Jameela Jamil has insisted that she is not interested in & # 39; beef & # 39; with the Kardashians or & # 39; someone cancels & # 39; – after she accused the reality star family of promoting unsafe body expectations when detoxing tea and shakes.
The 33-year-old actress and body activist has made headlines in recent years for her public criticism of the Kardashian family on social media and called on them to promote laxatives and harmful dietary practices.
But in an interview with Crowds for Rule Breakers' digital cover, Jameela said she wasn't trying to fight the family – and would fire if they just stopped pushing products that could promote eating disorders.

Speaking again: she opened her constant feud with the Kardashians
Pronounced: Jameela has in the past called on the Kardashians to promote potentially dangerous weight loss products on their social media channels
& # 39; I am not trying to cancel anyone, & # 39; she said, adding, "I don't want beef with the Kardashians." They have a huge influence. I just want them to use that for more. & # 39;
She continued to praise Kim Kardashian, 38, in particular for her work on reforming the prison system, while also begging to stop advertising for detox companies such as Flat Tummy Tea.
& # 39; I think what Kim is doing with the prison system is very cool. & # 39; Jameela said. & # 39; Stop selling laxatives and I will get rid of you. & # 39;
Jameela has often criticized the Kardashians for their promotion of controversial weight loss products, and her criticism only increased earlier this year after the family spoke to The New York Times in March about how it didn't bother them.
& # 39; If there is work that is very easy and that our children do not decrease, that is a huge priority, if someone is confronted with the same job openings, I think they might consider that, & # 39; Kim told the newspaper about advertising for controversial products.
& # 39; You get room for almost everything, as long as you like it or believe it is financially worthwhile, whatever your decision is, as long as you like it. & # 39;
Focused: During the interview, Jameela also said he regretted mistakes from the past, such as calling Beyonce and Miley Cyrus for earlier performances
Supporter: Taylor Swift recommended Jameela & # 39; s body activism to Bustle and said she was a & # 39; much needed crusader & # 39; is
At the time, Jameela posted a series of tweets explaining why the Kardashians should stop promoting products to their fans with potentially dangerous side effects.
& # 39; Essentially & # 39 ;, the young, influenceable people, or people struggling with eating disorders, we want the money, & Jameela wrote on Sunday.
& # 39; I have had the same opportunity to flog things like this, and I don't do it, so you don't have to. Thank you, next. & # 39;
Her reaction did not stop there, as Jameela continued: & # 39; Their bags are covered with the blood and diarrhea of teenage girls … & # 39;
But it does not seem that the promotion posts of the Kardashians will soon stop. Khloe, 34, is the most recent Kardashian who published a photo of Flat Tummy Tea, which she posted on Instagram in May.
Jameela, however, held on to her weapons when she spoke to Bustle about what people can expect from her when it comes to saying things she doesn't agree with.
& # 39; Do not bring toxicity into the world and I will leave you alone & # 39 ;, she said.
Not afraid: Jameela & # 39; s problems with the Kardashian family increased after talking to the New York Times in March
Not happy: at the time, Kim said she wasn't worried about Jameela's criticism. This encouraged the actress to call the family to fill their pockets
Controversial: the Kardashian family, including Kim, are known to promote flat Tummy Tea products on their Instagram pages
In addition to speaking about the Kardashians, Jameela also earlier replied to criticize Miley Cyrus for expressing her sexuality while performing on stage in 2013, and attacking Beyonce for showing too much skin tones in a 2014 video clip.

& # 39; I regret all the mistakes I made. I call myself a feminist in training, & Jameela admitted.
& # 39; I said things when I was younger – I didn't really have all the answers yet. I had not had any therapy yet. I didn't know who I was angry with. & # 39;
Jameela has found motivation to call out body shaming when she sees it.
She launched her I Weigh Instagram page last year to inspire people to celebrate what their body is out of weight.
The actress has also collaborated with a number of organizations, such as Aerie, to promote body positivity for people of all sizes.
The motivation to meet this goal came from her own work in the industry, Jameela said.
& # 39; Being in the middle of this industry and being used as a vessel to set unrealistic standards for other women – because I was photo shoppered, changed and starved – made me realize that, "Oh, my god, everything I thought it was was real was a lie when I was a teenager, I have to tell the other teens, & she said.
Bustle also spoke with Taylor Swift, who praised Jameela for her fight to put an end to & # 39; self-cruelty & # 39 ;.
"We are all so sick of feeling that our faces and bodies are an endless task list with improvements that need to be made," said Taylor, 29. & # 39; In my opinion, Jameela is a much needed crusader who fights the war against self-abuse.
& # 39; I love how fearless she is in pursuing the treacherous tricks that our perfection-obsessed society plays on women.
She continued: & # 39; Her savagery actually provides us with comfort and a voice that says: & # 39; These standards are ridiculous. Your body is enough as it is. & # 39;
