Veronica Rodriguez posts great content on Instagram, but her recent promotional video didn’t sit well with 90 Day Fiancé fans. The 37-year-old North Carolina native has become a popular influencer since appearing on 90 Day: The Single Life. Over the months, Veronica has lost 25 pounds, and she shares great weight loss tips on social media while showcasing how she keeps her skin youthful. The single mom has also become likable due to her candid commentary on Pillow Talk and fashion-forward content on social media, which has kept viewers hooked to her Instagram page.
Unfortunately, Veronica recently shared a promotional post that didn’t get her the usual response. She felt a backlash when she posted a “#sponsored” video of herself using a controversial eye product. In the video, Veronica stated that the eyedrops give her more “awake and refreshed eyes,” and asked her followers to try them out.
However, skeptical fans replied in the comments, stating they saw no difference in her eyes. An Instagram user wrote, “I feel like this page has become mostly paid promotions,” adding that Veronica is losing her authenticity by promoting such products. Another user said, “Why do you not get a real job,” telling the single mom that she isn’t a saleswoman.
Some 90 Day Fiancé Fans Positively React To Veronica’s Instagram Post
Veronica tried to show honesty by replying to her fans. The 37-year-old woman revealed that she had been using the eye drops for almost a year and used it for events and filming. Veronica also replied to critics that she had been showcasing the same product way before she hit a paid promotion deal with its company. The North Carolina native’s passive and truthful approach toward criticism did work, as some people shared supportive and positive comments. They thanked her for sharing the secret to her glowing look and complimented her for looking great.
While Veronica managed to handle the situation with sturdy replies, it’s understandable why she got a backlash from 90 Day Fiancé fans. She is one of the most genuine personalities on the show and rarely says something she doesn’t mean. Therefore, in can be disappointing seeing her social page become a promotional marketplace for controversial items. According to commenters, the North Carolina reality star seems to be taking advantage of her fame to make money, similar to other controversial cast members such as Big Ed Brown and Molly Hopkins. She is believed to be less authentic than she once was, before she didn’t promote such wild products.
Still, some 90 Day Fiancé fans understand that Veronica is a hardworking single mom who is simply seizing the opportunity. She gets complimented for her hustle because she is doing nothing wrong by promoting the products she uses on herself. However, Veronica may benefit from toning down her promotional posts and becoming more candid with the fans in live sessions. Fellow moms like Tiffany Franco and Emily Bieberly also promote products, but usually get a lot of love for being upfront with 90 Day Fiancé fans and showing the ups and downs of their daily lives.
