Lady Gaga is facing criticism after teaming up with Pfizer to promote migraine drug Nurtec.
The singers’ paid partnership with the pharmaceutical giant was met with a harsh response from fans who criticized the embarrassing announcement and accused Gaga of selling out for cash.
Girl what the hell happened to you that you’re like this and care about money like this and nothing else? Not the person who said I pretend I hate money in 2009, one person commented.
Why is there something wrong with this account? Where’s Gaga? Who is doing this? How come our Mother Monster would be a sponsor [medicine]? This is nonsense. [sic]added another.
Healthcare is a human right, not a commodity to be exploited for greed and wealth. I know you are compassionate, intelligent and thoughtful. I hope you will show this through the ways you use your platform and privileges moving forward. That’s not it, wrote a third.
Gaga, who has been a vocal advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights, has also been called out for not posting Pride Month on her social media.
For more Page Six you love
I love you but it’s so underplanned, the LGBTQ community is actively under attack, and you’re securing a branded deal with painkillers? said one fan.
It’s Pride Month and you’ve run two different ads but don’t have time to say anything about the terrifying campaign against trans rights? wondered another.
The backlash started when the Bad Romance singer, 37, announced her big pharma endorsement on Instagram Tuesday, sharing a photo of herself performing on stage with the Nurtecs logo in the upper right corner.
Since childhood, I have dealt with migraine pain. When I first tried Nurtec ODT (rimegepant) 75mg, I will never forget wishing I had found it sooner. That’s why I’m proud to partner with Nurtec ODT. We were in this together, she wrote in the caption.
Gaga too appeared in a television commercial for the drugwhich described the founder of Haus Labs as a real patient.
I know what it’s like to perform through pain. If you’re like me, one of the millions who suffer from migraine pain, Nurtec ODT could help. It’s the only drug that can treat migraines when they strike and prevent migraine attacks, he said.
Amid the overwhelmingly negative reaction to the announcement, others have come to the pop stars defense and brought up her struggle with chronic disease.
Little monsters when they realize that Gaga, who has written an entire album about pain, who has been telling us about her chronic pain disease for over a decade, and who has had to cancel entire tours because of her relentless pain, may actually be in pain , a user tweeted.
The Joker: Folie Deux actress has been open in the past about her diagnosis of fibromyalgia, a chronic disease that she says causes severe pain and has led to previous tour cancellations.
