Rob Kardashian talks back to his weight bashers: ‘I’m aware that I’m fat’

Rob Kardashian

These are photos of assorted Kardashians and Jenners arriving in Paris on Monday. You can see Kourtney with her kiddos and Kris Jenner. The barely perceptible face in the background is Rob Kardashian, the black sheep of the Klan. Our agencies say that Rob hid behind the crowd and attempted to blend into his family so he wouldn’t get papped. The photogs still caught him. You can see those pictures here.

I’ve felt sorry for Rob for several months. Weird, I know. He’s not a very nice guy at all, but he’s been a regular tabloid fixture. Stuff about fat camp and physical trainers and rehab and a condescending mother. This is the same mother who forced Khloe into a gym at age 6 and told her she needed nose job at age 9. That info came straight from Khloe, but I’m almost certain that Kris Jenner has been feeding Rob stories to the tabs.

Last February, Rob claimed to have gained 40 pounds in 2 months. Various outlets are pegging him at a total weight gain of 100, which seems steep. He’s much heavier than he was a few years ago, and he knows it. That’s one thing I know for sure — anyone who gains weight is perfectly aware of it. No one needs to tell them. Rob saw that his weight gain was trending on Twitter yesterday, and he Rob decided to tweet back: “I’m aware that I’m fat.


Khloe tweeted her support for Rob too:


Khloe’s always the first family member to defend her siblings from the internet. Buuuut. I’ve seen an episode of KUWTK that zeroed in on Rob’s weight gain. Khloe wasn’t very supportive on camera. She was actually teasing him about cupcakes or donuts. Maybe that was a scripted part of the show.

I don’t mind poking fun at Rob for some of the dumb stuff he’s said or for his sock fetish, but his weight is off limits for jokes. I doubt that he’s felt humility, and he’d probably still be a womanizer if his weight fell off, but still. His return tweets are more than justified. What’s really sad is that his family’s show uses his weight as a plot point.

Here’s Rob in 2010:

    I don’t care for anyone in this family-they all disgust me-but people are effin’ mean.
    Seriously. As if he doesn’t know that he’s overweight. Ugh. People suck.

    • Dani2 says:

      Right? I don’t find this family entertaining at all but the weight comments some people make on the internet are WAY harsh.

    • blue marie says:

      + 1. I don’t know why people like to point out weight as if they are doing you a favor. People know their size.

    • Nympha says:

      And, your weight gain trending on twitter sounds like the worst nightmare.

      • Dani2 says:

        It was a trending topic? Good Lord, I’d be so embarrassed.

      • Nympha says:

        At least that’s what the article said.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Why even respond to it? This is what I don’t understand, ok it’s hurtful but why add fuel to the fire with public comments? Everything is just an opportunity for self-promotion to these people, they’ve over-exposed themselves and there is no way to undo that. I don’t feel sorry for any of them.

    • I Choose Me says:

      I frickin hate it when people make comments to people about their weight. Whether it’s significant gain or loss. I’ve actually called out family members for this. It’s very prevalent where I live and is so fricking irritating: “I see you lost the baby weight,” or “girl you getting fat” or “where you going with that belly, the wife feeding you too good?”

      When you do call them out, it’s, “I didn’t mean anything by it. Just sayin.” JUST STOP!

    • Leah says:

      I think its disgusting too but Rob is no better he made Rita W***a a trend on twitter. I don’t care that he had his heart broken by Ora he still publicly slut shamed her and pretty much created this misogynistic perception of her.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        He’s a super-duper dbag for that. No excuses. None.

        I still think people should STFU about other peoples’ weight, though.

      • elisa says:

        He absolutely is a douche for that, and I certainly don’t excuse such behavior either. But I agree with TheOriginalKitten that people shouldn’t shame people for their weight either.

    • FinallyFr33 says:

      Let’s just focus on Khloe’s purchased ASSets.

  2. Bedge says:

    The dude in the last elevator image looks like Lamar!

    • Aussie girl says:

      I thought the same for like one second!

    • Kris says:

      LOL! I thought so too! I was like, damn, they are making Lamar take the luggage!

      • word says:

        I doubt Lamar’s invited. The bigger question is where’s Scott?

