Piers Morgan described Khloé Kardashian’s attempts to get an unedited photo of himself removed from the Internet as “downright tragic” in his last column for the Daily Mail.
Morgan wrote in the tabloid saying the photo – which appears to be free of airbrush techniques and shows Kardashian standing by a pool in a leopard print bikini – revealed the ‘scam’ he said the Kardashian family had been running for years.
Compared to all of her much-improved, carefully staged glamor publicity photos, her waist is significantly less defined, her curves less dramatic, and her skin not that impossibly smooth. It’s Khloé unpainted, flaws and all. And the photo was downright gruesome , ” He wrote.
Not for me, I hasten to add. I thought she looked as refreshingly normal as I’ve ever seen any of the Kardashians. No, it was utterly horrifying to HER. ‘
He continued, “With one carelessly released real photo, the scam has been blown away. After all, Khloé Kardashian isn’t some wonderfully sculpted Venus-like goddess, she’s just an ordinary woman with a regular look and body shape – yet she’s got herself “Made very rich by pretending to be something very different and very special. And the moment that ruthlessly protected mask slipped off, she went insane.”
Later in the article, Morgan described the Kardashian family as a “bunch of talentless, fame, greedy and hypocritical bastards” and wrote that the photo issue was important because young fans were often out to mimic her appearance.
The reason the Khloé fake case matters is that so many impressionable young girls and women strive to look the way they think the Kardashians look, from starving recklessly to get the same fake waistlines, to paying plastic surgeons to clean their faces. irretrievably smothering and concealing, “He wrote.” Their desperation to emulate their fraudulent idols causes massive psychological problems, including anxiety, depression and worse. “
He added, “It is downright tragic to see how terrified Khloé Kardashian was at the thought that people would know what she really looks like.”
It was first reported Monday by Page Six that Kardashian’s photo was removed from social media sites following threats of legal action from its representatives. In response, a Kardashian representative said the photo was taken at a private family gathering and accidentally posted to social media without an assistant’s permission.
Late Wednesday night, Kardashian first responded to the messages with a post on Instagram defending attempts to have the photo removed and talking about her struggles with body image.
“As someone who’s struggled with body image all her life, when someone takes a picture of you that isn’t flattering in bad light or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after you’ve worked so hard to get it to this point – and it then share with the world – you should have every right to ask that it not be shared – no matter who you are, ”she said.
