Joy took to Instagram on January 14 to tell followers about her successful weight loss.
The mom-of-one worked with a health coach to drop the weight she gained while pregnant with her son Gideon in just one week.
Followers were eager for details, and Joy responded to dozens of comments with more information. However, one of Joy’s replies concerned others.
A fan commented, “I’d do anything to lose weight! The issue is I have to do it healthy since I have anorexia.”
Joy replied, “Awesome! This is all clean and has probiotics built in!”
Another fan noticed the exchange and said, “I don’t think you’re qualified to determine whether this is a safe weight loss plan from someone who has been anorexic.”
Fans on Reddit called it a “tone deaf comment” and slammed Jill for not doing more research before sending her flip response.
