The Kardashians are well-known for many things, but if there’s one thing that they all stand out for, it’s their unbelievable ability to take flawless selfies. Still, Khloe Kardashian has recently come under fire for posting a picture of herself in the gym, post-workout, showing off her muscular abs and toned physique. So, what’s the problem, you ask? The image is apparently digitally altered.

After carefully looking at the image, fans were able to see a bend in the door behind Khloe, confirming that she had altered the size of her thighs in the picture. Seemingly unashamed, Khloe quickly told everyone that she had indeed distorted the shot, but left out a reason for why she did it.
Unsurprisingly, a confession simply wasn’t good enough for the Kardashian-Jenner fans. And their constant pestering eventually led Khloe to explain her reasoning behind the image — though it’s likely not what you’d expect.
“Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f***** up my knees look,” she explained on her app. “It’s because I’ve had reconstructive surgery, you a*******! My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered.”
So, just like the rest of us, Khloe was just trying to fix a part of herself that she felt insecure about. And considering how often we likely do that with our own social media posts, maybe it’s time to lay off with the judgment.
