Kim Kardashian's 'skinny' posts spark social media firestorm as Emmy Rossum, Stephanie Beatriz slam KUWK star
Emmy Rossum and Stephanie Beatriz have taken to social media and are criticizing Kim Kardashian's 'skinny' posts.
Kim Kardashian might be celebrating the major strides that she made in her weight loss journey, but other stars are very critical of the way that the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star presented it.
Earlier this week, Kim shared a bunch of videos, including those featuring her sisters, Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, who praised Kim for her slim figure, as she revealed that she now weighs 119 pounds. In an Instagram video, Kendall can be heard saying, "You look so skinny," before jokingly adding, "I’m really concerned, I don’t think you’re eating."
To this Kim responds, "What?! Thank you!"
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Stephanie Beatriz took to Instagram to explain why Kim's posts affected her. "Kim Kardashian saying what she weighs and her sisters complimenting her being so skinny is like eating my brain rn," she wrote. In a second post, she added, "There’s only one time in my life when I ever weighed 119 pounds. It was right in the middle of a terrible relationship, and intense eating disorder, and I thought that I could be thinner and look even better."
She went on to add, "Everyone kept complimenting me on how I looked, and I felt desperate to stay at that weight. IT SUCKED." She concluded her posts by offering some advice and support to those who suffer from eating disorders. She shared, "So if this s**t be f**king with you I GET IT. Try not to hurt yourself over it. I’ve been texting friends for support."
Joining Beatriz was 'Shameless' star Emmy Rossum, who also shared some positive words on her own Instagram stories and wrote, "@iamstephbeatz, I love you, and I support you, and you’re beautiful and strong and powerful, and a creative bada** woman." Rossum added, "@iamstephbeatz, the only time I was 119 pounds is when I had MONO. On a magazine shoot everyone was ‘freaking out over how good’ I looked. I had lost 10 pounds and was gaunt and sick, and felt faint… It totally messed with my head. I love you, and I’m with you."
Rossum also had some words of encouragement to offer. She said, "You never know what someone is going through. If you’re having a tough time with body image, I promise you’re beautiful, and this feeling will pass. Today is just a moment. Practice some self-care and reboot. Take a bath. Take a walk. Take a yoga class. Make a healthy nutritious meal and watch your favorite funny movie. Tomorrow is another day."
She also went on to share a quote by Kate Moss which reads, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels," noting that this way of thinking is "WRONG." She then listed a series of many treats and snacks and wrote, pasta, creme brulee, fries, cheese, and more.
'Good Place' star Jameela Jamil also took to Instagram to speak out against the 'KUWTK' star's posts and wrote, "Dear the Kardashians. And every girl who looks to them for a reference of how to value themselves. Follow @i_weigh for a dose of reality and self-esteem". In her post, she also spoke about many important females in history noting that nobody knew how much they weighed when they made their mark in history. "You don’t know? That’s the right answer! Because it doesn’t matter," Jamil wrote.
