To think it's inappropriate to use this term?

I picked up a pack of Bleach London bleaching kit and a couple of cream dyes in Boots today.
Was just looking at the back of the bleaching kit pack and it says it's for " blondorexics and casual bleach dabblers".
AIBU to think that's a really inappropriate bastardisation of anorexics, in this context? It's such a serious disease, I don't claim to be any kind of expert on the terminology but it seems very 'pro ana' and disrespectful of sufferers.
If IANBU how should I word my complaint to the company?

Oh God, I can't believe I'm about to write this, but YANBU. I know that some of you will think I"m being a precious arse, but I'm not and I don't have any form for being a precious arse.
I did have have anorexia for years in my 20's, and yes, I find that made-up word triggering. There, I've said it.
Kate Moss said something years ago about always being 'a bit 'rexy' which I also found triggering.
I know that grammatically it doesn't make sense. I realise that it shouldn't make sense. But it's triggering for me.
Not saying it should be banned, as thankfully it won't bother most people, but YANBU to have clocked it, basically.
