Kim Kardashian is still suffering the fallout from her Instagram stories where she was soooooo happy that her sisters compared her body to that of an anorexic person. Currently, she is being dragged by a few Hollywood actresses for her tacky obsession with being 119 pounds and I am chomping down on popcorn watching it happen.
People is reporting that Emmy Rossum took to Instagram to post a story of her own but this one had a much more body-positive message than Kim’s did. Emmy wrote:
“The only time I was 119 pounds is when I had MONO. On a magazine shoot and everyone was ‘freaking out over how good’ I looked. …I had lost ten pounds and was gaunt and sick and felt faint … It totally messed with my head.”
OMG Emmy where have you been hiding this hot tip? Kim is totally going to try the MONO diet immediately! I see her now: “Kim you look very sick and frail.” “Oh my god the compliments!” Emmy continued:
“You never know what someone is going through. If you’re having a tough time with body image, I promise you’re beautiful and this feeling will pass. …Today is just a moment. Practice some self-care and reboot. Take a bath. Take a walk. Take a yoga class. Make a healthy nutritious meal and watch your favorite funny movie. Tomorrow is another day.”
Emmy I appreciate your effort girl, but trying to kombat Kim’s kapitalist kontrol over the aesthetic influence of our youth with rational words of self-love is like trying to fight a blazing apartment fire with a half-empty squirt gun. Emmy then went on Twitter because after saying people should love themselves they accused her of body-shaming Kim:
To be clear, someone’s weight is between them and their health professionals. I have no opinion on this. My opinion is only on the danger of praising —even in jest — anorexia. Xo

Emmy also decided to make this a tag-team match and co-signed a bunch of Instagram stories posted by Stephanie Beatriz of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Stephanie wrote:
“Kim Kardashian saying what she weighs and her sisters complimenting her being so skinny is like eating my brain rn,… There’s only one time in my life when I ever weighed 119 pounds. It was right in the middle of a terrible relationship, and intense eating disorder, and I thought that I could be thinner and look even better. Everyone kept complimenting me on how I looked, and I felt desperate to stay at that weight. It sucked.”
And then both Stephanie and Emmy turned this into a three-on-one THROWDOWN when they reposted an Instagram post from The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil:
Come on Jameela: Kim does not even know who two out of those three people are, and she only knows who Rosa Parks is because Kim Googled “Relevant Black People” when she got engaged to Kanye West.
Kim got a lot of attention for this “anorexic” bit and she’s also getting a lot of attention for saying that Kourtney is the least exciting Kartrashian to look at. So I’m sure Kris Jenner is going to join those two moments together for maximum attention and has told her script writers to work on a scene where Kim shouts at Kourtney, “Not only are you boring looking, but you’re obese too!
