Kim Kardashian recently shared an open letter written by her younger sister Khloe, who lashed out at critics for abusing the pregnant reality TV star.
In January Kim, 31, announced that she and boyfriend Kanye West were expecting their first child. The reality TV star has faced media scrutiny over her weight and fashion choices ever since. In an angry and seemingly candid rant, Khloe, 28, described these critics as "scum" and demanded that they leave her sister alone once and for all.
"I can not tolerate one more vicious attack on my sister! For anyone to ever criticize a woman who is growing another life inside of her is true scum in my eyes. I want this to be the most memorable and beautiful time in your life," Khloe wrote.
"I would hurt for her for years if all she remembers is the pain and emotional abuse she has received from so many vicious people...words are a powerful weapon...all I ask is that you think about the consequences of your words," she continued.
In recent months various US.. tabloids have run cover page stories which appear to exaggerate Kim's weight gain. Others have ridiculed her fashion choices including her footwear and critics like talkshow host Wendy Williams have openly expressed doubt that West, 35, will stay with her after the baby is born.
"She and Kanye will not make it and what kind of mom will she be? A single mom," Williams said on Bravo TV's "Watch What Happens Live."
"(They will split) 30 seconds after the baby is born. I believe right now there is probably a plan in motion and Kris (Jenner) is probably helping Kim and Kim is probably asking for the help," she added.
Khloe, who is known for lashing out at her "haters," commended her sister for enduring the ingoing criticism.
"I have no idea how you endure such abuse but still smile and shine everyday! I commend you for not putting your head down and going into hiding like so many would," she wrote. "Kimmie you are perfect the way your are!"