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        @word: I think in the first image used that is Scott off to the right. He’s facing away from the camera but he has the [Patrick] Bateman hair going on so I’m thinking that’s him.

  3. LadyMTL says:

    I can only feel sorry for him to a certain extent…he lost his dad at a young age and his mom seems about as sympathetic as a bug zapper. Still, he’s rich and young and willingly put himself on TV. So yes, I agree that snarking at him because of his weight is cruel but don’t expect me to go “aawwww, poor Rob.”

    • Tx says:

      +1. we can feel bad for him for his dad and gaining weight (esp because it seems like severe depression/anxiety were involved), but sorry Rob, you and you family make your money by exposing yourselves. The reaction won’t always be good.

      • tila says:


      • SpookySpooks says:

        But did he put himself on TV willingly? How old was he when the reality show started?
        Being fat in today’s world is hard. Losing weight is even harder. Trust me, I know.
        But to be fat ( and a man) in that family must be hell.

      • word says:

        @ SpookySpooks

        He was in college when the show started. He had a choice.

  4. Kiddo says:

    On the one hand, I can feel sympathy because there is likely depression or anxiety tied to the weight gain. His response was on point and kind of funny. But on the other stronger side, these people are almost the ground zero architects of ‘no publicity is bad publicity’: You built that house, now go live in it, or make a change and move.

    • LakeMom says:


    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Agreed but is it really fair to lump him in with the rest of them? Genuinely asking-I don’t know much about him….
      I assume that he got a paycheck for being on the reality TV show but I just can’t blame him for being born into a terrible family.

      • Kiddo says:

        Wasn’t there an Osbourne sibling who never appeared on their show? It can be done.
        I think they all (Ks) love the attention when it is praise and/or ca-ching in the register, but then when any criticism arises, they are victims. A part of me thinks that they like/relish that role too. He could, if he wanted to, quietly fade from the public.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        You wouldn’t eventually say something if the Twitterverse, internetz, and blogs wouldn’t stop calling you fat?

        I’d say something.

        …and I wouldn’t say it as nicely as he did.

        I feel like he pretty much did fade from the public–he’s hardly in the forefront of every blog and entertainment show like his sisters are.

        Regardless, if he suffers from mental illness or depression, I hope he’s getting the help he needs.

      • Kiddo says:

        OKitt, I said that his retort was on point and funny. I think the way he responded was very good, if it had been nastier, it would have lost its punch and impact.

        I wouldn’t be involved in any reality TV from the get, in spite of my family’s desires. I believe that he still appears on the show. If you don’t want attention, then being on social media and responding isn’t going to help.

        He is creating more headlines for himself, not less. It would have died down without his response, people would begin to forget about him. He is feeding the beast.

        And I agree, he should take care of what ails him.

      • mayamae says:

        I’ve always wondered if Aimee Osbourne regretted not doing the show. She’s an actress, and while her siblings got a lot of opportunities from the show, she’s still struggling. She may be the only child who didn’t have a drug problem, so that’s something.

      • Petee says:

        Yes Kiddo.It was Amy.Ozzy’s first with Sharon.She choose to stay away from the spotlight.

      • Bridget says:

        This is where I have a hard time feeling bad for him. He agreed to be on that TV show as a legal adult, he’s collected a paycheck from it for years, and he even appeared on a second show (Khloe and Lamar, right?). It was his choice to take the easy money and become a public figure. He doesn’t like it? Get off Twitter, get off the show (posters are correct, Aimee Osborne chose not to participate) – it’s not like he’s an integral part of the show. This public scrutiny comes with the easy money and the tiny bit of fame – as its been pointed out before, the Kardashians chose to turn themselves into the product.

  5. LakeMom says:

    I don’t know…there’s something douche-y about this guy that tells me he’d be the first to fat shame a woman so I don’t have a lot of sympathy for him.

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Good Lord, Khloe is barely literate.

    I feel sorry for him, too, for some reason.

    • idk says:

      I feel sorry for him because of the family he belongs to. I don’t really feel sorry for him when it comes to his weight gain. He has access to the best trainers and food plus he doesn’t have a 9-5 job or kids or anything else to keep him away from the gym. He could literally work out all day every day if he wanted to. His sisters made fun of his weight on the show. Khloe is a hypocrite. TMZ is the one who put up the story and showed his recent pic. TMZ is also the place the Kardashians run to when they need publicity. This family is full of sh*t.

