Kim Kardashian Apparently Hates Her Butt

Kim Kardashian apparently is no longer into her backside, per People.

According to the publication, on the most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the family got into a discussion about Kim's "big butt."

While lounging outside, Kourtney told Kim that "when you sit down, your butt looks so huge"—a comment that Kris Jenner deemed not "very nice." Kourtney responded by saying that Kim "likes having a big butt," so she's "not saying anything offensive.” 

Kim's response? “No, I don’t! I cry about it on the daily.” And it's this claim that's giving the internet some pause. 

After all, Kim has faced ample critique for the way society has lauded her wholehearted embrace of aesthetics and physical features typically associated with black women, with one of the biggest debates occurring over her "big butt." It's been argued that as a non-black woman, Kim is able to pick and choose what attributes of blackness she wants, all whilst being commended for it. On the other hand, black women are often penalized or made—as Blue Telusma noted in her 2014 Ms. Magazine article—the "butt" of racialized jokes for possessing the very same things. 

As such, Kim's assertion that she doesn't like her butt is being scrutinized-at-large, with many commenters expressing their distaste for what appears to be her sudden flip-flop in demeanor. See some of their responses, below.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
