Kim Kardashian

Instagram's New Policy

Could DESTROY My Career

Kim Kardashian
is afraid Instagram's new policies will torpedo the million-dollar empire she's spent years building -- and THAT'S why she's threatening to drop the photo-sharing app ... Kim tells TMZ.

Kim was out in L.A. yesterday when we asked about her tentative plans to bail on Instagram following a controversial change in the company's terms of service -- which seems to give the company power to sell user photos to outside companies without compensating the user.

Kim responded, "I just don't think they should have the right to sell [our photos] to advertising companies on our behalf. What if we don't want to advertise what they want?"

Kim's concern is pretty obvious -- she doesn't want her face promoting products that could damage her brand ... and if Instagram's got the power to use her face as it wishes, she wants no part of it.

She added, "I just hope they revise it."

This A list reality star wants everyone to think she is on board with the way the world feels about the whole Instagram policy, but in reality, she is working out a deal to get paid by the company and won't be deleting her account anytime soon and instead will be promoting it every chance she gets.

Best news I have heard yet. If Instagrams new policy will shut the Kardashians down then my vote is full steam ahead.

If her career is totally dependent on Instagram then she is more stupid than I thought she was. No redeeming value whatsoever.

It is the first time that I saw KK on video. She walks and looks like a duck.

O Kim! Your 2 million fans are the dumbest people in the world so it won't matter what they use your picture to endorse a product. Get a grip yo!

it's funny because her whole family have built an empire advertising themselves to us, and we (except for the armpit's of the world) don't want their "advertising"
