Khloé Kardashian instantly went viral back in May when she uploaded a jaw-dropping set of pics to Instagram, looking VERY different than we’ve been accustomed to seeing her.
A fierce debate quickly ensued over whether or not the reality TV starlet had gotten plastic surgery, or used filters or a face editing tool in the shots (as seen above, left), which she ultimately let roll right off her shoulder.
However, on Thursday night, the hot topic started trending once again after a new Keeping Up With the Kardashians clip seemed to answer everyone’s questions and show what KoKo really looks like without any help from an app!
First, get another good look at the image that was intentionally shared to “get under bitches skin” (below):
Got that engrained in your memory? Good. Now, ch-ch-check out this video, paying extra attention to when Khloé appears on screen at the one-minute mark:
The Good American founder can be seen wearing the exact same outfit, hairstyle, and makeup during a confessional recorded while she and her family were enjoying a getaway in Palm Springs together. The same outing that birthed yet another iconic KarJenner moment is the gift that keeps on giving because it provided fans with receipts that True Thompson‘s momma definitely edited her pic for the ‘gram. It’s hard to deny that when you see the side-by-side we’ve pulled for you up top, isn’t it?
Crazzzzy! Now, let’s check in with the peanut gallery…
If you were expecting the internet to drag Kris Jenner‘s daughter for this photoshop fail, nine times out of ten, you’d be right. One Twitter user shared their own comparison of the shots along with a bit of shade, captioning it, “khloe… girl…” which instantly drew a lot of the same attention and wisecracks we heard the first time around:

We’re pleasantly surprised to see that this time, many fans reacted with messages of support for the 36-year-old, saying she shouldn’t be messing with all these filters because she looks beautiful without any alteration! Couldn’t agree more, if we’re being honest here. Several social media users left comments like these:
“She looks so hot in the second one anyway. I don’t know why she would photoshop herself so much”
“she looks perfectly fine in the right one too”
“I wish the internet would stop bashing women. Women are made to feel ugly, so we get surgery and use filters. Then we are made to feel guilty and embarrassed for changing our bodies and looking different in photos. And none of it makes sense.”
“Remember how mean everyone was to Khloe when she looked… like her original self? Calling her tr*nny? And “Klozilla”? Or, before they were super famous & when people would still mix the girls up, “the ugly Kardashian”? Everyone just imagine if that was you for one second.”
Khloé was not above all criticism though, as a different fan argued their right to call her out for the editing:
“People here are saying we are bullying her, but that’s not it. We’re just pointing out how ridiculous it is that she doesn’t even look like the same person between the photos. Her whole family is cultivating this norm that natural photos are unacceptable and it’s not ok”
Fair point! At the end of the day, the Kardashians have influence far and wide and it is disappointing when they choose to project certain ideals to their millions of followers. And if young girls look at their own untouched selfies as unacceptable, that’s, well, NOT ACCEPTABLE.
But ultimately, fans seem united in their concern for the reality star’s sense of self-worth and we just want to reiterate something if it hasn’t been made clear already: makeup and switching up your appearance is one thing, but gurl, you do NOT need to go that extra mile and DIGITALLY REPLACE YOURSELF when you’re already naturally beautiful!
