With 6.3 million Instagram followers, Angela Simmons likely netted some decent cash from her latest Instagram post. The “Growing Up Hip-Hop” star took to the platform this week with a paid partnership for Flat Tummy App – while some celebs promoting the brand have faced major backlash, Angela managed to escape the slamming.
A side-by-side photo showed Angela, 32, posing in selfie mode in black-and-white print leggings, a cropped black tee, and sneakers. The star was toying with her hair in the first photo, but the second showed her tugging down at her pants to reveal the “flat tummy” that she wanted fans to see.
A caption from Angela mentioned the app that she was promoting, alongside some motivating thoughts.
“#ad Don’t be focused with the weight on the scale.. @flattummyapp knows it’s all about how you feel ? All you gotta do is put in the work, eat right and the rest will take care of itself. I love using this app when time is tight and I need to get in a workout anywhere, anytime! Join me on this app and start your 7 day FREE trial today,” she wrote.
Angela’s fans have been commenting.
“You worked hard for it … Keep them sexy *ss pictures [coming], ❤️” one fan wrote.
“You done slimmed up, love the new look beautiful ma,” another said.
“That scale is the devil, I swear” came from a fan who’d clearly read the caption.
“You are my body goals. Heck if Britney Spears can bring it back so can I!!!” was another comment.
Angela has, indeed, been looking smoking hot lately. The star’s Instagram doesn’t require much scrolling for the grueling workout videos.
Flat Tummy Co. does rely on its celebrity faces, but it doesn’t always go well. 2019 saw Khloe Kardashian forced to delete her Instagram promo for the brand. The 35-year-old did, however, make headlines just yesterday for a new Flat Tummy Co. promo – again, it was slammed.
“The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil has shown zero tolerance for Khloe’s weight loss promos since day one. Yesterday, she called the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star “poor.”
Also slammed has been “Teen Mom 2” star Leah’s Messer’s recent promo for Flat Tummy App.
Earnings on Instagram correlate with following. As Vox explains, you can earn some serious dough once you’ve got the fanbase.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post! Especially if the content is on Youtube and the influencer is in the gaming industry.”
Angela may still have her feud with Romeo Miller to chew over, but it didn’t look like she got any heat for this ad. If you’ve got thoughts on celebs promoting weight loss products, though, we’d love to hear them.
