What Kourtney Kardashian Has to Say to Body-Shaming Critics

Considering that Kourtney Kardashian has a large following on social media, the star, unfortunately, receives some negativity amidst all of the positive engagement. Previously, in May 2020, Kardashian had to respond to pregnancy rumors after a fan left a negative comment on one of her Instagram posts, per Page Six. During a Q&A session for her website POOSH, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star addressed the incident and even shared how she chooses to respond to any body-shaming critics.

A fan asked Kardashian during the Q&A how she protects her mental health in the face of cyberbullying. In response, the mom-of-three brought up the fact that she had to deal with this very topic recently because of some haters. She added how she also noticed when someone commented on a photo of hers, stating that she appeared to look pregnant. "I commented back and said, 'This is the shape of my body. I've definitely gained a few pounds over this quarantine time, and I love my body and I’m proud of my shape and I'm obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body.'"

"I don't think I look pregnant at all," she added. "We’re all shaped differently and that's my body and I’m proud of it, so that's how I respond to the negative comments. It's not always easy." Kardashian went on to share that she does handle the haters with a good dose of sarcasm on occasion. But, she does try to stick with the tried and true method of "killing them with kindness." She then went on to share some direct advice to her fans, saying, "Try not to let those comments affect you. If they do and you know that, then don't look at comments. I know it’s easier said than done, but really try to keep the positivity for your mental health."

As fans will recall, the matter that Kardashian referenced occurred in mid-May 2020. At the time, the reality star posted a photo of herself in a bikini laying down reading with her profile in view. This prompted one user to comment, "SHE'S PREGNANT." But, of course, Kardashian didn't waste too much time before she set the record straight. Just like she shared on POOSH, the KUWTK star responded by saying that she loves her body, writing, "This is me when I have a few extra pounds on, and I actually love it. I have given birth three amazing times and this is the shape of my body."
