Taking to Instagram, the Don't Be Tardy star posted a full-length picture of her body and showed off her hot new heels, but the problem with this picture arose from the caption. "My feisty followers want me to take my pics closer up so you guys can see the detail!! How's this and listen I turn my feet in so you can see my damn shoe not to have a thigh gap cause I have that anyway!!" she wrote.

While fans are unimpressed with how "vain" Zolciak has become, there's also a bigger issue here. Is boasting about having a thigh gap creating body image issues among her younger, more impressionable fans?

One fan certainly thinks so, and she took to social media to write a lengthy message to Zolciak about how her comments can be harmful.

"I love your posts Kim, but I would say a post like this gloating about a thigh gap that you "have already" can be a major trigger for girls who have eating disorders or those who have recovered- like myself. You are absolutely stunning and have a great figure. Anyone can tell that by looking at you from any angle. Don't feel like you have to justify how beautiful your body is," the concerned fan wrote.
