The world’s youngest billionaire took a moment last night to put a bodyshamer on Instagram in their place after the commenter remarked Kylie Jenner looked “better” at 18. A Kylie Jenner fan account had shared a photo of Jenner at the Las Vegas Sugar Factory opening in April 2017. Several commenters marveled over how skinny Jenner looked as a teenager. “Wow, she’s so skinny here,” one wrote. Then another user replied, “She was better.”

Jenner saw this exchange and jumped in to deliver a succinct clapback. “I birthed a baby,” she wrote. Comments By Celebs captured a screenshot of the exchange.
Jenner had her daughter Stormi a little less than a year later in February 2018. Jenner kept her pregnancy private. “My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world,” she wrote on her Instagram awhen she announced her daughter’s birth. “I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how…I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
In September 2018, she spoke to Glamour UK about how having Stormi changed her figure. “Pregnancy completely changed my body at a super young age,” Jenner said. “But I really don’t care.”
She also told the magazine that she has learned to be less bothered by people’s hateful comments. “So many negative things come at me all the time,” she started. “Of course, it does affect me, but you develop a thick skin. Nothing has lasted so long that I haven’t gotten through it, so whenever a new bad story or rumor emerges, I know it will pass, too. Everything in life is transient.”
