Kim Kardashian was met with some criticism when she suggested she’d lost weight thanks to a “flu diet”.
The reality beauty took to Twitter to celebrate her 6lb weight loss, but angered some fans in the process.
She posted on the site, saying: “The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown”
But what was probably intended as a light-hearted tweet, upset a few people.
One person commented: “People die from the flu Kim, it’s not a diet”
Another wrote: “Really into this new fad diet kim k is talking about called “the flu””
“Hopefully i get the flu so i can lose weight like kim kardashian,” said another.
But others felt people were being too sensitive.
One person said: “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”
Another wrote: “omg… it was a joke!!! everyone knows it s not a diet!!!! lol it s just being sick! god we can t say anything anymore!!!” [sic]
“flu got me like…”
“THE FLU IS NOT A DIET STOP!!!!” wrote one fan.
While another asked: “Girl why did u delete the iconic flu tweet?”
