Why Kardashian Fans Think Kim and Khloé Retired Their BBLs
The Kardashians are no strangers to plastic surgery, and fans believe some photos reveal Kim and Khloé Kardashian having their BBLs removed.
Kim and Khloé Kardashian may have removed some of their most famous body parts, as fans think The Kardashians the stars released their BBLs. Over the years, reality TV stars have had all kinds of plastic surgery accusations thrown at them. From nose job rumors to lip injection gossip, the Kar-Jenners have heard it all. However, the most consistent (and seemingly accurate) rumor was about BBLs. BBL stands for Brazilian Butt Lift, a procedure that takes fat from one part of the body and injects it into the buttocks to make them bigger. The BBL procedure, which many Kar-Jenners appear to have undergone, was first performed by Brazilian plastic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy in 1960.
The Kardashians Stars have been perfecting their curvy figures since they first burst into the limelight, with Kendall and others apparently promoting dangerous beauty standards. On the first episode of keeping up with the Kardashians, Kris Jenner makes a joke about the size of Kim’s butt, as her daughter leans forward, looking inside her fridge. Reality TV stars have continued to show off their figures by wearing tight clothes and flaunting their curvy butts in photoshoots, like Kim’s infamous 2014 paper magazines cover. Not only does this add to the endless list of ways the Kar-Jenners promote unattainable beauty standards, but it raises accusations that they are culturally appropriating a body type that is natural for Black and Latina women.
Fans think Kim and Khloé deleted BBLs
After years of showing off their “natural” bottoms, The Kardashians the stars seem to have retired their BBLs. Fans shared evidence on social media, with the Twitter user @takeyourrezoloft sharing a photo of Khloé with a much smaller behind, and captioned it, “And just like that…the BBL was gone.“Fans believe that Kim and Khloé’s appearance has changed, mainly because they no longer have serious relationships with black men. Fans have also noticed that Kim’s buttocks have also appeared much smaller, especially since that she divorced Kanye West and started dating. Saturday Night Live star, Pete Davidson.
The Kardashians fans also pointed out that the sisters have both bleached their hair and stopped coloring their skin. They attribute the change not just to their breakups, but to the rise of Y2K trends. In the early 2000s, beauty standards were very different, with society idealizing slim figures and blonde hair, originally popularized by simple life stars Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. They apparently used their black partners and bi-racial children as an excuse to appropriate the culture. Reddit user u/chihauzumaki pointed out that now that Khloé is no longer with Tristan Thompson and Kim is with Pete instead of Kanye, the sisters are ready to start acting like “white women“again. They wrote, “Isn’t it ironic that Kim is going back to being a white girl now that she’s dating a white man and the 2000s are slowly coming back.”
It’s hard to ignore the drastic changes in Kim and Khloé’s appearances. Although they will likely continue to deny all accusations, fans seem to be on top of them, as usual. Although they mean no harm and have every right to do whatever they want with their bodies, it certainly seems inauthentic, which fans called The Kardashians season 2. Fans feel like they’re throwing away a body part they stole from women of color because they don’t think it’s fashionable anymore. It’s hard to ignore appropriation, especially when they’ve done it so many times before. Hopefully Kim and Khloé have planned a good PR response, because The Kardashians fan theories are probably not going to die down any time soon.
