Khloé Kardashian caused quite a controversy on the Internet earlier this week with the help of an army of lawyers and representatives after an unfiltered bikini photo surfaced online.
The photo features Kim Kardashian‘s sister in a sexy leopard print bikini enjoying an Easter getaway in Palm Springs with her family.
Her team took drastic actions to remove the steamy photo from social media websites and other places.
Wednesday evening, the reality TV star decided to address the matter and break the Internet while at it.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to social media, where she posted several videos that were filmed during an Instagram live.
In one video, 36-year-old Khloé Kardashian removes her clothes and hides her chest with her hands.
In another, she slowly lifts her sweatshirt to show her natural body that she claimed was “unretouched and unfiltered.”
She wrote a profound and moving essay where she confirmed that the videos she posted show her “unretouched and unfiltered” figure.
She also opened up more about the photo controversy that made headlines earlier this week by saying that it was leaked without her consent.
She also used her post to tackle her body image.
She stated: “This is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. The photo that was posted this week was beautiful.”
Khloé Kardashian went on to reveal why she wanted the picture erased: “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 … you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared – regardless of who you are.”
Khloé also said: “I am not perfect, but I promise you that I try every day to live my life as honestly as possible with empathy and kindness. It doesn’t mean I have not made mistakes… it’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me.”
She finally opened up about her obsession with filters by saying: “You never get used to being judged and pulled apart, and I love a good filter, good lighting, and an edit here and there.”
She concluded by: “My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It’s not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable or not anymore…for those else who feel the constant pressure of not ever feeling perfect enough, I want you to know I see you, and I understand.”
All her sisters jumped into the comment section to show her love. Her mother, Kris Jenner, stepped in to write this mini-essay: “Khloé, you are the kindest, most loving, most supportive, most beautiful heart I have ever known, and I adore you and am so proud of you…. you are an inspiration to all of us, and I appreciate and love you each and every single day. Thank you for teaching the rest of us to be kind and to not judge…. you are one of a kind…. what a blessing you are. You are a gift. ❤️🙏”
Khloé was able to get a lot of headlines after this controversy.
