Khloe Kardashian shared what would under normal circumstances have been a hot pic last week that is until people zoomed in on her hands. And the memes about her looking like she had chicken fingers took over. Well tonight she posted a pic promoting her Good American brand and this time she’s hiding her hands. Now one can argue that going viral traumatized her but come on, she’s been through worse. And let’s not forget the fact that the internet does in fact acknowledge her transformation. She looks amazing even though the common perception is that she’s had a handful of makeovers and Tristan Thompson cheated on all of them.

But is it right to be picking on someone like her when she’s so obviously growing a complex over it? She said in a 2011 interview with Britain’s Love Magazine, “I’m the ugly sister. I’m the fat one. I’m the transvestite. I have had those mean things said about me at least twice a day for the last five years. It’s horrible, you know? But I can brush that stuff off. I got used to it.”

And why does this matter? Well let’s take a look at former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst. She did an essay for Allure last year where she said she had been getting bullied and was receiving some of the ugliest comments on her social media imaginable. “I can’t tell you how many times I have deleted comments on my social media pages that had vomit emojis and insults telling me I wasn’t pretty enough to be Miss USA or that my muscular build was actually a “man body.” And now look what happened.

So in context, given what Khloe’s been going through with the father of her child and image issues, maybe people should lay off of her just a bit.
