Just because we’re all staying inside doesn’t mean reality stars are going to all of a sudden stop being influencers.

Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry took to Instagram recently to post an ad for an online grocery shopping service (which, if you’re going to be selling anything online right now, that’s a pretty good service to advertise).

Kailyn Lowry’s Instagram post that spurred an argument

“Since we’re stuck inside for a bit, the boys and I decided to order some of our favorite foods & snacks to be sure we’re all stocked up! 🧃
Online grocery shopping is convenient and a great way to stay safe. And the @fetchrewards app makes it super easy to save on online purchases when you connect your email and/or Amazon accounts. 🛒
Now I can just tap a button and earn points to redeem for gift cards to some of my favorite places to shop – first up, an Amazon gift card!” she captioned the post.

The photo shows a stocked kitchen with food all over Lowry’s island. There are snacks like chips, bagels, granola bars, Eggo waffles, and Sour Patch Kids.

Lowry’s no stranger to online criticism. Ever since she first began appearing on 16 and Pregnant she’s received negative online messages. This particular post seemed to receive more than usual.

“Just [GMO] foods…🤮 for real please for your boys. They need real foods not just transformation foods,” wrote one Instagram user on the post.

“All I see is sugar 🤔” wrote another.

“Holy processed foods!” commented another.

“All food that is processed and has artificial flavors and colors….horrible for ur health,” wrote another.

While Lowry received a lot of flak for her online grocery haul, she also received some support from fans.

“Everyone is pitching a fit over the food. Calm down Susan . Guess what , in my fridge we have lunchables and Snapple and we’ve got ice cream and In the cupboard I’ve got cake mix and frosting and marshmallows. If I can get my kid to eat some veggies for dinner it’s a win at this point I’m trying to stay sane. She ate little bites mini muffins for breakfast. Yesterday was s’mores cereal guess what though she doesn’t eat it all in 1 day. No parent of the year awards are being presented this month, sit down,” wrote one fan in Lowry’s defense.

“Who gives a f*ck what she ordered her kids are eating that’s all that matters. I dont understand why anyone even comments yet alone follows her to be rude jesus christ. I never comment on celebrities post but sh*t why attack someone for buying sh*t for their kid?” commented another.

Kailyn Lowry’s other controversial social media post as of late

This isn’t the first controversial social media post Lowry’s posted since Americans were advised to start self-isolating. On April 2, Lowry responded to a tweet about whether she’d get a coronavirus vaccine.

“Absolutely not,” she wrote, which caused an uproar.