      • lucy2 says:

        He does have advantages that many don’t, but I’m guessing it’s not that simple, especially if this is a recent thing. Like most other addictions it’s probably rooted in something else, and given his mother and family in general, I can imagine he’s got a lot of issues.
        I can’t feel too sorry for anyone in that family though, they all have the resources to walk away from the fame circus and go try to lead productive lives, but none of them do.

      • kri says:

        I feel kind of bad for him, too. I do not watch this show- I swear if someone tried to make me I would gouge out my eyes with my own thumbs. I think it must be a nightmare to be involved with this clan of turds. And to have a mother like the Evil Incubator…you have very little chance of a normal life. I don’t fat shame, I only ass-implant shame. Er, that sentence looks odd, but you guys know what I mean. Get away from all of them, Rob.

      • HappyMom says:

        It’s not access to a gym/trainers. Clearly this much weight gain is because he’s got issues. I don’t know anything about the guy-could be a complete tool-but he looks miserable.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Well he also has access to doctors and mental health care professionals, he has every possible advantage available, he needs to focus on himself not the Twitterverse. He’s immature, maybe he has real issues but he seems very childish.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      I’ve seen a picture of Khloe on DM, what in the world did she do to her lips?

      • word says:

        Probably injected them with the same stuff she injected into her a$$?

      • HappyMom says:

        She looks so ridiculous between that butt and those lips. Do the Kardashian/Jenners have some kind of special mirror that none of the rest of us have?

    • Amanduh says:

      So true re: Khloe. At least spell check your tweets?? Immbarressing!! (Just kidding … Embarrassing)

  7. Patricia says:

    It’s really worrisome how he gained all this weight so suddenly. It screams depression and or/substance abuse issues to me.
    Any theories on what’s really going on with this guy?

    • Krista says:

      I agree Looking at the tmz photos it looks like he might be sick? I dunno, but I think something is up and it seems serious.

    • HappyMom says:

      Having no sense of purpose? No real job other than “sock designer”? Being the lone guy in that family of hags? Having that horrible woman as a mother who pretty much destroyed any chance of having self esteem? Losing Lamar as his BIL-apparently the only family member he felt close to? I know there are far greater problems in the world, and he may not be a particularly nice guy, but I feel so sorry for him.

      • RosettaStoned says:

        Damn, when you put it that way….

        I certainly would never want to change places with him!

    • mayamae says:

      It’s a drastic weight gain for sure. I feel bad for the guy if he has some chronic health issue that requires steroids. How would you keep that a secret when you’ve got this drastic weight gain? I also wonder if he was previously on long term Adderall for ADHD and stopped taking it.

    • kri says:

      @ Patricia you are right. I honestly think he might be an alcoholic (stressing’ might”) and possibly have food addiction issues as well. His coloring is jaundiced, which can sometimes indicate alcoholism. It’s sad, and I totally disapprove of his Rita Ora thing, but this guy is not well.

    • Petee says:

      I think substance abuse.He seems like he drinks a lot.Being big like that is hard.He is also the only male in a female dominated family.It has to be hard on him.

  8. Tiffw28 says:

    I had to laugh when I read khloes tweets , while the message is a valid one – coming from her is rather ridiculous (. Hello pot meet kettle…) . This family has made their fortune off their looks and a flippin s3x tape , they put themselves out there so it’s fair game. You can’t pick and choose to benefit what you want , you can’t cry oh the Paps when you call them and tell them where you are and so on. Now as far as Rob I appreciated his tweets because he is no where near the fame wh3re the rest of the plastic family is even though he benefited from it. Can you imagine being over weight and in a family where all they value is looks?

    • D says:


      Khloe has been working hard on her looks, always posting selfies of her butt and how small her waist is. Obviously, it matters to her!

      • snowflake says:

        khloe has gotten really upset over people calling her fat (Ive watched the show). I would do the same thing, post pics of my weight loss, a rebuttal to the people who called her fat. whether you’re in the spotlight or not, basic human decency should apply. khloe was never “fat” anyway. but you shouldn’t insult people about their weight, whether they’re famous or not. just not nice.

