Kim Kardashian raised some eyebrows on social media after saying she'd be willing to eat anything if it made her look younger, even poop.

In an interview with The New York Times published Wednesday, the "Kardashians" star, 41, joked, "I'll try anything. If you told me that I literally had to eat poop every single day and I would look younger, I might. I just might."

Kardashian's comment received a mixed response on Twitter, with some suggesting that she embrace growing old instead of being afraid of aging.

"I'm in disbelief yo," one Twitter user commented, while another added, "Desperate."

"I don't doubt her one bit. Let's all remember the reason why she's infamous to begin with," a third person claimed, as another suggested, "Why not try it and see what happens?"

"In all seriousness, this is so unfortunate. Let’s normalize not being afraid to age and grow old. The only reason you would want to be young forever is if you’re not satisfied with life, and that's coming from someone so rich. Money [does not equal] happiness," another Twitter user wrote.

"She can’t accept that she’ll get old and wrinkly one day?? How sad. That's human nature," a different user commented.

Kardashian may have mentioned eating poop due to the rising popularity of fecal microbiota transplants. Scientists in England found that transplanting fecal microbiota from young mice into old mice can reverse hallmark signs of aging in the gut, eyes and brain, SciTech Daily reported.

"This ground-breaking study provides tantalizing evidence for the direct involvement of gut microbes in aging and the functional decline of brain function and vision and offers a potential solution in the form of gut microbe replacement therapy," said Simon Carding, from the University of East Anglia’s Norwich Medical School and head of the Gut Microbes and Health Research Programme at the Quadram Institute.

The Skims founder's comment came as she announced her new skincare line, Skkn by Kim, which launches later this month.

Kardashian said she developed the $630, nine-product set "from start to finish." The set includes a cleanser, a toner, an exfoliator, a hyaluronic acid serum, a vitamin C serum, a face cream, an eye cream, oil drops and a night oil.

"So many people want to act like they don't care about how they look," she told the New York Times. "I'm not acting like it comes easier or it's all natural. You just don't wake up and use whatever. You wake up, you use ingredients. The P.R.P. facials, stem cell facials, lasers – all of that is work."

Meanwhile, Kardashian recently shared how her boyfriend Pete Davidson has made it easier for her to embrace her natural self.

While discussing their relationship in a recent episode of Hulu's "The Kardashians," the beauty mogul admitted that their family is obsessed with skincare, but when she's with Davidson, she doesn't care if she has no makeup on, and it's a "refreshing feeling."
