Kendall Jenner Skinny Comments Cause Backlash from 17-Year-Old Star

The Kendall Jenner skinny jibes that have been flying around have finally got to the young star, who hit out at her critics, claiming ‘skinny’ jokes are just as hurtful as ‘fat’ jokes "I'm constantly criticized for being too skinny," Jenner tells Harper's Bazaar Arabia.

"I'm trying to gain weight but my body won't let it happen. What people don't understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat. It's not a nice feeling." The brand ambassador for Seventeen magazine added: "I'm trying my best with what I want to do, which is modeling," she tells the magazine. "I'm just doing my own thing." Her half sister Kim Kardashian, whom she appears along side on the reality TV show, Keeping up with the Kardashians, has the opposite problem, but then again, she is pregnant. The reality star, 32, has also faced a lot of criticism over her maternity wear, which, according to some outlets, shows off her curves and is either too tight or too loose.

Another Kardashian, this time Rob, is also in the news for his weight. He (allegedly) struck a photographer, who snapped him while he was topless, stole the memory card and stormed off. "I lost 5 to 7 [pounds] last week. I'm trying to lose 40," he revealed to US Magazine. "It's a little journey, but it's good. . . I'm like 240 right now, probably 235." RK added that he hopes to reach his goal weight by July 4.
