Kim Kardashian is getting some heat from Twitter over her 2019 Christmas card. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star posted her annual family Christmas card to Instagram this weekend.
There was no tree in sight, but the KKW Beauty’s family was all there. The photo showed a pared-down Kardashian-West family all posing in gray or white sweats on a simple staircase. Kim and husband Kanye West were seen with their four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
Kanye held 2018-born Chicago, while Kim held 2019-born Psalm. North and Saint sat near their parents.
Over on Kim’s Instagram (where fan responses generally come from individuals already following the star), responses seemed mostly positive. Fans told Kim and her family how beautiful they all looked, although Twitter has proven a different story.
“Why all the kids look like stickers?” one fan wrote.
“Who photoshopped North in? The lighting looks… different,” another asked.
“I was looking for this comment, this deff looks photoshopped” was another comment.
“100% photoshopped lmao,” one user wrote.
To be fair, an objective argument might be that of all the Kardashian social media updates, this one isn’t screaming “Photoshop,” but Twitter seemed adamant.
The Kardashian-Jenners come plagued by a long history of Photoshop scandals. This year brought many such examples, dubbed “Photoshop fails” by Seventeen as the magazine collated a series of images it felt had been subjected to the magic editing wand.
From wonky walls and suspect waistlines to polished faces and narrowed noses, this famous family has had more than their fill of accusations. As to responding, though, the protocol tends to be one of silence: the Kardashian clan rarely gets involved in the fan commentary when it comes to Photoshop.
Kim or Kendall will get slapped with the Photoshop accusations, but for 35-year-old Khloe, it’s been going one step further. The Good American founder’s narrowed and pointed noise has been a major talking point for her fans this year – everyone seems convinced that Khloe has had a nose job.
The buzz even prompted Hollywood Life to ask plastic surgeons for their take.
“It looks like she’s had a nose job which shortened her nose and thinned it a bit. This is usually performed by removing cartilage from the end, causing it to also tilt up a bit. Her nose looked great before, so I question whether this was something that she really needed to have!” Dr. Anthony Youn told the media outlet.
Photoshop accusations aside, fans would likely agree that the Kardashian-West Christmas card this year was awesome. Kim and Kanye went low-key, they followed the athleisurewear trend, and they opted out of flaunting their eye-wateringly-high net worths.
As to the choice of wardrobe, though, it could well be a smart marketing move. Kim has just announced that her SKIMS shapewear brand is retailing a Cozy Collection, with the athleisurewear vibe manifesting in this line. Of course, there’s also Kanye’s Yeezy line to promote.
Kim’s snap currently sits at over 8.2 million likes. The Christmas card also received more than its fair share of celebrity likes: Hailey Bieber, LeAnn Rimes, Olivia Culpo, Geri Halliwell, and “Teen Mom 2” star Chelsea Houska all left likes.
Comments came in from Snoop Dogg, James Charles, Kyle Richards, and Naomi Campbell among others.
Meanwhile, Khloe has posted a snap of her Christmas tree, as has the family’s youngest member, Kylie Jenner. Fans are likely awaiting the actual Christmas pics. Well, it isn’t far off…
