Kim Kardashian is being ripped to shreds for this now deleted Instagram post. She is promoting a lollipop which lowers appetite and some are saying that she’s essentially promoting an eating disorder.

Completely agree with most people. She is promoting something completely wrong. This is not what 13 year old girls should be considering.

What are your thoughts on this? Sorry for the big pictures.

It's such a damaging thing to promote :/ She has a reach beyond most people in the world and there will be so many young girls struggling with their weight or the way they look seeing what she posts thinking this is the right way to go about their weight, it makes it look like it's really bad to eat for young people who will already think that as they face so much pressure to look a certain way.

yeah it's not exactly a good thing to be promoting especially to young girls (I presume they make up most of Kim's fanbase) who are most at risk for developing eating disorders...

Can’t most lollipops be classed as “apetite suppressant”? I figure they fall under the same umbrella as chewing gum

Incredibly stupid from Kim. Famous for what? Appearing in a sex tape with Ray J. What does she do?

A stupid thing to promote.

Wow, I'm really disappointed to see this. It is gross for her to promote an unhealthy relationship with food to the public, especially to young and impressionable fans. It is bad anyway but feels particularly tasteless during mental health awareness week.

Utterly ridiculous, and damaging to anybody impressionable or those with unhealthy food relationships.

Yeah let's suck lollies instead of eating. Ffs.

I don't think the product itself is inherently a bad thing or promoting eating disorders (it could be helpful for people who struggle with overeating etc. - obviously not replacing food entirely) but it's definitely irresponsible of Kim to be promoting it as something to just casually use especially given how many young people follow her. Good thing it's been deleted then ~

I think we all know what her favourite 'appetite suppressant' is...

On a more serious note though, it is a real shame that such painfully stupid (not to mention pointless) people can have a wide-reaching influence on impressionable young people.

I'm glad she's receiving controversy for that - it sends the complete wrong message out to young, impressionable people. I don't really have an opinion either way on Kim K but this was poorly thought out. I first saw about it when Jameela Jamil dragged her, and it makes sense considering this is completely against her "I Weigh" campaign - worth checking out on Instagram if you want to be inspired to love yourself.

This is my big issue. Young people look up to complete idiots these days because they have such a massive platform. We live in a world where we’re constantly giving the message that it’s ok not to be perfect, yet people follow and give time to these morons.

Yeah, this is definitely a symptom of the modern era, young people and kids have NEVER had role models adults hated in the past...

I don’t know if you’re being flippant or not but it actually is a bigger deal in this modern era. Adults may not have liked the role models for young people in the past but these days these people have much wider reach. Even 10 years ago, most young people weren’t getting this much access to celebrities and their way of life. Social media was just nowhere near as big.
