The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey, is a perfect depiction of how the Kardashians feel like 24/7. Imagine rising to fame at a very young age in your life, the whole world beneath your feet, every moment of your life recorded and played out. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The scope of the camera always within breathing range, ready to strike at the slightest of movements. That is what Khloe Kardashian and her family goes through everyday.

You may not be a big fan of the Kardashians and not agree with the ‘awesome’ life decisions they make, but you will totally sympathize with them when it comes to being fed up with unnecessary and harsh criticism.

Recently, Khloe Kardashian has finally spoken about how the media has labelled her as ‘skinny’ and is portraying her lifestyle as ‘unhealthy’ and ‘fake’. “First I’m too fat and now I’m too skinny,” tweeted an enraged Khloe Kardashian. Even an experienced model will have trouble keeping up with the ever changing standards of beauty laid down by today’s superficial society.

The 32-year old star considers gym as therapy and clearly pointed out her 40-pound weight loss over a period of 3 years was all hard work. “It’s not about losing 30 pounds in 30 days — that’s unrealistic — so I started making lifestyle changes and started working out often,” she added.

Looking at her amazing transformation, and according to my understanding a person as healthy (and ‘curvy’ I might add) as Khloe Kardashian should never be considered ‘skinny’. Being called ‘skinny’ is a reflection of how unnecessarily conscious and judgmental we are about ourselves and those around us.

If I can do it. You can do it. It all starts with day 1! It's a lifestyle now. Snapchat: khloekardashian

All of this is a constant reminder that body shaming truly is an ongoing epidemic that may have severe psychological consequences on those inflicted with it. If left unresolved, there may be a wave of mental disorders originating from this phenomenon.
