SISTER Wives’ Meri Brown was slammed by fans for promoting her LuLaRoe clothing brand in an Instagram post about “peace” and “unity”.
The 49-year-old took to Instagram yesterday to share a snap of her in a red, white and blue T-shirt, which featured the word “united” emblazoned across the chest.
Captioning the shot, she penned a lengthy statement about how “love conquers all” and urged her 413,000 followers to have “tough” conversations with their loved ones hinting at the Black Lives Matter movement.
Meri, who is believed to have split from husband Kody, wrote: “My desire is that we could all unite. Unite in kindness. Unite in peace. Unite in lifting others who are down.
“Unite in blessing others who are in need. I’m not blind to the fact that we all have different opinions, perceptions, backgrounds, and beliefs, and those things make us unique and important in our own right.
“But I do believe there could be a unity that we don’t have right now. Let it start with yourself,” she continued. “Let it start within your family, within your friend groups, within your sphere of influence, whatever that may be.
“Let it ripple out and affect all who will be affected. Don’t misunderstand me when I say UNITE.
Adding: “I absolutely don’t mean we all have to believe the same thing, or feel the same way. When I say unite in kindness, I mean to be kind to all.
“When I say unite in peace, I mean to allow others their own thoughts and feelings without infringing on that with your own.
“Have the tough conversations with an open mind and an open heart. I still believe love conquers all.”
Interestingly, it appears that Meri turned off her Instagram comments on the post but later took to her Instagram Stories about being attacked seemingly in reference to this situation.
She shared alongside a peace sign emoji: “Just to address the clear misunderstanding, not that I have to, but I do not mention every personal thought, opinion or belief in every single one of my posts.
“So please don’t attack me because of your opinion of what I should say on my personal page.”
Reddit users in the group TLCSisterWives further discussed why the reality TV star’s post was problematic.
User Sharedimagination penned: “They need to stop trying to preach and buy into the forced wokeness train, it feels contrived.
“Then she has to add SpewLaRoe hashtags and makes it all bulls**t anyway.”
To which another Reddit user, Mbluna, replied: “I’d expect nothing different from tone deaf Meri.”
While bitsey123 commented on Meri including 12 hashtags under her post, many of which were to promote LuLaRoe.
Last week, Meri’s fellow sister wife Christine was slammed by fans for using the Black Lives Matter movement to sell T-shirts.
She was blasted by followers for using the movement, which fights racial inequality, injustice and police brutality, to promote the Lularoe tops and admitted that “saying sorry is hard”.
Attempting to acknowledge her wrongdoing, the reality star penned alongside a selfie of herself: “Working out is hard.
“Saying sorry is hard. Admitting you were wrong is hard. Saying #blacklivesmatter isn’t hard!! Let’s say it and LIVE IT! BLACK LIVES MATTER!!”

Christine’s social media post comes as she was slammed by fans for using the Black Lives Matter movement to sell T-shirts.
Along with a picture of her wearing a top that read “Perfectly Imperfect,” she posted: “Our world is crazy right now!
“This year has been SO HARD so far! From fires to looting to killing to shaming.

“It seems like being ‘perfectly imperfect’ fits for all of us though. No matter how we stand politically or socially.
“I wish this was a world where we could all have honor and trust and hey, a lot more love would be awesome too! #becauseoflularoe #lularoeretailer #lovinlife #perfectlyimperfect.”
The comments were turned off on the post after some of her followers found her caption troublesome.
