An unretouched photo of Khloe Kardashian standing by the pool was leaked online. Internet users on Reddit and Twitter rushed to comment that Kardashian seems unrecognizable in this photo. Most of Khloe’s photos or videos that appear in the press, on websites, and on social networks are embellished with special gadgets, making the unretouched photo really different from the others.
The leak of the photo sparked talk of the artificial image of the Kardashian family and the ever-increasing standards of perfect appearance, which the family members themselves fail to follow when retouching their photos.
Khloe Kardashian and her mother, Kriss Jenner, caused a real storm and set out to find ways to remove the image from the internet as soon as possible. Photo-sharing web portals and individuals from the Kardashian family received warnings of a distribution rights violation with an order to remove the photo.
A spokesman for the Kardashian trademark group reported that an unretouched photo (with a color filter) was taken at a private family gathering at Kriss Jenner’s home and one of the assistants mistakenly uploaded it to the social network without family consent.
It later emerged that Khloe, wearing a leopard print bikini, was photographed by her 86-year-old grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Shannon, but Khloe’s working team made the photo public due to non-communication.
In response to the hunt for this unretouched photo, Khloe shared footage on her Instagram profile showing her body shapes not embellished with filters.
