The backlash against The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian’s recent Allure interview has continued with the interviewer reposting a story on Instagram calling her entitled. Kim is the cover star for Allure’s August issue, and while the business mogul looked flawless in the ethereal photos, it was her interview claims that stirred the pot with the public. Kim, who recently released her first skincare brand SKKN, told the interviewer that she had no fillers in her face and only a slight amount of botox. The reality TV star continued that never in 41 years had she put any filler into her cheeks or lips.
The Kardashians star’s fans called her bluff immediately. They started comparing her current appearance to what she looked like back in 2007 when Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered and launched her into worldwide fame. They felt it was obvious she has had a lot of work done, including but not limited to, lip fillers, cheek fillers, and eyelash extensions, which she also claimed not to have in the interview. Not long after, a beauty critic named Jessica Defino posted a lengthy Twitter thread alleging she had proof Kim got face fillers and explained why the star’s lies are so damaging to young women.
Now the interviewer is speaking out by re-sharing an Instagram story that calls Kim out on her lies. The interviewer Danielle Pergament is currently private on Instagram, but her recent story was posted on Reddit by ok1314141414. “The Allure interviewer reposts anti-kim story (as she should),” the fan wrote. The story she re-shared was posted by Instagram user @charmifox. The self-proclaimed “beauty fanatic” questioned why anyone would still be a fan of Kim after the Allure interview. She praised Danielle’s work saying that she “shows us how out of touch and how entitled Kim is about her challenges, her relation to other people, and whether or not she should lead with honesty.”
Danielle did not add any comments of her own but simply re-shared the post on her story, letting it speak for itself. Throughout the interview, Danielle made some snide comments and seemingly had some eye-roll moments around The Kardashians star Kim’s entitlement and privilege. Her opinion on Kim seemed to come through in the interview, and it certainly wasn’t a positive one. Danielle even pushed Kim to tell the truth after her claims of having no filler or eyelash extensions, but Kim stuck to her story and didn’t budge. Fans in the Reddit thread were happy to see the interviewer call Kim out and agreed with what the original post said. User Beneficial-Address61 wrote, “Not just tone-deaf, condescending as well.”
If Kim was trying to sell more skincare products by making it seem like it’s her skincare routine, not fillers that give her her flawless complexion, it definitely backfired on her. Kim has been caught in so many lies lately that it’s a wonder how she has any fans left at all. It’s important to note that the mother of four is not entirely guilty here. She’s a victim of society’s dangerous beauty standards as well, and it shows in all the ways she’s altered her appearance throughout her career. However, with such a large platform, she needs to take responsibility and be cautious of what she does and says when the world, including many young women, is watching. Sadly, backlash has never made The Kardashians star own up to her mistakes in the past, and a carefully crafted response overseen by momager Kris Jenner should be coming out shortly.
