Earlier this week, an unedited picture of Khloé Kardashian made its approach to social media. In the image, that was reportedly shared with out permission, Khloé was seen in a bikini posing close to the pool. Her PR crew quickly sprung into motion to get the unauthorised image faraway from the web, regardless of many individuals praising the untouched image.
“The colour 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 advertising officer of Kim Kardashian’s KKW Brands, instructed Page Six in a press release.
“Khloe looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down,” the assertion additional stated.
Now, the socialite and entrepreneur has taken to Instagram to deal with the explanation for doing so, consequently shedding gentle on the fixed scrutiny she has to stay underneath. She put out a collection of unedited photos of herself, bookending them with considerate messages asking individuals to be kinder.
“Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point – and then shares it to the world – you should have every right to ask for it not to be shared – regardless of who you are,” she wrote.
“In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear,” she added.
Enlisting the distasteful remarks directed at her, she continued, “‘Khloé is the fat sister.’ ‘Khloé is the ugly sister.’ ‘Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different.’ ‘The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery.’..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 will start to believe it…This is how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me.”
She concluded her messages on a optimistic word: “I have realised that we cannot continue to live trying to fit into the perfect mould of what others have set for us. Just do you and made your heart is happy.”
