Social media users are not too happy with a piece of style advice found in O, The Oprah Magazine.

A Brooklyn-based writer took a picture of a blurb featured in a style Q&A in a recent issue of the women's lifestyle publication that suggested readers should wear crop tops "If (and only if!) Golden Goose Scarpe you have a flat stomach."

A spokesperson for O, Golden Goose Saldi The Oprah Magazine responded to the backlash in a statement obtained by PEOPLE, "We support, encourage and empower all women to look great, feel confident and live their best lives ' in this case, we could have expressed it better. We appreciate the feedback and will be more mindful going forward."
