Jameela Jamil thinks Khloe Kardashian is being ‘too irresponsible’ by posting an Instagram photo promoting meal replacement shakes.
The Good Place actress and body positivity activist Jameela Jamil, 33, has no patience with Khloé Kardashian promoting Flat Tummy Co’s meal replacement shakes on her Instagram.. Khloé shared a photo on March 20, posing in a mirror selfie, wearing a pink lacy bra and jeans, showing off her “flat tummy.” Khloé’s caption promoted the shake and credited it for her “progress” on her body. Jameela called out the reality star in a lengthy comment on the post for potentially not being transparent about how she actually attained her toned physique.
“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,” Jameela said that then “she’d have to” include what the side effects of the promoted product are. “Possible Flat Tummy Tea side effects are cramping, stomach pains, diarrhea, and dehydration,” Jameela informed people looking at Khloé’s advertising post.
“It’s incredibly awful that this industry bullied you until you became this fixated on your appearance,” Jameela empathized with Khloe, who has had her own show called Revenge Body on E! “That’s the media fault. But now please don’t put that back into the world, and hurt other girls, the way you have been hurt. You’re a smart woman. Be smarter than this.”
Jameela also tweeted on March 21, reacting again to the reality star posting the promo for the shakes, and to the other social media influencers who have been spreading the word of these products on their Instagrams. “I will continue to embarrass you all until you all discontinue your promotion of dud “diet/detox” products, that aren’t FDA approved, and you don’t even put the f****** side effects on the damn post. There are very young people you are hurting here, and I’m doing this for them.”
The British-born actress has slammed social media influencers for promoting diet teas and meal replacement shakes before, accusing them of spreading harmful body images. We guess we’ll have to wait and see how Khloé reacts, if she decides to do so.
