KHLOE Kardashian was slammed for denying the plastic surgery accusations and blaming her unedited photo scandal on fans’ “pressure.”
Khloe’s empire seemed to have crumbled after the Kardashian grandmother, MJ, allegedly posted the unedited photo by accident.

Khloe, 36, tried to save her image overnight as she shared a series of videos that proved she was as snatched as she showed off on social media.
“Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered,” she wrote on Instagram.
“The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. 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 then got honest about the impact online chatter has had on her: “In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgement my entire life to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear.”

The reality star then went on to quote several harsh comments she has received over the years: “Khloe’s the fat sister. Khloe’s the ugly sister. Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different. The only way she could have lost weight must have been from surgery. Should I go on?”
Khloe then explained: “Oh but who cares how she feels because she grew up in a life of privilege. She’s also on a reality show so she signed up for all of this.
“I’m of course not asking for sympathy but I am asking to be acknowledged for being human. I am not perfect but I promise you that I try everyday to live my life as honestly as possible and with empathy and kindness.
“It doesn’t mean I have not made mistakes. But I’m not going to lie, It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standard that the public have all set for me. 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.”
She concluded by saying that she “never got used” to being told “how unattractive one is” and admitted that if one “hears anything enough” they “start to believe it.”
“I love a good filter, good lighting and an edit here and there. The same way I throw on some make-up, get my nails done or wear a pair of heels to present myself to the world the way I want to be seen and it’s exactly what I will continue to do unapologetically. 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.”
The Kardashian family came to her rescue on the comments[/caption]

Following her emotional message, many of the Kardashian women rushed to the comment section to support the Good American founder.
Model Kendall Jenner wrote: “yes! you beautiful, strong, HEALTHY queen!”
Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and best friend Malika expressed how much they loved her.
Kris, who has always been very attached to her kids, wrote: “Khloe, you are the kindest, most loving, most supportive, most beautiful heart I’ve 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. What a gift.”
Sadly, not many fans were as sympathetic as her family and they further slammed her for not making this a teachable moment and admit that they look like regular people.
One person wrote on the comments: “You had an opportunity there to share to young women and every woman out there who looks up to you what body positivity is! It is amazing to post glam photos of yourself everyday but it’s also amazing to show your flaws as well. That was a beautiful rare photo and you blew the opportunity […] Would be a powerful thing to see a Kardashian be vulnerable about their insecurities.”
A second one turned the tables on her and blamed the Kardashian family themselves for setting up impossible beauty standards, adding: “You don’t need to share some videos, what do you gain from that. Learn and teach your daughter that she does not need validation from anyone.”
And a third one shared: “Don’t you think posting more unedited not so perfect photos might make other women feel better about [their] bodies instead of air brushing and blurring every imperfection.”
Other fans were simply more concerned about her lack of admittance that, despite working out and eating healthy, she also underwent some procedures to enhance her figure – which isn’t a bad thing.
One person wrote: “It is real but why can you not tell us all about the procedures that made you real.”
A second person commented: “What’s incredibly frustrating is that yes, I’m sure you worked really hard to get into shape by dieting and working out … but don’t you dare say that you have never had a procedure done to alter your body shape in any way. Your his and butt are not natural and none of your sisters are.”
And a third one said: “I am a fan of the show. But here’s my question … why not admit at least to the BBL? Yes you may have to work out to maintain it, but I think not admitting the first part is misleading to fans.”
Another simply brushed off the whole situation and brought up an iconic quote for KUWTK: “People are dying, Khloe!”
A second fan voiced similar thoughts and said: “I think you care more than we do.”
Since earlier this week, The Kardashians’ crisis management team has desperately attempted to completely remove the leaked snap of Khloe from the internet – even sending out “legal threats” to take down the bikini shot.

Fans have slammed the Good American founder’s efforts to scrape the photo from the internet as she typically boasts body positivity and acceptance.
On Monday, a source close to the famous family exclusively told The Sun that Khloe “completely lost it” and wanted it taken down “as soon as possible” when the post was shared.
“She was freaking out and within minutes the photo already began circulating everywhere,” the source said.

The informant alleged that Khloe became emotional and “embarrassed” as she “knew this was going to be a big deal.”
“But the positive comments have genuinely seemed to help,” the source added.
