Kim Kardashian gets offended that US Weekly calls her ‘fuller figured’

dancing with stars 150409
US Weekly had a small fashion article in their latest issue which happened to mention that clothing store Forever 21 now has a plus-sized line, and that “Kim Kardashian is a fan.” It was implied that Kardashian was in the line’s target size range, which is listed from XL – 2XL, but nowhere in the article did it specifically mention that Kim was that size. On her blog, Kardashian said that she does like Forever 21 but is not a plus size, and that’s she’s a size 2, not a 2XL. What’s more is that she said it offended her to be called fuller figured:

I feel that this clipping from Us Magazine is a bit misleading, so I wanted to comment on it.

I am a huge fan of Forever 21 and I’m very happy they have expanded their line to include a plus-size range, but I am not in that size category and this article makes it sound like I am! I am a curvy girl and I love my curves, but curvy and plus-sized are two very different things. I work really hard to maintain my curves while staying slim and healthy, so to be classed as a “fuller-figured woman” of extra large proportions is a little offensive.

For the record, I am a size 2, not 2XL.

[From Kim Kardashian's blog]

Kardashian recently lost weight through diet and exercise, and partially in preparation for the launch of her fitness DVD, “Fit in Your Jeans by Friday.” The 5’2″ reality star said she went from a size 6 to a size 2. You can see how she would take offense at being called “fuller figured,” because she wasn’t even an XL before she lost weight. You can also imagine how Kim’s comments would be construed as insensitive toward women who do wear larger sizes though. People are trashing Kim in the comments on her blog, saying that her comments show how small-minded and self-obsessed she is:

Your comments made you sound incredibly shallow and superficial. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with being plus sized or 2XL! I am not + sized myself, but that was incredible insensitive of you to say. Had you been wiser, that wouldn’t have bothered you.

I can’t believe that you really took time out of your day to scan and post this article. Next time you read things, make sure you’re fully understanding it. I feel badly because not only did you hurt my feelings, but many of your fans’ feelings.

Many are saying that the article never said Kardashian was in that size range and by responding in that way she’s hurt people that used to look up to her:

The article didn’t even say she was plus size but even if it did there’s a tactful way of addressing the issue without putting others down

[Comment from nikkisws]

kim, i love you and i think you’re a great role model. however, they didn’t call you plus sized. I’m so proud of my body and i thought you were someone to look up to, saying to always be confident. you’ve unintentionally offended some of your fans.

[Comment from NWord]

Many are focusing on Kim’s statement that she finds it offensive “to be classed as a ‘fuller-figured woman’ of extra large proportions” as particularly insensitive. It was just in March that she said “I’m proud of my body and my curves.” Maybe she’ll issue a half-apology statement to the effect of “not that there’s anything wrong with that,” but I doubt she’ll grasp how obnoxious she was. This is the woman who posted photos of the pet chimp her family rented just a week after the incident in which a chimpanzee mauled a woman in Connecticut. She just doesn’t get it.

    She ought to be grateful a tabloid, ANY tabloid, even mentions her name at all. For someone with no discernible talent she is pretty persnickety about publicity.

  2. Wench. says:

    Those are not the thighs of a size 2.

  3. Jazz says:

    Well, Us Weekly could of called her “no talent fat ass” which is what I would of called her.

  4. saintdevil says:

    Maybe each of her butt cheeks wears size 2?

    However, at least she has the chunk in the right places, real or silicone.

  5. Enonymous says:

    This just goes to show that the people who proclaim of being proud of being “curvy” (yet put slimmer people down at the same time for some reason) are lying. You know what is the best way stop being so body conscience, is to stop with the criticism of others and talking about weight all the time.

  6. flourpot says:

    The only 2 I’m seeing is as in “2nd fitting in my specialty tailored clothes”

  7. cakes says:

    She could be a 2. she could buy clothing that runs kinda big. I’m on average a 6/8 but one store I buy from the sizes run big so I fit into their 2′s.

  8. Patrice says:

    I think Kim Kardashian is very beautiful, but girlfriend is SERIOUSLY dilusional about her body. Just this past week in US Weekly, she claimed that she is a size 2 (!), and continues to maintain that she has never had any work done. In fact, she says it so often at thsi point that I’m actually starting to think that she might even believe it herself.

  9. ash says:

    I don’t think you can fit a butt that size in a 2? No offense, just sayin.

