Kim Kardashian West suffers weight due to illness

Her latest tweet has caused controversy as she suggested the flu was a quick way to drop a dress size in time for the Met Ball, taking place in NY next month, and the post has seriously pissed people off.

Kardashian West doesn't always rely on such peculiar diets, though. Unfortunately, her weight loss secret probably isn't one you'll be dying to try at home... She took heat. and then took the tweet down.

Naturally, the stars want to look their best for the occasion - especially Ms Kim Kardashian, who has become a regular at the gala every year.

Seems like Kanye West's recklessness on Twitter rubbed off on Kim for this one.

The 36-year-old took to Twitter early Wednesday morning, writing, "The flu can be an fantastic diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown", she wrote.

Despite her seemingly divine appearance at the event, it was evident that she was already starting her bout with the Flu. "But I wonder why eating disorders are so common". Following her tweet stating that the flu was a great way to shed off some weight, Kim Kardashian soon found herself under fire courtesy of her followers.

Generally, whenever Kim Kardashian takes to Twitter you can be sure that thousands of people will comment.
