As you probably know by now, Robert Kardashian Jr. (the saddest and least hot of the Kardashians) has had something of a mental breakdown on Instagram this morning. Honestly, every day that Rob doesn’t have a public mental breakdown is a miracle, so I’m not surprised. In a series of truly insane Instas that included grammatically dubious notes, videos, and photos of both Blac Chyna (Angela Kardashian if ya nasty) and the man she is supposedly cheating with, the most weed-addicted Kardashian accused his baby mama of cheating with multiple men, getting plastic surgery, and honestly it’s still going on as I type this so who knows what else he’ll accuse her of by the time this is done. Probably Russian hacking or some shit. The posts also included several now-deleted nudes that Blac Chyna had sent to him over the course of their relationship, putting literally her entire body on display for all 9.5 million of his followers.
Side note: 9.5 million people are down to follow Rob Kardashian but I can’t even get a text back? Unbelievable.
Based on Rob’s posts, he clearly believes that all of this is just providing the “receipts” and that he has the moral high ground in this situation. If these allegations of cheating “in the bed [his] baby daughter lays in” are true, that’s pretty bad, but you know what’s worse? Leaking your ex’s nudes on social media for revenge.
There’s actually a word for that. It’s called revenge porn, and not only is it the shadiest fuckboy move known to man, it’s also illegal in California. Add the fact that he just ‘grammed her personal phone number (known to creepy internet people as “doxxing”), and Rob may finally get what he’s been trying to achieve since KUWTK season one: becoming the first Kardashian to end up in fucking jail.
And here’s the thing, if Rob wanted to shame Blac Chyna for cheating, he could do that without including the nudes that she sent to him privately. He keeps claiming that he’s posting the “receipts,” but what are these photos the “receipts” for? That two people who have a baby together were sexting? These posts were literally only made to embarrass Chyna, slut-shame her, and put her entire body on display, and in posting them Rob lost every shred of credibility he had. Which was not much to begin with, TBH. I mean, he uses the word “whore” a lot. Like…a lot a lot…and to talk about his own sisters, so it’s not really shocking he’d have such a huge lack of respect for the mother of his child.
Sure, being cheated on sucks, and people do things in the heat of the moment. But posting sexual images of your ex is not a heat-of-the-moment thing. It’s fucked up, it’s a crime, and it has real consequences. Like yes, we’ve all done things during breakups that we’d like to take back. But those things are usually sending too many drunk texts that you thought were “empowering” at the time but make no sense in the sober light of day, or making out with his ugly friend to annoy him. This does not include committing a criminal sexual act for the entire world to see. It’s like, the difference between flaming someone in a subtweet and actually going to their house and lighting them on fire. One is a natural part of the breakup process. The other is a crime and makes you a crazy person. Critical distinction.
This is what so many men have yet to realize—you can dislike a woman and make a case against her without trying to “expose” her (literally) as a slut to the world. Chyna sent those photos to her baby daddy (Rob) and they were meant to be private. I get that Chyna is not necessarily the most wholesome person in the world, but she still has a right to keep her private images between herself and the person she sent them to. Every woman has that right. Every PERSON has that right. These images have absolutely nothing to do with the alleged cheating that took place, and even if they did, Rob could make his case without putting her body on blast.
And not to combat body shaming with body shaming, but maybe Rob should think about how he would feel if nude photos of his chest, ass, and genitals were leaked to the internet? I’m sure Blac Chyna has them, and I fully appreciate her reluctance to force those images on the public, but it’s definitely hypocritical for Rob to act like the sexting didn’t go both ways here.
Side note: Always ask for return nudes from a fuckboy if you doubt his loyalty. It’s called mutually assured destruction, and it’s very powerful.
Look, Blac Chyna isn’t perfect. She tried to trademark the name Angela Kardashian and stole all of Rob’s Eggos (horrifying). But just because someone has snake-like tendencies and a questionable Instagram persona, doesn’t mean that the rules of
feminism basic human decency and THE FREAKING LAW don’t apply to them. Chyna has just as much a right to not have compromising photos of her put online as a the ultra-Christian girl who your parents are always trying to make you be friends with. And if you don’t think those girls have nudes, you’ve never been to a Christian sleep-away camp.
The bottom line here is that revenge porn is never okay, and once you stoop to that level IDGAF if your baby momma cheated on you 100 times in your bed with your baby, you are no longer deserving of sympathy and must take literally every seat. Rob, this shit wasn’t cool when someone (your mom) did it to your sister, and it’s not cool for you to do it now.
