Khloé Kardashian Says She’s Afraid to Post on Instagram Because of Photoshop Accusations

Over the years, just about every member of the Kardashian family has been called out for photoshopping pics on social media. For Khloé Kardashian, the internet’s obsession with spotting and calling out photo edits has left her anxious about posting on Instagram at all.

In a scene from Hulu’s The Kardashians, Khloé confesses to her photoshop callout fears during a chat with her BFF, Malika Haqq, about her anxiety over making an appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

“It’s never the interview, it’s more the aftermath,” she explains. “You have to listen to everybody say this, or judge you, or overanalyze something you say, or pick this apart.”

That constant judgment also applies to anything Khloé posts on social media, and she explains that fears over being accused of photoshop fails have left her with massive IG anxiety.

“Even when I barely did retouching, I’m so afraid to post it, because people are gonna say I did,” she says.

Khloé has been open about the fact that she loves “a good filter, good lighting and an edit here and there,” and that she likens those kinds of photo edits to wearing makeup or a confidence-boosting outfit in that she’s just trying to put the version of herself she wants seen out into the world (which, for the record, she also said she “will continue to do unapologetically”). She’s also been open about why she cares so much about controlling her public image and the role that years of being bombarded with criticism about her appearance has played in shaping her attitude on the subject.

“For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and imperfection has been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them everyday by the world,” she wrote in an Instagram post in April 2021, after she made headlines for working to scrub an unedited bikini picture of herself from the internet. “It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public have all set for me. And when I take that criticism to use as motivation to get myself in the best shape of my life and to even help others with the same struggles I am told that I couldn’t have done it all through hard work and I must have paid for it all.”

And if your gut reaction is that Khloé shouldn’t let trolls and haters get to her, she’d like the record to show that’s much easier said than done. In the Kardashians episode, she addresses that precise thing and says that, even though she tries not let mean comments get to her, she’s still deeply affected by them.

“It’s so deteriorating on your self-esteem, your confidence, the way that you view yourself. and even like anxiety to post photos on Instagram…I’m just anxious,” she explained.

FWIW, we’d like to go on the record to say that Khloé looks great, even when she goes #nofilter.
