Kim Kardashian sparked anger from fans and the wrath of actress Jameela Jamil for promoting “appetite suppressant lollipops” to her 111 million followers on Instagram.

The reality TV star on Tuesday shared a since-deleted photograph of herself sucking on a Flat Tummy Co lollipop ― which she described as “literally unreal.”

The backlash was immediate, with fans criticizing Kardashian in the comments for promoting “such an unhealthy approach to weight loss.”

“This is disgusting,” wrote one. “Your fans are going to be seeing this and thinking that this is how to get your body. Eating is good for you, stop convincing people to literally starve themselves of food to get a flat tummy.”

“The Good Place” star Jamil assailed Kardashian on Twitter, describing her as a “terrible and toxic influence on young girls” and telling her to “fuck off.”

“I admire their mother’s branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius,” wrote Jamil. “However, this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to.”

Other people echoed Jamil’s concerns, condemning the message Kardashian appeared to be sending

Flat Tummy Co’s website says its lollipops contain “satiereal” (an extract of saffron stigma, which it claims “helps control food intake, cravings and weight) and are “designed to help you suppress your appetite.”

“So with 1-2 pops per day, you’ll have your hunger under control and cravings in-check,” promises the company.

Flat Tummy Co didn’t immediately return HuffPost’s request for comment.

That comment on the screenshot is right, though. Her younger female fans are going to see this and beg their parents for these lollipops because they think they need them. That's extremely detrimental to a young girl's body image.

Appetite suppressants help with overeating though. They're not entirely bad. She didn't tell people to starve themselves.

Am I the only one who doesn't really see the problem? She's not telling you to starve yourself.

And why the hell does she even have so many followers?

I don't see the problem. She's not forcing anyone to buy them. She literally said "if" you want to get some to do it quickly because of the deal. Seems like people are attacking her for no reason. unsure.png

It says #ad before her post.

The thing with these sponsorships is that they tell you what to say and a time to post said ad.

I follow a few girls that were on the Bad Girls Club and two of them are sponsored by flat tummy tea. It's obvious they are ads. Now she's not saying "BUY THIS NOW TO LOOK LIKE ME" but rather trying to get $$$$ by doing an ad.

I thought it was something worse, like "fat-reducing pills!".

I don’t know what ingredients this lollipop has, but if you want a natural appetite suppressant you can take chia seeds (I don’t know if it’s the correct english name for it, but whatever go google it), it’s one of the most nutritious foods in nature, full of high quality protein, vitamins, minerals and fibers. And if you eat a spoon half hour before a meal (recommended ingestion before lunch and dinner) it will reduce your hunger and you’ll eat less and at the same time be healthier, because it’s 100% natural and ultra nutritious. Nutritionists recommend it. The only caution you have to take is to ingest two spoons of chia seeds per day, no more than it or it can be prejudicial to your health.

It doesn’t have taste and when mixed to a liquid it becomes a jelly making you feel full, you can put it on your salad too. It can be used as an ingredient in vegans recipes like vegan pudding.

I'm not going to say anything but I think it's more better to eat healthy and exercise daily than using those lollipops.
