Kim Kardashian is a divisive figure, revered as much as she is hated.
But it’s not often photos on her very active social media accounts make us feel bad for her.

After the 34-year-old posted her first baby bump selfie on Monday, she was immediately hit with claims she was faking her pregnancy. It’s not the first time her pregnant body has been critiqued, with haters commenting on her weight gain during her first pregnancy.
And she’s not the first star to be accused of faking a baby bump, with Beyoncé falling victim to similar allegations following her Sunday Night interview (below).
But, according to social media users and media outlets like Hollywood Life (with a headline beginning with “Kim Kardashian faking pregnancy?”), the reality TV star’s baby bump looks “strangely small”. They say Kardashian’s bump in her selfie is bigger than the bump snapped by paparazzi earlier that day, leading to speculation that she must be using a prosthetic belly (although, would the size of a fake belly not be the same?) and using a surrogate to carry her child. Apart from the fact that angles, lighting, shadow, whether she had a big meal and when she last had a pee could all affect the size of the bump, this speculation is absurd.
