Black Friday 2018 recently concluded, and just like toys, electronics and books, Instagram-famous detox teas were on sale, too!
Cardi B took to Instagram to score some bags by promoting a buy one, get one free detox tea special for those coveting flat tummies.

Not everyone was feeling the Cardi cosign, though. This particular ad prompted actress Jameela Jamil of The Good Place to speak out.
As The Cut reports, Jamil has been critical of fad diets and Instagram health products for some time, having once called a Kardashian appetite suppressant ad "terrible and toxic." This time, the actress took to Twitter, writing she hopes "all these celebrities [selling detox tea] s**t their pants in public, the way the poor women who buy this nonsense upon their recommendation do."
They got Cardi B on the laxative nonsense “detox” tea. GOD I hope all these celebrities all shit their pants in public, the way the poor women who buy this nonsense upon their recommendation do. Not that they actually take this shit. They just flog it because they need MORE MONEY pic.twitter.com/OhmTjjWVOp— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) November 24, 2018
Jamil also accused Cardi and other Instagram influencers of peddling the product without ever using it.
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. https://t.co/0b9YItPlMj— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) November 27, 2018
Cardi has a solution, though: bushes.
"I will never s**t my pants cause there's public bathrooms ... oooo and bushes," the Invasion of Privacy rapper wrote in the comment section of a post discussing the actress' statements, according to Newsweek.
