Kim Kardashian Says Getting Shamed Online Gave Her Body Dysmorphia

The reality TV star is opening up about her insecurities.

We may have underestimated just how much that bikini pic controversy from earlier this year got under Kim Kardashian's skin.

On last night's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim learns about the paparazzi bikini shots that later resulted in her getting body shamed online and is clearly distraught, the Daily News reports.

"You take pictures and people just body shame you," Kim said.

"It's like literally giving me body dysmorphia," she continued. "Like, I'm so insecure, I just can't take it."

Body dysmorphia disorder causes the sufferer to have a skewed view of how they really look to others and is accompanied by an obsession with their physical appearance. Kim didn't mention anything about being officially diagnosed so it's likely that she was simply being hyperbolic. That being said, the constant body shaming clearly had a huge affect on Kim, who was so bothered by the bikini pics that she declined Kourtney's offer to go jet-skiing.

"I can't have fun after seeing those pics, there's other pics where I look so good and it's just from a different angle," she said

Kim did eventually fire back at all the criticism she was dealt during her vacation, writing on Twitter, "Oh and as for me you ask? ...I'm just sitting here on the beach with my flawless body."

That's the spirit, Kim!
