We are all painfully aware that Farrah Abraham is the absolute worst. That has been clear for a while now.
But facing a lawsuit, no longer raking in Teen Mom money, and the questionable health of her business ventures seems to have made her desperate.
Farrah is now having Sophia do full on commercials for her, and fans are letting her have it.
In a video that we have included for your viewing horror, Sophia is helping Farrah advertise scooters.
It’s not a proper commercial — it’s from Instagram.
What’s more is that they’re ostensibly not trying to entice viewers to buy the scooters.
Instead, they’re hosting a giveaway that reeks of desperation.
On Farrah’s Instagram, Sophia appears as part of the "Friendsgiving" giveaway.
But while they’re planning to give away a small number of scooters — just 10 — their true purpose becomes clear.
This is a ploy to attract legions of new followers to Farrah.
To participate in the giveaway, you must be following Farrah.
This sort of thing happens all of the time on social media.
The idea is that you will follow the account hoping to get free stuff, and by the time that the deadline rolls around, most will forget to unfollow.
Usually, the people with schemes like this are teens who received a redundant present and use the extra to get some clout.
Farrah is famous and allegedly a millionaire. Weird to see her walking in the foosteps of a teenage Tumblr user.
The reason for Farrah’s open and embarrassing desperation is clear.
This year, in addition to having to close two of her ridiculous stores and getting sued for unpaid rent by landlords, she lost a bunch of Instagram followers.
Watching that number drop doesn’t just hurt her self esteem, it hurts her bottom line.
Farrah’s ability to do endorsement deals for cash goes down along with her follower count. She needs to drive those numbers back up.
Obviously, Farrah got put on blast for roping her daughter into this.
"Another FAKE commercial by these 2," a comment begins. "Poor Sophia thinks this is actual ‘work’ and y’all are getting paid."
The comment continues: "In reality, another desperate attempt Mommy Dearest stages to hope an actual company wants to work with y’all. THIRSTY."
"Shame on y’all," declares another. (Honestly, I’m from the South but these are a lot of y’alls)
Another concerned follower directed their comment at Sophia.
"I wish your mother would do right by you and not treat you like her toy doll," the comment begins.
It continues: "She is doing you a great disservice with the makeup and not allowing you to be a kid. I worry about you."
Keep in mind that Sophia is too young to be allowed to use social media (by the rules that websites use), and hopefully does not see comments.
Obviously, if Farrah finds herself destitute, Sophia would get dragged down along with her — or have to live with Farrah’s awful mom.
Neither of those are ideal situations (though, let’s be real, neither is continuing to be homeschooled by Farrah, of all people).
Sophia could do real commercials. A few more takes and a little more practice and she’d be great at it!
But Farrah seems interested in using her daughter to enrich herself and increase her own social media clout.
