Los Angeles, CA: Clad in all white, actress LisaRaye McCoy poses on the red carpet at the 2016 BET Awards held at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater, June 26, 2016.
LisaRaye McCoy did not hold back on her feelings about the negative impact the Kardashians have had on the positive body image some women have of themselves.

The Players Club actress worries the plastic surgeries made popular by the Kardashians clan are leading some women to have self-esteem and negative body image issues.

“The Kardashian’s have single-handedly changed the woman’s body shape that is acceptable right now.”

“Now it’s a small waist, and all this a**, which look like the ankles can’t even hold up all of that,” she said. “I don’t even want my body to look like that because that’s the body everybody has right now.”

McCoy made her comments during an appearance on FOX Soul Live alongside Claudia Jordan, Syleena Johnson and Vivica A. Fox.

The Kardashians have been heavily criticized over the years of accentuating their features through surgeries and injections to mimic traits of black women, thicker lips; bigger butts. And, arguably, have overdone their body augmentations, becoming life-sized caricatures.

McCoy added that some women will feel like they have to change their bodies in order to get what they want, “Every generation after that feels like that’s what they have to do to secure the bag.”
