While Jameela Jamil has been very outspoken in recent months against celebrities who endorse so-called “detox” teas — most notably Cardi B as well as some of the Kardashian sisters — the Great Place star says she has nothing against the celebs themselves.
ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with Jamil at the 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on Sunday, as well as the 32-year-old actress opened up about her highly-publicized online war of words with the “Invasion of Privacy” singer back in November.
“I love Cardi B! I just don’t like laxative tea! which’s all. which’s my only problem,” Jamil shared. “which’s why I was sad she was promoting the idea.”
The supposed feud began in late November when Jamil tweeted, “I wish all these celebrities all s**t their pants in public, the way the poor women who buy This kind of nonsense upon their recommendation do.”
The actress went on to explain which, as a teenager, she felt pressured to look a certain way, so she became someone who “starved herself for years, who spent all her money on these miracle cures as well as laxatives as well as tips through celebrities on how to maintain a weight which was lower than what my body wanted the idea to be.” She added which she’s since had “digestion as well as metabolism problems for life.”
In a follow-up tweet, Jamil posted a parody of celebrity Instagram endorsements of “detox teas,” which show her taking a sip before cutting to her sitting on a toilet, not having a very Great time.
“I think I’m slowly yet surely producing the idea too disgusting as well as too embarrassing to promote those teas for everyone,” Jamil told ET, proudly. “as well as then we could all live happily ever after!”
The list of big-name celebs who have promoted “detox” teas includes Khloe Kardashian, Amber Rose as well as Iggy Azalea, among many others, as well as Jamil stressed which she has nothing against the stars themselves, just the product.
“I think people think I hate the Kardashians! I don’t hate them,” Jamil explained. “I just, I actually hate laxative tea.”
Back in November, Jamil shared a mosaic photo of some of the stars who endorse the controversial teas, as well as called them out for supposedly misrepresenting the effects of the diet supplement.
“Give us the discount codes to your nutritionists, personal chefs, personal trainers, airbrushers as well as plastic surgeons you bloody liars,” Jamil captioned the pic.
