British star and comedian Jennifer Saunders says that young women these days are fixated on the way they “think they should look” due to what they constantly see in social media. Blaming the “Kim Kardashian look” for making girls ill, she added that young women are spending “longer and longer in the bloody bathroom in order to capture the perfect selfie.”
"Kim Kardashian is a brand just from going on social media. It's extraordinary. I admire the chutzpah, but I've got a feeling that it can't be good for you.
"There's nothing great about it. I hate the way it makes girls think they should look. That Kim Kardashian look, it's so automaton.
"Girls spend longer and longer in the bloody bathroom, looking in the mirror, taking selfies. Girls now are getting ill because all they spend their lives doing is finding the perfect selfie.
"And you think, 'Oh, isn't that everything we tried not to be? Everything we wanted them not to have to worry about?' And yet they think they're being empowered somehow."
