Nicole Nafziger has been angering fans since she first appeared on 90 Day Fiancé. But it wasn’t until after the show that people really got fed up with Nafziger. Her constant posting of clickbait on social media has made fans call her out on more than one occasion. Now, the star is promoting a new weight loss app and people are concerned that she isn’t promoting the right message.
Nicole Nafziger’s relationship with Azan Tefou
Nafziger first appeared on season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé with Azan Tefou. The couple shocked fans with their relationship as they seemed to have little in common and Tefou did not seem extremely interested in Nafziger. After the show wrapped, Nafziger and Tefou called off their wedding, opting to open up a store in Morocco instead. Though Nafziger paid thousands of dollars toward the store’s opening, it never happened.
Nafziger and Tefou went years without seeing one another as Nafziger saved up money to go back to Morocco. When she finally did make it back, she got stuck there due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic making it extremely difficult to travel.
While she spent months in Morocco, fans called her out for leaving her daughter May behind. When fans began suggesting that it was easy to leave Morocco and that Nafziger was choosing to abandon her daughter, she finally clapped back.
“I’d like to know where they said that because every time I’ve looked into it, it’s [2-3 times] the price of a normal flight that the passenger has to pay,” she wrote to a fan in a comment. “Y’all think you’ve got it all figured out because of whatever you [hear], but [were] you one of the people who had to actually email the government to see? Nope. Stop judging my [life] and decisions. Just an idea. I know you won’t listen because it’s easier to pin me as a bad mom and gossip about the drama. Soon enough, y’all can take a [peek] into my real life. Maybe.”
What is Nicole selling now?
Nafziger’s Instagram account has gotten her in trouble before. She has posted clickbait about everything from breaking up with Tefou to being pregnant. Each time, fans have become increasingly upset with Nafziger and accused her of stooping too low for clicks. Now, Nafziger is promoting a weight loss app on her Instagram.
“#ad@flattummyapp must know my sweet tooth can get a little outta control (especially with loads of halloween candy in the house 🙈), but it’s helping me stay away from those treats!” she captioned a photo of herself in workout gear. “With the daily reminders to get my workouts in and all the healthy recipes to choose from, I’m feeling good! Get your first week for free and try this app with me.”
Nafizger has since turned the comments off on the post.
How is this potentially dangerous?
Flat Tummy has run into issues before with the detox teas that they often promote through celebrities and influencers, which have been found to have negative side effects.
Health magazine found that the light feeling that people get after drinking the teas is because the drinks “trigger a laxative effect, which causes your body to eliminate waste from your GI tract,” which means that though you will feel lighter, your fat ratio will remain the same.
According to the outlet, the teas have also been shown to” trigger excessive eating and weight gain and even slow metabolism, which can make it easier to gain weight even if you don’t eat extra calories.”
While the app is definitely different from the teas, it promises quick results and extreme weight loss just as the teas did. With Nafziger’s promotion of the app, it’s clear that the company is still largely using influencers and celebrities to sell their products, even though many of them have trainers and nutritionists who actually help them stay in shape.
