We’re presently more than a week in 2020, and Khloé Kardashian is already being pulled on social media for advertising “dangerous” weight loss products.
This isn’t specifically new area — Khloé and the others Kardashian/Jenner siblings have encountered backlash several occasions over their option to promote products similar to meal alternative and appetite-suppressing candies.
THESE SHAKES DO NOT WORK. @khloekardashian please stop the false advertising. This can be very harmful to people who've gone through ED like myself thanks! @FlatTummyCo your product is doing more harm than good.— Kenidra4Humanity (@KenidraRWoods_) January 8, 2020
I honestly want to know how does that drink flatten your tummy? Literally how? Without working out And eating better, how will it flatten a fat belly? I seriously want to know.— Kackalacky Kova (@dekovaelaine) January 8, 2020
On the other hand, Khloé used a distinct path in promoting the products, admitting to using a nutritionist and private coach in the ad before engaging that “these product work.”
Historycally, Khloé, all the time, criticized for supporting weight loss products without confirming the goods of her privilege and wealth, such as having a nutritionist and private coach.
It was right to state that some people did get a little mistake of the post, and they weren’t specifically shy about telling it.
#ad Ok… I’ve posted with @flattummyco’s Shakes in the past and YES, I also use a personal trainer and nutritionist, but THESE SHAKES WORK to help get your tummy back to flat. Trust me you guys… Go get 25% off the same Shakes I drink 💕 https://t.co/VP4LdcEK7l pic.twitter.com/KuAlwxbp0N— Khloé (@khloekardashian) January 8, 2020
A lot of people criticised Khloé for supporting whatever people call a “dangerous” weight loss product that “gives an eating disturbance”.
if you have a nutritionist and a personal trainer then what do these shakes add? pic.twitter.com/HEOx9PIBAz— 𝒞𝒽𝑒𝓇𝓇𝒾 🤍 (@CherriVENUS) January 8, 2020
Others ask the question of why the Kardashians and specifically Khloé don’t consider the call of “publicize charity” yet are comfortable to promote a “harmful” weight loss product rather.
All this is, is a laxative. Promoting these products is disgusting, they are so unhealthy and push the idea that being skinny is essential. Aside from that, people are literally dying. Apparently you and your fam don't publicise "charity", but can publicise this?— Becca. (@swiftlypastel) January 8, 2020
In reality, one examines the answers to Khloé’s tweet revealed that the critique was essentially infinite.
“Trust me” “these shakes work” “same shakes i drink” “but i also use a personal trainer & nutritionist”. Nothing adds up… how can u even tell it’s the shakes, when it’s probs the trainer and nutritionist anyway?! Report back after doing JUST the shakes for a few months 🙄— Prathibha S.

This is why im just cutting out this family out. Like not buying any of their shit anymore.— Angry Canadian (@__AngryCanadian) January 9, 2020
Khloé did not comment on the reaction. But before her tweet, Khloé published a picture of the gym and write a caption to encourage buying “baby steps” when it’s about fitness and health.
