"This is incredibly damaging and risky", and "Can't believe Kim Kardashian is that rich but still feels the need to promote appetite suppressing lollipops of all things?"

As we told you, the KUWTK star was being dragged Wednesday for promoting Flat Tummy's appetite-suppressant lollipops.

While many fans thought Kim Kardashian West listened to their grievances, that doesn't appear to be the case. 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!

Kardashian has since removed the post, although at the time of writing it remains viewable as an Instagram Story.

Actress Jameela Jamil then weighed in, posting a heated message to Twitter telling Kardashian West to "fuck off" and describing her influence as "terrible and toxic".


"I admire their mother's branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius, however this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to", she continued in a series of tweets.

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

Kourtney Kardashian has also copped heat for her lifestyle choices, namely, her tiny portions and gluten free diet, despite not suffering from any sort of gluten allergies.

The company's website says the lollipops are created to be eaten when people experience food cravings. "Kim took second", the US Federal Trade Commission posted to their site, sparking a conversation around undisclosed celebrity and influencer paid posts on social media and leading to the advent of the #ad era. In September past year, the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) ordered it to take down a post from Geordie Shore star Sophie Kasaei's Instagram that advertised a slimming tea product.
