Jameela Jamil criticised diet and detox products by filming herself on a toilet

‘Remember this picture.’

A WAR OF words has waged across social media since Jameela Jamil called out certain celebrities for endorsing diet and detox products earlier this week.

On Monday, she used Twitter to share a collage of Iggy Azalea, Khloé Kardashian, Cardi B and Amber Rose, all of whom were promoting products which claimed to ensure a flat stomach.

Calling them ‘bloody liars’, Jameela questioned the notion that their physiques came down to the products they were promoting.

Give us the discount codes to your nutritionists, personal chefs, personal trainers, airbrushers and plastic surgeons you bloody liars.

It wasn’t long before Perez Hilton got wind of Jameela’s tweet, dubbed her ‘holier than thou’ and announced that he would happily promote detox products as he has children, and wants to support them financially

Jameela responded by saying:

That’s a sad truth @PerezHilton and awful you don’t care about young people, other people’s kids, who get so fucked up by this stuff. By the time a diet company WANTS you to promote their product, you’re already doing better than most and don’t need the laxative cash for ur kids. (sic)

And now she’s gone one step further.

In a short video, Jameela parodied the uploads shared by celebrities promoting such products, and, well, see for yourself.

And in an effort to hammer home her point this evening, the Good Place actress shared a photo of herself sitting on a toilet wearing a pained expression, complete with streaming eyes.

Every time you see a diet/detox advert, remember this picture. @i_weigh #itburns

Yep, got it.
