Kim Kardashian slammed for skinny obsession after posting photo of Kris Jenner in bikini for Mother's Day
The picture did not bode well with Kim's fans who accused her of being shallow and commenting on only her mother's figure as she failed to mention any of Kris' achievements in life
Two days before Mother's Day, Kim Kardashian paid tribute to Kris Jenner by sharing a throwback photo of her mother wearing a lemon-colored bikini in the late ‘80s, drawing the ire of fans.
The snap in question, was taken not long after the momager had given birth to her fourth child and her only son, Rob Kardashian. "Early Mother’s Day appreciation post for my mom! I found this pic and this is not long after having her 4th child!!!! MAJOR GOALS always in everything you do mom! I love you," the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star captioned the picture.
The two-piece bathing suit with pink straps let Kris display her tanned and toned figure as she wore shades and posed in front of a flower bush. The picture did not bode well with Kim's fans who accused her of being shallow and commenting on only her mother's figure as she failed to mention any of Kris' achievements in life.
“What a deep and meaningful message she sent to you. Stay thin. That’s all," one user commented, while another commented, “Tell what you love about your mom. Is it her caring? Her understanding? Her boundless love for you? Nope, she got skinny and tan after four babies!! GOALS.”
A third said: "Why is it always about being thin? People: Size of your body does NOT equal your worth."
However, there were not all bad comments for the mother-of-six. "She's still hot, wow. Good genes 4 U," one user said, while a second wrote, “Kris is and has always been a babe.”
The throwback photo was not the only Mother's Day present that Kim dedicated to her mother. In a later post, the KKW Beauty also shared that she also bought the original camera used by photographer Alfred Garcia at Kris’ 1978 wedding to the late Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003. Part of the gift included photos of her mother's wedding day from a photo album that she has put together. Kim was sure that Kris will enjoy reminiscing about those days even though she ended up divorcing Robert in 1991, years before his death.
"I was so excited when I found the wedding photographer who shot her and my dads wedding back in 1978. I purchased the camera he used on their wedding day and the photos and made an album for her. She never had those photos so to see them brought out so many happy tears!" she captioned the post.
In another post, she wrote: "I live for sentimental gifts so thank you Alfred Garcia for making my mom super happy this Mother’s Day! I couldn’t wait to give her the gift!"
Kris and Robert's marriage ended on a bitter note after she cheated on him with a guy called Todd Waterman. When Robert found out, they separated, and with no access to Robert's money, Kris said that she found herself completely broke. “I didn’t have anything,” she told People magazine. “I went to the market one day and my credit card didn’t work. I had a market credit card and I’m like, ‘I can’t even buy a tomato.’"
She added that her biggest regret is that “that marriage fell apart.”
