Kim Kardashian is masterful at using social media to keep loyal fans in the loop on her comings and goings. But her recent Twitter posts have stirred up controversy.
Just three weeks after accidentally-on-purpose leaking pictures of herself posing in sexy swimwear at a recent fashion shoot on Twitter before the shoot was even over, Kim Kardashian tweeted her way into hot water this week while on board a flight to LA.
Accessing Twitter at 30,000 feet through the airline’s on-board Internet service, the infamous Kim K. tweeted, “I’m on the airplane…love wifi! I am sitting next to an Air Marshall [sic]! Jim the air marshall makes me feel safe!”
Fans were quick to respond, and chastise the reality TV beauty for blowing her seat-mate’s cover.
According to the Transportation Security Administration website, the job of a Federal Air Marshal is “to detect, deter, and defeat hostile acts targeting U.S. air carriers, airports, passengers, and crews.” For security purposes, they are supposed to keep their identity concealed — and Kim insists hers did.
“I am just a private eye & assumed, so I asked him and he was honest!” she tweeted in response to comments from fans.
The brunette bombshell is adept at using social media tools to capture the public’s attention, as evidenced by her recent Twitter posts that included pictures of herself in a slinky almost-one-piece and a tiger-print bikini at a photo shoot.
“HOT HOT HOT! Not even retouched yet!,” she tweeted with glee about the new pics. And, hot they were. The photos showed off Kardashian’s hourglass figure adorned with little more than a few strips of spandex, and undoubtedly set her male admirers into a Twitter forwarding frenzy.
Kim has long insisted that her curves are all-natural, which may very well be true. But, women who lack the same level of bootiliciousness have been inspired by stars like Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez to undergo cosmetic surgery, including breast and buttock augmentation.
Dr. Lane Smith, a board certified plastic surgeon in Las Vegas, notes that he has seen an increase in requests for buttock implants from women wanting to achieve a more well rounded look. He explains that women who want a bigger booty can opt for silicone implants or a “Brazilian Butt Lift” where a doctor removes fat tissue from one part of the body, and injects it into the buttock.
Although Kim denies having ever gone under the knife, she admits she will follow in her sister Kourtney’s footsteps and get a breast augmentation in the future, after she has kids. As for what other cosmetic surgery she would undergo? She’s not sure, but tells Us Magazine, “I think every woman needs a good lift after they have kids, so I would start with that. You never know what I would need–it depends on what I would look like when I get older. But I would definitely do something.”
