Kim Kardashian recently took to her Twitter to defend herself against the constant rumors and attacks concerning her physique.
“I’m seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose. Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight(especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you. I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I’ve lost a lot so far & I’m proud of that! Don’t give young girls a complex!”
Why is she the constantly attacked for her body image??? America loves a witch hunt. For some reason it seems Kim Kardashian is constantly on trial. The American public has declared themselves the judge and juror of her every action.
Her rise to fame started with a sex tape made with then boyfriend Ray J. People incessantly reference this and have a major problem with it. I’m not sure if the problem stems from the making of a sex tape itself or the fact that the co-star was an R&B singer. America never seemed to be bothered with Pamela Anderson’s sex tapes.
Yes, it was a sex tape, but it was with someone she loved at the time and was involved in a serious relationship. I’ve seen girls post borderline porn Instagram and Vine videos with a buffet of fellas that are just as bad. Females are quick to send random sext, Snapchats, and naked pictures to multiple guys they don’t even know. However, a private sextape while in a relationship made public turns the entire world against you?
From this point on America has been after the demise of Kim K. Let’s see in the glorious land of opportunity…Kim Kardashian created a lucrative future for herself by turning a negative scenario into a learning experience. She really can’t win in the public’s eye. Had she done nothing but live off her father’s fortune she would have been criticized for being a Trust Fund Kid and lazy. However, instead of playing victim and climbing into a hole the 32 year old developed a keen business sense and has since amassed over a 40 million dollar empire.
While she is constantly chastised in the tabloids she must be doing something right. Kim K is the most followed female on Instagram with over 12.9 million followers. She’s ranked 19th among the top 100 most followed people on Twitter with over 19.6 million followers (far more than Drake, One Direction, CNN, Bill Gates, LeBron James, Beyonce, and fiancé Kanye West). Capitalizing on this Twitter feat she reportedly earns from $10,000-$25,000 for a single 140 character Tweet.
Her show Keeping Up With the Kardashians is in its 8th season. Kimmie Cakes earns 80K per episode. In her free time she commands up to 100K for personal appearances. She also has a Sears clothing line, perfume line, co-founder of Shoe Dazzle, and over 10 endorsements.
Aside from being a mogul, Kim K. recently added motherhood to her list. During her pregnancy she was constantly chastised for her weight gain, every mom’s biggest nightmare. Now that she’s dropped some of the baby weight and looks fab, she posted a Hot Mama photo on Instagram. What happens? She’s criticized for showing her amazing post baby bod. There is just no winning with you people!
Even with her high social media following her critics always seem more vocal than her supporters. If any other female had amassed Kimmie’s resume America would be embracing her and commending these notable accomplishments. Meanwhile despite her apparent business savvy the general public is stuck on her sex tape made over ten years ago with an ex-boyfriend. I often hear people hatefully remark “What exactly is she famous for?.”
She’s famous for ill minded people constantly stalking her to criticize her every move. She’s famous for living a life millions would love to have. She’s famous for being human and making mistakes that many of us make it’s just not broadcasted to the world. She’s famous for being vulnerable and falling in love a few times. She’s famous for haters keeping her name in their mouth.
Yes, she is laughing all the way to the bank but she’s still human. I hope Kim has skin as thick as her perfecto booty because every move she makes is never good enough for naysayers. If you’re one of Kim Kardashian’s constant critics perhaps you should look at what you’re lacking in life and figure out how to better yourself. It’s time to end the witch hunt. The new mom has clearly proven herself to be an intelligent and worthy business woman.
