Kim Kardashian got roasted earlier this week on the internet for posting barely-there photos of herself on her 350-million-follower Instagram account. Kardashian’s age perceived desperation, and pose all got hammered in the comments section.
“40 going on 21…grow up. Literally,” one comment said.
“Duck lip poses are sooooo 2012,” said another. They might as well have added that the so-called “duck lip” pose has never been attractive.
“Anything to stay semi relevant right?” observed a third, perhaps identifying the real reason why the photo emerged.
“Hay is for horses and America is ready for you to ride off on one!” quipped one person in reference to the single-word caption she offered along with the photo.

For someone whose career began in front of a camera and has remained that way ever since other comments pointed out that Kardashian failed to consider the obvious shadows, her selfie would impose. A quick glance at the image reveals stark contrasts in color upon her chest.
“Looks good but you have a shadow on your chest from your phone. FYI,” another comment said.
It isn’t just the online comment sections that Kardashian has been hammered with lately. The American Tribune recently reported that the FBI has apparently been keeping close tabs on her for a relationship with a disgraced hedge fund manager who fled to China to evade authorities after stealing clients’ money.
The American Tribune wrote:
Billionaire reality star and social media influencer Kim Kardashian is finding herself in the crosshairs of a major FBI investigation as federal authorities are tracking down the lead perpetrator of a massive foreign fraud scandal. Kardashian reportedly accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash from Jho Low, who is now hiding in communist China.
Whether knowingly or unknowingly, Kardashian’s ties to Low date back to at least 2009 when the two paired up in Las Vegas for a red carpet event in which the Malaysian fund manager paid her $50,000. He would later reportedly gift her hundreds of thousands of dollars with which to gamble, and she apparently took a flight home to Los Angeles with more than $250,000 in cash in her carry-on bag.
And Kardashian is certainly no stranger to heckling from internet trolls.
Earlier this winter, she was invited to Harvard to lecture on the direct-to-consumer business model, which is ridiculous on a lot of levels. More than anything, it seems almost certain she does not handle anything related to her business other than selling her image and likeness. Being pretty and popular doesn’t make you good at anything. Imagine paying hundreds of thousands of dollars and thinking you got value by listening to Kim Kardashian speak.
Kardashian also found out that her own L.A. community doesn’t particularly care for her. At an NFL game last fall, she was shown on the big screen at an NFL game and quickly received a chorus of boos.
Music to our ears.
