Kim Kardashian freaked out in excitement as Kendall and Khloe expressed concern about her new diet and extreme weight loss, laughing when they called her ‘anorexic’. While Kim may be happy about this, fans certainly aren’t.

Kim, Kendall and Khloe got together yesterday to raise money for City of Hope with a poker tournament. The sisters appeared along with Momager Kris Jenner at the inaugural If Only Texas hold’em tournament. Kim stole the limelight in a fitted vest top, high slung PVC trousers and a new sharp bob. The reality TV star paired the look with clear plastic heels. The short hair and fitted outfit drew all the attention to her noticeably thinner curves and minuscule waist.

During the hangout, sisters Kendall and Khloe voiced their concerns on Kim Kardashian’s ever-shrinking body. Rather than take the concerns seriously, Kim got excited at what she perceived to be compliments from her sisters.

Kim first turned the camera on Kendall, who said, “No, like I’m really concerned, I don’t think you’re eating.” The supermodel added, “Like you look so skinny.” Khloe added from the background, “I’ve never seen a human being look as good. What facetune? You are a walking facetune.” At this point, Kendall demanded Kim’s attention and said, “Listen to me. My purse is as tiny as you.” Kim got steadily more excited during this conversation.

Kim then turned the camera to Khloe, who tried to compare her own body to Kim’s. The latter assured Khloe that she looked really skinny, but Khloe replied saying, “I’ve never seen a skinnier person in my life.” Kim turned the camera to Kendall, saying, “Well you have ’cause I’m looking at one.” Disregarding the rebuttal, Khloe said, “Well Kendall but that’s natural. You, it takes work to look like that. It is amazing.”

A few minutes later, Kim again took to recording her sisters talking about her body, saying, “We’re back to talking about how skinny I am. Kendall, tell me more.”  She turned the camera on a disinterested Kendall, who said, “I’ll tell you anything.” Choosing not to bother her sister, Kim said, “I’m just kidding.”

Kim then recorded a hilarious conversation between Khloe and her best friend Malika as they discussed what Kim must eat. Khloe said, “first celery, maybe some lettuce.” Malika added, “Different flavors of oxygen: is that what you eat?” Kim responded, “You guys I’m not that skinny.” Khloe replied saying, “Kimberly, I literally see through you.” Kim then revealed that she is now down to 119 pounds, adding, “I will say, when I take out my hair extensions, I am less.”

 Khloe explained, “Your hair extensions, your ass, your t**s, everything, you know they’re heavy, ’cause you’re f***ing voluptuous, but she’s anorexic [at her waist], her arms are pin-thin, they’re like my pinky.”

Fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on Kim’s tone-deaf response to eating disorders.

At the event, Khloe also dazzled in a skintight black bodysuit, showing off her impressive curves just four months after giving birth to daughter True Thompson.
