Shortly after the premiere of Yellowjackets, the 44-year-old took to Twitter to hit back at trolls for criticizing her body and assured fans that she is a perfectly healthy individual and that there should be no cause for concern over her weight.

"The story of my life since Yellowjackets premiered," she wrote, adding that no one knows what she does in her day-to-day life, and therefore don't have the foggiest idea of whether or not she is in good health.

"Most egregious are the 'I care about her health! People… you don’t see me on my Peleton! You don’t see me running through the park with my child. Skinny does not always equal healthy," she penned.

Her tweet was immediately met with support and praise from fans, urging her to forget the haters.

“I have the best advice for women in business,” Kardashian said in a recent profile of her famous family for Variety.

“Get your [expletive] ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days."

“You have to surround yourself with people that want to work," Kardashian went on. "Have a good work environment where everyone loves what they do because you have one life."

"No toxic work environments and show up and do the work," she added.
