Khloe Kardashian posted a lengthy essay after an ongoing controversy where her and her family wanted a photo of her in a bikini, that was unretouched, removed from the Internet.
The photo in question has been circulating for days, and finally resulted in Khloe taking a stand and showing off her body on an Instagram live.
Later, Khloe posted an essay that explained her side of things.
“This is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. This photo that was posted this week is beautiful,” Khloe wrote. “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.”
