AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian may be happy to see her closed ones praising her slimmed down figure, but many people don't feel the same. The mother of three has landed in hot water after she shared on Instagram Stories videos of her thanking her sisters for saying she looks "anorexic."
The videos in question were taken when she attended the City of Hope poker tournament at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday, July 29. Kendall Jenner could be seen looking at Kim before jokingly said, "No, like I'm really concerned. I don't think you're eating. You look so skinny." Khloe Kardashian also chimed in, telling her, "I've never seen a human being look as good. You are a walking Facetune doll."
At one point, Khloe and her pal Malika Haqq joked that Kim only consumed "celery, salad and different flavors of oxygen" as part of her diet. Kim gleefully ate up the compliments and even begged them to "tell me more." Khloe then seemingly analyzed her body and said, "She's anorexic [in the waist], her arms are like pin-thin, they're like my pinky."
While Kim has every right to be proud of her stunning figure, many people found her reaction to being called skinny and anorexic problematic. They have taken to social media to call the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star of glorifying eating disorders and sending a dangerous message to fans about body image.
"Kim Kardashian being obsessed with her sisters telling her she's so skinny she looks anorexic on her Instagram Story makes me want to throw my phone into outer space," band Best Coast wrote, while one Twitter user said, "Kim Kardashian's Instagram story of her bragging about how skinny she is makes me wanna vom."

Another outraged user tweeted, "If someone says you look so skinny they don't think you're eating that is NOT A COMPLIMENT to gloat about to your millions of followers that are majority young girls like yeah dw Kim just tell everyone not to eat then they'll look like you." One other simply said, "Kim Kardashian's Instagram story is very triggering yikes."
