Chrissy Teigen weighs in on Khloe Kardashian’s current photograph debacle saying it’s a “frustrating” scenario
Earlier this month, Khloe Kardashian was concerned in a — I don’t know what to name it — a photoshop debacle? Basically, an unedited bikini photograph of Khloe (which occurred to be a terrific photograph of her, btw) was posted on-line, apparently with out Khloe’s consent, and it was rapidly wiped from the net with the household even threatening lawsuits towards individuals who have been sharing the picture. The message that the general public acquired in the entire debacle was that Khloe didn’t need anybody to see a photograph of her that wasn’t photoshopped or closely manipulated. Now, Chrissy Teigen — who’s shut with the whole Kardashian brood — has weighed in with a sensible and empathetic tackle the whole “Khloe photo” ordeal.
After the whole lot went down with Khloe’s “leaked” pictures, Khloe posted a sequence of unedited movies on social to show that she doesn’t use photoshop and in addition addressed why she took down the unique photograph.
“The photo that was posted this week is beautiful,” Khloe defined in an Instagram Live. “But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting of doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point — and then shares to to the world — you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared.”
The complete scenario erupted in on-line chatter on all sides of the aisle and Teigen weighed in throughout a phase on Watch What Happens Live, telling Andy Cohen that the entire scenario was very sophisticated and he or she feels for Khloe, even when she wouldn’t have reacted in the identical method.
Saying she felt “a million different ways” in regards to the scenario and calling it “frustrating,” Teigen added that “I actually ended up talking about it in therapy, oddly enough, because of my own body insecurity issues and what celebrities have done to people in distorting their image of what a real human body looks like.”
“I look at Khloe, and I’m like, ‘Of course, you’re so beautiful. You’re so strong,’” Chrissy stated. “The change that she’s made to her body, she’s so proud of, and everybody is so proud of, and you want someone to be like, ‘Fuck yeah, this is my body,’ in any light.”
Then, talking like someone who really does go to remedy, Teigen added that two issues could be true.
You can bemoan what message Khloe despatched to the general public when she took down that photograph whereas additionally respecting somebody’s proper to bodily autonomy.
“If she didn’t want that photo to be out, she didn’t want that photo to be out, and that’s fine too,” Chrissy stated. “I think there can be two truths…And I think the internet often forgets there’s two truths in things. They can’t possibly believe that someone would not want this photo out, but also be proud of that photo.”
Though Teigen says it she have been in Khloe’s footwear, she in all probability would have left the photograph up.
“If something like that had happened to me, I would want people to know that this is a strong, powerful photo of myself, and I’m proud of it,” Chrissy stated. “I’m willing to go through this bullshit, and to show off my body in any way I can, for other people to feel better about theirs.”
