Kim Kardashian and Ke$has Mom Talk Weight Bullying

8/22 9:21:26

It’s an ugly truth to admit, but we’re willing to bet that most people reading this story have, at one point or another, looked at a picture of a celeb (or someone you know, for that matter) and made a negative, petty, or otherwise judgmental comment about their weight. Sometimes in the comments section of a website, even. It’s an incredibly common thing, but negative body snarking, though it may feel harmless and minor, actually can have real consequences. And now, some of the major stars who’ve fallen victim to weight bullying are speaking out against all of the viciousness.

Ke$ha's mother, Pebe Sebert, is one of them. "One time on a conference call, Sonenberg [Ke$ha’s former manager] was screaming, 'You need to lose weight! I don't care what you do ... take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!' Sebert said in a recent interview with People. “Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself.” Luckily, Ke$ha recently sought the help she needed and is now in rehab for an eating disorder. (For the record, Sonenberg denies having made these comments.)

For Kim Kardashian, the scrutiny came from strangers, in the form of tabloids and hurtful online comments: “They really hurt my soul,” Kim said in a recent Q&A with fans. “It changed how I am in public. I've tried to live more of a private life.” Kim says that the reason she gained so much weight during her pregnancy was preeclampsia, which causes high blood pressure and swelling, among other symptoms. That being said, the amount of weight Kim gained or didn’t gain during her pregnancy isn’t actually anyone’s business, unless she wants it to be—and even if she hadn’t had preeclampsia, gaining too much weight during pregnancy isn’t a moral failing the way some people make it out to be. It’s just, occasionally, human.  

Kim was able to channel all of that negativity for some good, though: "The haters helped motivate me [to get healthy],” she says. “Seeing every crazy thing written about me gave me motivation, but it’s just my personality to want to be fit, not be lazy." We’re glad that Kim turned the nasty comments about her weight into a good thing, but we’re personally still going to focus on praising people for making positive lifestyle changes, rather than shaming people based on how they look—and we hope you’ll do the same.
