Demi Moore starts a Twitter fight with Kim Kardashian about “pimpin”

18Th Annual A Night at Sardi's Benefitting The Alzheimer's Association

I have a love-hate relationship with Demi Moore. More hate than love, but occasionally I do think Demi is right on some things. But this is one of the many times where I really hate her. The story: Kim Kardashian twit-pic’d yet another photo of herself, this time with some friends. Kim captioned the photo: “Big pimpin w @SerenajWilliams @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!” Yes, Kim said that she was “big pimpin” with some friends. So Demi Moore climbed up Kim’s ass about it, sending a flurry of tweets about “pimpin” and slavery. Here’s the screen-capped tweets from Demi Moore’s account and a summary by HuffPo:

Demi Moore does not think the word “pimpin” is cool, despite Jay-Z singing about it, and Kim Kardashian found out by being called out on Twitter.

Sunday night Kim tweeted a photo of herself and three celebrity friends (seen below) at a Miami party with the message, “Big pimpin w @SerenajWilliams @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!”

Demi responded, “Are you using the word “pimpin” as in pimping?”, to which Kardashian replied: “Doesn’t everyone? LOL… Nothing wrong with dancing to Big Pimpin’ by Jay Z in the club! Having a girls night out, gotta love that song!”

Not so fast! Demi, who campaigns against child slavery with husband Ashton Kutcher, wrote, “A pimp is nothing more than a slave owner!.. if we want to end slavery we need to stop glorifying the “pimp” culture.. I was just making a point about how we have used a word and desensitized the real meaning.”

An hour later she wrote, “Clearly I stirred up a s**t storm.”

In the end Kim, who at first defended the word, tweeted, “Good point!I agree! It was just a song not literal.”

I never thought I would say this, but Team Kardashian. For goodness sake, it’s not like Kim was being terribly original, she was quoting a f-cking Jay-Z song, she was hanging out with her girls, and she so obviously did not mean anything about hookers or pimps or slavery or anything like that. So Demi needs to go on her meds or something. And as LaineyGossip points out, Demi and Ashton are friends with P. Diddy, who does more to denigrate women and encourage a “pimpin” culture than any f-cking Kardashian. Does Demi need a new definition of “pimpin” to make this sh-t real? Here you go, Demi. My definition of pimpin: Rumer’s Hollywood career. How much did you and Bruce have to pimp her out to get her a career?

Demi’s tweets screen-capped from her Twitter.

    Hell must’ve froze over… I never thought I would be on Kim Kardashian’s side over Demi Moore!

    It just seems like such a petty thing… unless Demi is a complete idiot she had to know what Kim was talking about! I’m kind of annoyed honestly. Demi just trying to get some PR or what? What a lame story…must’ve been a lame weekend in celebrity land. Yawn…

  2. smallwonder2738 says:

    and furthermore.. if she is trying to “educate” the public on definition… do it somewhere else besides twitter… not all of us live on that damn site!

  3. Raven says:

    Don’t see what the problem is. I agree with Demi’s point. Kim was gracious and “got it.” End of story. Does HuffPo not have more important things to cover?
    Team anyone-but-HuffPo.

  4. bellaluna says:

    Oh for gawd’s sake, what are they, 2? Tweeting is for Twidiots.

  5. guesty says:

    imo…kim is prettier than demi.

  6. Jazz says:

    Anything for publicity. Both of them are desperate for PR. Does Demi even make movies anymore??

  7. Kolby says:

    How the hell old is Demi Moore anyway? Get off Twitter and grow up.

  8. Lisa says:

    “Rumor’s career”…lol. Her and Tori Spelling better be thanking their lucky stars every day of their existence that they come from such high profile A list families, because there’s no way they’d have the careers they have now otherwise. Big pimpin indeed.

  9. Peach says:

    A situation where clearly context needs to be considered. I could understand if she called herself a pimp while rescuing children at a sweatshop. That would obviously be stupid.
    But this was clearly meant in jest. And I dislike Demi even more for making me agree with a Kardashian. Damnit.

  10. JulieNewmar says:

    Does anyone pick up a f*cking phone anymore? FFS people grow the eff up!

  11. Leek says:

    Whatever melts your butter, Demi. Some people have to do whatever it takes to stay relevant.

