Kim Kardashian was in a playful mood last night, posting a Throwback Thursday-themed photo of herself and Nicole Richie as teens.
But the reality star woke up angry.
After posting photos of herself and Blac Chyna at the gym last week, Kim was hit with accusations of Photoshop and digital alteration, with critics studying the images closely and believing they were not natural.
In defense of the celebrity, a Twitter follower wrote this morning:
“Stop #hating people! Why is it so hard to believe she works out hard for her body? Let her be skinny in peace! You look great!”
Kim re-Tweeted this message and added:
Preach! LOL thank you! It sucks when people make up surgery or photoshop lies when I am so disciplined & work so hard! Just trying to motivate others & show anyone struggling with weight they can totally achieve whatever they want if they are dedicated!
See, therein lies the problem, Kim.
You have millions of dollars. You can pay for a personal trailer and a personal chef. You do not have a 9-5 job. You have a nanny. You have luxuries that the average mother simply cannot afford.
This actually goes back to what Barack Obama said a long time ago about Kim and Kanye West. Might it not be a good thing for kids to get a glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and famous?
These folks live ridiculous lives, yet hold themselves up as normal.
You didn't achieve your body goals purely because you are dedicated, Kimmy. Overlooking all those other factors sets an unrealistic, unfair example for your fans.
