Kim Kardashian gets slammed for Insta post endorsing appetite suppressants
Kim's desicion to endorse such a product was seen with a lot of scrutiny by many people, since the KKW founder is a mother-of-three
Kim Kardashian is facing immense backlash from fans and celebrities all over, and it's not over her drab met Gala dress.
The reality star has been called out ever since she posted an Instagram picture endorsing appetite suppressants on her personal account.
The 37-year-old reality star posted a picture that advertised Flat Tummy’s lollipops on Tuesday, and by early morning on Wednesday, the photo was deleted.
Although it has been largely reported that the reality star staged the delete on purpose to escape from some of the clap backs she received, a representative from Instagram told BuzzFeed in an update that it was not Kim's fault, but a technical glitch from the media company which resulted in the picture getting deleted, which has since been restored.
“We mistakenly removed content we shouldn’t have and apologized to Kim for the inconvenience caused.”
With regards to the ad, Kim's decision to endorse such a product was seen with a lot of scrutiny by many people, since the KKW founder is a mother-of-three, and being a mother of two daughters, she should be aware of the harms of using such a product.
The harshest slam to the KUWTK star came from The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil, who called out the glam mogul for being a "terrible and toxic influence on young girls".
In her tweet slamming the ad and Kim's actions, Jamil wrote, “No. F— off. No. [You’re a] terrible and toxic influence on young girls. 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.”
Further adding to her original rant, Jamil sent out a second tweet explaining her actions. “MAYBE don’t take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful. And to play with your kids. 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.’”
This is not the first time Jamil has called out the Kardashian sisters over their callous attitudes towards health and beauty. Previously, the actress had reacted to a blog post from Kardashian sister Khloe's blog, where the pregnant TV star had expressed her views to "look thin AF" in pictures.
Kim's supporters also joined on to Jamil's bandwagon and criticized the reality star for using her influencing powers to indirectly promote eating disorders.