      • D says:

        @snowflake, I never said it was OK to comment on other’s looks/weight. In Khloe’s case, if you don’t want anyone commenting on your body then don’t post pictures focusing on it. She obviously does care why else post the pictures, whether she is trying to prove people wrong or not. Now, she has no control over the pap photos that show up whens she doesn’t want them out there. But this family calls the paps all the time!

  9. BeckyR says:

    This kid is wasting his life.

  10. Karen says:

    If a women gained 80 lbs bc of pregnancy is a news story and free for all. Let alone a women gaining just because. But if a man gains bc he stops the gym and it’s of limits (even the daily mail didn’t mention it and they’re awful). So weird. Body bash no one, or everyone. I’d prefer no one.

  11. eliza says:

    I feel absolutely ZERO sympathy for this ill trmpered, misogynistic douche bag.

    Oh boo hoo. He is called fat. How he quickly forgets how HE has treated women in the past. Mind you, I despise the Kardashian’s but found his constant comments to his own sisters about being whores disgusting. He was also one who commented on Kim and Khloe’s weight. He referred to Rita Ora as a dirty whore and went out of his way to harass Adrienne Ballon into taking him back after he cheated on her and proceeded to call her filthy names.

    So if Rob is being mocked in the press, I say good. He is now reaping what he sowed. He felt free to mock and say nadty things about women now he sees that he is not exempt from the same mockery and comments.

  12. paola says:

    Who are they kidding?
    They’re all fat apart from the 2 younger girls. They just use surgery to keep the weight in check.
    I think Rob is harmless and he’s probably the only Kardashian i can suffer because he seems to run away from the cameras instead of running towards them. Growing up in that family i’d worry more about other things, maybe the weight gain is only a reaction to the extreme pressure is under and a scream for help.

  13. Talie says:

    If you believe BlindGossip, he has some major mental health issues that he was supposedly working through. Although, he seems to be struggling still if his tweets are any indication about how he doesn’t believe in therapy. Yeah, yeah… get help.

    • chaine says:

      some medications for depression and other mental health conditions can have a side effect of weight gain. one of my family members went on something for depression and quickly gained 30-40 lbs, so stopped the meds, apparently preferring being non-functionally depressed to being overweight.

      • word says:

        He would have to see a psychiatrist to be put on anti-depressants no? He doesn’t believe in therapy or counselling so who diagnosed him with depression? Can a family doc just give you anti-depressants because you say you’re depressed?

      • mayamae says:

        Yes. Primary care physicians over reach all the time. Some hand out Ritalin and Adderall, but most prescribe anti-depressants.

        If meds caused this weight gain, it should red flag any GP that they’re in over their head, and send him to a psychiatrist.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Many things have weight gain as a side effect, including many other prescriptions, it is not necessarily anti-depressants.

  14. Silk Spectre says:

    I don’t care for his weight but FFS… DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFE! DUDE!! This KUWTK- sh!t won’t be on air 4ever.

    • ickythump says:

      Yes – why dont u go get a job – out ther in th real world – with real people -stop obsessing about urself n get away from ur ghastly family – why not work for a charity?

  15. elisa says:

    As much as I dislike the Kardashians and even Rob too, I feel bad for him, because he is obviously struggling. The few times that I’ve watched the show, the entire family seem so horrible to eat other and it does seem as if his Mom and sisters pick on him – ether for his weight issues or something else. I’ve never found him likable and he certainly has the monetary means to seek help for his issues, but emotional support seems somewhat lacking. Kris seems rarely supportive of anyone outside of Kim, and his sisters have teased him about his weight issues. It’s just mean.

    He always looks so depressed and anxious that I wonder if he has an eating disorder triggered by depression. I mean, I am only speaking from experience as my anorexia nervosa was triggered by depression when my sister and cousin were killed in a car accident. I imagine that being a part of that family, especially as a male black sheep, has got to be depressing and anxiety-ridden. I don’t know; I think he needs help.

    Honestly, I wish he would quit the reality biz and go back to school – not that it will ever happen given the value his family places on education.

