Khloe Kardashian shares candid body image struggles amid photo controversy

·2-min read

Khloe Kardashian has candidly shared her body image battle amid her ongoing Instagram photo controversy.

Earlier this week, an unedited photo of the 36-year-old surfaced on social media, featuring a filter-free Khloe posing by a poolside while wearing a bikini.

However, her team soon reached out to the Instagram users who had shared the snap, asking them to remove the picture immediately, claiming that the photo infringed her copyright.

On Wednesday, Khloe took to social media to share her ongoing struggle to accept her body, alongside allegedly unedited photos and videos of herself as she described the "unbearable" scrutiny she faces over her appearance.

"The photo that was posted this week was 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 not to be shared - no matter who you are," she began.

She then listed the vicious comments she's been forced to endure throughout her life and confessed she has been "conditioned" to believe she wasn't attractive.

"You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is, but I will say if you hear anything enough then you will start to believe it," Khloe explained. "This is how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me."

She refused to stop using filters and editing her photos and videos, as she stated she wanted 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 anymore," the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star concluded.
