    Kim Kardashian Was Really Mad Over ~Those~ Photos Of Her In A Bikini Going Viral

    The star was body-shamed after the images from her Mexico trip went viral. Now a new Keeping Up With the Kardashians trailer shows the moment Kim first laid eyes on them.

    Back in April, Kim Kardashian went on vacation to Mexico with sister Kourtney and a bunch of their friends.

    During the trip she said she was unknowingly photographed by the paparazzi, and then this photo of her in a bikini went viral.


    When contacted for comment, the photo agency denied it had photoshopped the images.

    Many people praised Kim and said it was important to see an "imperfect" body.

    @KimKardashian Girl, the bikini pics were beautiful. That's what we need to see more of--a woman's natural beautiful body and imperfections.

    Others, however, were predictably brutal with their opinions.

    Kim later claimed during an appearance on The View that some of the images circulating had been photoshopped to "make them look worse".

    Kim said: "I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip to Mexico, and people were photoshopping and sharpening them to make them look way worse. I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn't worked out in about 12 weeks, I'd had two surgeries on my uterus. I was like, 'OK, I need to get it together.'"

    Well, now, a new teaser trailer for this weekend's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians shows the exact moment Kim saw the images for the first time.

    Kim was sunbathing when her assistant, Steph Shepherd, saw the images appear online.


    When Kim looked at the photos, she immediately appeared shocked and upset. When her friend Larsa Pippen asked if the pictures were "good", Kim fired back: "No!"


    And then she looked angry, saying that her body doesn't actually look the way it appeared in the photos.


    And then she said she needed to go inside immediately and start "untagging" herself from the photos.


    In her confessional interview, Kim went on to reveal that she'd taken every necessary precaution to ensure the paparazzi didn't find her on the trip.


    She said: "I'm already having an anxiety attack over security. I'm already on high alert. And now the paparazzi has found us. Just the scrutiny that we get all the time, I was trying to avoid that. I thought,'OK, we're going on a private vacation, I'm not posting [photos to social media], I'm doing all the steps to try to be as private and discreet as possible."

    And she said she was fearful of people body-shaming and criticising her, describing the scrutiny she faces each day as "frustrating".


    She said: "They [the paparazzi] take pictures, and if they're not perfect people just body-shame and criticise you. And for people to think that's OK, it's just so frustrating."

    Well, I think we can all agree that Kim looked amazing. Just look at this Snapchat from the same vacation.

    Vacation? More like slay-cation, amirite?!
