Kim Kardashian talks about online bullying and why it bothers her


It’s no secret that not everyone loves the Kardashians but some people go to great lengths to let Kim and her family know how much they are hated and recently she admitted that it does hurt her feelings.

Kim Kardashian has more than 100 million followers on Instagram, making her one of the most popular celebrities on social media. But with all the love comes plenty of hate too and sometimes the negativity aimed at Kim and the rest of her famous family crosses major lines.

Every time Kim Kardashian posts a picture of herself or her family online, she receives a lot of feedback. While some of it is good, with fans responding positively to the photos, there is a good deal of negativity that shows up in the comments every time a picture is posted.

The amount of trolling that Kim and the rest of the KUWTK crew endure became the most obvious after Kim’s Paris robbery. She was accused of faking the jewelry heist for ratings among other shots taken after learning about the theft. Even when it was most evident that Kim K. really did endure a real life robbery and she really did think she was going to be raped or die, those who don’t like the Kardashians for whatever reason continued to say horrible things about Kim that crossed several lines.

Kim Kardashian recently spoke at the Forbes Women’s Summit and the AP reported that she was asked about how the negativity on social media affects her. “Absolutely it affects me… there could be one or two negative comments that really do affect you, and get to you,” Kim said. “You know I’m human just like everyone else. Like things do hurt my feelings, but I think that I do have a really thick skin.”

“They have this keyboard courage that no one will see them and they will just write whatever and hurt your feelings,” she continued. “I know I can handle it, but I just fear for — I do see why young kids and people and teenagers, even get … so hurt and bothered. That is what really bothers me.”

It just goes to show you that even when you’re popular, rich, and successful like Kim Kardashian, you’re still not immune to internet bullying. Even Kim admitted that some of the negative comments really do hurt.