    • Erinn says:

      Know what was sad? I watched their show for like 10 minutes while flipping through channels. He and Scott went somewhere where Rob was doing wood carvings. He did an okay job, and the woman teaching him complimented him. And he just seemed to really light up. As if the poor guys never really been told “hey good job” on something he made on his own. And you know, I believe that that might be true. I think he really craves approval because from what I can tell, he doesn’t get a lot from his mother. And here was this older female figure telling him he had some natural talent at carving this piece of log into a bear and he just looked so hopeful. Very sad.

      • Josephine says:

        If he wants REAL success and approval, he should get a job. I can’t imagine living such a meaningless life, and I think it’s part of his problem. None of them have earned anything — unlike his vacant sisters, maybe it bothers him.

      • elisa says:

        That is incredibly, pitifully sad.

        He really needs to distance himself from his family, doesn’t he? Strike out on his own, away from reality tv. I’m sure he has excellent connections through Rob Sr.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        If he suffers from crippling depression or mental illness, it can be hard to just get out of bed, much less hold down a steady job.

        Just sayin’.

      • Erinn says:

        Josephine, that’s incredibly insensitive if he does in fact have mental illness struggles. I know that when I was at my worst, it was a fight to just go and have a shower. If he isn’t trying to get past that kind of thing, a job WOULD do him good. Hell, get involved in a charity or something and find some meaning in life. But again, if he’s severely depressed, I really truly feel for him and understand why he’s not doing anything with his life.

      • Audrey says:

        Isn’t he the only one in the family who went to college or something? I hope he can get it together and break away from the family. I used to hope for the same for Khloe but I have my doubts now

      • Dani2 says:

        @Erinn Your post really made me even more sad for him, the only Kardashian I actively dislike is Kris. Her kids lives are ultimately a product of what she has put into their lives, she really does all that she can to exploit them. I feel like in this situation with Rob, she’d be the kind of mother to lay around fitness magazines by “accident” and be like, “don’t you think you should lose some weight, honey?” in that patronising sickly-sweet voice with that perfect Stepford wife smile. She is so self-centred and I feel like a person like her shouldn’t have had a single kid (let alone six) in the first place.

      • mayamae says:

        I haven’t watched the show in years, but Bruce always seemed like Rob’s ally, and now that he’s gone, maybe Rob’s having a hard time coping.

  16. Erinn says:

    I don’t even care – I’m saying it: I’m attracted to 2010 Rob, and I feel so wrong for it.

    That being said, I’ve never mocked the guy for his weight. I think depression ties into it a lot, and I have a lot of empathy for that.

    I know he’s rich, and young, but that doesn’t make your life easy all the time. I get that he makes the decisions in his life, and has way more opportunities than most, but at the end of the day, he’s still a human with problems like anyone else.

    • anon33 says:

      I’m attracted to him too. GOOD GOD that man was gorgeous.

      I’d hit Scott too…I have issues.

  17. Dani says:

    I remember being obsessed with Rob back in the day (shame on me). He was very attractive, albeit an asshole. I think he gained weight to spite his family. It just seems so perfect. Like, they always ignored him and mocked him and he decided you know what, let’s f this sht up and embarrass the klan since all they care about is looks and money.

    I’m probably wrong but that would have been nice.

    • elisa says:

      He was quite attractive a few years ago, even I have to admit and I’m generally picky.

      • word says:

        I agree when he was dating Adrienne Baillon, he was looking fab. He could go back to that if he just ate right, worked out, and got help for his despression (if that’s what he has).

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I have a similar background to the K’s, half-middle eastern, half-Western European, and my brother went from being slim and trim as a young man, to seriously packing it on and getting burly in about two years. He has battled with his weight ever since. My brother doesn’t get enough exercise and eats too much but that’s it, his chubbiness is all natural and Rob seems just like him. It may be depression or medicine but I’m guessing it’s too much pizza and video games. He needs to get up and move, exercise battles depression.

      • Lollipop says:

        I’m not sure how your background is similar to theirs?

      • UnoriginalNight says:

        @Lollipop. I’m presuming (hopefully not out of line) Bob Loblaw is referring to the fact that many consider Armenians to be Middle Eastern. I lived in the Caucasus for (too many) years and trying to define or sort its various peoples by Western standards is a headache. Technically, the three Trancaucasian nations have long straddled the line between East and West, though they for the most part identify with Europe. Ethnically, the region is partially defined by an ancient history of conquests, and the conquerers came from the East. (The Russians are a newer people, and it took them ages to get past those mountains, so their influence has been more marginal until relatively recently.)

