Farrah Abraham has hopped aboard Instagram’s Pillow Challenge trend. The former “Teen Mom OG” star follows in the footsteps of Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, with Farrah’s Sunday update coming as a video showing her strutting around in the nude – the 28-year-old did, however, abide by Instagram’s no-nudity rules, also having furnished a mini dress out of the Versace pillow being used.
Farrah clocked herself over 32,000 views in under 45 minutes – as ever, though, with this controversial MTV face, feedback proved mixed.
Seen below, Farrah’s video showed her home and in an elegant setting, backed by a grand piano – a fan quickly mentioned Farrah’s reflection here – plus wall hangings and a black couch. The Nebraska native was kitted out in the black-and-gold Versace pillow forming the challenge, also rocking a turban from the luxury Italian designer. A little preening and prep saw Farrah kick off seated, with the mom of one then parading around her look in high heels as she put a little sass into Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).”
The 2008 track playing in the background formed the impetus for Farrah writing: “BEING A SINGLE LADY” when a male voice asked: “What are you doing?”
Farrah is known for attracting the trolls over on her Instagram, with 11-year-old daughter Sophia largely being the focus amid racier updates that frequently see the star’s 2 million followers concerned for the way in which Sophia is being raised.
Replies today went down this route, also including both overall slamming and a decent amount of praise.
“I feel so bad for your daughter,” one fan wrote, adding that they could “see the camera height” – “I wouldn’t be surprised if she filmed this,” they added.
“The most dumbest thing ever,” another said.
One user seemed to have anticipated that near-immediate backlash is commonplace on the ex MTV face’s social media.
“I’ve seen a lot of people and popular ones doing this on tik tok. So let’s not jump on her just to do it ?,” they wrote.
“??? love this how fun!” another said.
Earlier this year, Farrah was savagely slammed, herself saying she felt “sex shamed” for a lingerie yacht video that saw daughter Sophia present. More recently, joined masked outings have had fans suggesting Farrah to be making light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Updates from Farrah have also included a giant nod to coronavirus, from elbow-pumping with neighbors through to the kick-off as Farrah bought “like, 20 bottles of Lysol” during a filmed, and somewhat exaggerated grocery store run. Paparazzi photos of Farrah and Sophia riding scooters through L.A. streets in twinning masks and gloves largely proved ill-received – likewise, a video shouting out hit Netflix show “Tiger King.”
It was Farrah wishing coronavirus on her own fans that really seemed to push it for fans, though. After a user warned of their Michigan governor advising against “frolicking” around in public, Farrah fired back:
“You’re disgusting evil, get off my page and I’m sure coronavirus will find you at your house evil hater keep hating legit that’s your virus.”
