Kim Kardashian is being slammed left, right, and center on Twitter and Instagram for advertising an appetite-suppressing lollipop on her social media pages.

The 37-year-old reality star posted a snap of herself, since deleted, with the lollipop, captioned “#suckit” and bigging up the product’s “literally unreal” effects. As Kardashian soon found out, promoting weight-loss products to her 111 million followers wasn’t her best idea, and it wasn’t long before followers started shredding her for appearing to glamorize eating disorders.

Here’s the original post:

Instagram comments came flooding in, since lost with the original post’s deletion, bashing Kardashian as representing “everything that’s wrong with this world,” and claiming that all she “cares about is money, instead of the impact the messages [she] send[s] out will have on [her] followers.”

And the reactions on Twitter weren’t much better.

This isn’t the first time Kardashian has endorsed weight-loss products; she’s been known to promote the brand FitTea — although the jury seems to be out on whether she actually tried it.

What do you think of Kim’s post? Let us know in the comments.

Next up, Nike just announced a diversity initiative to improve its workplace environment.