        It’s a wonderful, wild part of the world — just gorgeous. And, unlike the Kardashians, known for being highly literate and intellectual. Men there do tend to start to put on weight a bit early; it’s sort of a cliche, though often true. My ex-husband (a Georgian) started in his late 20’s. I like a belly, so I didn’t mind, but I don’t know if it’s genetics, or the old tradition of long, beautiful meals that persists, or something else entirely — it happens, and is often viewed as a Middle Eastern trait (like people don’t put on weight elsewhere as they age… (-rolling eyes-)).

        Anyway, sorry for the rambling overlong text; I remain unduly enthusiastic about that pain in the neck part of the world. 🙂 And I can see why someone with some Middle Eastern heritage might feel a degree of kinship or familiarity with someone with an Armenian background. There really is a lot of shared history, some culture, and even genetics.

  18. nicegirl says:

    You can do it, Rob. Weight is temporary.

  19. Delta Juliet says:

    Wow. I looked at those pictures and I would have had no idea that was him if it wasn’t written. His face looks completely different.

  20. Sam says:

    Part of me wants to feel bad for him – frankly, it’s not too often that men get called out on their size, and it can really rattle them. But then I remember the whole Rita Ora thing and frankly, yes, he’s a nasty piece of work. And Khloe needs to step out of her brother’s fights. Isn’t one of the first rules of being in the public eye is that you don’t actually read twitter comments about you?

  21. Audrey says:

    Is that khloe holding the kid in the first pic?

    Her butt looks normal. Has she just been padding it? I thought she had implants but idk now

    • idk says:

      I think that’s mason and penelope’s nanny. LOL when have you seen Khloe ever wear flats or a sensible outfit?

  22. word says:

    I don’t know. Of all the tragedies in the world, should we really feel sorry for someone who is overweight? There are many things he can do to lose weight if he wanted to. It’s up to him. If he wants to remain overweight, that too is his choice. I’ll keep my pity for more important things. Also, this family loves attention, good or bad. Rob’s weight gain will be a plot for their show. I wouldn’t be surprised if his mother had him gain weight on purpose. This family is ruthless after all.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I don’t feel bad for him because he’s fat. I feel bad for him because people are cruel to him because of his weight.

      I work out every day. That isn’t an exaggeration. Every day. I’m fit because I work hard at it but I see no need to denigrate others because they’re overweight. They KNOW they’re overweight–why the need to remind them? It’s patronizing and mean-spirited.

      The human capacity for empathy is pretty limitless–it’s possible to feel bad for people who are made fun of AND feel terrible for the myriad of tragedies in modern society.

        I don’t feel too bad for him.

        The cruelty is wrong. I agree. But at the same time, it’s on-line cruelty. He chooses to read the comments people post. He should “unplug” and stay off-line or not google himself. Why torture yourself right? I never said it’s ok to make fun of someone who is fat. I’ve NEVER done that and would NEVER do that. I just don’t feel the need to feel sad for him. There are way more important things in this world to feel sad or outraged about. He’s a rich spoiled dude who let himself go. It happens. He can bounce back and I’m sure he will. Anyways, this is just my opinion.

      • THeOriginalKitten says:

        Ok yeah I don’t disagree with all this but the more important question is: Is it THAT hard to not make fun of people who are overweight?
        I’m not saying this dude has some tragic, terrible life but why can’t we as a society collectively teach people to not make fun of others? Why is the onus always on those who are teased to have a thick skin?

        Eh, maybe I’m getting preachy…I just know how hurtful stuff like that can be–no matter how rich you are, no matter how famous you are, no matter how much you’re supposed to be immune to that sh*t.
        I’ve probably already defended him too much (more than I intended) but I hate it when people pick on people’s physical appearance–it’s just so unnecessary and so bad for the human soul.

