After showing off her toned figure in a new shoot for Sorbet magazine, Khloe Kardashian received some skeptical comments about the reasons for her dramatic weight loss.

Fans have been speculating for months that both Khloe and her sister Kim, who slimmed down significantly last year to fit into the historic Marilyn Monroe gown for the Met Gala, have used a prescription drug to lose weight. Semaglutide, sold under the brand name Ozempic or Wegovy, is a drug prescribed to Type 2 diabetics to help manage their blood sugar levels and has been in short supply lately since rumors have abounded that the Kardashians and other Hollywood stars have relied on it to suppress their appetite.


In Khloe’s recent Instagram post in which she shared some glamor shots she took for the magazine, one commenter noted, “the fact that she uses [diabetic] medicine to get this skinny is disturbing.” Khloe, who has repeatedly spoken on the family’s show about how she is sensitive to hate comments about her appearance, clapped back at the critic.

“Let’s not discredit my years of working out,” she wrote. “I get up 5 days a week at 6am to train. Please stop with your assumptions. I guess new year still means mean people.”

The reality star’s weight has been a point of conversation and concern among fans and haters alike for over a decade since being called the “fat sister” upon the release of the premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2007.

“I didn’t really realize that I was ‘the fat sister’ if you will, until I went on TV and the media started saying that about me,” she told People in a 2015 interview. “I started saying it before people. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m the fat, funny sister. Who cares?’ I almost let that take ownership of me. [But really] I wasn’t fat. I wasn’t obese. But I would let society make me believe that I was.”

Khloe has been open about her weight loss journey both on the show and on social media.

“I openly talk about my nose job and anyone who ‘looks up’ to me must know I’ve lost over 60 pounds over the years,” she also said in response to comments about her appearance in her latest shoot. She continued, “Either way, attacking someone is sad in my opinion. Unprovoked is the saddest part. If you are offended or don’t like what you see, you simply don’t have to say anything.”
