Instagram Apologizes to Kim Kardashian After Removing Her Appetite Suppressant Post

Instagram Apologizes to Kim Kardashian After Removing Her Appetite Suppressant Post

KIM Kardashian was slammed by fans, including actor Jameela Jamil, for promoting "appetite suppressant" lollipops in a now-deleted Instagram ad. However, when she posted an advertisement for Flat Tummy Co.'s appetite suppressant lollipops, calling them "literally unreal" and offering a discount, critics bashed her for promoting the product.

No. Fuck off. No.

Discussing the product, registered nutritionist Laura Thomas told HuffPost: "Kim Kardashian West has an enormous responsibility to protect her audience, which is likely to be full of young people vulnerable to troubled relationships with food". Kim went on to further promote the lollipops by telling fans that the first 500 people to buy them would get 15% off.

Kardashian West has not publicly responded to Jamil's comments.

Others took the reality star to task on social media.




"It's not a bad thing to be hungry or to eat!" one fan wrote to the 37 year old mom-preneur. While this isn't the first time that Kimmie's endorsed a questionable product, she's since been accused of "lying to teens who look up to" her. Yikes. "Let's teach the younger generation that's watching Kim that instead of trying to find shortcuts you need to eat right, hit the gym, and actually take care of your body".

Maybe the outrage will make Kim think more carefully about the brands she chooses to endorse. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Another woman wrote, "Wow I have lost all respect for Kim Kardashian". "Plus, there is a higher chance of long term negative body image, unhealthy weight control behaviors and overall body dissatisfaction in those who have a form of disordered eating". And to have fun with your friends. "And to have something to say about your life at the end, other than 'I had a flat stomach, '" she added.

Though it's expected at this point that celebrities will use their massive followings to garner new business partnerships, and plenty of A-listers promote brands on their Instagrams, Kardashian's latest endorsement has hit a nerve with her peers and her dedicated fan base.

And she's not the only one in her family: Kylie Jenner infamously endorsed waist trainers, which came as part of a "snap-back" package after she gave birth, perpetuating the pressure women feel to "fix" their postbaby bodies. "This is incredibly damaging and risky".
