Kylie Jenner’s body critics don’t seem to be bothering the youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner family. In fact, the reality star recently reacted to the criticism by beating them to the punch.
Jenner, who has spent the majority of her life in the spotlight, shared a photo on Instagram on Saturday, May 16, that showed the 17-year-old in a black high-cut swimsuit and thigh-high boots. She captioned the photo by saying, “Behind the scenes,” and later adding, “Yes I gained weight. There, I said it so u don’t have to (sic).”
Jenner eventually deleted the comment addressing her critics, but the photo, which has garnered over 1.2 million likes, has given her fans an opportunity to commend her.
“Kylie got some Curves and I Love It!! And for the absent minded people out there, there is a difference between Curves & Fat! Because this girl is absolutely NOT fat at all! I’ll say it again, what’s wrong with people who say things like that?! That’s the problem with this world! SMH!” Instagram user serialfashionkilla wrote.
Another user ameliaskyy wrote, “I love kylie and these curves it makes her like the rest of the worlds teen girls.”
Jenner’s appearance has been a topic of much debate lately after she revealed she had gotten lip injections. Speculation had been circulating around the possibility of Kylie having cosmetic work done, but the rumors had been squashed time and time again by her sisters, who claimed she simply lined her lips well.
“I’m just not ready to talk to reporters about my lips yet because everyone always picks us apart. I want to admit to the lips, but people are so quick to judge me on everything, so I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie,” she revealed on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, according to the Huffington Post.
Kylie and her older sister Kendall Jenner were also recently booed at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards while introducing their brother-in-law Kanye West. Kylie described West as a “great artist, a friend, an inspiration, a brother, and now a doctor.” The girls didn’t seem to mind the booing as they continued their introduction without a glitch, unlike last year.
