Kim Kardashian may be sick, but at least she’s looking on the bright side…right? The E! star revealed on Twitter that she’s suffering from a bout of the flu, and even though she feels terrible, she’s happy about one thing: the fast weight loss that’s come along with it! That’s right, Kim took the time to let her fans know that while she’s feeling gross, she’s super stoked about the results. She’s now “#6lbsdown” before the all-important Oscars of fashion, the 2017 Met Gala. And while some fans took Kim’s tweet as a funny joke, others are not too happy with the reality star!
“The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown,” Kim tweeted. By “Met,” Kim is referring to the biggest fashion event of the year, the super exclusive Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1.
Some fans totally understood what Kim was saying. “I get what she’s saying though. I got food poisoning last week, lost 7 pounds…it was fierce,” one fan tweeted.
But others were not too happy with Kim’s comment: “People also die, from the flu…but glad you feeling better,” another person tweeted.
And some couldn’t help but laugh at Kim’s tweet. One follower pointed out that it was very similar to a line in the famous fashion film The Devil Wears Prada, when Emily Blunt’s character says, “I’m one stomach flu away from my goal weight.” Hollywood, meet real life.
Naturally, a major Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan went for the gold by tweeting a gif from the show. The gif shows Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian reminding her, in a not so subtle way, that people have way bigger issues to worry about. “Kim, there’s people that are dying,” the gif read.
