Kim Kardashian is being slammed once again. The mum of three took to Instagram to share an advertisement that showed her holding a shake. Only that this shake was not for only enjoying a good drink but for flattening her tummy. So, of course, several people took offense and slammed Kardashian for promoting an unhealthy product to meet silly beauty standards.
The caption of the picture read, “We had a huuuuge Christmas this year and between that, New Years and everything inbetween… I felt like it was impossible to fit in my regular work outs and eat healthy. But this program is giving me a kick in the right direction that I need. These meal replacement shakes are so good and they’re helping me get my tummy back to flat.”
She further added, “I’m already feeling amazing and I’m so excited for the next few weeks. Because they’re all about getting women back on track… they’ve got a 20% off sale going on right now, so if you want to start 2019 off right … trust me, you’re going to want to check them out.”
“Maybe don’t promote products that are 1) bad for you and 2) give girls eating disorders,” wrote a user in the comments’ box. Another person typed, “How much they paying her to promote this utter garbage?” This is not the first time the makeup mogul has encouraged the use of such unhealthy products. Last year, the 38-year-old was slammed for posting ads of appetite-suppressant lollipops.
Kim didn’t respond to the backlash back then and we’re pretty sure that will not be saying anything about it right now either. Some of her loyal fans did come to take her side though, writing that it wasn’t Kim’s responsibility to play role model. What’s more, even KKW’s mum Kris Jenner was slammed for the same purpose recently. She shared an ad for a similar item but from another company.
