American model Khloe Kardashian, who always had body image issues, has opened up on the controversy surrounding an unfiltered photo that was unauthorised to be released on the internet.
The reality TV star took to Instagram and wrote, “Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. she is not ashamed of how she looks.”
“But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point – and then shares it to the world – you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared – regardless of who you are,” she added.
The Revenge Body star continued, “For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and imperfection has been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them everyday by the world.
“And when I take that criticism to use as motivation to get myself in the best shape of my life and to even help others with the same struggles I am told I couldn’t have done it through hard work and I must have paid for it all,” Khloe shared.
