Piers Morgan has hit out at Khloe Kardashian for being ‘desperate’ to remove an unfiltered picture of herself from the internet.
Speaking in his column for the Daily Mail, the 56-year-old said that the reality star and her sisters’ ‘scam’s been blown’.
He wrote: “I didn’t think there was anything left in the world of the Kardashians that could possibly shock me. But I was wrong.
“The photo of Khloe Kardashian in a leopard print bikini that’s gone viral this week is truly jaw-dropping.
“Because it’s real. No filters, no airbrushing, little makeup, hair scraped back in a ponytail. Just a picture of how Ms Kardashian actually looks.”
Piers continued: “By comparison to all her heavily enhanced, carefully-staged glamour publicity photos, her waistline is significantly less defined, her curves less dramatic and her skin not so impossibly smooth.
“It’s Khloe unvarnished, flaws and all. And the photo was utterly horrifying.
“Not to me, I hasten to add. I thought she looked as refreshingly normal as I’ve ever seen any of the Kardashians.
“No, it was utterly horrifying to HER.
“With one carelessly released genuine photo, the scam’s been blown.”
Khloe was left furious earlier this week the photo in question was posted on social media without her permission.
She then released a statement, insisting it’s up to her how she chooses to present herself to the world and if that means using filters and photoshop then so be it.
She said: “It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me.
“For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and imperfection has been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them every day by the world.
“And when I take that criticism to use as motivation to get myself in the best shape of my life and even help others with the same struggles, I am told I couldn’t have done it through hard work and I must have paid for it all.”
She added: “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.”
