Khloe Kardashian responds to an internet troll who commented about her appearance in a migraine commercial
Say what you want about the Kardashians, but one thing that’s true is that those women are constantly on the receiving end of some seriously cruel internet commentary. Khloe Kardashian, who is body-shamed all the time online, was scrutinized — again — but this time while appearing in a migraine commercial. Poor Khlo can’t even catch a break when she’s in migraine medication ads and responded to a Twitter troll who said she looked too much like an “alien” to represent the pharmaceutical company.
@KhloeKardashian has big news for people with migraine! For acute treatment of migraine and preventive treatment of episodic migraine in adults. Don't take if allergic to Nurtec ODT. Most common side effects were nausea and stomach pain/indigestion. PI: https://t.co/wZDdZ9yfXi

Khloe has struggled with migraines for most of her life, telling Prevention in 2020 that the pain she experiences from migraines is “completely unbearable.” Because of this, she is currently the face and spokesperson for a new migraine medication called Nurtec and appears in the ads for the brand. Now imagine Khloe’s surprise when she’s attacked by a Twitter troll who decided that she didn’t like Khloe’s face when she’s advertising migraine meds.
“Does research indicate that the more plastic surgery someone has the more likely they are to suffer from migraines?” the Twitter commenter wrote. “What kind of pharmaceutical company chooses someone who has had so much plastic surgery they look like an alien, as their spokesperson?”

Khloe, who didn’t have to be as kind to the troll as she did, responded by writing: “Sorry you feel that way. You have every right to block/mute me. I am trying to help many out there who suffer in silence.”

Khloe added that the woman — whose Twitter bio ironically says she’s a “feminist,” by the way — is “completely entitled to your opinions. Just as I am mine,” while adding “I don’t think you should refer to yourself as a feminist if you are attacking a woman unprovoked.”
Sadly, this comment comes in the wake of the recent photoshopped photo saga wherein a very good bikini photo of Khloe surfaced online and was immediately scrubbed from the internet by the Kardashians. The internet was shocked because Khloe looked great in the photo and nobody could understand why it needed to be removed so quickly and with such intensity (Kim Kardashian reportedly sent people “cease and desist” notices). By way of explaining, Khloe simply stated that she didn’t like the photo and wanted it off the internet, and fair enough.
“The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting of doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point — and then shares to the world — you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared,” she wrote at the time. “Regardless of who you are.”
It’s almost like someone might feel compelled to get plastic surgery because they are forced to endure constant internet chatter about how people don’t like the way they look. It’s almost like it’s a vicious circle, huh?
