Kareena Kapoor, along with Karisma Kapoor and a deluge of Bollywood celebrities recently attended a star-studded bash thrown by Isha Ambani.

The Kapoor sisters both chose to wear cute LBDs (little black dress) to the occasion; however in typical fashion — the faceless trolls on the interwebz found something to criticise and spew their hatred towards.

This time the receiving end wasn't a human, but body parts. Yep. Trolls picked apart Kareena's anatomy and decided that her legs were "too fat". The actor was body shamed on social media platforms in the wake of the pictures from the Ambani bash surfacing online.

Several comments spouted hate towards a woman who had given birth all of nine months ago, as trolls called Kareena's legs "deformed" while the more eloquent ones went with "Bebo has such fat legs ewww". Some people decided that Karisma was the "natural" one between the two, and that Kareena was trying "way too hard".

Instances of actresses being body-shamed or slut-shamed on social media are now more common than ever, with the most recent examples including Deepika Padukone, Taapsee Pannu, Fatima Shaikh Sana, among others.
