Cousins True Thompson and Chicago West are all of us when it comes to snack time under the sun during their vacation in the Bahamas. On Monday, August 19, True’s mom, Khloé Kardashian, posted the cutest pics of the tots going in on some munchies — and although fans LOL’d at the photos, some people had a few choice words for Khloé’s caption on the pics of her daughter and niece.
“Chi: I heard my mama say, ‘Vacation calories don’t count’ True: Don’t tell me twice Chi,” wrote the blonde beauty, 35, of what she would image the pint-sized divas would be saying to each other. Despite the caption being in good fun, fans were quick to slam the famous family for introducing diet culture to their youngins.
“Hey not trying to be a bitch and I completely understand this is a joke, but even things said in passing can have massive effect on young minds,” one user wrote, and another follower commented, “Be careful what you’re teaching! Counting calories is rarely a healthy thing, if ever! ❤️” The comments continued to roll in, with one fan writing, “Are you introducing diet culture to your infant child? Don’t do that!” Another added: “Already teaching their kids to count calories.”
Although some fans were quick to condemn others for not having a sense of humor, few argued that the issues of body image are no laughing matter. “It clearly isn’t a joke. Khloé has been obsessed with her weight and body for a while know and meticulously counts calories but OK,” read one of many comments.
The toned babe has become known for her incredible weight loss journey but also her controversial diet endorsements — and back in March, Khloé was publicly called out by body-positive activist and The Good Life star Jameela Jamil . “If you’re too irresponsible to own up to the fact that you have a personal trainer, nutritionist, probable chef and a surgeon to achieve your aesthetic, rather than this laxative product … then I guess I have to,” Jameela, 33, wrote in the comments of one of Khloe’s Instagram posts promoting Flat Tummy Co. “It’s incredibly awful that this industry bullied you until you became this fixated on your appearance. That’s the media’s fault. But now please don’t put that back into the world, and hurt other girls, the way you have been hurt. You’re a smart woman. Be smarter than this.”
In June, Jameela exclusively told In Touch that Khloé and other celebs that promote weight loss products are setting an unrealistic beauty standard which could hurt the self esteem of impressionable children and their health. “It’s very irresponsible, and they’re being hospitalized now because these products are so dangerous. Nothing, no powder of the internet can detox you. Only your liver and your kidneys can detox you, and these kids don’t know any better because they’re not being taught how to counteract this assault in schools,” she explained. “Schools need to step up and teach kids social media literacy and teach them about the dangers of these pills because schools and government and media isn’t. I’m doing it.”
Although some people were amused while others were disturbed by the moms caption, it looks like she is still enjoying her family vacation with the adorable tots.
