People Are Dragging Amber Rose For Promoting 'Flat Tummy Tea' While Pregnant

Celebrities have been criticized in the past for promoting dieting products on Instagram. Often, these products make ridiculous health claims, but with a celeb's endorsement, their followers often purchase these items.

Amber Rose is under fire for promoting one of these products, but fans were especially upset since she is currently pregnant. Her ad seemed to send the wrong message to other expecting moms.

Amber Rose is a model and outspoken advocate.

Besides appearing in major fashion campaigns and music videos, Amber also worked with SlutWalk to empower women who had been sexually harassed.

She's also a mom to her six-year-old son, Sebastian.

Sebastian's father is Amber's ex-husband, Wiz Khalifa. The couple split up in 2016. Amber has been dating Alexander Edwards, or "AE", since 2018.

In April, the couple announced they were expecting a baby with this photo of Amber at her ultrasound appointment.

So far, not too many details have been released about Amber's pregnancy or their newest addition. I wonder if Sebastian will get a new little brother or sister?

Prior to her pregnancy, Amber promoted Flat Tummy Tea on her Instagram account.

Flat Tummy Co. has recruited a number of celebrities and influencers to promote their products on Instagram. These teas claim to help with bloating and weight-loss.

Recently, Amber shared an Instagram ad for Flat Tummy's Organic Pregnancy Tea.

The tea claims to reduce bloating, nausea, and help digestion.

According to the product's website, "All our ingredients are USDA organic approved, and can definitely be consumed while pregnant, unless you have an intolerance to one of the ingredients."

Celebrities like Jameela Jamil quickly called out Amber for promoting Flat Tummy Tea while pregnant.

Actress Jameela Jamil has criticized the Kardashians for promoting similar products in the past. As a body-positive advocate, she believes these products contribute to eating disorders and other health problems.

One Twitter user noticed that the tea's website advises people to not use their products when pregnant or breastfeeding.

Hmmm.. definitely seems a little suspicious.

The pregnancy tea contains rooibos tea, ginger, rosehips, lemon balm, oatstraw and stevia. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should always consult with a doctor before taking any natural supplements as some can be toxic or cause complications.

On her Instagram account, many of Amber's fans were also upset with the ad.

Since Amber has been a champion of feminist and body-positive campaigns in the past, some thought she was abandoning her advocacy to promote this tea.

Others couldn't help but point out the irony of the product's name.

The company's name and branding definitely sends the wrong message to pregnant women, many of whom are probably already feeling anxious about their weight and changing bodies.
