However, unlike most sugary snacks, this particular product was promoted by Kim as an appetite minimising lolly - 'They're Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they're literally unreal'.

In a since-removed Instagram post (screenshotted and shared by Jameela, among others), Kim touted a new product from the makers of the controversial Flat Tummy Tea: so-called "Appetite Suppressant Lollipops". "They're giving the first 500 people on their website 15% OFF so if you want to get your hands on some... you need to do it quick!"

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared a sponsored post on her social media account, encouraging her followers to check out a lollipop made by Flat Tummy Co. that supposedly curbs your appetite, helping you get the flat tummy that society expects you to have, or some such nonsense. Fans and critics alike have called out how problematic it is for Kim to advertise diet products like this, which aren't proved safe or effective and can encourage disordered eating, to her 111 million followers. And to have fun with your friends.

He added: "However, we know that appetite suppressants are used by people with restrictive eating disorders like anorexia, and feel it is harmful to widely distribute and promote such products".

"And to have something to say about your life at the end, other than "I had a flat stomach". You awful and toxic influence on young girls. "You can have a fit and healthy body without starving yourself and listening to your body when it needs food". "Please start to do some good with the platform you have..."

Ignoring the hate, one wrote: "Beautiful queen.", as another added: "You look absolutely balm oh my god". For reasons I can not understand, many young people follow and worship the ground KK walks on with her ridiculous designers heels that cost more than my mortgage. "This is incredibly damaging and risky". "Jesus Christ they're moeny respect", a Twitter user wrote in response to the actress.

"This woman has far too much influence over young girls and seems incapable of using it in a positive way".
