Miranda Kerr slammed over promoting “dangerous advice”

Miranda Kerr slammed over promoting “dangerous advice”

Australian supermodel and influencer Miranda Kerr has been slammed for sharing controversial advice in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Kerr shared a guide called the “Virus Protection” guide with her 12.2 million Instagram followers, and the move has been labelled “dangerous” and “irresponsible” by a medical professional.

The guide that Kerr shared is written by a medical medium known as Anthony Williams, who has no medical qualifications and has previously stated that celery juice is the “greatest healing tonic of all time”.

His medical advice and theories come from “communications with the gods”.

Kerr is still standing by the advice, despite Dr Joshua Wolrich slamming the post.

"ABSOLUTELY NOT. Do better with your influence,” he said.

"This 'virus protection' guide is full of unscientific nonsense that has ZERO medical validity.

"Celery juice doesn't fight viral infections, nor does any of the rest of the advice in this guide.

"Open your eyes people. Misinformation is dangerous. Stop spreading it."

Kerr rarely shares health advice with her followers, and some have reacted strongly to her post from the medium.

Please don't share information when you're not qualified to do so (especially from someone who REALLY isn't qualified to do so),” one follower wrote.

"The information you're sharing isn't in any way valid and to anyone who reads this, IT WILL NOT PROTECT YOU FROM THE VIRUS.

"Please take it down."

Another follower said that it was “dangerous nonsense”. 

Others agreed, saying that the advice is in “no way supported by science or medicine. Shameful”.
