Kim Kardashian West Fans React to Her Old Family Photo; ‘Who the Hell Are These People?’

Kim Kardashian West has always shared a large portion of her life on Instagram and other social media channels. In fact, part of what makes the reality TV star’s brand so successful is her penchant for oversharing on social media. Kardashian West has learned how to successfully use both old and new media to continue building upon her personal and professional brands.

As much as fans love to see pictures of Kardashian West’s famous family, they love seeing old pictures even more. Lately, the KKW Fragrance owner has been posting more and more throwback pictures to entertain her fans. But, the most recent throwback photo she posted to Instagram left fans a little baffled. “FAM,” Kardashian West captioned a black and white photo of herself and all of her siblings.

‘KUWTK’ fans think the famous family looks unrecognizable

The Instagram post quickly racked up over 2 million likes. Furthermore, diehard fans were quick to gush over the photo. But, other fans were thoroughly confused by the photo. People couldn’t help but notice how drastically different all six siblings look today. “Who the hell are these people??” one person questioned, racking up over 1,500 likes on their comment. “The originals,😂” someone else shared in response.

While some people chalked up the change in appearance to age, others were not convinced. Many fans of the KarJenners believe that they’ve all undergone some type of surgery. While the famous siblings have vehemently rejected these claims, only ever admitting to fillers and botox, many people are skeptical. “At the rate everyone altering their faces & bodies, this is precisely what all family throwback pics gonna look like in a few years #unrecognizable” one Instagram user commented on Kardashian West’s post.

Instagram users are convinced Khloé had plastic surgery

In particular, fans singled out Khloé as the Kardashian who looked the most drastically different. “Awww look at Koko’s old face,” one person wrote, using a well-known nickname for Khloé. “Had NO idea that was Khloé,’ another person responded. “Khloé is in this picture?!?! LOL. Crazy,” yet another Instagram user shared. “My thoughts exactly…it’s almost like…who are those people, 😏” another KUWTK fan said in response.

Today we celebrate my mom. Anyone that knows her, knows how sentimental she is. For her birthday I planned a small lunch, with just her kids and her closest friends of 40 + years. I sent out invites with a location where we all met. When everyone arrived, I told them I had a surprise and this wasn’t where we would be eating. I then gave everyone the REAL invitation and once everyone saw the address for where we would be going tears filled the room. I rented our childhood home. All of our memories live here especially with our dad. It’s where each Kardashian child was born and made us who we are. Growing up, the home had the most ridiculous wallpaper and kitchen set! I remade all of our table settings, decor out of the same fabric and print as the wallpaper. We had lunch at the home as if it hadn’t changed and we cried the entire time. When we walked out to get our cars to drive there, I had another surprise! I had rented every car my parents ever owned. I had some waiting outside so we could drive them to the house and the rest were lined up in the driveway of the house exactly how my parents used to have them parked. I even remade the exact license plates. (Yes my mom had a 2 DIE 4 license plate!) We drove to the home in these cars and relived our childhood! This was the best day ever. I am so proud I was able to keep such a meaningful surprise a secret from my mom and sisters for weeks! This was the most special, nostalgic day of my life and we felt my dad’s presence enjoying this day with us! I kept it together and didn’t cry the entire lunch even though I cried during the entire planning process. But at the end I went into my old bathroom, closed the door and cried so hard.

Clearly, Kardashian West will have to get used to confusion should she continue to post throwback photos of herself and her family on Instagram. Only time will tell if any of the famous siblings ever speak openly about their alleged surgical procedures. But, even if they choose not to, we’re sure fans will continue to speculate.
