Khloé Kardashian is facing backlash after a resurfaced video of her body-shaming people who struggle with their weight began making the rounds on the internet.
This week, a TikTok user shared the clip from Khloé's 2019 interview with podcaster Jay Shetty, and during their discussion, the Good American founder mocked the plus-size community. "I can't stand people who are, like, eating a bucket of Haagen-Dazs ice cream and they are like, 'I'm so fat,'" she said while fake crying. "And like, they won't work out, they won't change their diet, they won't drink more water, they won't whatever, but they're complaining, complaining, complaining."
Khloe Kardashian is really saying this with her whole chest as if she doesn’t have personal trainers and plastic surgeons sculpting her body for her. Throwback to when she used to be the like-able sister. 😬 pic.twitter.com/JENEQc2HrE

She added, "I'm like well, you're always going to be in this victimized state because you're literally not doing any-, you're not being self aware. You're not even looking at your own reflection, saying, 'okay, what can I do to change things about myself?' It's everybody else's fault."
Naturally, Twitter began calling Khloé out for her judgemental remarks. And while many users took issue with the comments coming from someone who has endless resources to get in shape, others pointed to her hypocrisy, accusing the reality star of achieving her body with plastic surgery and only posting Photoshopped images of herself to Instagram.
I imagine it’s so easy to workout and be the best version of yourself when you don’t face the actual truth that many Americans face. We don’t have nannies. We don’t have people that clean our house. We work, take care of our homes and repeat. #Delusional

Didn’t she threaten to sue her nan for posting an unfiltered unshopped photo of her?

Since this interview, she has changed her nose/face a minimum of two times already. When’s the last time she saw her ACTUAL real reflection and recognized it as the person she was born as?

Because it’s just that easy right? She was the fat sister once and so was/is her brother. Be considerate of those with eating disorders and mental health issues. Let fat people eat their icecream in peace.

Back in April, Khloé opened up about an unedited bikini photo of herself that was accidentally shared, and then swiftly deleted (her team even threatened legal action to those holding on to duplicates and screenshots).
"This is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered," she said in an Instagram Live video a few days following the controversy. "The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when some 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 to this point — and then shares it with the world — you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared — regardless of who you are."
