Kim Kardashian Slammed For "Promoting Eating Disorders" By Endorsing Appetite Suppressant

Both Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian also rep Flat Tummy Co., sharing posts about fat-burning teas and diet drink mixes with their millions of followers, though neither sister has posted anything about an appetite-suppressing lollipop yet. "We need to teach/learn healthy relationships with food", added another. And to have fun with your friends. "Stuff like this was so personally damaging when I was younger I hate that disorder eating is still being promoted".

Dr Liam Hackett, activist and founder of anti-bullying charity Ditch The Label, tweeted Kim had abused her influence and ignored the responsibility she has to young people.

Another commenter wrote, "It's imperative that we step back and remember that an influencer as big as Kim Kardashian are making $$$$$$ per #ad and #spons post". She praised Kris Jenner's "branding capabilities" but concluded that "this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to". "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. You are setting the worst example to girls all over the world. No one should have to feel the need to suppress their appetite to fit to ridiculous beauty standards. Even if I am broke I would never tarnish the body confidence, self love and wellness ethos I have grown online. "You are so much better than this", one wrote. "Please start to do some good with the platform you have..."

"This is a disgusting and shameful thing to promote".

The backlash was immediate, with fans criticizing Kardashian in the comments for promoting "such an unhealthy approach to weight loss". Despite Kardashian deleting the post, screenshots of the controversial ad made the rounds on social media Thursday. "But not at the expense of hundreds of teens who would enter that vicious cycle of insecurity and body shaming".

However, her latest business venture is being criticized for its shameless promotion of shallow betterment. "This is incredibly damaging and unsafe".

Bottom line: While they may not be risky, appetite suppressant lollipops aren't necessarily a healthy part of any diet-and there are easier (and better-for-you) ways to reduce cravings. Jesus Christ. They're money hungry.
