Khloé Kardashian's team was working this week to scrape an unedited photo of her from the internet.
Kardashian responded to the reports in an Instagram post and shared her struggles with body image.
She also posted an "unretouched and unfiltered" video showing her body.
Khloé Kardashian responded on Wednesday to reports that her team was trying to have an unedited photo of her removed from the internet.
In an Instagram post, Kardashian defended the efforts to have the photo removed and talked about her struggles with body image.
"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 so hard to get it to this point - and then shares it to the world - you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared - regardless of who you are," Kardashian said.
"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," she added.
She also shared videos showing her body, saying: "Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered."
Page Six reported Monday that copies of the photo, which show Kardashian in a bikini by a pool, were removed from places like Twitter and Reddit after Kardashian's team threatened legal action.
"The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant," a representative for Kardashian told Page Six. "Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down."
