Trolls are everywhere on the internet and they don’t stop with their game for anyone. In a recent bikini-focusing snap shared by Kim Kardashian, the reality TV show star was body-shamed; people started criticizing her… toes? That’s awful, people actually started bullying her for not having the best feet, despite that part of the image she posted being blurry.
Kim Kardashian posted the picture from her trip to Turks and Caicos, giving a shout out to her trainer Melissa Alcantara. The picture shows her toe in the background which people zoomed in on, cropped, and started with their antics of grilling a media personality. The mother-of-three was celebrating her fit body, thanking her trainer for helping her achieve it.
Shout out to my trainer @fitgurlmel who really changed my body. When I wasn’t happy w what I saw back in the mirror I spent a whole year training so hard 5 or 6 days a week & changed the way I eat! SO THANK U for waking up at 5am to do crazy body building workouts pic.twitter.com/SnteVQiONT

The pic’s caption read, “Shout out to my trainer @fitgurlmel who really changed my body. When I wasn’t happy with what I saw back in the mirror I spent a whole year training so hard 5 or 6 days a week putting in a lot of work and changed the way that I eat and there’s such a noticeable difference. I am firm and less cellulite and so much more confident.”
But most people were less concerned about how hard she had worked to maintain her fit physique. Neither was their focus on how gorgeous she is or any of her praiseworthy physical attributes. Their attention was directed towards the her toenail which they thought looked gross because of how long and yellow it seemed.
Omg🤣🤣🤣🤣she has all the money in the world but can’t get a pedicure

Instead of letting the woman live and feel happy about how she looks, people criticized her. One even compared her toenail to popcorn kernel and while other said it looked like gangrene. A twitter user commented, “I love u but is that ur toenail??” He further added, “im sorry, is that yellowwww???” That, of course, was like a match that immediately ignited all the trolls who were waiting quietly in the shadows.
People started commenting how they were thinking the same thing, with another person saying, “I’m glad someone mentioned the elephant in the room because I was thinking the same thing.” “Omg she has all the money in the world but can’t get a pedicure,” read another tweet. Several people chimed in and criticized Kim K’s toenail.
However, a few did speak in her favor. One fan wrote, “Why are you zooming in on her body, even her toes? She’s flawless. I find that weird that you people would look that hard for something to nitpick. Kim Kardashian is stunning!” The 37-year-old businesswoman who also happens to be the queen of clapping back at haters, didn’t say a word.
She just posted a picture of her pedicured toenails with neon yellow nail polish painted on them. A quiet way of showing the trolls that their observations were incorrect. But that didn’t stop them either. Hateful comments continued coming in. One person commented on her Instagram post saying, “Kim your toes are thick and round please delete this photo.”
Another comment read, “beautiful in the face but the toes are not that nice.” “Ain’t yellow, just an extra popcorn kernel that fell while she was snacking earlier,” read yet another comment. Since this episode, the makeup mogul has been posting images that show her finely cleaned and polished feet. Here’s to hoping people learn that they themselves are also far from perfect. Nitpicking flaws, existent or non-existent ones, is beyond rude.
