Scroll through any of the KarJenner clan’s Instagram accounts and amongst the sexy selfies, inspirational quotes, and adorable pics of their children are the inevitable sponsored product posts spruiking everything from diet teas and appetite-suppressant lollipops to meal replacement shakes to their hundreds of millions of followers on Instagram.
It’s these so-called weight-loss products (or, you know, scams) in particular that Good Place actress and body positivity activist Jameela Jamil has called the Kardashians out for, labelling them “terrible and toxic influence on young girls”.

In an interview with the New York Times, Khloe and Kim Kardashian defended their sponsored posts on social media, saying they only endorse products that they actually use. Kim also noted it was the financially-savvy option, especially as it allows her to be close to her family while making money.
“If there is work that is really easy that doesn’t take away from our kids, that’s like a huge priority, if someone was faced with the same job opportunities, I think they would maybe consider,” Kim said. “You’re going to get backlash for almost everything so as long as you like it or believe in it or it’s worth it financially, whatever your decision may be, as long as you’re okay with that.”
And now Kris Jenner has shared roughly how much the KarJenner family make from these sponsored posts.
