Kim Kardashian has been bombarded with abuse after flaunting her post-baby body online.

The 32-year-old reality TV star has been branded a ''sl*t'' and deemed a bad example for her three-month-old daughter North - whom she has with boyfriend Kanye West- after she shared a revealing snapshot of her impressive butt on her Instagram account yesterday (17.10.13).

In response to the photograph, Avamoriarty wrote: ''One word: sl*t.''

While Yaraalzubi said: ''What the hell Kim? You are an actual mother. Instead of posting pictures of your precious baby, you post pictures of your f***ing ass and body. You should be ashamed of yourself posting this.''

User Radlaur added: ''You're a mother, not a prostitute.''

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star has been trying to shift her pregnancy pounds with the combination of a gruelling exercise regime and the Atkins diet, but while some of her fans were quick to criticise the 'selfie' - which saw her in a one-piece white swimsuit - her boyfriend Kanye was delighted by what he saw.

He wrote on Twitter: ''HEADING HOME NOW''.

Kim has previously expressed her desire to do a nude photo shoot for iconic men's magazine Playboy once she's returned to her pre-baby weight.

She said before giving birth to North in June: ''As soon as I pop this thing out, I want to do Playboy or some nude shoot.''

Kim has posed nude for Hugh Hefner's magazine before in December 2007.
