Jaime King Cried for Hours When Pregnant Kim Kardashian Was Bashed at the Met Gala 2013

Jaime King is all smiles making her way back to her car holding a large bouquet of flowers on Wednesday evening (March 25) in West Hollywood.

The 35-year-old pregnant actress was accompanied by her husband Kyle Newman as they headed home after attending a special Vogue dinner at A.O.C. Wine Bar and Restaurant.

Jaime recently opened up about her thoughts on cyberbullying, specifically when it comes to pregnant women, which was triggered by Kim Kardashian‘s appearance at the 2013 Met Gala.

“She was with Kanye, but she wasn’t fully accepted by the fashion industry. Riccardo Tisci was very brave in dressing her. Anna Wintour had invited her to the Met ball, which is a big deal and a big step up for her. But when she was pregnant [there], I remember going back in my hotel room and crying for like five hours because I kept seeing all these things come up online, all of these horrible pictures and GIFs,” Jaimie told Elle. “I couldn’t stop crying because here was this beautiful glowing pregnant woman who is probably so excited to be attending the Met ball for the first time with the man that she loved, and she had this beautiful dress made for her that was very daring and very gorgeous, and she has a beautiful growing child inside of her, and yet everybody bashed her and called her a whale or said she looked like a couch or drapes.”

“It was so stunning to me that people thought that that was okay – not only okay but they condoned it. They would retweet it, they would talk about it, they would put it on the Internet, they would call her a whale on the cover of a magazine,” Jaime continued. “They would not even think about the way it would affect her mental health and the child’s health. It emotionally tapped into a place for me because I was newly pregnant [with my first child]. What kind of world are we living in now where this is okay, where our bodies are being essentially sold to the highest bidder regarding their comments and that we are just put up on a cross to be persecuted?”
