In the past, Kim Kardashian has come under fire for offensive comments made on a variety of subjects from homosexuality to race issues and although she’s put her foot in it one too many times, you’ve gotta give her props for at the very least being willing to apologise.
Her latest sorry speech is about comments she made back in July about body image where she bragged about being 119 pounds on her Instagram Story.
In the video, Kim’s fam are sitting around as they get ready for an event and one of them describes her as “anorexic.”
“I’m really concerned I don’t think you’re eating,” Kendall said, jokingly.
“What?! Thank you!” Kim squealed in response.
“I’ve never seen a human being look as good,” Khloé Kardashian added. “You are a walking FaceTune doll.”
Later in her videos, Kim bragged, “We’re back to talking about how skinny I am,” adding:“I’m not that skinny. I’m down to 119 pounds,” Kim said. “I will say when I take out my hair extensions I am less.”
“Your extensions, your ass, your tits, everything, they’re heavy because she’s fucking voluptuous, but she’s anorexic here [her waist] and her arms are like pin thin like my pinky,” Khloé continued to gush. “Kimberly, I can see through you. I’ve never seen a skinnier person in my life.”

Kim and her sisters immediately copped a whole lotta hate from social media for making light of anorexia.
Now, Kardashian has featured on plus-size model Ashley Graham’s podcast Pretty Big Deal where she apologises for the controversial remarks, admitting that they were “insensitive”.
“I 100 percent completely understand where people would be coming from that felt that way,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said. “My intention is never to offend anyone and I really apologise if I offended anyone.”
The 37-year-old went on to acknowledge that her comments could be potentially damaging to people suffering with an eating disorder.
“I know people that have serious eating disorders that have been in and out of the hospital for 15 years, close people,” she said. “So, I’ve been through, I’ve experienced it enough to have known better.”
