Just one day after Kim Kardashian was called “toxic” and “terrible” for promoting Flat Tummy Tea’s new weight loss lollipops, Teen Mom stars Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans are getting slammed by fans for endorsing the appetite suppressant suckers. Dubbed “bad moms” by their followers for promoting the controversial candy when they have daughters at home, the reality stars were urged to take down the ad just like Kim.
“This is disgusting. you have so many young women following you, that by you supporting these, you are feeding into the idea that starving yourself is fine,” one concerned fan wrote on Farrah’s page before another added, “Please god tell me you don’t let your daughter use these! Why advertise sweets/candy that promotes weight loss! Disgusting.” The same types of comments were on Jenelle’s account as well.
“That’s a good thing to show your daughter.. ‘eat these lollipops and you won’t be fat,'” one follower sarcastically wrote. Another pointed out, “Disgusting example of a mother and a woman. A proper diet and exercise is what you should be [promoting]… not something to make you feel full.” Yikes.
Previously, Kim also shared an image of herself sucking on the weight loss pops — but quickly took it down after receiving backlash. The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil was a very vocal critic of the KUWTK star’s decision to promote the dangerous fad to her millions of social media followers. “No. F–k off. No. You terrible and toxic influence on young girls,” Jameela wrote on Twitter. “I admire their mother’s branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius, however, this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to.”

It seems Farrah, who was recently fired from the MTV series, and Jenelle, whose husband was also let go from the network, are more focused on their paychecks than being good role models. Love Teen Mom? Be sure to join our Teen Mom Facebook group to chat about all the latest updates and juicy gossip!
