(CBS SF/AP) – Reality TV/Adult Film star Farrah Abraham has received backlash after putting up an Instagram picture that appeared to show her 7-year-old daughter drinking a weight-loss tea.
The post-Halloween selfie posted on November 1 showed the 25-year-old star of MTV’s “Teen Mom” holding a packet of a tea she promotes next to her daughter, who appears to be drinking from a cup. In the caption she noted it was teatime for the mother and daughter “after all that candy.”READ MORE: Contra Costa County To Pay $4.9M Settlement In Police Killing Of Laudemer ArboledaStretch Of Highway 1 Near Big Sur Likely Closed For A Week Due To Rockslide Following Storm
The post was quickly met with criticism from commenters. Many derided her daughter for what appeared to be a weight loss drink.
Abraham later said the picture isn’t what it looks like. She tells Us Weekly that her daughter had strawberry milk in the cup, but wanted “to take a pic like that.”
