Kim Kardashian Just Took Major Heat on Social Media For Promoting Flat Tummy Shakes

Kim Kardashian, the resident Instagram queen on #sponcon, is getting some major criticism for one of her most recent ads.

She posted this picture yesterday to promote Flat Tummy Co., a company that makes meal replacement shakes, and her followers went off in the comments about it.

#ad You guys all know I looove @flattummyco shakes. I've just restarted them (it's Day 2 today) and I’m already feeling so good. 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. 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. PS. I’m doing the chocolate program🍫

“This is extremely disappointing,” one commenter wrote. “A huge young female following… not an ideal post! It also seems to go against what I’d imagine your trainer would advise. Surely you can financial afford to avoid this gig 👎🏻” FYI, according to the Daily Mail, Flat Tummy Co. pays celebrities $200,000 per paid post.

Another commenter said, “Stop selling this garbage to us. Celebrate the fact that you work out and eat well.”

And another wrote, “Literally can’t believe you’re being paid, and willingly advertising a ‘shake’ that’s basically just laxatives towards an audience that is mainly young girls and boys. This is promoting weight loss in such an unhealthy way.”

In case you forgot, actress Jameela Jamil basically started an internet feud with Cardi B back in November by calling her out for promoting similar items.

They got Cardi B on the laxative nonsense “detox” tea. GOD I hope all these celebrities all shit their pants in public, the way the poor women who buy this nonsense upon their recommendation do. Not that they actually take this shit. They just flog it because they need MORE MONEY pic.twitter.com/OhmTjjWVOp

This is the first time Kim’s posted one of her Instagram ads since that Jameela/Cardi exchange happened, and her followers have obviously gotten annoyed with it. Some of them even tagged Jameela in the comments, asking her to step in.

Considering Jameela once called the Kardashian family “double agents of the patriarchy,” it seems like she’s very likely to say something. Stay tuned!
