#6 “Her Big Middle Finger To The World”
Kim Kardashian shut down the Internet when she posted a photo of her curvy post-pregnancy bod in a white bathing suit. The move was what she called “her big middle finger to the world” and that’s why it landed a spot on our list. Kim garnered fame after the leak of her sextape but maintained an image equated with perfection.
Kim shot up to 200 pounds during her pregnancy and the media treated her disgracefully for it. “It really hurt my soul,” she said. “I was trying on a bathing suit and I actually just sent that to my boyfriend and I was like, “Babe, can I post this up? This is like my big middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat.” Kim said she learned a big lesson from the experience. “It changed how I am in the public a little bit…There were these stories where I was, like, 200 pounds. I was gaining weight because I was pregnant and it was really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things. And I think people sometimes question, they think I’m out ‘in hiding’ now.”
Nice to see her admit flaw and fire back at the haters.
