Khloe Kardashian responded to the controversy surrounding her team’s efforts to get an unedited bikini photo of her taken down. She said that she has been subjected to criticism about her appearance all her life.

Khloé Alexandra Kardashian is an American media personality, socialite, and model. Since 2007, she has starred with her family in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The Good American founder, who is known for heavily editing her photos, took to Instagram to share a series of videos of her fit body to silence critics.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said that she faced “constant” pressure to look her best as she was termed the “fat sister”. 

“Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear. ‘Khloe is the fat sister.’ ‘Khloe is the ugly sister.’ ‘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.’ Should I go on?” she wrote.

Khloe said that people underestimate the impact such criticism has on her because of her privilege. She urged everyone to acknowledge that she is only ‘human’.

“Oh but who cares how she feels because she grew up in a life of privilege. She’s also on a reality show so she signed up for all of this. I’m of course not asking for sympathy but I am asking to be acknowledged for being human. I am not perfect but I promise you that I try everyday to live my life as honestly as possible and with empathy and kindness. It doesn’t mean that I have not made mistakes. But I’m not going to lie. It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me,” she wrote.

“For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and imperfection has been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them everyday by the world. And when I take that criticism to use as motivation to get myself in the best shape of my life and to even help others with the same struggles, I am told I couldn’t have done it through hard work and I must have paid for it all,” she added.

Khloe said being constantly torn down for her looks conditioned her to feel that she is not beautiful enough. She added that she likes to use filters, good lighting and even edits to make her photos look good, and will continue to do so ‘unapologetically’.
