Khloé Kardashian Told A Commenter Who Called Her "Insecure" To "Look In The Mirror" And Told Them She Was "Sorry They're Hurting"
"Baby girl, you have to look in the mirror. I'm sorry that you're hurting."
Khloé Kardashian has responded to a commenter who branded her "insecure" on Instagram weeks after she attracted controversy over that leaked photo.
In case you somehow missed the news, two weeks ago Khloé became the subject of online pandemonium when an unedited photo of her in a bikini was posted to social media — and then began circulating — without her consent.
Within hours of the image finding its way online, the Kardashians' team began making legal threats to prevent it from spreading further.
"The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands, told Page Six. "Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down."
Days later, Khloé shared an Instagram post with a series of photos showing her in various states of undress to prove how her body looks "without photoshop."
"It's almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me," she wrote in the caption. "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. This is an example of how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me."
The leaked photo was just the latest in a long line of examples of Khloé's appearance being dissected and analyzed online. Last year, a photo pointing out the differences between a heavily filtered Instagram selfie and a still from Keeping Up With the Kardashians went viral.
Months later, certain portions of the media as well as Twitter users joked about her "changing appearance" and said Khloé had become "unrecognizable" over recent years.
