We all remember when Kim Kardashian revealed the unhealthy weight she had to lose to fit in Marilyn Monroe’s iconic 1962 dress in time for the Met Gala. Only to be in it for several minutes before taking it right off!
The amount of weight she lost in such a short period was so concerning it even caught the attention of Elaina Efird, a registered dietician, who expressed her shock and concern over the controversial weight loss journey Kim documented in The Kardashians episode.
But fans were even more shocked, concerned, and maybe a little disgusted with a recent episode that aired in September, where Kim is talking to Khloe about their family’s concerns over Khloe’s recent weight loss.
In the episode, Kim tells Khloe about a text she received from their sisters, Kendall and Kylie, expressing to her that they were a little worried about how skinny Khloe has recently gotten.
The most shocking part about this scene is Khloe’s reaction, who appears delighted about the news.
Many fans were confused by her reaction to her family’s concern over her weight loss as she responded to Kim with a massive smile on her face, “And Kendall said it? The model!?”
Many fans even expressed feeling sad that Khloe cares so much about her weight to the point where she takes her family’s concern as a compliment!
Others have sympathized with her, explaining that Khloe has dealt with body image issues since she was young, always considered the “Fat Kardashian” since her family’s rise to fame in 2007.
The obsession with her weight may be caused by the pressure to keep a title like that away from her image.
However, many people were less forgiving. They expressed concern over the Kardashians teaching their already easily-impressionable audience how to feel even more insecure over their bodies, as Khloe’s reaction implied a sense of positivity associated with being skinny instead of fat.
Regardless, the episode's obsession with weight and taking adjectives like “skinny” as a compliment pushes us further back into regressive beauty standards that do nothing but cause harm, especially to young girls.
