Kim Kardashian West posted a photo of her bikini-clad bottom twerking and wouldn't you know it, people of the internet are being rude about it.

"In honor of @styledbyhrush birthday a month ago LOL she taught me how to twerk on this trip so I'm posting it for her," Kardashian West captioned an Instagrammed gif of her butt, twerking in a swimming pool.

Some commenters took the post as an opportunity to speculate that her butt is surgically enhanced.

Others took the opportunity to shame her, because twerking is apparently not a thing mothers should do, in pools or on social media.

Still others called her "disgusting" and "garbage."

And then some just said disgusting, sexualized things about her and her body.

A few people chimed in to pat her on the back and ask the trolls why on earth they cared, or thought she might.

For her part, Kardashian West does not understand why her followers even flinch at another picture of her butt or her boobs or whatever. In early March, for example, a nude selfie she tweeted ignited a firestorm of outrage online, much to Kardashian West's confusion. 

"I truly was baffled when people still cared," she said, according to E! News. "They have seen me naked 500 times."

"If you are conservative and that's how you are comfortable, more power to you," she added. "I respect you. You don't have to look at what I do."

So, for all the trolls who just can't stomach their indignation over provocative Kardashian West posts: Stop following her, already.
