An unedited photo of Khloé Kardashian in a bikini was posted 'accidentally' and sparked the diet culture and beauty standards throughout social media.


Khloé Kardashian had a bikini photo of hers published on her social media without her permission. Even with all the Kardashian's team effort to remove and take the picture down, it had quickly spread through sites like Twitter and Reddit.

As the photo got the Internet's attention, Khloé decided to speak up, and it opened doors to a significant discussion about beauty standards and body image.


"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."

Despite Khloe's efforts to share the struggles she's faced with her own body image, Jameela Jamil said that it's because celebrities like her (and her sisters) expose themselves in an unauthentic way and triggers people to struggle with self-acceptance.


"We are all f---ed when we buy into diet culture," Jamil, 35, wrote on Instagram. "Even though I remain furious at how much this family perpetuates fat-phobia and impossible beauty standards… I TOTALLY see why they're so obsessed with presenting as whatever society's latest ideal of 'perfect' is. Because they were harassed and bullied and scrutinized to within an inch of their lives."

Jameela Jamil, who runs the platform called 'I Weight' focused on feminism, positive body image, and mental health, said the cycle of body shaming that leads people to share photoshopped and edited pictures isn't healthy neither sustainable.


The journalist Katie Couric also jumped into the discussion and shared her thoughts:

"This was raw and honest but I agree with those who say the non-stop procedures and constant filters are promoting unrealistic and harmful beauty standards."

Jamil recently shared on her Instagram account a short video contrasting her face with and without an Instagram filter. The vid's capture said that many teens and adults are now going to plastic surgeons bringing in these filtered pictures of themselves and ask to be made to look like them.

She highlights the unrealistic and harmful any of these standards are and how much they degrade a woman's right to age or look tired.

Several studies have shown how social media negatively affects women's mental health, self-acceptance, and body objectivation can lead to anxiety, dissatisfaction, and low self-esteem.
