The Sister Wives stars regularly model clothes from the company and promote it by using hashtags.
Many people have expressed their dislike of the brand after a new Amazon docuseries, LuLaRich, offered viewers a look into the company, as well as the people who work there.
THE DOC’S FINDINGS
In the doc, a number of past sale reps came forward to reveal that the company left them in financial ruin when they were unable to sell merchandise they were forced to purchase.
While two of Kody Brown’s wives Meri and Christine, as well as Mykelti, are not mentioned in the doc, many Sister Wives fans now blame the TV stars for the company’s success.
Mykelti stood up to critics in a series of comments on Instagram as she argued that the doc was heavily “edited” and took things “out of context.”
While addressing backlash for working with the company on Instagram, Mykelti told one fan: “Every company has controversies. All the ‘new information’ coming out is actually way old. As you may know from my own family’s show, things get edited and taken out of context to create more drama.”
She wrote to another Instagram user: “The documentary edited as much as they could to bleed drama. The information in it is all old. LLR doesn’t lie to their new retailers. I wasn’t misinformed at all when I joined. It’s people who are trying to blame others for their own failure.”
Mykelti continued to defend the company as she told a follower that LuLaRoe doesn’t “prey” on their salespeople, arguing: “People are trying to get money without work and then blaming the company when they can’t work their own business.”
She concluded: “Those who are still in the company today are here because they know it’s work and they’re willing to put in the effort and not leave simply because they have to show up.”
FANS SLAM MERI AND CHRISTINE
Mykelti defended the company shortly after Sister Wives fans slammed Christine and Meri for working with the company.
While taking to Reddit, one person wrote: “It seems like they, especially Meri, are top earners which means they probably have significant downlines…it’s super exploitative and they’re just using their fame to sucker people into keeping them rich. They could have definitely funneled all of their fame into figuring out some sort of legitimate business instead.
“I was never a huge Meri fan to begin with, but watching that doc has really soured me on Christine.”
Another added: “They’re lying, scheming and taking advantage of other people. They’re awful.”
A third chimed in: “Meri just seems so desperate to belong to something and be someone, and that’s how LLR suckered her in.”
Meanwhile, Mykelti is one of Kody’s 15 children.
