Another day, another Kardashian feud.
As seen on Instagram Story, on Sunday, Kim Kardashian attended a charity poker tournament where sisters Kendall Jenner and Khloé Kardashian complimented her “so skinny” frame. The mother-of-three even bragged that she was “down to 119 lbs.”
Unfortunately, these comments did not sit well with actresses including Emmy Rossum and Stephanie Beatriz!
On her Insta Story, the Shameless actress recalled a time when she was “119 pounds” because of an illness. She said:
“The only time I was 119 pounds is when I had MONO. On a magazine shoot and everyone was ‘freaking out over how good’ I looked… I had lost ten pounds and was gaunt and sick and felt faint … It totally messed with my head.”
The 31-year-old also had a message for anyone who struggles with body image issues:
“You never know what someone is going through. If you’re having a tough time with body image, I promise you’re beautiful and this feeling will pass… Today is just a moment. Practice some self-care and reboot. Take a bath. Take a walk. Take a yoga class. Make a healthy nutritious meal and watch your favorite funny movie. Tomorrow is another day.”
On Wednesday, Rossum clarified her comments on Twitter, saying one’s weight “is between them and their health professionals.” She simply took issue with Kardashian “praising… anorexia.”
To be clear, someone’s weight is between them and their health professionals. I have no opinion on this. My opinion is only on the danger of praising —even in jest — anorexia. Xo

Emmy also reposted Insta Stories from Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Beatriz, who shared her own experience with eating disorders, revealing:
“Kim Kardashian saying what she weighs and her sisters complimenting her being so skinny is like eating my brain rn… There’s only one time in my life when I ever weighed 119 pounds. It was right in the middle of a terrible relationship, and intense eating disorder, and I thought that I could be thinner and look even better. Everyone kept complimenting me on how I looked, and I felt desperate to stay at that weight. It sucked.”
Additionally, both Rossum and Beatriz reposted an Instagram from The Good Place star Jameela Jamil, who started a body-positive social media account after taking issue with Kim promoting appetite-suppressing lollipops.
