If you don’t follow ‘The Good Place’ star Jameela Jamil on social media, you should. If you do, then you already know how amazing she is. She’s hilarious, body positive, loves celebrating and lifting up women, wants the world to be a better place for young females and isn’t afraid to call celebrities and companies out on their sh*t. So, naturally, she’s been gunning for celebs like Kim Kardashian, Cardi B and Iggy Azalea, famous women who are making money peddling their detox and weight loss products. She even made a parody video of it all.

If influencers and celebrities were actually honest with us about some of these Slimming/detox products… #itburns

A post shared by Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamilofficial) on

Jamil — who also has another Instagram account under the name I Weigh, which she calls a “movement for us to feel valuable and see how amazing we are beyond the flesh on our bones” — is so fired up about stars promoting slimming products on social media, she started a petition to get Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat to ban the potentially harmful posts, likening the health risks one can get from drugs or cigarettes to “toxic diet products.”

But since they still can, Khloe recently posted a pic of her abs behind one of those slimming shakes, and Jameela commented so hard, Khloe’s post has since been deleted.

Tea, for lack of a better word. #CommentsByCelebs

Over the weekend, the New York Times featured a profile on the Kardashians and they were asked about Jamil’s harsh (albeit, bang-on) comments and HoH Kris Jenner defended it, saying, “I don’t live in that negative energy space. Ninety percent of people will be really excited about the family and the journey and who we are.” Khloe chimed in, saying she doesn’t have a chef and only posts her training sessions on Snapchat because some “silly” people can’t afford them. And Jameela pounced.

The Kardashians need to check their moral compasses, because they appear to be broken. 👇🏽 This was the Kardashian response to being asked by the @nytimes about my calling for transparency and responsibility in their extensive work to promote diet culture. Khloe: “I don’t live in that negative energy space. Ninety percent of people will be really excited about the family and the journey and who we are. Khloé also added that she’s never had a chef and that she shares her work outs on Snapchat, saying, “Well, listen, I am showing you what to do, silly person, 15 repetitions, three times, here’s the move…” It’s not clear whether she’s calling her followers or Jameela the “silly person,” but either way this doesn’t seem like the greatest excuse! Kim talked about the finical motivations behind some of her Insta ads, saying, “If there is work that is really easy that doesn’t take away from our kids, that’s like a huge priority, if someone was faced with the same job opportunities, I think they would maybe consider. You’re going to get backlash for almost everything so as long as you like it or believe in it or it’s worth it financially, whatever your decision may be, as long as you’re O.K. with that.” COOOOOOLUH. 👎🏽

Just in case Jameela’s message wasn’t heard, she added a more explicit description.

Jamil then points out how ironic it is that she began her I Weigh movement defending the family who she is currently targeting.

This too, of course, shall pass. Until the Kardashians’ next ads, and Jamil’s follow-up criticism of them. Because she will continue to fight for what she believes in. And if that’s teenage girls who feel the need to look a certain way and are looking towards the wrong people for inspiration, so be it. Girls everywhere, Jameela should be your role model. Hell, she’s a role model for all of us.
