The creator of Brazil's world-renowned Miss BumBum competition has urged women to stop emulating Kim Kardashian-style bums, calling it 'a cause for national concern'.
Cacau Oliver says that an 'obsession' with having a fuller butt, like Kimmy K, is causing Brazilian women to 'style their own bum on hers' and is appealing to them to be 'more patriotic' and embrace the natural beauty of their Brazilian bums, which he thinks are wonderful as they are.
Well, I guess he's in the position to comment on such matter, isn't he?
This year will see the eighth annual Miss BumBum beauty pageant, which sees hundreds of hopefuls compete to win the title.
Last year, in a bid to stop the Kardashian-effect from going too far, the pageant banned contestants with bums bigger than 43inch inch diameter, which is reportedly the exact size of Kim's own derriere.
Oliver, who has recently published his autobiography, 'Make Celebrities', said: "Unfortunately Kim Kardashian's bottom has redefined parameters in the nation of the BumBum.
"Over recent years we have seen how the Kim-effect had changed what is considered a beautiful body, and especially a desirable bottom.
"Certainly, when it comes to bottom aesthetics, she has become the only reference in Brazil. Every woman wants their bum to look exactly like hers, it's almost an obsession.
"Among Miss Bumbum hopefuls it has almost become a rule that every bottom needs to look like Kim's."
Oliver shows an odd patriotism over his country's arses, adding: "Brazil has always been known as the land of the beautiful, sexy bottom. But now they are getting too big to be naturally beautiful and that should be a cause for national concern."
He added: 'I would ask Brazilian women to think again before trying to achieve a bottom like Kim Kardashian's.
'I would ask them to be patriotic and instead of trying to copy an American bottom, strive to preserve Brazil's image around the world.'

It's not just Brazilian women that are coveting Kim's arse - The Plastic Surgery Group in the UK said that during the second half of 2016 there was a 50% increase in consultations for the so-called 'Brazilian Butt Lift'.
