Kim Kardashian West Confesses Social Media Slams 'Do Hurt My Feelings'

Kim Kardashian West spoke at the Forbes Women's Summit about how she's learned from her mistakes

Kim Kardashian West is known for #winning on social media, but the reality star admits it can be tempting to feel like a loser when confronted by waves of criticism from faceless commenters.

At Tuesday’s Forbes Women’s Summit, Kardashian West, 36, spoke out about how difficult it can be to brush off the haters, saying, “You post something and it’ll be a million amazing comments and then it could be one or two negative comments that really do affect you and get to you.”

Adds Kardashian West, “I’m human just like everyone else, things do hurt my feelings.”

Last year, following the release of her Forbes cover story, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star fought back at her social media detractors, first sending out a tweet sharing the cover and mentioned that her “Dad would be so proud.” She then went on to add a separate tweet which read, “#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent” — referring to the widespread belief from haters that she’s famous for “no reason.”

The negative comments aren’t the only thing she’s putting in her rearview: Kardashian West also revealed how she’s taking her job as role model seriously, including making peace with her past — and encouraging her fans to do the same.

“I definitely obviously have made my fair share of mistakes like everyone else, but I hope to never repeat those mistakes and just learn from what I’ve done,” she shared. “If people or young girls or kids can look up to just someone that works really hard and focuses on really what I want and makes that happen, then I hope that inspires them.”
