Ouch! Kim Kardashian didn’t mince words regarding a baby gift she received from Katie Couric.

Kim Tweeted a photo of the gift for daughter North (a polka-dotted sleeper set from Barney’s New York) along with the enclosed card which read, “Dear Kim and Kanye, Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl! And may I humbly suggest you continue the K tradition. Fondly, Katie Couric.”

The new mom, 32, captioned the photo using hashtags “I Hate Fake Media Friends” and “May I Humbly Suggest You Not Send Gifts Then Talk S**t.”

The Twitter smackdown may have been prompted by a comment Katie made earlier in the week.

When asked about the pop culture phenomenon that is the Kardashian/Jenner family, the former “Today” anchor told In Touch Weekly, “I don’t understand — why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”

Katie later apologized for the comment, telling E! News, “I was responding to a reporter’s question, and explaining how I’m intrigued by the public’s fascination with her family.

“I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye,” she added.
