Khloe Kardashian retaliates against society and her unbrushed photo that went viral after her grandmother posted it, showcasing her body on her social media platform.
To be perfect is “unbearable,” since there is so much pressure to start with and she’s been struggling with her body image for a while. From the controversy, she releases a statement to the public using her platform.
She tells her audience, “Yes I did a live to show you all this isn’t photoshopped,” even jumping in the video (while covering her chest area) to show the reality of the body she’s worked hard on.
In her statement that she released, she mentions the comments she had received as she was growing up.
“Khloe is the fat sister.Khloe is the ugly sister. Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different,
Oh but who cares how she feels because she grew up in a life of privilege. She’s always signed up for all of this. I’m of course not asking for sympathy but I am asking to be acknowledged for being human,”
The statement goes on, explaining that it’s “almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me. For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and imperfection has been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them everyday by the world,
You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is, but I will say, if you hear anything enough then you start to believe it.”
After releasing the statement, her family and other celebrities comment on how proud they are of her, how she is a loving, supportive, and caring individual in their lives. Even celebrity Ariana Grande comments on her post with “love u & your heart,”
In the candid image that had gotten some traction, the waistline seems to be less defined and her curves are not as smooth as it appears to be on Instagram. The Kardashian PR even scrambled to take the image down to not face the consequences, but it was too late as the general public started to criticize and spread the photo around themselves.
Despite the setbacks, a lot of users were giving Khloe the support that she needed. One user wrote “Are you kidding? There is one pic of her looking actually natural and gorgeous with some flaws and she wants it gone from the Internet?!”
