Kim Kardashian branded 'disgusting' for sucking diet lollipop which claims to suppress your appetite: 'It's irresponsible'

Kim Kardashian Slammed For

"She finished her message by asking her followers to "#suckit".

While the website for the Flat Tummy Co lollipops claims to target people with food cravings, the site adds the disclaimer, "These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration". The actress accused Kardashian West of being a "terrible and toxic influence on young girls". "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. "This family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to". reached out to Flat Tummy Co. for a statement regarding the safety of their lollipops and will update this piece with any response. It's not clear what Kim was paid for the post, although in 2016, she was reportedly pulling in $400,000 per sponsored ad.

To state the obvious: Kim Kardashian is not new to the Instagram promotion game.

"This type of behavior to help promote weight loss can often lead to not just disordered eating but studies have shown that those with disordered eating have a higher chance of developing mental disorders such as personality disorders, depression and anxiety", she notes. "Would you encourage your own kids to use appetite suppressors?"

- Dr. Liam Hackett (@DiageoLiam) May 16, 2018This is why I am disgusted at @KimKardashian agreeing to run an advertisement to her impressionable fan base.

"So yes, appetite suppressants are unsafe and bad", she explains.

"You're more satiated", Tara says.

"What kind of mother would advertise appetite suppressants". The company further recommends 1-2 lollipops per day to keep hunger and cravings under control; it is meant to "hold you over" until your next meal and not act as a meal replacement.

Kanye West is no longer the only one in the Kimye family putting people off on social media.

"The best way to lose weight is ditch the lollipop and grab an apple".

What spawned from her frustrations, though, is something much more positive. "Eating is good for you, stop convincing people to literally starve themselves of food to get a flat tummy". "There are no shortcuts here".

But within a few hours the post had been deleted from her account, after thousands of negative Instagram comments and tweets.

"The image of her sucking on a cherry-red pop included the following caption: "#ad You guys. @flattummyco just dropped a new product.
