Kendall Jenner Responds to Comments Claiming She Looks Pregnant
When are these comments about women's bodies going to stop, already?
No, there isn't a fourth Kardashian-Jenner pregnancy.
Believe it or not, Kendall Jenner was forced to call out body-shamers after people began scrutinizing her body in a picture she posted on Instagram over the holiday weekend. (Enough already! PSA: Why We've Changed the Way We Talk About Women's Bodies)
Shortly after posting the photo, hundreds of people began asking the model if she was pregnant and made comments about her weight. "Is that a baby bump I see…" one user wrote. "Omg is she pregnant?" said another.
While Kendall remained silent for most of the day, she decided to speak up after a news story broke that shared the photo and spread the rumor about her pregnancy speculation from fans. Kendall shared the article on Twitter and responded in true Kendall fashion by saying: "I just like bagels ok!!!" (Related: Miley Cyrus Addressed Pregnancy Rumors In the Best Way Possible)
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time someone from the Kardashian-Jenner clan has been subjected to these kinds of body-shaming comments. Khloé Kardashian recently clapped back at trolls after they body-shamed her for wearing baggy clothes. And Kylie Jenner was also forced to take to Twitter after paparazzi posted "altered" images of her, speculating her pregnancy-which BTW, still hasn't been confirmed.
While swirling rumors are probably part of the territory for Kendall by now, particularly because many of her sisters are expecting a child right now, let's make it clear, yet again, that it's never OK to comment on someone else's body. Here's to hoping that 2018 will (finally!) be the year that people start respecting that.
