Well, this is awkward. Kim Kardashian doesn't often advertise products that aren't made by her family on Instagram, but on June 20 she made an exception. Kim shared a photo of herself holding a bottle of morning sickness pills called Bonjesta, and wrote, "You know how sick I was while pregnant; I could barely get out of bed. That was before I found a safe and effective med to treat my morning sickness when diet and lifestyle changes didn’t help." However, disappointed fans noticed that this drug wasn't even available while she was pregnant, and they're calling her out.
"Did this even exist when you were last pregnant?" asked one fan. "That drug was not available for treating nausea and vomiting of pregnant women until April 2018. So which pregnancy are you talking about?" said another commenter. And they're right. Bonjesta was approved by the FDA in November of 2016, according to MPR, but it didn't become available for patients until April 2018. Kim had daughter North in 2013, son Saint in 2015, and used a surrogate for Chicago, who was born in January 2018. That means that Kim couldn't possibly have used the pills.
Fans were upset to see her suggesting medications to fans, especially ones she hasn't used, and especially ones with a dark history. Bonjesta was actually taken off the market 30 years ago because it was causing birth defects in children. However, the FDA has determined that the new formula makes the pills safe to use again. Perhaps they figured the only way people would give it a chance would be if a trusted celebrity mom suggested it.
Many were just surprised that Kim would put such a blantant advertisement on her page. The post even had a list of side effects with it. "They must have given her millions," wrote one suspicious fan. Another said, "Kim, you don't need to do this!" Still, some defended her. "She's posting what she feels is helpful. Many would do the same," said a passionate supporter. "Do your part in saving the world people cause God knows she's trying to please the world."
