Kim Kardashian loses 21 pounds, and people criticize her for doing so in a 'unhealthy' way

Fans might be wondering why 'Kim, people are dying!' is once again a trending topic on Twitter.

Kim Kardashian, who is 41 years old, is getting flak online for continuing to talk about how quickly she has lost weight.

She used to get in trouble for bragging that she lost 16 pounds in three weeks so that she could fit into Marilyn Monroe's famous bedazzled dress.

This week, the reality TV star showed up on "Today" and said that she has lost 21 pounds since the Met Gala.

"I looked at it like a role. I wanted to wear this dress so much. I really cared about it. It taught me a lot about my lifestyle and my health, and since then, I've continued to eat really healthy," the Hulu reality star told Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb on "Today."

Kardashian said she is happy with how her health has changed, but she doesn't want to lose any more weight.

"I feel stronger than ever. I gave up a lot of sugar. I used to eat a lot of junk food. I didn't even realize it. A lot of food that is fried. And I changed my whole way of life," she said.

Kardashian had previously said that she had stopped eating sugar and carbs for "almost a month." However, she was criticized by people like actress Lili Reinhart, who said that it is "disgusting" for famous people to admit to "starving" themselves because of how much power they have.

Kardashian has tried to make her critics happy by comparing her change to the work of actors like Christian Bale and saying that she just started eating healthier, but they are still not happy.

"I wasn't telling everyone, 'Hey, why don't you all go lose this weight quickly?'

'" Kardashian said. "I thought, 'Well, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role, so it's fine.' Even Renée Zellweger put on weight for a role. It doesn't matter to me."

People on Twitter have a lot to say about the phrase "people are dying," which was first used by sister Kourtney in a classic "Keeping Up" episode. A representative for Kardashian did not respond to The Post's request for comment on the phrase.

In response to a headline about Kardashian's continued weight loss, Twitter user @barbscass said, "As someone who has had an eating disorder for most of her life and whose body dysmorphia is still ruining her life, I think this family needs serious help."

The celebrity has since continued to tout her continued weight loss, updating fans that she has now lost a total of 21 pounds in two weeks with her restrictive diet.

“Literally? Like losing 21lbs in two months is not healthy or sustainable,” she continued.

@LeciaMichelle11 wrote: “I wish people would stop reporting on Kim Kardashian’s weight loss and ignoring the fact that she’s augmented pretty much every part of her body to the point where she barely looks human.”

“I hate Kim Kardashian even more for promoting her f–king restrictive diet and thinking there’s nothing wrong with it. If you look her up the first thing that pops up is ‘weight loss diet’ and it’s terrifying,” @ddollfacedd said.

"Stop giving people like her a platform and a lot of attention so they can spread such unhealthy ways of living!" @castamere24 begged.

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences says that between 5 and 10 million women in the United States have eating disorders. Nearly half of girls with low self-esteem said in the Dove Global Girls Beauty and Confidence Report that they try hard to look like models and celebrities.

Many have taken to social media to express their disgust at Kardashian’s promotion of her unhealthy and “toxic lifestyle,” noting the influence she has on her fans.

Kardashian's personal trainer stepped in to defend her, saying that the star's quick weight loss was done in a "healthy way," and Kardashian herself still stands by the disputed claim.

Kardashian also said on "Today" that she was only walking on the red carpet in the famous dress for about 3 minutes. She said that she wore a robe to the Met and changed at the bottom of the stairs and at the top of the stairs.

The star has gotten a lot of flak for wearing the historic dress, which many people have said belongs in a museum. Some even say that Kardashian ruined the dress in the short time she wore it, which made people even more angry.

Even though she has been criticized a lot since the Met Gala, which happened almost two months ago, Kardashian keeps moving forward.
