Demi Moore Not Amused With Kim Kardashian’s Use Of ‘Pimpin’

Demi Moore used her Twitter account to try to bring about change with the way people use the word pimpin’. Kim Kardashian was the “Tweeter” who stirred up Demi’s feelings over the word.

It started with Kim’s tweet:

“Big pimpin w @SerenaJWilliams @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!”

Demi’s reply:

“Are you using the word “pimpin” as in pimping?”

Kim tried to laugh it off:

“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!”

And Demi shares her intolerance for the use of the word:

“No disrespect I love a girls night out but a pimp and pimping is nothing more than a slave owner!” adding in another post, “if we want to end slavery we need to stop glorifying the “pimp” culture”

Demi soon realized she stirred up some controversy:

“Clearly I stirred up a s**t storm, but 2 create change U have 2 be willing 2 take a risk and be willing 2 provoke thought & conversation.”

Kim didn’t let it ruffle her feathers:

“Good point!I agree! It was just a song not literal”

Demi smoothed things over, wanting to make sure people understood that she likes Kim:

“Just so ya’ll are clear I like @KimKardashian I was just making a point about how we have used a word and desensitized the real meaning.”

What’s your take on the use of the word? Do you think we’ve desensitized it?

    Here ya go you bunch of crazies

    BIG PIMPIN: “To be cool. To be flashy and popular with women. Pimp doesn’t usually refer to the classic definition of pimp as a manager of prostitutes. In Hip-Hop slang, to say ‘you’re a pimp’ is to pay a guy a complement. A friend of mine overheard a kid say ‘Winston Churchill was a pimp,’ meaning that Churchill was an awesome personality.”

    Demi Moore is so far behind the times she has no biz commenting on anything Kim K says or anyone 30 years younder than her for that matter. All the plastic surgery in the world isnt gonna change the fact shes like 60 and it’s so pathetic that anyone cares what she thinks. Just keep takin your geritol honey and leave the kids alone…

    Since when did pimping mean anything else besides what it really is? A pimp is someone who earns a living off a stable of prostitutes. You can paint what ever pretty little pictures you want about what you think this word means but there it is…and just because Jay Z raps about it doesn’t make it ok.

    There are alot of words that have alot of different meanings

    Demi Moore has no biz commenting on what Kim K or anyone 30 years younger than her has to stay. She really showed her grandma age by even saying anything. All the plastic surgery in the world isnt going to change the fact that shes like 60 and just embarrassed herself by trying to understand the current lingo. Focus on how to change the fact there is no plastic surgery options for hands which show your true age and leave the kids alone…..

    Good for her. I’m not a fan of hers at all, but she’s got a point. Sex slaves, sex trafficking, abuse…these are all related and in a way we have become too numb.

    Well, I wasn’t amused by Demi’s performance in Striptease. Big ole hypocrite.

    It’s not dumb taking offense to a word that denotes a man whose job is centered on taking advantage of women. It’s dumb not to recognize that.

    Demi more should shut it. Who the hell is she?
    The twitter Emily Post? Get a job and stop policing twitter, has been.

    I really agree with you. I think Demi was just trying to stir the drama pot. Of course she has a point, but I don’t think it was a the correct forum in which to voice her opinions. If she had a problem with it, she could have sent Kim a private email. She probably would have gotten much more out of it. But because it was done publicly, through twitter, all Kim could do was damage control rather than really respond to Demi.

    It just reminds me of what girls in High School do..

    Geeze, its obviously an attempt on Demi’s part to attach herself to someone current and in the blogs, and she latched on to KK tweet to make the gossip pages! Since when would Demi Moore care about what KK says on Twitter??? So stupid…..but here we are talking about her…Mission accomplished! ):

    You’re right there are many words that have other meanings, like FAG. And ignorant people use this word to a derogatory way completely dismissing the real meaning. It is similar to the “slang” use of pimp. Sex trafficking is a world wide epidemic. Men sell women into sexual slavery and these men are known as PIMPS. It’s a disgusting and horrible act. American culture turns it into a cool-guy phrase and dismisses what it really means. You sound so uneducated and vacuous. Educate yourself and you may come to understand the greater meaning behind these things.

    I agree with Demi, the younger generation will not see her point of view which is very valid, this generation is desensitized to so many little things that goes on in socieity that can make big changes in the way we see the world and relate to each other, Most of the stuff that goes on today is just ok, because they see it on tv, or hear it in music,, Good for you Demi,

    sure demi made a big deal of innocent fun by kardashian, however she does have a valid point.

  16. Striptease says

    Demi went WAY over the top with this one, sorry but she really showed a dumb side on this one

  17. CaptainSpauldingToTheRescue says

    I totally agree with Demi! I hate that being a “pimp” is somehow this cool thing. Educate yourselves, people. There are a few documentaries out there that would surely change your mind (just to name one way to go about it). It’s not just a “slang” word, it has a clear definition and contrary to what many think, it’s not a cool and glamorous one.

    Bloody hell, it depends on how you use that term that matters
    it does not just mean a Pimp as the most common meaning as in owning prostitutes educate yourself
