Khloe Kardashian speaks out on unedited photo of herself her team allegedly worked to get taken off the internet
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star on Wednesday used her verified Instagram account to post videos and a photo of herself with a statement beginning with “Hey guys, it’s me and my body unretouched and unfiltered “
“The photo that was posted this week was gorgeous,” the statement read. “But as someone who’s struggled with body image all of their life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering under poor lighting or not capturing your body as it is after working hard to get to this point – then sharing with the world – you should have the right to ask that it not be shared – no matter who you are “
Kardashian wrote that “the constant pressure, ridicule and judgment of my entire life to be perfect and to meet other people’s standards of how I should look has been too much to take.”
Earlier this week, it was reported that his team were trying to get the occasional photo, which showed Kardashaian in a bikini by the pool, removed due to copyright infringement.
“The color-edited photo was taken of Khloé at a private family reunion and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, KKW Brands’ marketing director, told Page Six in a statement
The reality TV star and entrepreneur who is part of the notorious Kardashian-Jenner clan on Wednesday spoke in her released statement about being labeled “the fat sister” and “the ugly sister” on social media.
“You never really get used to being judged and set aside and being told how unattractive this one is, but I’ll say if you hear something enough you’ll start to believe it,” she says “This is how I’ve been conditioned to feel, that I’m not beautiful enough just being me”
She said she would continue to use filters and edit photos “without excuse”, just as she puts on makeup and gets manicured to “present myself to the world as I want to be seen.”
“My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice,” Kardashian wrote. “It’s no longer for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable”
