Kim Kardashian Provokes Fury With 'Appetite Suppressant' Lollipop Plug

Kim Kardashian Slammed For

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star often shares sponsored posts with her 111m followers, advertising various products - but when she posed seductively with a lolly which claimed to be an appetite suppressant, several fans were less than impressed.

On Tuesday Kardashian West, who has more than 111 million Instagram followers, posted a photo of her sucking a Flat Tummy lollipop, which promises to curb food cravings.

Jamil continued to tweet about body shaming and "bad 'influencers.'" She recently gave an interview to The Cut in which she said, "It's insane and criminal to have a platform and not use it for good ..."

No. Fuck off. No.

Total poised to pull out of Iran's SP11 project without U.S. waiver
The project waiver should include protection of the Company from any secondary sanction as per US legislation, it added. Total said it was working with French authorities towards trying to secure a waiver for the South Pars project.

Jameela Jamil, the actress who plays Tahani on "The Good Place", tweeted that Kardashian was a "toxic influence" for young girls.

"What kind of mother would advertise appetite suppressants". @flattummyco just dropped a new product.

She added, "MAYBE don't take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful".

Most people took to Twitter to call Kim out, although a few didn't see the issue and defended her.

No, the Next STAR WARS Spin-Off Won't Focus on LANDO CALRISSIAN
Premiere blames a miscommunication between Kennedy and the interviewer for the previous erroneous quote. "'We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but this is not news'".

Kim Kardashian is getting some flack on social media yet again - this time for promoting an appetite suppressant lollipop. No one should have to feel the need to suppress their appetite to fit to ridiculous beauty standards.

"She finished her message by asking her followers to "#suckit". And to have fun with your friends. Jesus Christ. They're money hungry.

One Instagram user wrote: "This made my blood boil".

Kardashian West is far from the only celebrity to have promoted dubious diet products on social media. That can be empowering when done right, which would mean when promoting body positivity, self-love, and healthy behaviors to their massive followings.

What Macy's Got Right in Q1
Taken together, these positive factors give us confidence to raise both our sales and earnings guidance for the fiscal year. As the recently-floundering retailer keeps raising its outlook , though, it also risks creating expectations it can't meet.

On the company's website, the lollipop is described to have the ingredient satiereal, which they claim is a "clinically proven safe active ingredient extracted from natural plants". 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.
