This morning I am annoyed. I was casually enjoying my Instagram stories this morning when I came across something that was extremely problematic. After watching the first few clips of a KKW Insta-story, a new clip began with Kim asking Kendall to repeat herself and Kendall saying something to the effect of “I’m worried you aren’t eating,” only to have Kim laugh it off, Kendall to say how skinny she looks and Kim to passionately thank her.
IIIIIIII have a couple of questions. No, actually, I don’t. I just have something to say. Having someone accuse you of not eating because you look skinny and then saying “thank you” is something... we have all probably done. I’m not going to pretend to be a politically correct angel because we’ve all likely done it. The PROBLEM is posting that exchange to your 114 MILLION followers, most of whom, I assume, are women. The message that this clip sent to her followers is that you need to look like you are starving yourself in order to receive a compliment on your body… that people need to express concern over your health in order for you to be beautiful. Am I being a lot? Am I off? Am I taking this too far? Regardless, I was FLOORED that someone who I actually really admire would post something like this publically.
