Celebrities on Instagram are selling harmful substances in the name of ‘tea’

Whether slimming tea or detox tea or even a weight-loss lollipop, you’re sure to find celebrities on Instagram endorsing ’em. However, one celebrity is outraged and is calling out the others, for selling women concoctions in a bag. Actress Jameela Jamil singled out icons like Cardi B and Kim Kardashian, and labelled them “terrible and toxic influence on young girls”!

The Good Place star has had enough! As part of her feminism, Jameela is criticizing all female celebrities who somehow ‘body-shame’ other females, by wooing them to buy shape-altering substances. In her view, they do it just for more money while not necessarily consuming them.

The first on her list was rapper Cardi B, who by the way just had a baby, and endorsed a laxative tea. “GOD I hope all these celebrities all shit their pants in public, the way the poor women who buy this nonsense upon their recommendation do,” she tweeted. “Not that they actually take this shit. They just flog it because they need MORE MONEY.”

Also on her list were reality TV stars Kim and Khloe Kardashian, as well as Amber Rose. She posted a collage of them all and accused them of using surgeons and dieticians to maintain their figures.

Jameela is so triggered about this because the problem hits home

You might be wondering what got Jamil so upset about these posts. Well it turns out that in the past, she herself had had issues with anorexia. The star had once opened up about her teenage struggle against this eating disorder. On her Instagram, she revealed; “I listened to irresponsible celebrities and bought all these bad products and followed their TERRIBLE and toxic diet tips for how they maintained the tiny weight they were… and I fucked up my metabolism and digestive system for life.”

“No. F*ck off. No. You terrible and toxic influence on young girls. I admire their mother’s branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius, however this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to. ☹️” Jamil tweeted

Moreover, another part of her anger comes from her feminism. Jameela hates it when men hurt women, and even more when women hurt themselves! “It arises from a sexist culture that tells women our bodies aren’t good enough and our worth lies in our beauty. Most of us can sympathize with the pressures famous women face to maintain a perfect image”, Huffingtonpost.com said about Jameela.

Furthermore, these celebrities having access to nutritionists, trainers and surgeons to get the perfect bodies. Most women seeing these ads will probably never see the same results ― even if they are drinking the teas and eating the lollipops ― because they don’t have the same resources as their favorite celebrity.

In addition, there are real life negative effects of the chemicals in these products.

“These teas usually contain senna, an herb with a laxative effect. Long-term consumption of stimulants like senna can create dependence. Dependent consumers have to continue using it or increasing their dosage to have regular bowel movements. What’s worse is the National Eating Disorders Association warns that laxative abuse can lead to dehydration as well as electrolyte and mineral imbalances that cause kidney and heart failure” Huffingtonpost adds.
