Kim Kardashian sucks!

So say media personalities and nutritionists, after the reality TV star promoted diet lollipops on social media.

The mom of three has been told she’s a “terrible and toxic” influence on girls and young women after sharing an ad campaign for the appetite suppressants.

The 37-year-old shared a snap of herself sucking on a red lolly on her Instagram account, which has over 110 million followers.

Kim captioned the pic: “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! #suckit”

The post was immediately slammed by critics, with TV presenter Jameela Jamila skelling on Twitter: “No. F*** off. No. You terrible and toxic influence on young girls.

“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.

“MAYBE don’t take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful. And to play with your kids. And to have fun with your friends.

“And to have something to say about your life at the end, other than: ‘I had a flat stomach.'”

And leading nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert said Kim was being a bad influence.

She told MailOnline: “When these celebs start promoting unhealthy behaviours, they can be taken very seriously by some people which may encourage or lead to disordered eating and an unhealthy relationship with food.

“It is incredibly sad to see posts that are liked by so many individuals, going against everything we as nutritionists are trying so hard to fight. Products such as appetite suppressants have no place in a well-balanced diet.”
