Kim Kardashian

Instagram's New Policy

Could DESTROY My Career

EXCLUSIVE

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."

What about Kim Kardashian.....what about her. She's fake as **** she wanted to be famous so she did a sex tape with rayj. Bitch if everygirl that made a sex tape with a celeberty then every bitch be rich and no one give two ****s about u just like no one gives two ****s now. U was married 72 days that's not a relationship. If u get ban from every single country in the world no one will know who u r. Kim Kardashians Dobbleganger gets more action than she does and guys actully would rather be with her look alike than her see no one gives a flying ****. If I had a dime for every story I heard about this whore then I would be rich and I wouldn't even have to sleep with anyone famous to get there. **** her

Million Dollar Empire, ROFLMAO. Um, come talk to me when it's actually an "EMPIRE". Selling your name and porn/reality image is not a BRAND, it is not an EMPIRE and TMZ, you just might want to call Sears and ask them about the "EMPIRE" she's built. Putting your name on merchandise that are actual ripoffs of real designer merchandise (with a few changes here and there) shows her and that family are nothing but thieves. Another attempt by Mike to build up his fantasy girl kimmykakes waning popularity.

Oh and your career would be truly missed by society. What will we ever do without your big old, over-tapped butt sharing photos 12 hours a day? And let's not forget the other part of her career where she gets to put on make-up, play dress up, and then bang black guys.

What a brainless idiot. The ToS was updated again today to make it clear to people without a brain who cannot read and simply believe media hype that they never intended to sell her - or ANYONE's - photographs. And career? That's a laugh a minute.

Sure right and has a good point, but Instagram apparently dealt with this issue. losing Kim would be a huge blow to instagram, she has the most followers on the site.

Can she not read? A week ago instagram clarified that they are not selling any pictures... she should probably do research before freaking out like an idiot.

What did I miss? Did they do away with the slow-mo? If so I can understand why Kim is so upset and says it will cut into her business! No more mid air urine shots just as it's entering her open mouth and she swallows! From what I'm told the K-whores (except for Rob, he couldn't pay someone to F him!) Anyway I heard she gargles withe it and then swallows. The only complaint she has is the frequent bleaching she's forced to go through. (I guess her teeth yellow guickly! LOL!)

Yuck, she's a pig along with her sisters. They'r all about the money even though it involves ripping off they're fans. (Shows what a real priority they take in they're lives) Really she's nothing but a whore who made her tape for free if it were a career money would have been there from the start, not as an after thought! Even Mom thinks they're a group of whores. At least they don't have Bruce's blood, he needs to save the youngest two from a career in porn before mom sets them up with some contracts in the industry!
