Kim Kardashian Under Fire For “Skinny” and “Anorexic” Comments

This weekend, Kim Kardashian posted videos of her sisters Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian calling her “really skinny” and “anorexic”. In the videos, Kim gushes over her sisters’ well-intentioned comments, but her fans weren’t so happy.

Kim Kardashian, 37, shared the videos on her Instagram story from a City Hope charity poker event on Sunday evening. Kendall joked with Kim, saying she was “like really concerned” about her weight.

“I don’t think you’re eating,” Jenner said. “Like you look so skinny.”

Kim was eating up her sisters comments.

“I’ve never seen a human being look as good. You are a walking Face Tune [the photo editing app] doll,” Khloe said.

“Oh my god the compliments!,” Kim exclaimed in response.

Later in the night, Khloe continued to call Kim really thin. Kim replied by saying, “You guys, I’m not that skinny!”

“Kimberly I can literally see through you!,” Khloe said.

“I’m down to 119 lbs.,” Kim said. “I will say when I take out my hair extensions I am less.”

Khloe responded by saying, “Your hair extensions, your a–, your tits, everything, they’re heavy, cause she’s f—— voluptuous. But she’s anorexic here [gestures to waist], her arms are like pin thin, they’re like my pinky.”

The mother of three was obviously loving her sisters complimenting her thin physique, but she didn’t take into account the fact that the majority of her followers are young women.

Best Coast weighed in on Kim’s comments, saying that the “skinny” chatter made her want to throw her phone into outer space. Many people on Twitter noted that the comments were especially triggering for women (and men) who actually suffer from eating disorders like Anorexia.

Kim has actually been criticized in the past for promoting unhealthy body images through her promotion of appetite suppressants like Flat Tummy Tea.
