Kim Kardashian West has been called out for promoting diet lollipops on her social media. 

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. 

Claiming she was being a bad influence on impressionable fans, many people lashed out in the comments, branding her actions “toxic” and “irresponsible”.

In the shot, Kim appeared to be undressed as she posed seductively with a red lollipop by company Flat Tummy Co, staring into the camera lense as she held the candy in her pouting mouth. 

She captioned the post: “You guys… @flattummyco just dropped a new product. They’re Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they’re literally unreal. 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!”

She added the cheeky hashtag, #suckit, as she informed fans that she was being paid for posting the advert.

And fans were left reeling by Kim’s choice to work with the brand, taking to the comments under her picture to slam her for promoting a “terrible” message. 

“Wow!!!! This is disgusting!!! You don’t need the money to help your young followers get an eating disorder. You are so much better than this,” one wrote. 

While another added: “No just no! You’re a role model to so many young impressionable people and you have chosen to push a product encouraging appetite suppressing…irresponsible much?”

A third concurred: “This is NOT okay,” while a fourth added: “I can’t believe you would get paid to advertise such a dangerous thing. Surely some things are more important than money – morals, ethics, the wellbeing of your young impressionable audience! Shocking”. 

Meanwhile, some fans were less harsh on Kim, focusing instead on how she looked in the snap. 

Ignoring the hate, one wrote: “Beautiful queen…,” as another added: “You look absolutely balm oh my god”.
