Rob Kardashian is speaking out in defense of his weight gain after photos circulated yesterday of the 27-year-old looking rather hefty.
It’s the first time we’ve seen Rob in several weeks, so naturally the Internet reacted in a big way.
“So I found out I was trending for being fat…” Rob wrote on Twitter. “Thank you all, it really made my day :)”
Rob’s been struggling with his weight for the past year, but rumors he got sent to fat camp to slim down before his sister Kim’s wedding were dispelled yesterday.
“To the blogs saying I went to fat camp or rehab, LOL.” he tweeted. “Then why am I still fat u fools?? Y’all must have run out of real news.”
“First, I don’t believe in rehab or therapy or anything of that sort and second, I’m a grown man and will work on myself when I choose,” he said. “I’m aware that I’m fat that def ain’t a surprise to me lol… My only therapy will be in the gym, anyways had to say somethingggggggggg.”
Khloe Kardashian also stood up for her brother, coming to Rob’s defense on Twitter.
“I love you @robkardashian,” she wrote on Tuesday. “Some of you people are disgusting for calling others names and picking on them… You should be ashamed of yourself. Your words are cutting deeper then you know and are [possibly] leaving lifetime scars!”
“What shallow souls some of you are,” she continued. “It’s sickening to critique anyone off of their appearance. Grow up!”
Khloe knows a thing or two about dealing with weight in the public eye. Here’s to hoping the family bands together to give Rob the support he needs.
