This story is a bit confusing to me. Tammy Hembrow who has 10.5 Million Followers on Instagram is getting slammed online for posting a picture of herself in a wet T-Shirt and saying that 100% of the profits from her swim-suit line she’s part of will go towards Australian wildfire relief. Here’s more of the story:
Source: Instagram fitness star Tammy Hembrow uploaded but quickly deleted a photo of her in a swimsuit and wet T-shirt after she was accused of striking the wrong tone.
In the caption, she said she was donating 100% of the profits of her Saski Collection clothing line to emergency relief for the Australian bushfires. But some people thought it was a bit tone-deaf to promote fundraising efforts with a see-through top.
Here’s the photo in question:
Hembrow deleted the photo and temporarily deactivated her Instagram account as a result of the negative comments, according to Australian news site The Daily Telegraph.
Hembrow reactivated her account to reiterate that she would donate her profits by posting a heartbreaking video of a koala.
Just a couple of thoughts here. Am I missing something? Or did Tammy do nothing wrong here? I mean technically she could have tried raising money without posting a picture that was seductive. But ummm who cares? It sells. But this is 2020 we live in a world where everyone critiques everything. And honestly, she’s raising money for a great cause and pushing her bikini line and doing it all on brand! So good for her. If you have a probably with it. Go punch sand. Oh and here’s some photos of Tammy:
