AceShowbiz - Khloe Kardashian has defended herself after coming under fire for endorsing weight loss shakes online.
The 33-year-old hit back at critics who accused her of promoting an unrealistic lifestyle to her millions of Instagram followers, and insisted that she always tries to keep her social media presence "authentic."
In an interview with the New York Times, the reality star reflected on her past endorsements, and insisted that she is more selective over deals than she was at the beginning of her career.
"I think in the beginning of our careers we got really excited like 'OMG, a brand wants me!' and sometimes it might not be an alignment with things you believe in," the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star said. "You step into this whirlwind and this whole life and we've been very particular about what we do."
Elsewhere in the interview, Khloe revealed that she wants to help fans discover the empowering benefits of exercise, and explained that she shares all of her workouts on Snapchat because she's aware that not everyone can afford her lifestyle.
"Well, listen, I am showing you what to do, silly person, 15 repetitions, three times, here's the move," she said.
Last month, British actress Jameela Jamil attacked Khloe on Instagram, calling the star "irresponsible" and suggesting that she was damaging young girls by being so focused on her body.
"It's incredibly awful that this industry bullied you until you became this fixated on your appearance," she wrote. "But now please don't put that back into the world, and hurt other girls, the way you have been hurt. You're a smart woman. Be smarter than this."
