Kim Kardashian Claps Back at "Bad Skin" Criticism: It's Psoriasis, A-Holes!

by at .  Updated at .

Kim Kardashian doesn't have the luxury of keeping many secrets from the world.

We're sure she has some vital skeletons locked away in the vault of her mind, but for the most part, we know everything there is to know about Kim.

From sex tapes to reality shows to social media confessions, she's on display like no other celebrity before her.

The upside is that Kim enjoys an unprecedented level of connection with her fans.

The downside is that she lives her life in a constant state of full exposure and vulnerability.

While she made the choice to put herself out there in this way -- and we're sure she very rarely regrets it -- there are certainly aspects of Kim's life that we're sure she'd prefer to keep to herself.

(And no, we're not just talking about her political disagreements with Kanye.)

Take Kim's health for example.

Taking a Call

As you may know, Kim suffers from psoriasis, an autoimmune disease that affects more than 7.5 million Americans.

One of the most common symptoms of psoriasis is red, dry, or scaly skin.

Obviously, this can make life complicated for a fashion maven who's photographed pretty much every time she leaves the house.

Fortunately, Kim's not one to sit idly by and allow herself to be shames for her condition.

Kim Kardashian: A Good Photo

When the limey rubes at The Daily Mail attempted to do exactly that, Kim clapped back in a manner that was both subtle and potent.

"Make-up mogul Kim Kardashian suffers bad skin day ahead of Master Class beauty seminar," the sneering trolls tweeted alongside a mildly unflattering photo of Kim.

The mother of three retweeted the post along with the following explanation:

"It's psoriasis all over my face."

Confessional Time

This occasion didn't call for an epic smackdown.

In order to gain the support of everyone who saw the tweet, Kim needed only to point out that the greasy toads across the pond were belittling her due to an untreatable medical condition.

Kim has spoken candidly about her condition in the past, and to remind her millions of followers about it this week required the kind of bravery that the dripping pustules at The Daily Mail could never fathom.

Kim Kardashian is Looking Great

"I'm always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I'm learning to just accept it as part of who I am," Kim said in a 2016 interview.

Again, Kim lives her life in the spotlight, and it's nigh-impossible for her to hide from the public, but she deserves applause for speaking so candidly about her condition.

Besides, we're not about to allow appearance-based bullying from the country that produced Piers Morgan.
