(USA TODAY) -- Forget 140 characters: Kim Kardashian went on a nearly 250-word Twitter rant yesterday about paparazzi cornering her for photos - and threatening her if she doesn't smile and comply.
A couple hours later, she posted a pair of Blue Steel selfies that would make Derek Zoolander proud.
The exclamation point-dotted diatribe is best read raw:
"I wouldn't let the paps get a pic of me today & they threatened my life & said if I continue to block shots then they will make my world dangerous to live in! How dare they threaten my life & my unborn child! This has gotten way out of control!
Yesterday 4 cars boxed me in. One in front, behind, & one on each side just to have me drive at their speed so they can snap through the window. Its really so scary what they are legally allowed to get away with!
For years I've always been so gracious. Every shot they take now just isn't flattering & crazy stories get made up, so why would I willingly just let them stalk me & smile for them? Let me enjoy this last month of pregnancy please without threats & being scared to leave my home due to what dangerous thing they just threatened to do to me.
What will it take for there to be laws put in place to prevent this behavior?
I get I live a public life. I live my life on a reality show for the world to see. I love my life, but when the cameras stop, that doesn't mean I don't want a break too. I'm 32 yrs old now, about to be a mom. I'm not 25 clubbing around LA anymore. There's no excuse for threats & stalking!"
