    Jameela Jamil has been an outspoken advocate for body positivity. She started the movement ‘iweigh‘ in response to a picture that listed how much each Kardashian sister weighs, instead encouraging people to list the things that make them who they are.

    And recently The Good Place actress has hit back at all the celebrities who promote detox and diet teas to their followers on social media.

    Tweeting that she wants ‘all these celebrities all shit their pants in public, the way the poor women who buy this nonsense upon their recommendation do,’ Jameela revealed she has had enough of the people who sell weight loss products to their fans.

    ‘When will these women who are covered in plastic surgery stop telling their followers to drink a laxative to look like them?’ she tweeted.

    ‘It’s so embarrassing and it’s so encouraging of eating dirsordered [sic] behavior. BE BETTER ALLIES!’

    Jameela also took the opportunity to explain that she was someone who bought into ‘miracle cures and laxatives’ at one point in order to lose weight, and underlined the seriousness of situation by revealing that it had a lasting impact on her health.

    She wrote: ‘I was the teenager who starved herself for years, who spent all her money on these miracle cures and laxatives and tips from celebrities on how to maintain a weight that was lower than what my body wanted it to be. I was sick, I have had digestion and metabolism problems for life.’

    Posting photos of Khloe Kardashian, Cardi B, Amber Rose and Iggy Azalea advertising products from Flat Tummy on Instagram, Jameela wrote: ‘Give us the discount codes to your nutritionists, personal chefs, personal trainers, airbrushers and plastic surgeons you bloody liars.’

    She continued: ‘I am not going to stop coming after all the people, men and women, who perpetuate this gross culture of forcing women to remain small and doll-like in order to be accepted by society. Fucking TRY ME.’
