Kim Kardashian West sure knows how to give a good "thank you"! The reality TV star is sending flowers to the people who stood up for her after she got some public backlash for posting a censored, yet naked, photo of herself online on March 7.

Although Kardashian West is no stranger to stripping down for the camera, her recent nude selfie split the Internet in two: some believed that she shouldn't be flaunting her body for attention, others believed that showing her body is empowering.

Various celebrities spoke out against the photo, including Chloë Grace Moretz, who said that it doesn't highlight a woman's worth. Other stars supported Kim, saying she should be able to do whatever she wants. Now the people in the later group are getting surprise bouquets.

"Women supporting other women is so powerful," Kardashian West wrote in a letter to Modern Family star Ariel Winter, who came to Kim's defense. Winter previously tweeted, "No one was body shaming @justinbieber when he posted his nude guitar photo so why @KimKardashian? #herbodyherchoice #InternationalWomensDay."

Actress Emily Ratajkowski also received flowers. The day after Kardashian West's photo made waves, Ratajkowski publicly said, "Love when a man comments on a woman's decision to post a nude photo. Her body, her career. Sexist bullsh*t."

"Thank you for the beautiful flowers and note @kimkardashian," she wrote on the Insta post below. "It's so important that we let women express their sexuality and share their bodies however they choose."
