Jennifer Hudson isn’t typically the kind of person to pop off on the internet. But a recent comment on a photo she posted, brought something out of her.
“@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.
For those of you who don’t know: Garcina Cambogia is a tropical Indonesian plant that can come in the form of diet pills. While they’re a popular product in the world of weight-loss fads, because they’re not regulated under the FDA as a drug (considered supplements), they can be dangerous.
But aside from dangers of using the pill, Hudson has never claimed to use them. So the question posed is dumb.
Initially, Hudson’s fiance David Otunga responded in her defense. “@masterious1 you can’t be serious,” he said. “She took some David Ortunga and that’s it. Is that so hard to understand?”
But J-Hud wasn’t far behind responding to the comment as well. “@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.”
All you can do is laugh. Commenters say the darndest things.
In other J-Hud news, the 34-year-old recently celebrated a street in Chicago being named after her late-nephew who was murdered in 2008. Named Julian D. King Way, the moment was restorative to the talent who lost her nephew, brother and mother on the same day.
“I have seen a lot of great days but I must say this one is one of the absolute best!” she said. Adding, “Today June 17th, which oddly just so happens to be my late grandmother Julia Kate Hudson’s birthday! On today a very special ceremony took place in my hometown Chicago in the honor of my late nephew, Julian D. King! I witnessed a street being named in his honor! I can barely type this through the tears, bitter-sweet tears! You know someone is special when they still impact you and touch you long after they’re gone! Wow, look at God!”
The singer is currently spending Father’s Day with her partner, Otunga and son, David Daniel Otunga Jr.
