Jameela Jamil has some thoughts on the diet products that celebrities are shilling
Thanks to actress and social activist superstar Jameela Jamil, no celebrity is safe from selling dangerous, unhealthy diet products online. Jamil took to Instagram to remind people once again not to buy the sketchy stuff that their favorite actress/social media star/influencer is shilling.
Jamil has been an outspoke critic of people like Khloe Kardashian, who hawks a product called Flat Tummy Tea, which is non-FDA approved, has potentially dangerous side effects on your body, and basically just makes you have to go to the bathroom… a lot. The actress sent out a reminder on Instagram not to buy products just because a celebrity is selling them.
“The only diet advice you should take from celebrities is: ‘DON’T TAKE DIET ADVICE FROM CELEBRITIES,'” Jamil wrote. “They don’t give a flying fuck about you, or your kidneys or your liver or your mental health. Unfollow, delete, repeat.” Yup, that sounds about right.
Okay so what should you do with your cash instead? Jamil wrote: “Save up and spend your money on therapy instead.” Very, very grateful that we all have Jamil fighting this battle against celebrities who traffic in the business of laxatives and self-esteem crushing. And even more grateful for her open dialogue about mental health and body positivity.
If you ever need a fierce pep talk on self-esteem, you’ve really got to head over to Jamil’s Instagram account ASAP.
First of all, she’s lifting the curtain behind celebrity bodies. Like, that time Kardashian posted a picture of herself and claimed that she had gotten her body in shape because of the Flat Tummy teas.
“If you’re too irresponsible to: a) own up to the fact that you have a personal trainer, nutritionist, probable chef, and a surgeon to achieve your aesthetic, rather than this laxative product…And b) tell them the side effects of this NON-FDA approved product, that most doctors are saying aren’t healthy […] then I guess I have to.” Jamil commented.
And her diarrhea jokes about these laxative products are A++.
PLUS she’s holding brands accountable for the way that they market their products towards women. Basically, she’s demanding that companies stop trying to stomp on our self-esteems in order to sell stuff.
So much love and appreciation to Jameela Jamil for fighting the good fight. Here’s hoping celebrities stop hawking this awful stuff online anymore.
