The Tweet spat began with Kim writing, "Big pimpin w @SerenaJWilliams @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!"
Demi responded asking Kim, "Are you using the word "pimpin" as in pimping?"
The reality starlet Tweeted back, "Doesn't everyone? LOL… Nothing wrong with dancing to Big Pimpin' by Jay Z in the club! Having a girls night out, gotta love that song!"
However, Demi was hardly laughing out loud at Kim's use of the word.
"No disrespect I love a girls night out but a pimp and pimping is nothing more than a slave owner!" Demi Tweeted, adding in another post, "if we want to end slavery we need to stop glorifying the "pimp" culture"
Demi apparently sensed she might have caused a spat by calling out Kim and then wrote, "Clearly I stirred up a s**t storm, but 2 create change U have 2 be willing 2 take a risk and be willing 2 provoke thought & conversation."
Kim appeared to agree with Twitter's lingo cop, writing back to Demi, "Good point!I agree! It was just a song not literal"
Demi ended the word skirmish on a positive note, writing, "Just so ya'll are clear I like @KimKardashian I was just making a point about how we have used a word and desensitized the real meaning."
