Kim Kardashian sent a special thank you to one of her biggest supporters amid her nude selfie controversy: Emily Ratajkowski. The actress received a beautiful arrangement of white roses and a hand-written note, which the 24-year-old showed to fans on social media.

The message read: "I wanted to thank you so much for your support last week. I saw your tweets and just think it's so powerful when women support other women! So thank you!"

Emily posted a photo of the gift on Instagram, and wrote: “Thank you for the beautiful flowers and note @kimkardashian. It's so important that we let women express their sexuality and share their bodies however they choose.”

Finishing up with a quote from political activist Emma Goldman, Emily added: “Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free.”

Emily defended Kim following backlash over her latest nude selfie

Gone Girl star Emily came to Kim’s defence last week following the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's nude photo backlash. Addressing the criticism, she tweeted: “Love when a man comments on a woman's decision to post a nude photo. Her body, her career. Sexist bullsh*t. @KimKardashian.” The brunette beauty also posted her own racy photo on Instagram, captioned: “What to wear tonight?”

Discussing her controversial selfie in a lengthy essay, Kim 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.”

She added: “It’s 2016. 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. You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.”