  10. Wonder Woman says:

    maybe if you was more honest with her size it would be believable but honey no you are not a size 2

  11. vicsmith says:

    She said, a couple of months ago, defending Jessica Simpson, that she was twice her size. Saying she’s a size 2 now makes no sense.

  12. paranel says:

    She is a size 2 ? On which planet ? She is a size 8 or 10 at best. You don’t have to be ashamed and deny your actual size. She is definitely full figured.

  13. Codzilla says:

    Listen up kids, this is what happens when you don’t do anything substantial with your life.

  14. Lem says:

    I sure wish designers would stop sticking those magical size 2 stickers in every garment they sell in Hollywood.
    How can these poor girls identify themselves as individuals if the whole of the west coast wears the same size pants. Poor things. It must be very hard on one’s nerves to look through racks and racks of size 2 pants trying to find the size 2 pants that match your size 2 ass.
    Maybe they should get more specific in the labeling.

    Courtney Love’s size 2:
    Jennifer Love’s size 2:

    That might make it easier for these poor delusional rich girls to find the size 2 that’s right for them. Of course then “we” would need for target/Macy’s/walmart to get into the act
    soccer player size 2
    rugby player size 2
    player piano size 2

  15. Anoneemouse says:

    There is absolutely NO WAY that fat ass could fit into a size 2 jeans!

  16. Annie says:

    The girl is full of shit. She wants to be considered “curvy” and “thick” because that’s got positive connotations, but God forbid someone reference her as fuller-figured. People are right, she’s ridiculously self-obsessed.

    And size 2 my ass. She’s probably a size 6 and has to shimmy into it. I call bull on size 2.

  17. the original kate says:

    yeah, i love how everyone is now supposedly a size 2. kim has a great figure, it’s made her alot of money, but she is not a size 2, unless she takes a marker and writes a 2 over the 6. which reminds me of a story about mariah carey and how her PA had to cut the size 8 tags of her clothes and sew in tags that said size 4!

  18. Patrice says:

    the original kate : That’s hilarious!

  19. judy says:

    Why doesnt she get some lipo done..she has a horrible body.

  20. abbizmal says:

    She is very pretty, but size 2? Maybe her waist is, but that but has to be at least a 12.

  21. Ana says:

    hahaha… she is delusional. I’m 5’3 and 112 pounds and I can barely fit into a size three. My butts pretty flat but my hips are wider due to giving birth. Maybe one of her butt cheeks is a size two. Seriously though, they could have said worse.
    Like that she’s a no talent hussy who got famous because of a sex tape.

  22. cherryblossom says:

    Okay, I’m a size 2…Karashian is not even close.
    This girl pisses me off. She comes across as a hypocritical, self important, entilted little bitch. Well, bigger bitch.
    And uhm…isn’t “thick” and “fuller-figured” about the same thing? She IS fuller figured. She has curves. Why can’t she just deal?

  23. ! says:

    As a short curvy gal who has issues finding jeans that fit (five foot one with a bubble butt, 125 lbs), I can tell you, this girl is NOT a size 2. Maybe one of her ass cheeks is. Maybe.

  24. cakes says:

    I take back my earlier statement. I just saw pics of her backside on dlisted and there’s NO WAY she’s a size 2.

  25. Shay says:

    One problem. A juniors size 2 isn’t the same as a misses or womans size 2.

    Kim isn’t fitting a juniors,misses, or womens size 2 so she’s fooling no one.

    It’s possible to have a size 2 waist and have a size 12 ass but people with size 12 asses don’t wear size 2 pants.

  26. Aussie says:

    Why the lies. This gal is gorgeous yes, but a size 2, never ever!
    Get real Kim, don’t bullshit please.
    It makes you ugly and superficial, you have a lovely figure, but Stevie Wonder can see you are not and never were a size 2 luv. It’s like when Love Hewitt said of her fatish bikini shot, that she was a size 0 at the time, puhleez girls! You look like frickin’ idiots, when you crap on like that!

  27. Jane Stegall says:

    What a blogpost!! Very informative and also easy to understand. Looking for more such blog posts!! Do you have a myspace or a facebook?
    I recommended it on stumbleupon. The only thing that it’s missing is a bit of speed, the pictures are appearing slowly. Nevertheless thank you for this information.
