Everyone has gone through a contentious break up. Sure, it can feel like the end of the world, but the way you conduct yourself during a nasty separation says a lot about the person you really are. Which has many people wondering about these photos Rob Kardashian posted of Blac Chyna, reportedly without her permission. Kardashian and Chyna's representatives did not immediately respond to Romper's requests for comment.
The photos, which Kardashian posted on his Instagram, are nude photos of someone appearing to be Chyna, though it's not entirely clear that they are of her. (Romper will not be linking to the photos or Kardashian's Instagram here out of respect for Chyna.) Shortly after he posted them, the photos were removed, either by Kardashian or Instagram. Kardashian re-added the photos multiple times, though, so it seems that they were likely removed by Instagram after user reports.
The reality stars reportedly ended their short-lived relationship in early 2017, just months after Chyna gave birth to daughter Dream Kardashian. The two haven't exactly kept their acrimonious split a secret; between the screaming matches, the accusations, the request for a paternity test... it's been a rough ride for the two. But sharing naked pictures of the mother of his child on his Instagram feed, where millions of people would be able to see it, is beyond the pale.
Kardashian also shared a stream of posts about Chyna during his incredibly public rampage against Chyna, much of which appears to be nonsensical.
During his ranting and posting explicit pictures of the 29-year-old reality star, Kardashian accused Chyna of cheating, doing drugs, going through excessive plastic surgery, and more. Whether any of that is true is beside the point; the incredibly passive-aggressive nature of his public attack is the point.
The 30-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star could find himself in seriously hot water sharing naked photos of Chyna; the state of California introduced Senate Bill 255 in 2013, which made "revenge porn" illegal. According to the law, revenge porn is defined as “photographs or records by any means the image of the intimate body part or parts of another identifiable person, under circumstances where the parties agree or understand that the image shall remain private, and the person subsequently distributes the image taken, with the intent to cause serious emotional distress, and the depicted person suffers serious emotional distress.”
In one of his many Instagram posts about Chyna, Kardashian complains that he has "never been so disrespected in his entire life."
I will leave you all with the miserable irony of that particular statement. And hope he learns to treat the mother of his child with at least a modicum of human decency in the future.
