like this for the internet. Here’s where the debate begins and ends — picture your mom. Now picture her bare backside oiled up, available to anyone with an internet connection and a keyboard. When you get back from throwing up, we’d like to respectfully submit that there is no debate on the subject.
Our other favorite butt dis came from the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton. In a blog written for a British weekly political magazine, Pippa wrote, “Kim’s aim, apparently, was to break the Internet, but I’m not sure she’s going the right way about it.” Amen, Pippa. Let us clear that up for you — she’s not going about it the right way.
In December, Nicki Minaj starred as Saturday Night Live‘s musical guest and paid a little visit to the Weekend Update segment of the show to impersonate Kardashian. Minaj explained that the “Break the Internet” pictures were taken out of context and provided a backdrop for each of the pictures, so they made more sense. We’re still trying to figure out where Minaj gets off mocking Kardashian, since the “Only” singer makes any provocative thing Kardashian has ever done look like child’s play.
