The youngest Kardashian sister, 32-year-old Khloe, has found herself on the receiving end of backlash after posting a mirror selfie on Instagram yesterday.
Posting the photo to her 58 million followers, the reality TV star sits on the floor in the photo, her waist markedly sucked in by a Christmas-themed waist trainer.
“Even filming I got to have my waist snatched!” the personality, who is currently dating NBA player Tristan Thompson, wrote. “Thank you @premadonna87 @waistgangsociety for getting me ready for this holiday season!”
While some were peeved at Khloe for not adhering to strict U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s guidelines (by not disclaiming the post is a paid advertorial), more were upset about something else entirely.
That is, the dangers of the celebrity’s waist training obsession.
“Those are so bad for your body!,” commented one concerned fan. “They squish your organs together. People did this back in the old days but would start at a young age before their organs got developed and in the right spot. You can cause damage.”
Many agreed, adding, “that can’t be healthy,” and, “can she breathe?”.
“All your doing is telling little girls that they have to be skinny to be beautiful and that’s a damn sin,[sic]” wrote another.
“Disturbing… You look really sick please go to a Doctor.”
