Kim Kardashian Is Being Dragged For “Boasting About Her Bone Density” In Her Latest Instagram Post



“So are we meant to be self conscious of .. bones now?”

Ever since the Met Gala in May, Kim Kardashian has faced repeated backlash for her “obsession” with her image, with people calling the star a “horrible role model” and accusing her of pushing a “dangerous” message to her impressionable fans.

It all started when she revealed that she’d lost an extreme amount of weight in a short period of time so that she could fit into Marilyn Monroe’s dress for the prestigious event.

On the red carpet, Kim detailed exactly how many pounds she’d lost and the measures that she took to get there after severely restricting her diet for almost a month.

Registered dietitian Elaina Efird also spoke to BuzzFeed about Kim’s drastic weight loss and told us that she was setting “a terrible example,” and that her words are “perpetuating eating disorders.”

During an appearance on the Today show in June, Kim again spoke openly about the extra weight she’d shifted since the gala, and insisted that it was a natural side effect from her continuing to eat “really healthy.”

People were disappointed that Kim was still discussing her weight loss and “boasting” about getting slimmer despite being called out for how damaging that could be just weeks earlier.

On social media, many critics pointed out that even if she had lost weight, it is irresponsible for her to publicly talk about it at such length considering her large platform.

Shortly afterward, Kim admitted that she cared so much about her looks that she would “eat poop every single day” if it helped her defy aging.

She doubled down on her bold claim in another interview, telling Allure at the time: “I really, genuinely care about looking good. I probably care more than 90% of the people on this planet.”

In the same chat, Kim sparked backlash when she insisted that her beauty standards are “attainable” for other people, without acknowledging her extreme wealth and privilege that gives her access to personal trainers, personal chefs, home gyms, and cosmetic procedures.

“If I’m doing it, it’s attainable,” she told the publication.

“Every time she tries to make herself seem relatable she just shows how completely delusional and out of touch she is. Fuck off already,” one person tweeted in response.

And in July, Kim was heavily criticized for being “obsessed” with her young children’s looks after she compared a heavily edited photo of her 4-year-old daughter, Chicago, with her supermodel sister, Kendall Jenner, 26.

“I saw this and was disgusted. Imagine your mother putting so much emphasis on your beauty as a TODDLER or young child,” someone commented at the time. Another added: “Oh my god. These poor kids. Can you imagine your own mother face tuning you to look more to her standard?”

Someone else simply wrote: “The way Kim is obsessed with her children’s looks.”

But Kim’s preoccupation with being perfect appeared to cross a line on Wednesday, when she posted to her Instagram story after undergoing a full scan that analyzed her body’s health.

Sharing a photo of the van where the mobile checkup took place, Kim wrote: “Look who pulled up. They measure your bone density & body fat percentage & all the good stuff to make sure you are fit and healthy.”

She then filmed the practitioner talking her through her results, and he said: “You have a 1.3 Z-score, you plug that into the table on the right hand side and that puts you in the 93 to 97 percentile.”

“So that means your bones are stronger than 93% of the population based on your age, gender, and ethnicity,” he concluded.

But the practitioner appeared to misspeak, as the 1.3 Z-score is actually in the 69th to 93rd percentile according to the table. Seemingly oblivious to the blunder, Kim was clearly thrilled by what he said.

“You hear that?!?!!!!” she wrote alongside the clip. “My bones [are] stronger than 93-97% of people.”

But rather than be impressed, people were baffled by Kim “bragging” about her bone density, and it didn’t take long for them to start roasting her for her comments online.

Discussing Kim’s post on a Reddit forum, one person wrote: “Boasting about her bone density is something I didn’t see coming even from Kim.”

“In what world does someone feel the need to brag about their bone density?” another asked. One more echoed: “Literally bragging about having stronger bones than people! I’m a known Kim apologist, but this is too weird.”

“So are we meant to be self conscious of .. bones now?” one user questioned. Someone else observed: “Bro she’s in constant competition with the whole world 😂.”

Some suggested that it was a sign that Kim is actually “insecure” and argued that it was her way of coping with getting older.

“Why is she always bragging ? She is the most insecure person alive because I literally do not give zero fucks if my bone density is better than 100% of people 🙄” a user wrote.

“It’s her sad way of [coping] with aging and becoming irrelevant and out of touch,” another replied. One more commented: “This is just so abnormal and sad.”

Someone else mimicked: “Omg you guys my bones are better than everyone’s bones like WHAT.” While one person asked: “Is she ok??? What is all of this nonsense???”

In another video from the scan’s results, Kim appeared to be pleased with herself as she told followers that she’d shed almost 7% from her total body fat percentage since last year’s checkup, and the practitioner said that her new percentage puts her in the “athlete’s category.”

