Twitter War: Big Pimpin

Jay-Z's hit song may have turned big pimpin into a hip catchphrase, but Demi Moore fails to see the humor in its use. The claws came out after Kim Kardashian "inappropriately" used the term.  

The Twitter war began after Kim posted a Twitpic with the caption, "Big pimpin w @SerenajWilliams @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!"

Demi quickly retaliated with "Are you using the word "pimpin" as in pimping?", to which Kim replied: "Doesn't everyone? LOL... Nothing wrong with dancing with Big Pimpin' by Jay Z in the club! Having a girls night out, gotta love that song!"

As the newest campaigner against child slavery, Demi took offense to the casual use of the word. "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."

Realizing the mess she just brewed, Demi then tweeted, "Clearly I stirred up a s**t storm." Like any good Kardashian, Kim managed to get the last word in as she tweeted, "Good point! I agree! It was just a song not literal."

While Demi should be commended for taking a stance against child slavery, is she taking her new goodwill position a little too far? Words like "pimping" have become desensitized in our culture, but Demi clearly chose to start something with Kim for the publicity. Thoughts?
