LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kim Kardashian faced criticism from her followers online for pulling the same duck face pose in her selfies for years. The reality star was called out by her fans for her signature kissy-face pose, with some even sharing theories as to why she constantly resorts to puckering her lips.


The Hulu personality, 42, shared a couple of new snaps on Instagram wearing a sizzling black bikini. The photos were mostly identical, with Kim pulling the same pouty face from different angles. Fans decided it was time for an intervention, with many calling her out for her go-to selfie pose. Meanwhile, some said they believe she makes the face because she's "self-conscious."

'Are you able to smile normally?'

The makeup mogul posted three photos of herself wearing nothing but a black two-piece on Tuesday, March 14. She captioned the post, "Hey." Fans, however, did not waste time in calling out the reality star for using the same "annoying" pose in her selfies. A fan wrote, "Are we really still doing this in 2023??"



Whilst, another added, "Do we do anything besides duck lips and peace signs anymore?" Someone else wondered, "In every single photo now she does the troutpout. Why?" A comment read, "Are you able to smile normally? The duck pout is sooooooooooooo lame." Another chimed in writing, "Why does she always make this face it’s annoying af."


'Same duck face for years!'

The SKIMS founder was confronted for the kissy face just a couple of days earlier in a post she captioned, "Have the best day!" The mother-of-four's followers were confused once again as to why she wouldn't smile like a normal person. Therefore, several of them criticized her for the same and this has since continued.



"Just curious, why do you always make this face?" one asked, while another said, "I’m so very bored with the pose." Someone else remarked, "Kim I’m so tired of seeing the pucker lips! You have the most beautiful teeth and smile I wish you would show them more hey start a new trend." Another added, "Same duck face for years!"

'Self-conscious about her smile'

It's worth noting that some fans had a theory about the reason Kardashian never grins from ear to ear. "She must be self-conscious about her smile which is why she goes to the kissy face or the serious face," one wrote, with many others agreeing. That said, despite the wave of criticism for her selfies, the TV personality drew praise after she posted an unedited, make-up-free selfie on March 6. Kim appeared to be visiting the dentist and had her hair pulled back in a tight braid as she smiled faintly for the camera.



"How pretty You look without Filters or makeup. Goals," one fan gushed. "Yes an unfiltered selfie!!!" another exclaimed. "Nice to see Kim’s skin without makeup or a filter," someone else wrote. "See!!! Shut up all those haters she's unfiltered unedited and still the most beautiful of all time," another added.


'A little bit of Botox'

Kardashian opened up about previous cosmetic procedures she'd had done in a July 2022 interview. “A little bit of Botox. But I’ve chilled, actually,” she told Allure at the time. The reality star added, “I’ve never had eyelash extensions. I’ve never done anything. I have a drop of mascara on today. I’ve never filled my cheeks. I’ve never filled my lips.”



Kardashian continued, “I care. I really genuinely care about looking good,” she insisted, adding, “I probably care more than 90% of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school and I’m all of the above. I do my beauty treatments usually late at night. After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments.”
