You won't believe this

By their very nature, the Kardashians often find themselves under a lot of scrutiny but after the Kim Kardashian robbery took place, it seemed like Kim had taken to living a more downplayed life. She even got involved in politics (kind of) when she shut down Donald Trump on Twitter with this repost.

But, now, the reality star is under fire again after saying she lost six pounds... to the flu.

Yup. She Tweeted 'The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown'

She's since taken down the Tweet following a haul of responses calling her irresponsible for advertising illness as a fad diet and for being a bad example for her younger and more susceptible audience.

The 36-year-old also made reference to getting to her desired weight before the Met Gala ball in New York.

She did, however, keep this Tweet up still referencing her flu, although we have to admit that we don't actually get it. (Do you?)

Kim, maybe you should try fighting the flu with this superfood recipe next time?

Fans have accused her of making light of an illness and for advertising a harmful weight-loss technique, but in all fairness to her, we have been guilty of saying it - but that's usually just to your colleagues and not to the whole world...
