Kim Kardashian is known for flaunting her famous behind but she was not happy when bikini photos from a Mexican getaway surfaced online.
In a teaser for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the reality star opens up about a series of paparazzi shots of herself and sister Kourtney Kardashian on vacation that went viral, showing the mother-of-two at an unflattering angle.
“Oh my god. Like, I don’t get it. I literally don’t look like this!” the 36-year-old said to friends as she lounged by the pool. “I need to untag myself in everything. I’m literally going to go inside and just start untagging.”
Kim then proceeds to respond to her critics. “I’m already having this anxiety attack over security and I’m already on high alert. Just the scrutiny that we get all the time — we try to avoid that. So I’m doing all the steps to try to be as private and discreet as possible, and then you take pictures,” Kim confessed. “And if they’re not perfect, people just body shame and criticize you. For people just to think that’s okay is so frustrating.”
This isn’t the first time Kim has opened up about the bikini shots, telling The View earlier this year she believed they were digitally manipulated. “I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photoshopping them and sharpening them, they were the worst photos,” she told the show’s panel back in June.
However, she did note that the snaps were taken at a bad time. “I definitely was not in my best shape, I hadn’t worked out in about 12 weeks and had two surgeries on my uterus. We documented that on the show.” She added, “I was already not feeling like myself. And then when people were sharpening them and making them look way worse, and then those were going around. I was like, ‘Okay. I’m gonna get it together.'”
Kim has since shown off her most famous asset — in approved Instagram photos and editorials.
