Kim Kardashian caused outrage today when she posted an image of her body that showed her drastically reduced body fat percentage. 

However, eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the body scan highlights a botched plastic surgery job that model Tyson Beckford called out years ago.

A quick glance out the image quite clearly shows the difference in the size of Kardashian’s hips, and that her waist starts higher on one side when compared to the other.

“I totally understand why she photoshops! One side of her body is SIGNIFICANTLY higher than the other side,” commented one social media user. Another added, “I feel like she often uses photoshop to hide this, because surely I would’ve noticed this a while ago otherwise.”

In 2018, @theshaderoom posted an image of Kardashian on set with Jimmy Kimmell. Along with thousands of others, Beckford commented on the photo, however, his input was less than favourable.

“Sorry I don’t care for it personally” he commented, adding: “She is not real, doctor f*cked up on her right hip.”

Kardashian saw the comment and bit back with what many social media users viewed as a “homophobic” reply.

“Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” she wrote, which many users took as a reference to his sexuality.

Kardashian broached the exchange months later in an interview with famed radio host Big Boy. “Really dude, like you’re going to body shame me. like, ok sis,” she said.

The beauty mogul added, “When I choose to clap back, I don’t do it to people that I think are just looking for the comeuppance, who are just looking to clout chase. That is the most annoying thing.”

“I see things all the time, I want to say something so badly and I’ll be like, ‘I’ll end you’ but then it will just continue so much more.

“So, with this, people were sending me stuff on his page and it keeps on going and going and I’m just like, ‘dude, that’s so female lame’, it’s just lame to me. And, for anyone to say that I’m homophobic, the comment of saying sis, I’m the least – like, all my best friends are gay. I support the community. I love the community. They love me, that has nothing to do with this.”
