Kim Kardashian Bashes Katie Couric on Twitter

katie couric seriously ticked kk off

Kim Kardashian took aim at talk show host Katie Couric on social media Friday afternoon with a decidedly pointed message.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' reality celeb posted an Instagram photo of a baby gift that came from Barneys New York along with a note that offered congratulations to the new parents and was signed "Fondly, Katie Couric."

She captioned the image with a couple of long-winded hashtags:

"#IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkSh*t"

hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

It turns out that Kim wasn't thrilled when Couric recently said during an interview that she doesn't understand why the Kardashians are so famous.  She isn't the first to beg the question and most certainly won't be the last.

KK, who usually tries to take the high road in such matters, isn't feeling so inclined.  We find it interesting that aside from promoting 'KUWTK' on Sundays and offering a few birthday congrats, she has had very little contact with her 18 million Twitter followers since the birth of her baby in mid-June.

Perhaps motherhood and being cooped up for two months has altered the mindset of the most marketable of the Kardashian klan.

One of her outspoken sisters was surprised when she read the tweet.  Khloe Kardashian responded, "God I love this new side of u! @kimkardashian"

Katie Couric was quick to respond.  She told E! emphatically, "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 was genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."
