Kim Kardashian branded 'disgusting' for sucking diet lollipop which claims to suppress your appetite: 'It's irresponsible'

Kim Kardashian Slammed For

Kim posted a photo of her with the candy and wrote in her caption that the lollipops are "literally unreal"; she was basically advertising a discount for the lollipops.

The reality TV star sparked fury online after sharing an advertisement for "Appetite Suppressant Lollipops" from Flat Tummy Co, a company known for selling "detox" teas and shakes. Earlier this year, she drew attention to an Instagram post shared by a lifestyle magazine that shared the exact weight of each member of the Kardashian clan.

Kardashian's followers swiftly jumped in the comments section, some even accusing her of recklessly promoting eating disorders. And to play with your kids. "Disgusting. You should be ashamed". With thousands of Kim's followers being young, impressionable girls, many felt that Kim's promotion was insensitive and damaging to her young female fans. That can be empowering when done right, which would mean when promoting body positivity, self-love, and healthy behaviors to their massive followings. Fan happinessnwrathe wrote: "Are you sick?" She praised Kris Jenner's "branding capabilities" but concluded that "this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to". "You bad and toxic influence on young girls", Jameela tweeted.

Television presenter Jameela Jamil was also among those to hit back vociferously at Kardashian's advert, telling her to "have something to say about your life at the end, other than "I had a flat stomach". Do you think this will have a negative effect on the Kardashian brand?

Lucasfilm Shoots Down Report About Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Spinoff Film
But maybe that's good news for Obi-Wan? According to sources and head honcho Kathleen Kennedy herself, the next step may be a Lando Calrissian spinoff tale.

"Especially for her target audience, who look up to her and probably want to have her body, she didn't get her body by eating lollipops", Condell says, adding: "A quick search of the active ingredient show there is no change in body composition, no evidence for that it would cause you to lose weight". So please don't make assumptions about things you don't know the facts about.

Don't get me wrong, I do sponsored posts on my social media, this is my career and I have rent to pay, like everyone else.

Last night Kardashian deleted the post. "But not at the expense of hundreds of teens who would enter that vicious cycle of insecurity and body shaming".

"This woman has far too much influence over young girls and seems incapable of using it in a positive way".
