Demi Lovato Has Hopped On The Laxative Tea Hustling Train

April 25, 2017 / Posted by:

I was under the impression that Demi Lovato was a successful(ish) singer who had the type of career that didn’t necessitate having to hawk useless stuff on Instagram like reality TV whores. I was wrong. Demi is now shilling for laxative tea brand TeaMi, Instagram’s first favorite sponsored content scam-style product after hair gummies.

Demi is currently on vacation, and one of the many bikini selfies she recently took featured the ubiquitous TeaMi tumbler. Demi copy and pasted a caption that I’m guessing was provided to her by a TeaMi intern. Demi encouraged her 56.9 million followers to waste their money join her on a 30-day tea detox.

“This year is all about #selflove truly taking care of myself and exercising has changed everything for me. @teamiblends has #sponsored my 30 day detox challenge to help get rid of toxins and my bloating for summer. I’m on Day 7 right now & it’s so easy! I just drink their tea every single day in my favorite purple tumbler. I love taking it to shoots and the studio with me. If you are ready to be your best YOU this summer, use my Code: DEMI for 20% off your detox program when you check out! I want all of you to do the challenge with me! #thankyouteami #teamitumbler #healthylifestyle”

Demi is an outspoken crusader for body positivity, and she once rallied against the emptiness of celebrity culture. So it feels a little weird and cheap to be blatantly shilling for diarrhea tea.

I shouldn’t question her motivation. Like she says above, this is obviously all about #selflove and being the best version of yourself this summer. And I’m sure she’ll soon have more tips for achieving such a goal. I can’t wait for Demi to tell us how to love ourselves more with her favorite at home teeth-whitening system and booty-growing cream.
