Kim Kardashian West Gets Slammed Online for Promoting an Appetite Suppressant Lollipop

It's been estimated that Kim gets paid as much as $500,000 per sponsored post on Instagram, so it's unclear what happens if she stops a campaign early. She went on the urge her followers to check out the website and get some for themselves.

Kardashian has yet to respond to the backlash and Flat Tummy Co. did not immediately respond to a Daily News request for comment. And to have fun with your friends. After all, Kim does have a bangin' body, but it's unlikely she got it just from a few lollipops-she has enough money to hire trainers and chefs and generally have a lifestyle conducive to remaining thin. "And to have something to say about your life at the end, other than 'I had a flat stomach.'" The tweet was accompanied by a GIF of Mr. Bean holding up the middle finger.

"I admire their mother's branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius, however this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to", Jamil continued.

Quickly, fans replied to her post asking her to take it down, angry that she was indirectly promoting eating disorders to impressionable fans. Jameela Jamil took to Twitter to brand Kardashian West a "terrible and toxic influence on young girls", while eating disorder charity Beat told HuffPost UK it believes that widely promoting such products is "harmful". "The day someone stops taking the suppressants, their natural hunger hormone, known as gherlin, will return and often with a vengeance".

"So yes, appetite suppressants are unsafe and bad", she explains. It is also no secret that social media is affecting our collective mental health and putting young people under an enormous amount of pressure to look a certain way. "She should be held accountable as she's promoting disordered eating and not clearly communicating the risk associated with the products she's pushing". Turns out artificial suppressants can become potentially addictive in the long term because people may see quick but unsustainable results, Beckerman says.

In January 2018, she came under fire from health-concious users who claimed she was sending the wrong message to her followers by promoting meal replacements. But regardless, let this be a lesson: the Kim K stamp of approval doesn't necessarily indicate the healthiest option.