        @ THeOriginalKitten

        I too agree, people shouldn’t make fun of others for their appearance. That’s horrible. Unfortunately, in the world we live in today we can’t shut other people’s mouths up so we have no choice but to develop a thick skin.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I agree with your sentiment TOK, but common sense would seem to indicate he should not post “woe is me” comments about it. That will only encourage bullies and trolls to be mean, if they know it bugs him. I find this all very calculated by the K’s, to once again court public attention, via any avenue, and get talked about or sympathized with. They’re just a pack of grifters, they’ll exploit every aspect of their lives.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      I do feel sorry for him. I was overweight a big chunk of my life – my teenage years and it affected my self esteem greatly. I lost the weight, but the self esteem and body issues remain. I was lucky to have a loving family. This poor guy hasn’t. Of course, there are much much worse thing than being fat, but it’s hard to pick and chose the things you feel bad about.

    Last season on their show, he cried at the doc’s office because he didn’t want to take his shirt off in front of the cameras as he said he felt “fat”. He said he was going to do something about his weight. However, it appears since then, he has put on another 25 pounds. I wonder if he’s doing this on purpose so that once he becomes clinically “obese” he can just go ahead and get gastric by-pass surgery ???

  24. The Original Mia says:

    No sympathy. He’s been a nasty piece of work to the women he’s dated. I figure all this weight gain is karma hitting him hard and fast where it hurts the most: his image. I’ve said it once. I’ll say it again. Get off TV. Get therapy. Get a life that doesn’t revolve around your sisters and mommy.

  25. Lisa says:

    If this were a woman (not necessarily a Kardashian), this would have 100 more comments saying, “She’s not fat, she’s healthy! I’m so sick of our stick figured bobble head standards. The average woman is a 12 now, you know.”

    • Skesis says:

      And if it were a Kardashian there would be 100+ comments calling her a disgusting cow.

    • kimber says:

      A what what to the ladies then!! Bc just a couple years ago the average was a size 14

  26. Penelope says:

    Eh, this family makes a living by being vapid, shallow, contrived, and in-your-face. They’ve placed themselves in the spotlight and Rob could have begged out if he wanted to remain anonymous (see: Aimee Osbourne).

    Gotta take the bad with the good.

  27. kimber says:

    I don’t like the Kardashians, but I have never made fun of their weight. I think it’s just a subject that is mean. Yes I did think Kim did NOT dress flattering for her pregnancy, but that is a jab on her style not her body. Rob isnt pushed into our faces like the females are, so I give him a free pass and wish him well, because if I was him I probably would have killed my own mother by now. Sad but true.

  28. ickythump says:

    Anyone with a mother like that woud hav serious issues – he needs to make a life away from that family

  29. LilyT says:

    1) if I was part of that family I would likely stress eat until I was 400lbs.

    2) Rob needs to stop whining, weight gain sucks, so do emotional problems (I’ve dealt with both).. So he should tackle them seriously if it makes him unhappy.

    3) Khloe should probably focus on her Ass that is going to block out the sun.

    After that she should learn the difference between “then” and “than”

    • idk says:

      It’s funny to hear a Kardashian call someone else “shallow”. Who is more shallow than the Kardashian Klan? Khloe just brought more attention to this whole thing. She acts as if people are scared of her or something. She made fun of Rob’s weight gain on their show. I guess if you’re getting paid to do it, then it’s ok? Losing weight is hard, it takes a lot of self-control and determination. Rob can do it if he really wanted to.

      • lrm says:

        i said something similar below re: Khloe’s comments-superficial, shallow not judging others based on appearance. lol. I think maybe that’s the point of her replying=to get more attention and PR for their trip and whatever projects they’ve got going on at the moment. Maybe the brother is gearing up for a weight loss sponsor or reality show contract or something…in fact, maybe they STARTED this twitter trend with fake accounts. I mean, who would actually be spending time thinking about them to comment, unless the family put it out there and got the ball rolling? These people are constantly trolling us all, I think…

  30. Damaris says:

    I can’t get myself to feel bad for Rob. He’s rich, privileged, and has amazing connections. He could do whatever the hell he put his mind to. I’d use my sisters’ fame to make the most amazing comeup ever. Get a hold of yourself, Rob. Jeez.

  31. lrm says:

    I love that Khloe tweets that you shouldn’t judge people [aka her brother] based on their physical appearance. LMAO. That’s their whole thing-the whole family makes a living off superficial image and appearance.

  32. ickythump says:

    Rob coud redeem himself and th rep of the family by becoming th first kardashian to become involved in a worthy cause – to help others and to give his time and money to make a real difference in th world – how cool woud that be?
