Khloe Kardashian took to Instagram live to address the ongoing saga over her unfiltered photo making it onto the internet. The Kardashian's team have been working HARD to get it taken down but Khloe just decided to address the situation head on.
In clips of the livestream which she later posted on her feed on Wednesday, April 7, the mother of one stripped off in front of her fans. She took off her sweatshirt and pulled down her sweatpants to show off her sculpted abs, pulling up the strings of her thongs while posing for the camera.
She then penned a lengthy message that read "Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. The photo that was posted this week is beautiful."
Explaining why she wanted the unauthorized picture taken down she wrote, "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 or doesn't capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point - and then shares it to the world - you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared - regardless of who you are."
Khloe the addressed living under "the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other's standards of how I should look has been too much to bear." She noted, "I'm of course not asking for sympathy but I am asking to be acknowledged for being human."
Khloe then continued "For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and imperfection has been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them everyday by the world," she went on lamenting. "And when I take that criticism to use as motivation to get myself in the best shape of my life and to even help others with the same struggles, I am told I couldn't have done it through hard work and I must have paid for it all."
She even admitted that she liked "a good filter, good lighting and an edit here and there," she stressed, "My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It's not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable or not anymore."
Finale Khloe said "We are all unique and perfect in our own way. Whichever way one chooses to be seen. I have realized that we cannot continue to live life trying to fit into the perfect mold of what others have set for us. Just do you and make sure your heart is happy."
