This week, Khloe Kardashian has been desperate to purge a photo of herself from the internet.
Reports have said that she did not handle the photo’s accidental posting well.
Now, Khloe has confirmed as much with a lengthy post.
Even as she acknowledges her body dysphoria, she is adamant that she has ever right to filter herself beyond recognition.
Khloe’s team has been sending copyright takedown notices left and right over a pic of her.
It was posted to Instagram … but by an assistant, and by accident.
The image was unedited, and while it showed Khloe’s incredible figure, it was too unedited and natural for her tastes.
The takedown demands have only drawn more, not less, attention to the image.
As such, Khloe took to Instagram to share looks at herself to “prove” that yes, her body really looks this good without editing.
She also posted a lengthy, heartfelt message that many fans read as a cry for help.
“Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered,” Khloe began her lengthy message.
She correctly observed: “The photo that was posted this week is beautiful.”
If you sense a but coming on, you’re absolutely right.
“But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life,” Khloe began to explain.
“When someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is,” she shared.
Khloe continued by noting that this is “after working so hard to get it to this point.”
“And then shares it to the world,” Khloe’s description went on.
“You should have every right to ask for it to not be shared,” she expressed.
Khloe added that this is true “regardless of who you are.”
“In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule, and judgment my entire life,” Khloe wrote.
She detailed that this was pressure “to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look.”
Khloe admitted that this “has been too much to bear.”
“‘Khloe is the fat sister.’ ‘Khloe is the ugly sister,'” Khloe cited as cruel examples.
She continued: “‘Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different.'”
“‘The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery,'” Khloe quoted. “Should I go on?”
“Oh but who cares how she feels because she grew up in a life of privilege,” Khloe mocked.
“She’s also on a reality show,” she went on, “so she signed up for all of this.”
Speaking as herself, Khloe emphasized: “I’m of course not asking for sympathy.”
“But I am asking to be acknowledged for being human,” Khloe stressed.
“I am not perfect,” she acknowledged.
“But,” Khloe wrote, “I promise you that I try [every day] to live my life as honestly as possible.”
“And,” Khloe continued, “with empathy and kindness”
“It doesn’t mean that I have not made mistakes,” she admitted.
“But I’m not going to lie,” Khloe continued.
Khloe confessed: “It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me.”
