Lili Reinhart Slams Kim Kardashian Over Met Gala Diet: 'Other-Worldly Disgusting'
Lili Reinhart continues to remain vocal about body image and issues surrounding it. She recently called out Kim Kardashian after the reality star talked about the diet she followed in preparation for the Met Gala on Monday.
Page Six reported that the 25-year-old actress took her thoughts to Instagram and slammed the SKIMS founder. She even stated in one of her “stories” on the platform that “the ignorance is other-worldly disgusting,” considering that “millions of young men and women are looking up to” Kardashian.
The “Riverdale” actress, also, stated that it is “so wrong” and “so f**ked on 100s of levels” for a celebrity to “walk on a red carpet and do an interview where you say how starving you are… because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month… all to fit in a f**king dress.”
Lili Reinhart did not name Kim Kardashian, though, in her posts on Instagram. But, reports seemingly arrived at the conclusion that she was referring to the reality star because of the interview she did the day before, wherein she talked about losing 16 lbs. in three weeks.
Speaking to Vogue, the KKW Beauty founder revealed that the iconic dress did not fit her during the initial fitting. So, in order to squeeze into the piece, she decided to go on a “strict diet.”
Kardashian pointed out, however, that she did not starve herself. Apart from cutting out all sugar and carbs and eating only the “cleanest veggies and protein,” she, also, wore a “sauna suit twice a day” and “ran on the treadmill.”
Following Lili Reinhart’s posts on Instagram, several netizens appeared to have praised her for speaking up and slamming Kim Kardashian. In a recent Reddit thread, Redditors shared their thoughts and comments about the matter, with the majority applauding the actress.
Many individuals, also, pointed out that it was “good” for the 25-year-old celebrity to “straight up” call the reality star for her “toxic” and “unhealthy” ways. Others, meanwhile, chimed in to criticize the SKIMS founder further, saying she did not stand out at all at the Met Gala.
Lili Reinhart has been very vocal about body positivity, as well as her issues about body image. Back in March, she called out the apparent “toxic” body trends ahead of the summer season, according to E! News.
On Twitter, the “Hustlers” actress shared a heartfelt message to serve as a “reminder” to herself and everyone.
She said they “don’t need a flat or perfectly toned stomach to wear a crop top.” She consequently asserted that “these ‘summer body’ trends are toxic,” adding that anyone’s body “is ready for summer no matter what it looks like.”
