Khloe Kardashian’s bikini pics have gone viral – but not for the reason she wants them to…
According to reports, the reality star was left with egg on her face after an unauthorised and unedited picture of her in swimwear was uploaded on social media.
Her representatives worked quickly to remove the pic off the platforms, but it was too late for the Good American co-founder, as the image had already found itself circulating on the Internet.
In the pic, Khloe is pictured posing in an animal print, showing off her famous – and perfectly imperfect – curves. In the past, the mom of one has been heavily criticised for Photoshopping her images of not just her body, but face too.

But whilst Khloe was unhappy with the unfiltered picture being posted, many fans found it refreshing to see
“Khloe Kardashian looks fine in that unedited bikini pic. It must be exhausting trying to portray perfection for social media”, claimed one fan, whilst another added; “She actually looks great and like a real woman”.
Others called on he star to ’embrace’ her ‘imperfections’ like cellulite, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.
Here’s what tweeps had to say about the ‘bikini-gate’…

It actually makes me so sad to see the lengths Khloe Kardashian is going to remove that un-edited bikini pic. She actually looks great and like a real woman and I’m sure everyone would relate to her so much more if she stopped the editing and was real about how she looks

That picture Khloe Kardashian wants removed from the internet is the best pic I’ve seen of her in ages. She looks young and good. I really wish she could see that she looks wayyy better without all that photoshop.

Khloe Kardashian looks SO GOOD and NORMAL in this picture it’s so awful that social media and people have made her feel the way she does when she looks so much better AND younger without all the filters and photoshop https://t.co/OZis1NU2HB

I think the unedited bikini picture of Khloe Kardashian was beautiful and her body is so fit. It’s sad she (her family / team) felt compelled to cause a whole quarrel.

it’s sad that Khloe Kardashian’s team scrambled to take down the bikini pic of her that wasnt airbrushed / filtered .
a woman’s body is allowed to have cellulite / stretch marks etc + their still beautiful . she should be embracing it + not hiding it

Meanwhile a Kardashian spokesperson said that Khloe is “within her right” to want the image removed
Chief marketing officer for KKW Brands Tracy Romulus told Page Six; “The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant.
