Kim Kardashian Joked About the Flu Helping Her Lose Weight, But Twitter Wasn't Laughing

The Kardashians promote diet hacks and workout routines often, but Kim Kardashian West went a little too far this time. On Wednesday morning, she took to Twitter to document her recent weight loss. Apparently she's lost six pounds from having the flu, and the slim down came at the perfect time. "The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown," Kim wrote.

Of course, Twitter was not happy. The tweet was deleted but not before users could call Kim K. out for her insensitivity. People reminded her that the flu is not a new diet trend but, in reality, a life-threatening illness.

The reality star probably didn't mean any harm, but some users pointed out that her young fans may get the wrong idea.

Kim is back on Twitter flaunting her flu figure, so I'm not really sure she got the message. 

Guess we won't know until she sends out her next tweet, huh?
