Kim Kardashian surely knows what her bottom looks like in real life. She has, surely, seen it as we saw it last week in her skimpy bikini bottoms - bumpy, a bit lumpy and decidedly imperfect.

Or, then again, maybe she doesn't. Maybe Kim, like the rest of us, has by now seen so many well-lit, well-shot, even well-oiled photos of her behind that she has no real grasp of what it truly looks like.

By today, however, any such illusions are shattered. The ass that once broke the internet has broken the hearts and shattered the illusions of a legion of Kim Kardashian fans. More than 100,000 of them have stopped following her on Instagram, devastated by the sight of Kim's rear. Not only the sight of Kim's rear, obviously, sure we've all seen that, but Kim's rear as it really is.
