Farrah Abraham’s Followers Are Appalled She Compared Her Hardships to Those Who Have ‘Cancer’ or ‘a Daily Disability’
From Jenelle Evans to Amber Portwood, there are plenty of Teen Mom stars who’ve caused a major scene over the years — and it’s almost easy to forget that Farrah Abraham was one of them. Farrah first attained reality TV fame through MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, and her time on Teen Mom OG solidified her standing as one of the most dramatic stars of the show ever. While she’s no longer associated with the series, she and her 10-year-old daughter, Sophia, still have a major following on Instagram.
From Farrah’s parenting tactics to her controversial Instagram posts about plastic surgery, the star’s followers always have something they’re unhappy with on her social media. And Farrah’s post comparing the hardships of a reality star to someone with terminal illness really didn’t go over well.
Farrah Abraham causes major controversy on Instagram
Farrah’s made it known she’s posting whatever she wants whenever she wants on Instagram — and that goes for her daughter’s social media, too. The Teen Mom OG star frequently posts all about the lavish vacations she takes with Sophia despite fans begging her to allow Sophia to spend time with kids her own age. Not only that, but Farrah also posts all about her plastic surgery procedures, which gets her a lot of negative attention.
It seems some of the negativity on her Instagram is catching up with her, too. Farrah’s seen a massive drop in the number of followers she has on the ‘gram. Back in October, the star had over 2.21 million followers on the social media platform, but she now only has 2.1 million.
As for Sophia, the child has 689,000 followers on Instagram, too. Perhaps if Farrah’s followers all jump ship, she’s still relying on her daughter for influencer income.
She recently posted a barely-coherent message about a recent event she attended
Farrah and Sophia recently attended the American Influencer Awards, and Farrah wrote all about how thankful she is to be part of the special night on Instagram. Within the caption of the post, Farrah explained the difficulties of raising her daughter — but the message was jumbled and difficult to piece together.
“As a single parent I know how hard it is when our kids start wanting to explore makeup, shave their legs, wax their brow ,want to start wearing braws , use deodorant,curiosity and puberty start,” Farrah captioned the post. “Thats why I’m greatfull and thankful we stand together so she knows I don’t judge her like the world may.”
The proud mom then went on to explain that she “loved” how the “awards focused on those who may be going through cancer or may have a daily disability.” She then wrote that this is similar to the difficulties that celebrities, designers, and bloggers go through. Farrah continued, “we all share that we put our lives out in the public for the greater good and this continues to make a great social change and economy for us all from civil rights and liberties and many more social impacts.”
Farrah’s followers think her post is totally insensitive
Farrah may have attempted to sound sincere in her post, but her followers were unimpressed by the incoherent caption. Not only that, but they were also appalled that she would compare those with terminal illnesses or disabilities to the struggles that celebrities or influencers go through.
“This entire paragraph is one long incoherent sentence. Are you seriously comparing the ‘struggles’ of your fake celebrity with the struggles of someone with cancer or a disability?” one follower wrote. “I mean, we all agree you definitely have some sort of disability, but that’s such a shallow and insensitive thing to say.”
Another commented, “At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.”
Yet another wrote, “From ‘braws’ to cancer to the greater good to civil rights. What a mish-mosh of a whole lotta nothing. Someone needs to step in and get her help.”
Like the rest of the negative comments on Farrah’s Instagram, we’re sure she’ll pay them no mind and continue on with her posts!