And after months of the star being called out for her “triggering” comments about weight loss, people were hugely disappointed to see her sharing exact details of her weight and body fat — which BuzzFeed News obscured — once again.

“She definitely only posted this to subtly flex her body fat percentage,” one person wrote.

“Speaking as someone with an ED this is so triggering for some people..” another added. “Why would she include all her numbers like that?! yikes.”

“The body checking is getting really out of hand,” a third agreed.

And considering this is far from the first time that Kim has been called out for her behavior in recent months, I have a feeling that it is unlikely to stop any time soon.

Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell might be thousands of miles apart this Christmas, but they are still very much on each other’s minds.

The 31-year-old has been documenting his “wonderful trip to the shire” and couldn’t help but send girlfriend Dianne a hidden message.

LATEST: Why Dianne Buswell and Joe Sugg are celebrating Christmas apart

Whilst gushing about his stay “at the amazing Court Farm”, a lovingly restored 16th Century farmhouse in Somerset, Joe sent Dianne a décor hint, revealing: “I kinda want our house to look like this!

Joe has travelled to Somerset to see family and friends

The gorgeous bedroom, as shown in a photo posted on his Instagram Stories, boasts a superking bed under a vintage chandelier, with an authentic barn door which opens onto a bathroom with both a huge walk-in shower and contemporary roll top bath.

Joe also praised the log burner, keeping him warm during his stay. “You cannot beat a good log burner this time of year,” he wrote.

The couple fell in love whilst taking part on Strictly Come Dancing

The theme would no doubt work well in Joe and Dianne’s country home in Sussex. The couple met on Strictly in 2018 and swapped their London flat for their first home together complete with a beautiful garden boasting uninterrupted country views.

Joe went on to reveal to his followers that he was visiting Lacock, a village in the county of Wiltshire.

“Forever grateful for this beautiful village where I grew up,” he said.

He then visited The Lacock Bakery and showed its gorgeous window display, which featured a copy of his book, Grow: How Nature Can Restore Balance in a Busy World.

“I used to go to this bakery as a toddler in my pushchair and now look! I left a special message in this book,” he remarked.

A look inside ABC star David Muir’s intensely private personal life



Hannah Hargrave

ABC star David Muir has long kept fans guessing about his personal life, refusing to share details online or across social media sites like many of his colleagues. But fans do know that David is still on the market and he’s not married, although it remains unclear if he is even dating.

Exclusive: Amy Robach’s ‘deceptive’ interview with Andrew Shue and T.J. Holmes revealed

In fact, as the video below explains, despite being connected to several other high profile TV personalities, there’s only one certain someone who does take up David’s time…

Despite numerous reports of romance for the World News Tonight anchor, David has always refused to publicly address his love life, but has been vocal about a number of leading ladies who he holds dear to his heart.

Kelly Ripa is one of those special people, so much so that the Live with Kelly and Ryan star paid a heartfelt tribute to David in her book, Live Wire.

An extract from the book – which is released on 27 September – was posted on Kelly’s Instagram Stories over the weekend, and the message is included on a page of acknowledgements.

It read: “To David Muir, you are the backbone and moral compass I need sometimes.”

Kelly and David have been close friends for years

His fellow ABC star, Amy Robach, is also a firm favorite of David’s and they have been known to spend time together both on and off-screen.

His sister, Rebecca, is close with David and he calls his many nieces and nephews his “squad,” and says he’s incredibly proud of all of them.

At home, it’s his beloved gun dog, Axel, who has his heart, as he regularly shares adorable photos with the pup, who he is clearly besotted with. 

That’s not to say he hasn’t had his fair share of marriage proposals though! Not a day goes by when he isn’t flooded with compliments from his adoring fans on social media. 

But alas, the dedicated journalist is practically married to his job, leaving little time for love!

“Such a tremendous loss of an amazing talent that was able to capture and create a sound like no other,” replied one. A second wrote: “Rest in Peace. Love the music you shared with us. Prayers for his family.”

A third shared their condolences while also wishing Al a speedy recovery, writing: “Sad news – wonderful legacy. I hope you are continuing to feel better and stronger. @todayshow is not the same without you.”

It’s been a particularly hard time for Al over the past few weeks, as not only has he been recovering after having blood clots on his lungs, but he also faced the devastating news that his sister Patricia had passed away shortly after he was discharged from hospital.

The TV star, who has been a part of Today for over 25 years, was admitted to the hospital shortly after Thanksgiving due to blood clots and remained hospitalized for over two weeks.

Al, who has taken an absence from the show ever since, gave an update to viewers from home last week. “It has been a tough slog. I’m not going to lie. It has been the hardest one yet and I’ve had my share of surgeries.

He continued: “I have a lot of things and people to be thankful for. It gives you a profound sense of gratitude for this outpouring of prayers and thanks.”