  12. Feebee says:

    Actions speak louder than words. Demi doesn’t really have a leg to stand on. I think Demi equating the Kardashian’s pimp quote to the slavery of prostitution is like Howard Stern’s talk of Gabby Sidibe’s weight being because he’s worried about her health. Really Demi? Lainey’s right on this particular point, you can’t be concerned about the ‘pimping’ culture and hang out publicly with Diddy. Seriously.

  13. Steeze says:

    Demi and Ashton are the queen and king of doucheland. They try so hard to be cool that they are the complete opposite. Oh and one’s dumber than the next.

  14. may says:

    i can’t stand either one of them
    they are worthless – media wh0res

  15. Marjalane says:

    Demi’s pretentiously overbearing, but I’d love to know the name of her plastic surgeon.

  16. TG says:

    I think Demi has a point.

  17. may says:

    steeze
    couldn’t have said it better
    they are legends in their own minds…lolol

    ashton is dumber than a box of rocks yet he believes himself the second coming
    and demi – well, words escape me.
    did u see her on Morning Joe, wow, she is beyond dense – does she even have a GED?
    they just sit in their mansion and tweet all day and night

  18. Amy says:

    i do like Kim, but i’m with Demi on this, i’m glad she is making a point. even if it is through twitter.

  19. Me! says:

    Demi is absolutely correct. Jay-Z is glorifying being a “pimp”–one who makes money off of women and children in the sex trade industry. Jay-Z did start his career off as a criminal, and this was what he rapped about. If you say it isn’t, then you are clueless. Need to stop using words like this flippantly. Most people who listen to the music are just into the beat, and aren’t thinking of the actual meaning of the word. That makes it seem like it is harmless, but it isn’t. Find a better term to mean “cool”. One that isn’t loaded with a whole bunch of social baggage.

  20. christina says:

    Who cares

  21. Liz says:

    JayZ glorifies many words…….pimp, ho (whore), bitch and that dredded N word. If one is to stop saying these words then, it needs to STOP with the hip-hoppers first!

    Demi needs to have a f!cking conversation with that racist pig JayZ!

  22. Kelaa Khaa says:

    Kaiser I love your closing statement!

  23. anon says:

    ugh go away demi moore! why is she still famous. the last big movie she made was GI JANE for gods sake. shut up

  24. Scout says:

    Ridiculously immature of DM – I agree – grow up – get over yourself – you’re not the center of the universe and the thinking public really does not care about your opinion. Can’t stand Kim K. either.

  25. princess pea says:

    @ Me! – Then maybe she should have tweeted JayZ about it. Of all the people in the world using the term, for as long as it has been urban slang, she only decided to gripe at Kim.

    And, as Steeze points out, Demi is regularly photographed at Diddy’s big parties. So she’s clearly doesn’t have a problem with the hip hop culture’s social baggage when it’s working in her favor.

  26. Atticus says:

    @Me!

    Totally agree. Bill Cosby has spoken at lengths about the power of words and how carelessly using such words like this and the N word in ways that are meant to glorify the words or reduce the harmful intent behind them has done significant damage to the progress the Civil Rights movement made.

  27. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    @Me!

    I totally agree with you, thanks for posting this.

    Maybe when women and little girls STOP being literally pimped out by men, we can stop glorifying the word and use it flippantly. Until then, STFU and stop being complicit by using these words to try to sound cool, pathetic.

    @Kaiser:
    “Does Demi need a new definition of “pimpin” to make this sh-t real? Here you go, Demi. My definition of pimpin: Rumer’s Hollywood career. How much did you and Bruce have to pimp her out to get her a career?”

    What in the hell has gotten into you?? I love your articles because you’re usually so thoughtful and at least attempt to be fair-minded. Are you serious with this sh*t?

  28. eggy weggs says:

    This is a woman who broke pay barriers for women actors … by playing a stripper. Yeah, DM … reprazent!

  29. Ron says:

    Mind your own business. Who has the time to monitor Twit-ter anyway?

  30. brenda says:

    Totally agree with Weggs. You’re gonna throw a hissy fit over a stupid word meant as a joke and talk about the denegration of women while at the same time showing your boobs in movies like STRIPTEASE? Get real.

