Kim Kardashian angered fans over the weekend after posting several Instagram stories in which her sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner express concern about her weight, only to have her respond with over-the-top flattery. The videos were posted as the mother of two attended a charity poker tournament event with her family on Saturday night.
“Wait what was that Kendall?” you hear Kardashian ask in the first video, to which her sister responds, “No, like I’m really concerned, I don’t think you’re eating. Like you look so skinny.”
“What?! What?!” Kardashian squeals, gleefully. “Oh my god, thank you!”
In the second video, Khloe chimes in and compares her to a “walking Face Tune doll,” while Kendall holds up a tiny purse and says, “My purse is as tiny as you.”
“Oh my god, the compliments!” Kardashian yells, clearly beyond pleased with the attention.
Later, Khloe and a friend joke about Kardashian subsiding on only celery, lettuce, and different types of oxygen. “Okay, tell be more, guys,” she responds. “You guys, I’m not that skinny! I’m down to 119 pounds.”
In a final video, Kardashian braggily admits that she does actually weigh less without her hair extensions.
Why she felt the need to post these videos is unclear, however aside from how obnoxious it was, Kardashian is now being called out for not exactly sending a message of body positivity to fans — particularly her young, female fans.
Predictably, Kardashian will likely learn nothing from the incident and she and her family will continue to amass obscene amounts of wealth as usual. Oh well, we tried, everyone.
