The post came just days after Gaga was criticized by her own fans for an ad campaign that sees her teaming up with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer for a migraine drug.
The Bad Romance hitmaker posted a photo of herself on her The Chromatica Ball Tour last year with a huge watermark in the top right corner for Nurtec ODT on Instagram.
What followed were slides direct from Pfizer’s marketing team detailing safety information, side effects, and general information about the migraine drug.
Gaga – who has been open about her medical struggles – posted it with a lengthy caption that mixes her own statement and advertising/legal jargon.
Part of the caption read, “I have dealt with migraine pain since childhood. When I first tried Nurtec® ODT (rimegepant) 75mg I will never forget how I wished I had found it sooner.
“That’s why I’m proud to work with Nurtec ODT. [purple heart emoji] We’re in the same boat. If you’re ready to speak to a doctor, ask about Nurtec ODT today. #MHAM’
Ah! Little Monsters: The post came just days after Gaga was criticized by her own fans for an ad campaign that sees her teaming up with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer for a migraine drug
‘You really are such an embarrassing sellout’: The 37-year-old hitmaker had taken to the arms of her loyal followers, known as the Little Monsters, with an Instagram post on Tuesday
There were even claims on social media that Gaga had lost several followers over the post, as Twitter user @sourbenji wrote, “Lady Gaga has lost over 300,000 followers since her Nurtec ad [sad face emoji]’
Her Little Monsters weren’t happy with the post, as one of them pulled no punches in the comments section, writing, “you’re such an embarrassing sellout, it’s really disappointing.”
Another added: “Ma’am??? since when do you do sponsored posts??? This is wild’
One fan wasn’t happy, as they said, “posting a picture of the chromatica ball during pride month but being a migraine ad is homophobic.”
Finally, another Little Monster also expressed disappointment with Gaga for posting the ad, but nothing about it being Pride Month.
They said, ‘This is so heartbreaking and disheartening. not a single post about pride and the attacks our trans brothers and sisters endure. no interaction with fans, no music, even the chromatics ball seems to be on the shelf and all you guys care about now is money and paid partnerships. this is terribly disappointing.’
