"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," Jamil commented.
On Wednesday, "The Good Place" actress, who has criticized detox teas and meal replacement supplements in the past, commented on the reality star's Instagram post where she posed in a bralette and showed off her toned tummy for a paid partnership with Flat Tummy Co.
"#ad Loving how my tummy looks right now you guys!" Khloe captioned the pic. "I brought @flattummyco's meal replacement shakes into my routine about 2 weeks ago, and the progress is undeniable✨P.S the shakes are 20% off today and you can get Flat Tummy Tea at a really good deal too. Go check it out!"
A few hours later, Jamil entered the comments section on Khloe's post. "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," she began. "And b) tell them the side effects of this NON-FDA approved product, that most doctors are saying aren't healthy. Side effects such as: Possible Flat Tummy Tea side effects are cramping, stomach pains, diarrhea and dehydration...Then I guess I have to."
"It's incredibly awful that this industry bullied you until you became this fixated on your appearance," she continued. "That's the media's 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."
This isn't the first time Jamil has made comments about Khloe's sponsored posts promoting weight loss products. Back in January, the actress said Khloe was an example of what "the media" has done to women in the entertainment industry: "They fat shamed her into a prison of self-critique."
It all started when Khloe shared a message on her Instagram Story that read, "2 Things a Girl Wants: 1) Lose Weight. 2) Eat." Jameela took a screenshot of the message and posted it to Twitter, writing, "This makes me sad. I hope my daughter grows up wanting more than this. I want more than this. sending love to this poor woman. This industry did this to her. The media did it to her. They fat shamed her into a prison of self-critique. Dear girls, WANT MORE THAN THIS."
Media outlets picked up the tweet, with several reporting that Jameela had "slammed," "called out" and put the reality star "on blast." She was not having it.
"To the press outlets that said I 'slammed,' 'called out,' 'came for,' 'hit out at' Khloe in this post: You suck," Jameela tweeted in response. "You're trying to make a woman of color look violent and aggressive when I could not have been more empathetic. I was criticizing the fat-shaming media."
"I am doing what I do and saying what I say for the mental health of young kids who follow damaging rhetoric and are at risk of internalizing it more than adults," she continued, adding that "people who haven't suffered with or understand eating disorders don't understand the desperate need we are in to change the conversation around weight and food."
The actress, who has alluded to having suffered from an eating disorder herself, responded to a critic who had apparently laughed at her outrage. "Is it funny, mate? Eating disorders funny to you? Little girls being scared of food and fat? Obsessing over their weight rather than thinking about school or happiness or fun? Is it LOLs?" she replied. "Is someone who frequently peddles weight-loss products, reminding kids to diet, hilarious?" The critic has since deleted their tweet.
"I don't care how humorless or annoying anyone will find me -- I will make it too difficult to get away with fat-phobia, fat jokes, fat-shaming, food-shaming and frankly, anything that encourages eating-disorder mentality," Jameela continued. "I will annoy you into submission. Watch me."
