Blac Chyna may be going through a difficult, emotional time after she posted several bathing suit selfies and was slammed for her appearance. While some tabloids reported that Blac Chyna’s bikini body was one to envy, comments across social media platforms disagreed. The negative remarks and cruel comments flooded the photos and comments are no longer open on Blac Chyna’s Instagram account. At issue is most people responding to the photo by saying her body appears to have undergone major plastic surgery. Blac Chyna hasn’t responded to the backlash.
When TMZ shared a photo of Blac Chyna and referred to her “insane beach bod” hundreds of comments flooded the tweet with negativity, criticism, and body-shaming.
Blac Chyna is the mother of Dream Kardashian whom she had with Rob Kardashian. She has been involved in a legal battle with several of the Kardashians including Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian.
Some comments hoped that it was a bad photoshop job and that Blac Chyna didn’t transform her body into the picture seen below.

Despite the public criticism, Too Fab put Blac Chyna on their summer 2018 beach body list. The original photo on Instagram does have 134,000 likes and she included a second picture of her yellow heels and calf muscles. Still, the original photo has drawn heavy criticism with many comments posted on Twitter that are tagging her and not necessarily linked to the photo.
A visit to Blac Chyna’s Instagram will show that the photos are still posted and haven’t been removed. She has allowed comments on some of her photos but not all. At this point, Blac Chyna hasn’t made a public comment regarding the backlash as it appears she’s ignoring it.
While we live in a society that thrives off of selfies, it’s important to remember that not everyone will respond positively to pictures other people post. To have hundreds of negative comments on someone’s photo can cause serious emotional distress.
Though we don’t know how great the backlash has impacted Blac Chyna, it clearly has as she has turned the comments off on her Instagram.
Still, one would suppose that if the negative feedback were greatly distressing the photos would be removed. Now that they have been picked up by media outlets; however, it is too late to take them down.
What do you think about the backlash against Blac Chyna’s bathing suit selfie? Do you think people are going too far in their criticisms towards her?
