(LOS ANGELES) — Khloe Kardashian has nothing to hide. After receiving criticism and negative remarks over an unauthorized photo that surfaced over the weekend, she hit back at the haters.
On Wednesday, the 36-year-old Good American founder showed off her ripped body Instagram post with the caption, “PS Yes I did a live to show you all this isn’t photoshopped,” along with the tongue sticking out emoji.
The post included two videos of Khloe showing her body as well as a lengthy message addressing body image issues and why she wanted the leaked photo removed from the internet.
“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,” she wrote.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made mention of the various criticism she’s faced, including claims she relied on surgery to achieve her slim look and that the late Robert Kardashian is not her real father.
“In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear,” she continued.
Khloe added that she’s speaking out about this not for “sympathy” but to simply be “acknowledged for being human.”
“I have realized that we cannot continue to live life trying to fit into the perfect mold of what others have set for us,” she concluded. “Just do you and make sure your heart is happy.”
