Rob Kardashian is back on social media, folks!

And he appears to be making a statement.

Rob Kardashian Shirtless Photo

The reality star posted for the first time in months on Thursday, sharing a photo of himself without a shirt on, chowing down on a pulled pork sandwich.

It’s not a new photo, however.

"#tbt Me just chill-zoning in Malibu eating a pulled pork sandwich," Rob penned as a caption to the delicious-looking image.

Kardashian has remained out of the spotlight for about 18 months now, ever since getting into such a fight with Kim Kardashian.

In May 2014, he peaced out of Europe prior to her wedding to Kanye West; Rob has rarely if ever been spotted in public since.

He’s made multiple references to being fat in the past, with relatives confirming that the reality star feels insecure about his weight.

Hence the theory that he’s making a small statement here by giving followers a look at himself eating while shirtless.

Perhaps he’s over that insecurity now?

We are absolutely reading into this way too much, as there is little hard evidence that much has changed on this particular front.

Rob has been making a slow, steady return to social media in past months, though, wishing sister Khloe a happy birthday on June 27.

He also made headlines by saying some very sweet things about niece Penelope Disick, who celebrated a birthday in mid-July.

Earlier this week, excerpts from a Khloe Kardashian interview with Complex went viral in which she said she loved living with him.

"I wouldn’t have it any other way," she said.

"I love having him with me. He lives with me now. I have a big ass house and I wanted it so he could feel like, comfortable."

"He’s going through a hard time now."

Here’s hoping that perhaps, just maybe, this latest public photo is a sign that those hard times are slowly fading in the rear view mirror.
