UPDATE 10:55 A.M. EST: Kim has since deleted her offending post without any comment.
We all know Kim Kardashian West‘s Instagram page is basically a billboard for multiple products at a time, but fans were particularly not happy on Tuesday when she posted a photo (above) promoting Flat Tummy‘s appetite-suppressant lollipops.
The 37-year-old reality star shared:
#ad You guys├óΓé¼┬ª @flattummyco just dropped a new product. They├óΓé¼Γäóre Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they├óΓé¼Γäóre literally unreal. They├óΓé¼Γäóre giving the first 500 people on their website 15% OFF so if you want to get your hands on some├óΓé¼┬ª you need to do it quick! #suckitA post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on May 16, 2018 at 6:22am PDT
~Literally unreal~, you say?
Well, people aren’t buying it… literally. Ch-ch-check out some of the upset reactions (below)!!
“Y’all would do anything for money huh ├░┼╕┬ñ┬ª├░┼╕┬Å┬╗├óΓé¼┬ì├óΓäóΓé¼├»┬╕┬Å”
“am fuming right now this is the most stupid ridiculous idiotic message to send out to young girls ever”
“U kno those lollipops are just as ineffective as laxat—-SkinnyTea. You’re with a personal trainer every single day, stop lying to teens who look up to you.”
“She has over 100 million followers and has a massive influence over young women who admire her. This is not a healthy message to be sending to young girls or a healthy way to try and lose weight, if you can’t see that I’m sorry for you. It’s disappointing that this message is coming from someone who has more than enough money to chose who she carry’s out ads for.”
“Are you sick? Appetite suppressant lollipops. I know y’all will do anything for money but capitalizing off of a product designed to encourage disordered eating sICK.”
“This is dreadful. You should be ashamed of yourself. I don’t follow you but when I read about this I needed to comment. Think of all the young girls that look up to you!! Please start to do some good with the platform you have├óΓé¼┬ª”
Kim Kardashian LITERALLY just promoted anorexia with that appetite surpressing lollipop. What. The. Actual. Fuck.

The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil also chimed in, sharing just how not okay she is with the ad:
No. Fuck off. No. You terrible and toxic influence on young girls. I admire their mother├óΓé¼Γäós branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius, however this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to. ├ó╦£┬╣├»┬╕┬Å pic.twitter.com/zDPN1T8sBM
