Kim Kardashian Deletes Appetite Suppressant Instagram Ad After Backlash

Thursday, 17 May, 2018

With more than 111 million Instagram followers to date, Kim Kardashian West is considered to be one of the top celebrity social media influencers to date.

Kim shared a photo of herself sucking on a lollipop, and in the caption she encouraged her followers to purchase the "literally unreal" product that claims to be able to curb hunger. The FDA says it has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of weight-loss products.

No. Fuck off. No. You awful and toxic influence on young girls.

Kim Kardashian West advertised an appetite suppressant lollipop. "This family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to". @flattummyco just dropped a new product.

"Maybe don't take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your brain and work hard and be successful", Jameela wrote in Twitter. And to play with your kids.

Kim Kardashian is getting some flack on social media yet again - this time for promoting an appetite suppressant lollipop. A lot of Kardashian's followers are young (i.e. impressionable) girls who are already more susceptible to develop eating disorders.

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".

As you've likely seen, the KUWTK star has been DRAGGED online for supporting Flat Tummy's appetite-suppressant lollipops. No one should have to feel the need to suppress their appetite to fit to ridiculous beauty standards. "Jesus Christ they're moeny respect", a Twitter user wrote in response to the actress. Kardashian made headlines earlier this year when she shared a post advertising the company's diet shakes - though fans were more concerned about the disheveled state of her kitchen than the meal replacement drink she claimed to be on. That can be empowering when done right, which would mean when promoting body positivity, self-love, and healthy behaviors to their massive followings.

The company's website says the lollipops are created to be taken when people experience food cravings.
