Kim Kardashian's Instagram Post About Katie Couric

The Great K Kerfuffle Update: Katie Couric Apologizes to Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian hasn't done much social media sharing since giving birth to baby North West in July, but today the new mom took to Instagram to air a grievance about a baby gift that she received from talk-show host Katie Couric. Kim posted a photo of the present that started it all — a sweet polka-dot nightgown from Barneys — with two ominous hashtags: "#IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkSh*t."

Yikes. Well, here's a bit of backstory: Katie sent the gift to Kim and Kanye West last month, after North was born, but before her name was North (hence the comment about continuing "the K tradition"). However, this week, InTouch Weekly ran an interview with Katie in which she expressed confusion over the Kardashian phenomenon, saying, "I don't understand — why are they so famous? I think it's mostly teenage girls that are interested."

Clearly, Katie's comment has rubbed Kim the wrong way, but do you think it warrants an Instagram broadcast? Let us know below whether you're on Team Kim or Team Katie!

Update: Katie Couric apologized to Kim in a statement: "I've met Kim before, and I think she's a really sweet person. I was responding to a reporter's question and explaining how I'm intrigued by the public's fascination with her family. I didn't mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."

What are they famous for anyway nothing really. Except for their dad being a big time lawyer and Kim doing the sextape with Ray J. Other than that nothing crazy fame ppl who happen to have a reality show that people love to watch them at like idiots on. Kim really needs to get over herself because Katie was right the does attract teen audience. She needs to stop acting so childish that wasn't call for.

I don't think there is anything wrong with what Katie said because, well let's face it, why are the Kardashians famous again? They're one of those celebrities who started their careers for BEING famous - which of course enabled them to become the "entrepreneurs" they are today. Now with that said I think it was immature and very distasteful of Kim to blast another public figure on social media with childish hashtags, somehow reminiscent of angry teenage obsessions.

Agreed Annie! Also, I don't think it's crazy to congratulate someone on having a baby while also wondering why they're famous ;)

I understand why Kim might be annoyed, but I think Kanye's anger might rubbing off on her.
