Kim Kardashian announced that she watched the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary and understands what she’s going through when it comes to unfavorable media coverage. 

The 40-year-old posted on her Instagram story comparing her struggles with the media to what Britney is having to go through during this tougher time in her life. 

“So I finally watched the Britney Spears documentary this week and it made me feel a lot of empathy for her. The way the media played a big role in her life the way it did can be very traumatizing and it can really break even the strongest person. No matter how public someone's life may seem, no one deserves to be treated with such cruelty or judgment for entertainment,” she explained. 

Kim shared a very vulnerable time in her life during her pregnancy with her first child, North West. She suffered from preeclampsia that causes the mother to swell more than normal during pregnancy and the media attacked her for that. 

"I cried every single day over what was happening to my body mainly from the pressure of being constantly compared to what society considered a healthy pregnant person should look like - as well as being compared to Shamu the Whale," she stated.

"Looking at all of the photos of myself online and in magazines made me so insecure and I had this fear of wondering if I would ever get my pre-baby body back. I was shamed on a weekly basis with cover stories that made my insecurities so painful I couldn't leave the house for months after. It really broke me,” the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star shared. 

Other celebrities shared their experiences as well and felt for the pop star, including Dua Lipa, Bella Thorne, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus, Garcelle Beauvais, Jon Bon Jovi and more, according to U.S. Weekly. 

"I'm sharing this just to say I really hope everyone involved in the business of shaming and bullying someone to the point of breaking them down might reconsider and instead try to show some understanding and compassion," Kardashian concluded.
