BRITISH Asian actress Jameela Jamil has criticised celebrities for promoting diet pills and has urged fans to “unfollow, delete and repeat.”

Jamil is an advocate for body positivity and she has taken aim at Keeping up with the Kardashians star Khloe for advertising a brand of weight-loss product on social media.

Taking to Twitter, Jamil wrote: “The only diet advice you should take from celebrities is: “DON’T TAKE DIET ADVICE FROM CELEBRITIES.” They don’t give a flying fu** about you, or your kidneys or your liver or your mental health. Unfollow, delete, repeat.”

“Spend your money that you would spend on the bullshit teas, shakes, cellulite creams, stretch mark creams, anti age creams, none of which work… ON THERAPY. A much better use of time and cash,” she added in another tweet.

This is not the first time The Good Place actress has criticised the Kardashians for promoting weight loss products on social media.

In the past few months, Jamil has called out Kim for her weight loss adds, calling the reality show star a “terrible and toxic influence on young girls.”

Targeting Khloé, Jamil wrote: “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…and (b) tell them the side effects of this NON-FDA approved product, that most doctors are saying aren’t healthy…then I guess I have to.”
