Daisy May Cooper has apologised to fans who were offended by a weight loss post she shared on Instagram, as she admitted: “I should have known better.”
The now-deleted upload showed Daisy revealing her body transformation in her bathroom mirror as she spoke of the benefits of the keto diet.
Daisy said she’s been following the low carbohydrate plan since welcoming her second child in September and took to social media to show off her slimmed down tummy.
However, the before and after pictures were met by a huge backlash from her social media following, prompting the This Country actress to hit the delete button.
“I’m extremely sorry. Thank you so much to everyone who called me out on it. Love you all,” Daisy then explained on her Instagram Story.
Earlier in the day, Daisy posed up in her bathroom to show off the results of her health regime that she said was the ‘only diet she’s ever really enjoyed.’
In the caption she wrote: “Anyone else doing keto? My mate Sarah and my da suggested I give it a try and I’m shocked at how quickly weight is dropping off.
“Forgive the s***e mirrors and grey bra and the fact im not standing in the same position so I look like a midget on the right…
“And don’t panic… im not going to be promoting any s**t weightloss dvds or products. Pic on the right taken 1st of Jan. Be grateful for any keto tips, only diet I’ve ever really enjoyed.”
A disabled single mother responded by calling out Daisy for referring to herself as a ‘midget’ in the post.
She thanked Daisy for taking the pictures and caption and asked her to address the mistake publicly ‘in order to raise awareness among your large fan base that seemingly don’t find an issues with this s***.”
Daisy, 34, said she was happy to make the apology and took the original post down.
The Cirencester born star gave brth to her second child last year, a son who she named after her late co-star Michael Sleggs.
Daisy and husband Will are also parents to daughter Pip.
The comedian is well-known and admired for her frank nature, having risen to fame in This Country and appearing on Task Master and Celebrity Gogglebox.
