Kylie Jenner’s body critics have gotten a direct response from the model. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to Instagram to put the rumors to rest before they started.
As perfectionistic as the world’s standards can be about celebrities and their bodies, it seems 17-year-old Kylie took a proactive and very public approach to her own. Women in the industry can be instantly judged for how they look from week to week, sadly.
The trend of body shaming has had its detractors, as well. Meghan Trainor gained much of her fame with the idea that she’s not the ideal the industry aims for, and after a fashion firm allegedly slimmed her pencil skirt photos, the battle continues.
Even Rob Kardashian was given his moment in the spotlight for having put on a few pounds after being seen in public that way. It’s not easy being a Kardashian or a Jenner these days.
Three days ago, before Kylie Jenner’s body critics could have their say, the model posted a picture of herself in a swimsuit. The Instagram post included the caption, “Behind the scenes,” and the comment, “Yes I gained weight. There, I said it so [you] don’t have to.”
Her critic-slamming comment has since been deleted.
Kylie has certainly been through a lot lately, from filing a trademark with her sister, Kendall, so nobody can use their names to advertise, to dealing with their father’s very public transformation into a woman. The sisters even got booed off the stage at the BBMAs. Body shaming is one thing she allegedly felt she didn’t need, so she beat the critics and owned it.

Some of Kylie’s fans are still on her side, as one of them left the following comment.
“There’s always going to be jealous women trying to drag you down. Keep doing your thing pretty lady, the rest of the world thinks you’re great.”
