A detox tea brand endorsed by the likes of Kylie Jenner and Cardi B has been hit with a $15M judgement for by the US Federal Trade Commission, and nobody has taken the news better than Jameela Jamil.

Teami LLC, which uses Instagram influencers to sell a variety of products with various supposed health benefits, was found to have engaged in deceptive marketing practices. The $15M represents money it made on its products.

“Teami and its owners earned millions making unsubstantiated claims about their products and promoted those claims using paid influencers,” the FTC said. The judgement will be suspended if the company pays a $1M fine up-front.

Jameela Jamil, who has been critical of celebrities like Kylie Jenner and the Kardashian family for advertising these kinds of products, took to Instagram to celebrate upon hearing the news. “I fucking TOLD ya,” she wrote, adding:

“People can call me annoying all day long, doesn’t change the fact that there has been a HUGE reduction in influencers and celebrities selling diet products over the past year since I started making it globally embarrassing to do so, and prodding at anyone who did until they stopped. These products are part of eating disorder culture, they don’t work, and you should never ever look for a quick “fix” for your body. Slow and easy and gentle is the only way to approach change, and with the help of professionals, not some immoral celebrities and influencers who will promote ANYTHING for a quick cheque.”

She continued:

“Protect yourself. Treat your body with the care it deserves and know that these people look the way they do because of surgeons, unhealthy starvation patterns, photoshop and personal trainers… they didn’t get this way from a product over the internet, and neither will you. You will most likely JUST get IBS.”
