Okay ‘Teen Mom OG’ fans, are you ready for this? Farrah Abraham is being attacked on Instagram for posting a controversial pic of her 7-year-old daughter, Sophia, ‘drinking’ weight-loss tea. Yikes!
Farrah Abraham, 25, was totally blasted on Nov. 1 after posting a pic which shows little Sophia, 7, drinking what appears to be detox tea out of a to-go tumbler. “Teatime @flattummytea @sophialabraham & I – after all that candy 👻,” the Teen Mom OG star captioned the pic she posted of her and her daughter the day after Halloween.
Flat Tummy Tea does contain laxatives and promises to “help reduce bloating, support your metabolism and increase energy to help flatten your tummy!” according to the packaging and website. The website also says, “these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.” And, boy, did seeing the tiny girl appear to sip the weight-loss drink infuriate Farrah’s followers.
“Please tell me that you’re not giving this garbage tea to your daughter! It’s a laxative!” wrote one Instagrammer. “Girlfriend you need to grow up and seek help. Please try your hardest not to mentally scar your daughter at such a young age,” another angry user said. “Please don’t give her that tea..it’s not designed for children. They’re bodies can’t handle it. People need to go through psychological evaluation before they can be allowed to have children!” commented another upset follower.
It is concerning to think that Farrah would give her daughter a tea that works like a laxative when she’s just a small child. But luckily, that wasn’t the case. According to the MTV star, Sophia didn’t actually drink the tea. “She has strawberry milk and I have my tea,” Farrah told Us Weekly. “She wanted to take a pic like that, so no, my daughter does not have tea in her cup.” Phew.
HollywoodLifers, do you think it was appropriate for Farrah to let Sophia pose like she was drinking the detox tea? Let us know below!
