KEY POINTS

  • Many slammed her for promoting a weight loss product that doesn’t seem to work
  • Some fans encouraged Mama June not to mind the negative comments

Mama June Shannon did not get the response she hoped for when she posted an update on her weight loss challenge.

A week after she came back to Instagram, the 42-year-old reality star posted an update on her 7-day weight loss challenge with a product she’s endorsing. Mama June shared a selfie she took in front of her bathroom mirror to showcase her supposed body transformation. 

In the snap, Mama June flashed a big smile as she held her phone in one hand and a box of Boombod Weight Loss Shot Drink in the other. The controversial matriarch folded her shirt up, so her belly would be visible in the frame. 

“Sticking with my @boombod program. Mama June’s been using these shots for a while now, and whenever I’m trying to get my cravings down these really do help! They keep me feeling full and snacking way less after dinner,” she wrote in the caption.

Unfortunately for Mama June, many of her fans were not buying it. They called out Honey Boo Boo’s mom for promoting a product that they said didn’t work. They also pointed out that her weight did not improve despite using the product, as seen in the photo.

“Don’t look like they’re helping,” one wrote. 

“They’re not working, maybe try exercising and eating less,” added another. 

“And they don’t work,” a third user commented. 

However, some still wished Mama June luck on her weight loss challenge and encouraged her not to mind the negative comments. 

“Hoping luck for you with this product,” a fan stated.

“You’re beautiful! Keep it up, JuneBug,” another wrote. 

“Forget the haters, live life to the fullest, stay positive, be kind [and] you got this mama,” a different fan added. 

When the “Mama June: From Not To Hot” star officially returned to Instagram last week, she was slammed for promoting the weight loss drink. Several pointed out that she’s been advertising the product for years, but she has yet to achieve the results it promises. 

“You’ve been saying this for how long… please,” one stated. 

“We all know this [doesn’t] work lol. Y’all been promoting this for years and haven’t lost weight,” another wrote. 

Mama June started promoting Boombod in 2020. At the time, she claimed that the product would help fans get energized, motivated and rejuvenated while losing weight. 

Despite the negativity, some of her fans understood that the reality star was doing her best to earn money while there was still no word on the renewal of her family’s We TV series

“But in all honesty, we should not be attacking her, she’s going to do whatever she has to do to pay her bills,” one fan pointed out.
