Being a Kardashian isn’t all shining sunshine and snaps. Kim Kardashian has had her plenty of fights and savage clapbacks throughout the many years. In the past, from random twitter trolls, to celebrities like Drake as well as Taylor Swift, the reality celebrity isn’t shy when she has to take on those who hate her.
In actual fact, Kardashian lets criticism roll across her shoulders. “I used to look at everything and anything and have Google Alerts and just get so upset and go home and cry after something mean being said,” she stated at The Girls at the Lounge dinner in September of 2016. “And now there is nothing anybody can say that can even rattle me.”
She said: “It’s a little bit sad that that’s the time you live in that people can say the meanest, nastiest things and you can be OK with it.”
Kardashian has attributed her slender skin she attributes her tough skin to Kanye West’s impact on her. “My husband has definitely taught me to be my most authentic self and not care what other people think,” she wrote. “I think I was a people pleaser before.” (She was divorced of the rapper back in the month February, after 6 years together.)
Yet this time, the KKW Beauty founder finds pleasure in making light of the haters. She did this in September of 2018 when a follower posted on Twitter what her reaction was to Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy announcement. “I was so happy knowing i was having a baby too,” she said with reference to daughter Chicago who was born just weeks ahead of the birth of the Kylie Cosmetics CEO’s daughter, Stormi.
“You always find ways to make things about yourself,” one person wrote. Kardashian replied: “Always! It’s all about consistency.”
The Skims founder took her firm stand against critics one step more in February 2018 when she delivered Valentine’s Day gifts to some surprise recipients. “I decided, for this Valentine’s Day, everyone deserves a Valentine,” she posted in the Instagram Story. “So I’m going to send them to my love ones and to my enemies and to anyone else I can think of. It’s Valentine’s Day after all.”
The notable names of the people she gifted the Kimoji Hearts Bae perfume include Swift and Chloe Grace Moretz.
Despite her optimistic attitude, Kardashian confessed in June 2017 that trolls had an impact on her occasionally. “You post something and it’ll be a million amazing comments, and then it could be one or two negative comments that really do affect you and get to you,” she said at her participation in the Forbes Women’s Summit. “I’m human just like everyone else, things do hurt my feelings.”

Kardashian added, “Kanye has documented the creation of all his albums to his personal archives, however has never made any of the material to the public.

This is my last public appearance about this, because frankly there is no interest.”
