    Kim Kardashian West Just Called Out Her Former Photographer For "Inappropriate And Inexcusable Behaviour"

    "We cannot allow this type of behaviour to go unnoticed and I applaud those who speak out."

    Kim Kardashian West has pledged her "full support" to the women coming forward and making harassment claims against celebrity photographer Marcus Hyde.

    Los Angeles–based model Sunnaya Nash recently posted screenshots of an apparent conversation with Hyde, who has worked with the likes of Kardashian West and Ariana Grande in the past.

    The screenshots show Hyde asking Nash for nude photos after she responded to an Instagram story he had posted looking for models to shoot with. When Nash refused to send them, Hyde informed her that the photo shoot would cost $2,000 before confirming it would be free if she sent the pictures.

    After posting the screenshots to social media, Nash was surprised when other women also began to come forward with claims of their own.

    It wasn't long before Kardashian West caught wind of the news, taking to Instagram to post a statement about what she called "inappropriate and inexcusable behaviour".

    Speaking about working with Hyde, Kardashian West said: "My own experiences have always been professional, and I am deeply shocked, saddened and disappointed to learn that other women have had very different experiences."

    Kardashian West continued: "I stand in full support of every woman's right to not be harassed, asked or pressured to do anything they are not comfortable with. We cannot allow this type of behaviour to go unnoticed and I applaud those who speak out."

    Grande also used Instagram to voice her opinion on the "shocking and really heartbreaking stories". Although she didn't reference Hyde by name, she asked models not to shoot with photographers who "make you uncomfortable or make you feel like you need to take your clothing off if you don’t want to".

    BuzzFeed News has reached out to reps of Kardashian West and Hyde for comment.
