Keeping Up With The Kardashians Producer Khloe Kardashian Reflects On A History Of Fat Shaming
Growing up in the spotlight was more difficult for Khloe than it was for the rest of the Kardashian girls, because, as Khloe reveals in a Romper article, she was always shamed for being the “fat sister” among sisters Kourtney, Kim, Kyle, and Kendall. It felt even more hurtful because Khloe never saw herself as being overweight until she had the opportunity to watch herself on television.
Taking that kind of criticism has been humiliating, but Ms. Kardashian also says the experiences have made her stronger. She says the criticism forced her to take an honest look at herself and helped her to develop a thicker skin.
“It did make me strong for sure and being able to endure that stuff but it also makes me realize how like f—ed up people are. How judgmental and how people’s words can hurt other people and what affect it does have on them,” says Khloe. “I understand why some people succumb to eating disorders or just the peer pressure, I do get that. But I’m proud of myself that I didn’t and I’m able to walk away and actually say it made me stronger.”
Khloe Kardashian Fires Back At Those Shaming Her For Being Too Skinny
For the past year, Khloe Kardashian has devoted herself to adapting to an entirely new lifestyle, one which involves altering her eating habits and adding workouts to her daily schedule. The result has been to give her a thinner and more toned physique, something Khloe was very proud of until the haters came out of the woodwork to shame her for being too skinny. Just after Ms. Kardashian stepped out dressed in a strapless, black jumpsuit, the media blasted the reality T.V. celebrity for having lost too much weight. Articles, such as one from OK! magazine, suggests that Khloe has lost so much weight that it may be a sign of a health issue or a similar cause for concern.
It was revealed in the article that the Kardashian sister has lost over 35 pounds since she readjusted her lifestyle, and while most see this as a positive achievement, others insinuate that losing the weight must be a sign of something hazardous to Khloe’s health. Ms. Kardashian herself expresses feeling relieved and happy about the weight loss.
Upon reading what has been said about her new physique, Ms. Kardashian has responded via Twitter.
It seems understandable that Khloe would be offended by the criticism, especially after she has devoted so much time and effort to turning her life around. Ms. Kardashian is so proud of her achievements that she’s shared her journey with the public by publishing her memoirs in a new book, Strong Looks Better Naked. After working so hard and sharing what most would consider a private and daunting struggle, Khloe isn’t about to let the media steal her thunder.
Even sister Kim Kardashian is envious of Khloe’s new body image.
“I saw her naked two days ago changing. And I was, ‘Oh, my God. You are my body icon.’ She’s never been more on fire.”
