We’re barely more than a week into 2020 and Khloé Kardashian is already being dragged on social media for promoting “harmful” weight loss products.

However, this time around, Khloé took a slightly different route in promoting the products, admitting to using a personal trainer and nutritionist in the ad before promising that “these shakes work”.

In the past, Khloé has been criticised for promoting weight loss products but not acknowledging the benefits of her wealth and privilege, such as having a personal trainer and nutritionist.

It was fair to say that some people were just a little confused about the post and they weren’t exactly shy about voicing it.

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 🙄

Others criticised Khloé for promoting what they called a “harmful” weight loss product that “contributes to eating disorder culture”.

What about the girls crying in their bathrooms with diarrhoea because of these products? The people in hospital due to dehydration using these products? People with weakened colons? Gross as fuck

Some went as far as to question why Khloé and the Kardashians don’t feel the need to “publicise charity” but are happy to promote an “unhealthy” weight loss product instead.

weight loss  weightloss  weight loss programs  weight loss foods  weight loss tips @khloekardashian @FlatTummyCo 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

In fact, one look at the responses to Khloé’s tweet showed that the criticism was basically endless.

Khloé has yet to comment on the backlash. However, days before her tweet, she posted a picture from the gym and used her caption to promote taking “baby steps” when it comes to health and fitness.
