Uh, Khloé Kardashian, is that you? On Aug. 14, Girls Gone Wild mogul and longtime KarJenner family friend, Joe Francis, took to Instagram to share a picture of Koko on her recent Mexican vacation with Tristan Thompson, Kendall Jenner, and Ben Simmons. Now, no shade or anything… but it’s clear that the image is very, erm, raw.
Before we get into it, let’s clarify one thing: The newly-minted mama is a beautiful woman inside and out. Point blank. That said, it’s important to remember that what the Kardashians share on their personal social media accounts isn’t always an accurate representation of what they look like — i.e. filters, Facetune, and professional photoshopping.
Both images are from the same evening. The left was pulled from Khloé’s IG and the right was pulled from Joe’s. To be fair, Joe’s snapshot had some seriously harsh lighting but ultimately, that’s the point we’re making. The Kardashians never share “normal” (read: unflattering) photographs, but that’s not to say that those images don’t exist… no offense, Koko. We still love you, girl!
Naturally, fans had some pretty strong reactions to the picture. “[Khloé’s] not going to like this unedited picture!” commented one user. “Jesus, throw a filter on that for your homie. I’d be pissed,” added another.
A handful of people were kind enough to speak out in the KUWTK star’s defense. “Edit or not she’s still beautiful. This world needs to learn to be positive and not so negative all the time. [Khloé], you’re beautiful momma — with or without [a] filter,” one fan chimed in. “You know what? I like the unfiltered Koko,” added another.
Moral of the story: Not everything you see on the Internet is an accurate portrayal of what a person looks like — good or bad — so don’t be too hard on yourself!
