Never come for Jennifer Hudson about her weight loss.
The usually chill singer and actress wasn’t here for a fan’s recent comment about her weight loss. The commentor wrote, “@iamjhud please tell my [the] brand of Garcina Cambogia that you took, I’m struggling to lose weight I really would appreciate it,” the woman said in regards to a photo of the singer in a crop top.
The actress, who recently wrapped up her role as Shug Avery in The Color Purple on Broadway, clapped back, “@masterious1 did you ever not see all my weight loss commercials, no? Feeling food? Birds flying high, you know how I feel? No? You’ve never seen me promote any of that you’re referring to, but I’m not sure you’ve seen me in all those commercials for I don’t know how many years.”
Hudson has never claimed to use Garcinia Cabogia, a popular plant used in diet pills that can have some dangerous side effects. The singer was a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, losing 80 pounds while with the company.
