Ash wrote on Instagram: ‘Is anyone else just really sad over Khloé Kardashian’s waging war against an unedited photo of herself in a bikini… a photo in which she looks beautiful?
‘How are young people expected to love their bodies when this is the message we are sending?’
She continued: ‘To be fair… I wouldn’t like it if someone posted a photo of me in a bikini I didn’t approve… but my sense on this is that the issue she has is that she deems the photo unflattering.’

The radio personality went on to say that this could have been a ‘wonderful opportunity’ for Khloé to send a positive message to other women.
She continued: ‘Moral of the story? Unless you’ve seen someone’s body in an ill-fitting bikini under those horrendous downlights in the change room… you’re not allowed to compare your body to theirs.’
The image in question – which can be viewed here – shows Khloé, 36, standing by a pool wearing a skimpy leopard-print string bikini.
The Good American founder appears unfiltered, un-airbrushed and not as flawless as she looks in campaign shots for her brand.
Soon after it leaked on various forums online, the Kardashian PR team reported the posts as copyright infringement, due to the photo being posted without permission.

The image seems to have been taken at Kris Jenner’s desert compound in La Quinta, California, where the Kardashian and Jenner clan just spent the Easter weekend.
In the alleged unedited picture, Khloe’s waistline appears less defined, her curves less dramatic and her skin not as impossibly smooth as it looks in her carefully staged glossy fashion shoots.
Tracy Romulus, Kim Kardashian’s BFF and chief marketing officer for KKW brands, said in a statement to Page Six: ‘The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant.
‘Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.’
