Kim Kardashian is no stranger to being in the spotlight, and over the years she’s had all sorts of things said about her. But no matter how long you’ve been in the limelight, even Kim K can still get her feelings hurt but downright nasty headlines.
Overnight the Daily Mail wrote a story about one of Kim’s latest public appearances, drawing particular attention to her “bad skin day”.

“Make-up mogul Kim Kardashian suffers bad skin day ahead of Master Class beauty seminar” reads the publication’s Tweet.
Aside from making unnecessary commentary on her appearance – which is a seriously dickish move – the remainder of the headline can also be read to imply that Kim’s skin is particularly embarrassing given it happens days ahead of her beauty ‘Master Class’.
Cue: HUGE fucking eye roll.
We see what you’re doing there and no, we’re not here for it AT ALL.
Kim has since responded to the shitty Tweet, explaining that she actually suffers from a serious skin condition, psoriasis:
It’s psoriasis all over my face. ???? https://t.co/E94lI7mfDG

“It’s psoriasis all over my face” wrote Kim, followed by the teary-eyed emoji. Like, imagine having to even respond to shit like this? Can people just 1) stop being mean as heck and 2) do your fucking research before jumping to conclusions?
Kim’s skin condition ain’t a secret. In fact, the star has previously spoken candidly about her struggles with managing her condition.
Late last year Kim revealed that her psoriasis was the worse it has ever been, prompting her to consider taking medication to help alleviate the symptoms:
I think the time has come I start a medication for psoriasis. I’ve never seen it like this before and I can’t even cover it at this point. It’s taken over my body. Has anyone tried a medication for psoriasis & what kind works best? Need help ASAP!!!

“I think the time has come I start medication for psoriasis,” wrote Kim.
“I’ve never seen it like this before and I can’t even cover it at this point. It’s taken over my body. Has anyone tried a medication for psoriasis & what kind works best? Need help ASAP!!!”
Many fans have thanked Kim for her honesty on the particularly painful condition, so the tabloid’s commentary comes as a particularly low blow.
Props to Kim for setting them straight, even though she really shouldn’t have to deal with that sort of rubbish at all.Image: Getty Images / [Stefanie Keenan]
