This Is How Khloé Kardashian Deals With Online Bullies and Trolls
For the past few years, Kardashian has been faced with some pretty harsh criticism about the way she chooses to live her life. From being mom-shamed to getting dragged for promoting diet culture, the Good American founder can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to the things she posts online.
While Kardashian tries her best to ignore the negative comments that come her way, there have been times those online bullies have gotten to her.
Being the target of internet trolls has definitely done a number on a handful of celebrities, but instead of letting those negative people win, Kardashian has the perfect solution to not letting social media hate get the best of her.
The reality star and her sisters have been the targets of harsh criticism
Kardashian might be a fan favorite celebrity, but even she’s had to deal with the harsh reality that comes with being in the spotlight.
Ever since the premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2007, the reality star and her famous family have been faced with some intense criticism.
This family has witnessed first hand how ongoing attention can get ugly in an instant and sadly, still deal with negative backlash on a daily basis.
One family member who’s been at the center of negativity from day one of KUWTK is the Good American CEO.
Since being thrust into the spotlight, Kardashian has found herself faced with negative comments, mainly about her appearance. With her being harshly criticized for her weight shortly after the E! show became an overnight success, Kardashian previously revealed that that caused her to no longer feel comfortable in her own skin.
“Right before the show started, I thought I was in good shape, but I guess not good enough for Hollywood’s eyes,” she told People in 2015. “I didn’t realize I was the ‘fat’ sister until I went on TV and the media started saying that about me.”
“Being compared to my sisters was something I was used to,” she continued. “But being compared in such a harsh way I just thought, ‘Okay, that’s my role.’ So I started saying it before people. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m the fat, funny sister. Who cares?’ I almost let that take ownership of me. [In reality] I wasn’t fat; I wasn’t obese. But I would let society make me believe that I was.”
Turning off social media comments is a norm for Kardashian
While Kardashian has since grown to love the skin she’s in and embrace her curves, she continues to deal with bullies and trolls on a frequent basis.
Though she tries her best to not let the negativity bring her down, the reality star endures even harsher critiques when it comes to social media.
Every time Kardashian posts something up, the comments section quickly fills with a mixture of sweet and salty sentiments.
Lately, it’s felt like the reality star has gotten nothing but negative comments directed toward her and some of us have found ourselves wondering how she’s able withstand these repeated attacks?
While Kardashian is known for putting internet trolls in the place every now and again, the reality star has found a very simple way of dealing with online hate.
“Turn off my social media. It’s good to take a break and to disconnect because it doesn’t matter in my real world,” she told E! News in 2018. “People’s comments like that, my friends and family know who I am, they know our intentions and our hearts and that just doesn’t matter in my everyday life.”
Over the last few years, there’s been a few times Kardashian has taken a step back from social media due to constant negativity.
In September 2018, the reality star turned off her comments on Instagram after seeing that people had not-so-nice things to say about her daughter, True.
The following year, Kardashian took another social media break after the whole Tristan Thompson/ Jordyn Woods scandal, especially since the internet had a lot to say about this situation.
It takes a strong person to remain confident in themselves while dealing with internet trolls and from what we can tell, Kardashian is the strongest of them all.
