Kim Kardashian expressed in July during a video with her sisters that she was excited to look like she wasn't eating as she reached 119lbs.
The comment immediately drew backlash as the 37-year-old TV star was accused of not being sensitive to women with eating disorders.
Skinny these days: Kim Kardashian thanked Kendall Jenner in July when she said that the star, 37, looked like she was not eating; the exchange caused online backlash
So sorry! When on Ashley Graham's show Pretty Big Deal this week, the siren apologized for her comment and said she should have known better
'I honestly, looking back in having said that, I 100 percent completely understand where people would be coming from that felt that way,' Kim said.
'So my intention is never to offend anyone and I really, you know, apologize if I offended anyone, because an eating disorder is – I know people that have serious eating disorders that have been in and out of the hospital for 15 years, close people. So I've like, been through, I have experienced it enough to have, like, known better.'
Kim shared the video to Instagram Stories in July when she was with Khloe and Kendall.
Compassion: The reality TV queen also said she has friends with eating disorders so she should have thought of that
Kendall says it looks like Kim is not eating.
Kim replies, 'What? What? Oh my God, thank you!'
Though shamers thought Kim's reaction was horrible, they ignored that Kim was probably just happy to not be told she was fat for once – many times in the past she had been called overweight, like when she was pregnant with North and called Shamu or when she was photographed in a bikini earlier this year and haters said she had an ugly bottom.
A tough road: Kim is slender now at 119lbs, left in July. But in the past, like when she has been pregnant, she has been called fat which has been hurtful (right in 2013 when she was compared to Shamu the whale)

Kim continued: 'You know, sometimes when you're – you know I was, like, with my sisters and we were laughing and joking and it's loud and you are – you know, I dunno, I guess, sometimes you can get, like, carried away and just, it was insensitive, you know, and it definitely wasn't my intention though.'
The KKW Beauty icon added, 'And I think, especially my fans and everyone that was watching was supportive, like, “OK, look, like, maybe you guys shouldn't have said that but I know what you were saying.”'
Kim worked out with a bodybuilder for one year to get slim and cut out sugar.
A bad moment: 'You know, sometimes when you're – you know I was, like, with my sisters and we were laughing and joking and it's loud and you are – you know, I dunno, I guess, sometimes you can get, like, carried away and just, it was insensitive,' Kim explained
'I lost 20 pounds and it hasn't been easy,' she said.
She also said her mother Kris Jenner asked her if she was OK.
'My mom even, maybe a month ago, pulled me aside in the bathroom at a meeting once and was like, “I need to talk to you,” and I was like, “Oh my God, what?”
'And she pulls me aside and was like, “What are you doing?” She's like, “What is going on?” Like, “How are you losing this weight? Are you OK?”' she said.
'You know, and I was like, “Oh my God, like this is so crazy! Like, don't you see me working out like every single day? I changed how I eat, I work out.”'
