Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is the latest Hollywood star to slam influencers for promoting unhealthy products on social media and setting ridiculous standards for beauty.
Turner took to Instagram and shared a filtered shot of herself with enhanced rosy cheeks and enlarged lips. The 23-year-old said: “Today I just wanted to promote this new powdered stuff that you put in your teeth, and basically it makes you sh*t your brains out and is totally really really bad for me to be promoting to young women and young people everywhere. But I don’t really give a f*ck because I’m getting paid money. Influencer life!”
This comes a month after Instagram rolled out stricter rules regarding weight loss products or cosmetic procedures. Under the new rules, if a post promotes something with a price tag affixed to it, viewers younger than 18 would be prohibited from viewing the post. They are also banning content promising over-the-top “miraculous” transformations.
Jameela Jamil, who has been very critical, helped Instagram craft the new policy.
