Louis Tomlinson definitely has a great body, and we’re sure he’s on a super intense diet and strict training regiment, but does that mean he’s drinking weight loss smoothies?
Louis tweeted, “Had an amazing @BooteaUK smoothie from Bootea.com this morning #booteashake”.
He apparently didn’t know that the Bootea products are designed to help people lose weight and get in shape.
The Bootea website says that the company “promote[s] an active, healthy and balanced lifestyle,” but also claims to help customers “lose unwanted weight quickly,” which hardly sounds healthy.
Directioners and non-directioners alike took to Twitter to criticize Louis for “promoting” weight loss programs.
“@horanwasted is louis drinking that bootea smoothie thing for weight loss? WHY IS HE DOING THAT THO HIS BODY IS PERF HE DOESNT NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT”
“@HarryGotStyles does louis think he needs to lose weight? bootea is specifically designed for weightloss”
He did eventually delete the tweet after he discovered its controversial nature, but it already had over 10,000 retweets and over 14,500 favorites.
A representative from the band’s management spoke to E! News, saying:
“Louis tweeted about the drink as he had one this morning and enjoyed it. However, he did not realize they are associated with weight loss, and would never endorse weight loss products.”
Regardless of the apparently angry directioners, the drink in question, the £34.99 (almost $55) Bootea Shake, sold out on the Bootea website within hours of Louis’s tweet.
We think it’s pretty obvious that Louis didn’t mean to promote weight loss products. He probably didn’t even realize that Bootea shake was anything more than a normal smoothie.
