Kim Kardashian Slammed for Voicing Flattery to ‘Anorexic’ Comments
Kim Kardashian's taking heat for a recent Instagram story in which some of her sisters tried to compliment her by saying she looks "anorexic" and Kim responding to the labels with gleeful flattery.
While hanging out backstage at City of Hope’s charity poker tournament in Los Angeles, Kim's sisters Khloe and Kendall fixated on the star's smaller appearance.
Kendall told her: “I’m really concerned. I don’t think you’re eating,” to which Kim replied: “What? Oh, my God, thank you.”
Khloe proceeded to tell Kim she's "so skinny" and looks like she's "anorexic."
Again, Kim couldn't help but squeal with delight. Her followers, though, were singing a different tune, and slammed the star for what they perceived as reckless statements about weight and health.
“Kim Kardashian’s Instagram Story of her bragging about how skinny she is makes me wanna vom,” one user wrote, while another noted: “I’m just gonna say this. Using the words ‘anorexic’ and ‘you look like you don’t eat’ as compliments is disgusting. Even if you’re saying them as a joke. An eating disorder should never be used like that.”
“@KimKardashian what kind of bulls—t message does this send to your mainly young and female audience,” a third user concluded.
