Instagram issues an apology to Kim Kardashian and her following after deleting her post on the platform.
but it gets a little more complicated than that..
Just the other day Kim Kardashian posted a #ad on her Instagram promoting a new type of weight loss aid. An appetite suppressant lollipop from Flat Tummy Tea.., which it turns out was a huge mistake.
A huge backlash from her following ensued, tons of people from all over social mediaverse were pulling no punches when it came really telling Kim how they feel. Some fans thought it was a dangerous ad for those with eating disorders, while others found it to be an insulting message that basically tells women the only important thing about them is how much they weigh. — Twitters words, not mine. —
So only a few hours after all of this backlash, Instagram or Instagrams algorithm deleted the post… but then they put it back up again.. And apologized.
“We mistakenly removed content we shouldn’t have and apologized to Kim for the inconvenience caused,” a rep for Instagram told Buzzfeed news. And as far as Kim K and Flat Tummy Tea goes.. They declined to comment. Even Jameela Jamil from the Good Place weighed in with her thoughts on twitter. She said “maybe don’t take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful. And to play with your kids. And to have fun with your friends. And to have something to say about your life at the end, other than “i had a flat stomach.”
And if you go on twitter, you will find much.. Much meaner things. So on second thought, maybe stay away from twitter.
What do you think of all of this Drama, is this just another day in internet land? Or did Kim cross a line here with this ad?
