“The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands, told Page Six. “Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.”
“It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me,” she wrote in the caption. “You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is. But I will say, if you hear anything enough then you start to believe it. This is an example of how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me.”
Months later, certain portions of the media as well as Twitter users joked about her “changing appearance” and said Khloé had become “unrecognizable” over recent years.
