Kim Kardashian Faces Backlash For Saying 'The Flu Diet' Helped Her Lose 6lbs
While there's no doubt Kim Kardashian is looking incredible at the moment, she's now taking a bit of heat for claiming the 'flu diet' is an effective way to shift any unwanted weight.
Opening up about how being ill has helped her lose 6lbs in time for the Met Gala, she tweeted: "The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown"
Even though it was definitely *intended* to be light-hearted, some fans have slammed the message as being insensitive after pointing out that flu is a serious business and can actually kill people.
"Really into this new fad diet kim k is talking about called 'the flu'" one wrote, while another added: "Hopefully I get the flu so I can lose weight like kim kardashian."
But it wasn't all criticism, with another user saying people should stop "crying" and learn how to take a joke: "Kim Kardashian said the flu is a good diet, as a joke, because she lost weight from it, and people are crying. The world is so sensitive."