  31. the other mel says:

    I agree with Demi on this one. Words have power and as a culture, we have been and continue to be de-sensitized. I hate that word. Consider the origin — men who control, abuse and sell women sexually for their own profit. Words like that are disrespectful and misogynistic at BEST – even if embraced by the mainstream.

  32. lena says:

    great message Demi…but using Kim K as your medium to make your point = automatic fail.

  33. lilred says:

    Marjalane: You won’t ever find out the name of her plastic surgeon *she’s never had any work done.*LOL.

  34. Bella Bella says:

    wowzers. grandma got pissy!

  35. JuiceinLA says:

    why why why do I care about this???? GAAAHHHHH! damn it. Must think about attending Scientologistic brainwashing audit to remove part of brain that lends validity to Demi Moore’s tweets….

    aaarrrghhhhhhh………….whimper.

  36. ThunderC*nt says:

    Demi is an uneducated, trash jerk off who just happens to be really pretty.

    Shouldn’t she be embarking on a skincare/cosmetic empire? A best selling novel w/cosmetic surgery & skin care tips (A guaranteed sucesss)?

    But no, she let’s a photographer & Perez Hilton belittle her & expose her lies.

    The problem here is, she should of at least gotten some credits from a 2 yr. college where they make you think. Ya know, a solid liberal arts dgree. All of that textbook reading would have groomed her for the empire she could of had.

    Instead, she’s on Twatter, avoiding people’s suicide demises (2nd time planted) and lies about her age. She’s 50, folks!

    I think she went psychotic when she realized her own kids were not attractive and Rumer being the butt of jokes. It pushed her over the edge just like her mother Virginia King pushed her to the edge when she did a nude layout for High Society magazine in her late 50′s.

    Don’t become this woman!

  37. Mistral says:

    You can’t necessarily disregard the message just because you don’t like or respect the messenger.

    Just because Demi seems like a vapid celebrity most of the time, doesn’t mean she hasn’t been educated by someone with credibility on a particular issue.

    Whatever her medium, whoever her message seems targeted to, she’s reaching a huge audience through this stupid Twittering.

    AND–she happens to be on target here! Completely agree with her.

  38. Eileen Yover says:

    Oh SNAP on that last sentence Kaiser. Too true.

  39. Beth says:

    Is Demi working anymore? She has way too much time on her hands to make such a big deal about “pimpin”.

  40. Cinderella says:

    Oh Demi, why start now. Please stay in your lane.

    That song is over 10 years old for shit’s sake. I’d guess that most folks who have drunk/danced/partied to it do not condone slavery. Sheesh.

    She’s back on her high horse again.

  41. westender says:

    What does she do these days besides go on Twitter?

  42. Valensi says:

    Kaiser, I love you.
    You REALLY hit the nail on the head with that last paragraph. Hell, last sentence. Bravo.

  43. WeSLyN says:

    please people..hip-hop is not the only music genre that glorifies nonsense so exit stage left off your soapbox..let’s be fair…and who even says “big pimpin” nemore

  44. Ruffian9 says:

    Demi, for the love of all that is holy & sacred, please get over yourself. And oh yea….Striptease.

  45. Steph says:

    This really is just a war of the attention whores.

    Honestly, Demi and Ashton’s recent “interest” in slavery? I put this down to their PR people telling them to at least get behind a cause of some description while their spend their lives on twitter, as opposed to taking and uploading stupid pictures and making pointless posts.

  46. Aussie Mama says:

    it’s not a cool word at all. what a stupid thing to say?

  47. Sigh. says:

    Cinderella: Oh Demi, why start now. Please stay in your lane.

    That. Was. Hilarious.

    I guess because Kim K consistently says and does so many lame things, and Demi M apparently just trolls Twitter all day, I just can’t get a bee in my bonnet about this…Kim K is such an easy target, and granny didn’t even have to get up from her rocking chair to aim….

  48. nAynAy says:

    It seems to me that Demi is just trying to stay relevant. I do not think she has anything else going on, so she is now a ‘twitterer’. In my eyes, she is an old has-been.

  49. Richi says:

    Demi looks OLD!!!!! is she Jealous of Kim??? LOL…

  50. nAynAy says:

    You might be right, @Richi
