Instagram apologized to Kim Kardashian for ‘mistakenly’ deleting her posts promoting ‘appetite suppressant’ lollipops
Kim Kardashian West is under fire for posting ad content on Instagram in which she promoted “appetite suppressant” lollipops, Flat Tummy Co.’s newest product.
She posted the same ad several times but it kept being deleted.
In a statement to INSIDER, a spokesperson for Instagram said they “mistakenly” deleted Kardashian West’s posts and has since apologized to her.
People still think the posts are triggering and upsetting.
Kardashian West seemingly attempted to diffuse the situation with a joke on Twitter.
For those of you who might have been too caught up in the great Yanny or Laurel debate to think about anything else on Wednesday, you missed a pretty busy day in the world of one Kim Kardashian West. The reality TV star is currently under fire for repeatedly posting an ad on Instagram in which she promoted “appetite suppressant” lollipops, Flat Tummy Co.’s newest product.
Kardashian West posted three versions of the same ad on Wednesday, but it was deleted each time. The original post, which she first shared on Tuesday night, is now back on Instagram — and a spokesperson for the social media brand told INSIDER that they didn’t mean to delete the posts in the first place.
“We mistakenly removed content we shouldn’t have and apologized to Kim for the inconvenience caused. We worked quickly to rectify the mistake as soon as we were made aware,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “The post has now been restored.”
Indeed, the sponsored content is back as it originally appeared.
