On Monday night, Kim Kardashian-West accepted the inaugural Break the Internet Award at the 2016 Webby’s for her “unparalleled success online” and for inventing “a new type of celebrity” — and her acceptance speech is definitive proof of why she deserved to win it.

For those who are unfamiliar, the Webby’s are essentially the Oscars of the internet, and award winners are only allowed five words in their acceptance speeches. Unsurprisingly, Kim chose to make a statement with hers — and basically just clapped back at anyone who has ever slut-shamed her for taking and posting sexy photos online.
“Nude selfies till I die,” Kim proclaimed after accepting the award — and women around the web responded with a collective, “Hell yeah.”
