Khloé K’s Instagram post has caused some serious controversy!

Although Kim Kardashian has long been an advocate for waist shapers and waist training, her younger sister Khloé shocked fans last night with her own post about the new craze.

Khloé posted a picture of herself kneeling on her bedroom floor with a waist shaper on, and followers were quick to slate her for setting a bad example to young fans.

The reality star captioned the picture, "I am obsessed with my new waist shaper from @premadonna87!!! …Snatching my waist and looking cute all at the same time!!! I definitely feel like a superhero… Head over to @pre_shop or @premadonna87 to get your shapers ladies! #Boom #Boom #Pow#WaistGang #PreMadonna87 #Snatched"

The photo didn't go down too well on Instagram, with one commenter writing, "such a bad example to set," and another saying, "Eeeek is this safe?" Others questioned if the shaper was healthy, with one follower writing, "Think this is going to be painful??"

Khloé has seriously slimmed down in recent months, but she hasn't exactly taken the healthiest approach. Before Christmas it was revealed that the 30-year-old was working out twice a day and sticking to a strict liquid diet, allowing herself solids only twice a week.

"Food has become her enemy," said a source told RadarOnline at the time. "She doesn’t seem to realize that she’s not doing her body any favours."

We hope Khloé starts taking a healthier attitude soon!
