Kim Kardashian Criticized For Promoting Appetite-Suppressing Lollipops”

Kim Kardashian West is under fire for promoting an appetite suppressant.

Jameela's followers praised her for calling out Kim's post while sharing their own disbelief at the ad - which has also disappointed plus-size model and self-love advocate Felicity Hayward. You awful and toxic influence on young girls (sic).

After Jameela saw the post focused on the Kardashians' weight, she set up an Instagram account called I Weigh, which urges women to count their weight in all the things that make them wonderful - like being a good friend, kicking ass at work, beating illnesses and being a feminist.

Kardashian has since deleted the post, likely as a result of the fierce backlash it stirred up across social media platforms. @flattummyco just dropped a new product.

Whether branding a line of cosmetics, or posting to social media the benefits of using a waist-trainer, Kardashian's fortune capitalizes on society's insecurities. Appetite suppressant lollipops. I know y'all will do anything for money but capitalizing off of a product created to encourage disordered eating sICK" and "This is awful. While the actresses sarcastically said she admired Kim's "branding capabilities", she added that the reality TV star is "exploitative genius" who makes her feel "actual despair over what women are reduced to". "They're Appetite Suppressant Lollipps and they're literally unreal". "You're a role model to so many young impressionable people and you have chosen to push a product encouraging appetite suppressing.irresponsible much?" "So offended right now".

Jamil tweeted again shortly after: "MAYBE don't take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful".

Flat Tummy Co didn't immediately return HuffPost's request for comment.

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". "So with 1-2 pops per day, you'll have your hunger under control and cravings in-check".
