The Twitter police came for Kim Kardashian!

She took to social media on Wednesday, April 19 to dish about her new weight loss tip — and even though it seemed to be a joke, she still got a ton of backlash and had to delete the tweet.

“The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol,” she wrote, revealing that she lost six pounds because of the viral infection.

But even though the flu is pretty common, some cases of influenza can lead to death. Twitter users slammed Kim for joking about the illness and suggesting that women should use unhealthy techniques in order to lose weight.

“So the key to being skinny is starving, got it,” one fan wrote, and another said, “Can you please stop with this? Illness is not a way to get slim.”

But even though she didn’t mean to joke about something so serious, Kim is still obviously looking forward to attending the 2017 Met Gala next month. The super-exclusive event is only for the fashion elite — and Kim didn’t even get an invite until four years ago, where she made her debut wearing a dress that inspired a ton of memes!

She walked the red carpet in 2013 for the museum’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme in a custom Givenchy gown featuring an all-over floral print — and many people pointed out that the ensemble made her look like a couch. Social media users made mean-spirited jokes about the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who was pregnant with her daughter North at the time.

But it’s safe to say that Kim is definitely stepping up her game for this year’s event — and she’ll probably stay true to her signature sexy style, especially because she’s the tiniest she’s been since giving birth to her son Saint 16 months ago.
