She shared a story, which featured a pic of her eyebrows, that said: "Was this an accident?"

The reality star has since hit back against the accusations, calling them 'reaching'.

However, fans weren't fully convinced and some commenters called her out, writing: "For those saying 'it was an accidental selfie posted' COME.. ON... The billionaire marketer doesn’t accidentally post anything. Be for really real."

While another wrote: "A secure woman would NEVER put another woman down."

According to Social Blade data, Kylie's Instagram following began its decline on Wednesday (22 February), dropping a whopping 124,711 followers.

She told the outlet: "People can call me ugly or stupid and I’m like, Whatever. But these people get detailed.

"They write paragraphs that are so specific and mean. I would constantly be crying. I constantly had anxiety. I couldn’t do it anymore. It was a waste of my time."

Gomez added that, out of all the social media channels, she only has TikTok on her phone as she finds it to be 'a little less hostile'.

As for her other social media channels, she explained: "Everything I do I send to my assistant who posts them. As far as comments, my team will put together a few things that are encouraging."
