Kim Kardashian Is Slammed For Saying ‘Flu Can Be An Amazing Diet’

The 36-year-old sent an ill-advised Tweet earlier today...

Kim Kardashian has landed herself in hot water over a Tweet about losing weight.

It seems the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been feeling under the weather recently, revealing to fans earlier today that she’s been suffering from the flu.

Pretty rubbish, right? But Kim’s looking on the bright side – and that’s what’s got her into trouble.

She told her Twitter followers: ‘The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown [sic].’

Hmm. Some were a little concerned about the way the message could be interpreted, with replies including: ‘Now imagine saying that to your daughter after she gets sick…’ and: ‘You’re aware of the amount of people that follow you/are inspired by you, right? lots of them being impressionable young people?’

Others wrote: ‘Is she seriously advocating young girls to get the flu?’ and: ‘People also die, from the flu…but glad you feeling better [sic].’

Now, while it may not have been the most thought-through joke, we’re sure Kim was only joking. And plenty have since defended her, with one fan responding: ‘I’m in love with the fact that people don’t understand your humor. It’s shallow humor, but still… this is a joke people [sic].’

She also received a number of kind comments wishing her well. One reads: ‘Hope you feel better soon! 🤒❤️,’ while another says: ‘Feel better soon ♥️.’

We’re echoing these thoughts, lady. But maybe double check your Tweet before posting next time, eh?
