'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, Kim Kardashian generated a wave of negative comments after her recent Instagram stories appearance.
“You are so skinny”
The Kardashian family doesn’t need to get used to hearing offensive comments from people on social media. If you a reality star, popular worldwide, you must be ready for this.
But after her recent Instagram stories appearance together with her sisters, Kim’s fans literally body-shamed the star for her “too skinny look.”
Well, it’s not exactly her skinny body that caused such a negative reaction from people, but Kim’s response to her sister Kendall’s comment.
Kendall told Kim:
I'm really concerned. I don't think you're eating. Like you look so skinny.
And Kim responded:
Oh my God, thank you!
No need to say that in our time, when a lot of young women suffer from eating disorders, like anorexia and bulimia, Kim’s happy reaction on her sister’s comment was regarded as totally inappropriate.
Twitter users attacked the reality star with angry comments.
Kim Kardashian being obsessed with her sisters telling her she’s so skinny she looks anorexic on her Instagram story makes me want to throw my phone into outer space— Best Coast (@BestCoast) July 29, 2018
I’m so angry. One of the most influential woman in the world has first advertised an appetite suppressant, now this. Fun fact: when I had conversations with friends concerned that I wasn’t eating and that I’d lost weight, my first response was certainly not “OMG THANK U!!!!!”— elspeth (@ElspethOakley) July 29, 2018
Saw a video where Kendall Jenner tells Kim Kardashian that she looks like she never eats and that she’s concerned about how skinny she is. Kim K says “thank you” in the most delighted voice.— Wendy R (@WendyRMonkey) July 30, 2018
Like, do they ever get tired of being so problematic?
I found kim kardashians insta stories where she’s making her family repeat how skinny she is very uncomfortable. Never felt fatter watching them.— steph ledigo (@stephledigo) July 30, 2018

And we wonder why eating disorders are a thing.

According to the National Eating Disorders Association, anorexia is the third most common illness among young people in the 21st century. Sound terrible, doesn’t it?
So, how to prevent a tragedy until it’s too late? Here is some important information to know:
- Acceptance. First of all, in order to defeat a disease, you need to confess to yourself that you have a problem.
- Reach out for support. You can’t fight on your own. Ask your family or close friends for their support and assistance.
- Get treatment. There is a variety of different treatment options available for those struggling with eating disorders. Choose the one that works best for you.
- Make a long-term recovery plan. Anorexia or bulimia do not come from anywhere and do not disappear in a moment. Get ready that a treatment course may take from a couple of months to a couple of years.
- Don’t be afraid. Remember you are not alone who faces eating disorders. Find your supporting team and all together you’ll definitely defeat the disease.
