Here's what happened: The reality star is the new face of the migraine medication Nurtec ODT, and the company shared a commercial with her in it. Said commercial led one troll to reply, “Does research indicate that the more plastic surgery someone has the more likely they are to suffer from migraines? What kind of pharmaceutical company chooses someone who has had so much plastic surgery they look like an alien, as their spokesperson?”
The Good American founder replied, “Sorry you feel that way. You have every right to block/mute me. I am trying to help many out there who suffer in silence. I R [sic] completely entitled to your opinions. Just as I am mine. I don’t think you should refer to yourself as a feminist if you are attacking a woman unprovoked.”
Earlier this year there was some controversy after an unedited bikini photo of Khloé Kardashian without her permission. Her team went to great lengths to scrub the pic from the internet, which caused her to receive backlash. Some people argued it was an opportunity for Kardashian to embrace body positivity instead of perfection. She saw things a bit differently.
“Hey guys, this is me and my body un-retouched and unfiltered,” she wrote on Instagram and Twitter in response to the controversy. “The photo that was posted this week was 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 [too] 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—no matter who you are.”
Kardashian continued, “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. ‘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.’”
