Kourtney Kardashian Claps Back at a Fan Who Says She Has a ‘Pregnant Belly’

Quick reminder: It’s rude to assume someone is pregnant based on their body shape. And this applies to celebrities on Instagram too. Case in point: Kourtney Kardashian just had to (yet again) correct a commenter who took it upon themself to speculate that a simple bikini picture was also a pregnancy announcement. So tiresome!

On Tuesday, November 30, the Poosh founder posted a series of pictures to Instagram of herself taking a sunset pool dip with her daughter, Penelope. (Kourt was wearing a purple Skims x Fendi bikini!) Nothing to see here, right? Well, one commenter chimed in with, “Not to be that girl but… is that a preg belly,” according to People. Kardashian wrote back, “Are we really gonna do this every time I post a photo?” Great question.

Just because a woman is engaged and has a body made of normal flesh doesn’t mean she’s merely a vehicle to bring a baby into the world (ahem, Supreme Court)! If and when she and Travis Barker decide to have a child together, Kourtney Kardashian will tell the world in the way and at the time she wants to. Until then, maybe don’t comment on people’s bodies. Actually, don’t comment on people’s bodies even after a pregnancy reveal. It’s simply not necessary. Let’s all just make a pact right here and now to stop commenting on people’s bodies in any context. It’s incredibly damaging, especially to women. As journalist Michelle Konstantinovsky wrote for Glamour, “For anyone who’s ever struggled with their weight or body image in any way (which is very likely the majority of human beings), commentary of any kind is, at the end of the day, not helpful.”

“I have given birth three amazing times and this is the shape of my body,” Kardashian wrote in May 2020 when another Instagram post sparked another round of pregnancy rumors. “This is me when I have a few extra pounds on, and I actually love it.”  And that is that on that.
