Detox tea company (Why does that sound so familiar?) is slammed online for using image of eating disorder survivor in ad without permission.

SkinnyMe Tea is an Australia-based “teatox” brand selling products that it claims will reduce bloat and promote weight loss, but that ultimately feed into the age-old idea that women are not good enough the way they are.

It’s one of many brands touted in paid social media posts by the Kardashians and other influencers as supposedly helping them to achieve their weight goals. Critics, like “The Good Place” actress and body image advocate Jameela Jamil, argue that these companies are pushing dubious ― and even dangerous ― products. Jamil, who refers to detox teas as laxatives, frequently calls out the brands and those who promote them and points out that a lot more goes into a celebrity’s often unrealistic appearance than drinking ― or pretending to drink ― a tea.

SkinnyMe Tea faced Jamil’s fury last week when its Instagram account reposted a photo of Christina Grasso, an eating disorder survivor and co-founder of The Chain, a nonprofit aimed at supporting women struggling with eating disorders in the fashion and entertainment industries. The brand captioned its repost “little self-love does wonders.”

The hypocrisy of a brand that essentially sells weight loss products claiming to promote self-love is not lost on us ― and was not lost on Grasso, either. But she said she wasn’t surprised when she noticed that her handle had been tagged. “This was actually not the first time this has happened to me, so I unfortunately I wasn’t shocked,” she told HuffPost.

Now, this is the type of story that I would typically not give two shits about, pardon the pun, but it reminded me of someone that I think we all know. 

Of course, Bristol would attach her name to a product which creates piles and piles of excrement. 

In some ways, she was born to create shit.

However, these products are extremely dangerous and can cause dehydration, problems with the colon, irritable bowel syndrome and long term eating disorders. 

Recent pictures of Bristol show her looking much too thin and not terribly healthy.

If she keeps this lifestyle up for long there is a good chance that she will end up being a spokesperson for anorexia nervosa or the dangers of being an uninformed unintelligent “influencer.”

    Barstool says: “I get asked about my workout routines quite a bit, and although I love working out, I have been tooo busy to really make time for it . . . ”

    TRANSLATION: “I’ve never worked out a day in my life, don’t plan to do it, that’s one reason Dumbkota and I split . . . he worked out all the time and I refuse to sweat.”

    Bristol has been busy with the tabloids:

    She has been silently living in terror because of a stalker.

    She knows her whole being and life is one big fat lie. So she sucked out all her fat and got new horseteeth and loads of other plastic surgery to get rid of that other person she is. I guess in her IQless world, she thinks if she remakes herself all her mistakes go away?
    The good news for the world is that anorexics usually stop menstruating, so we are spared more genetically challenged offspring from at least one Palin.

      Not to mention the needed ‘jaw alignment’ surgery. She thought that she was going to be the next Kardashian. Who told her that, Mommie Dearest? Of course, and engagement ring purchased and presented Rascal Flatts concert ALL courtesy of Mommie. That things turned out the way they did, well, no one with half a brain expected different. I still laugh at the non-wedding reception picture with Boopsie’s crooked finger in front of MOH’s face laying the law down.

      I thought the same about her teeth. They’re veneers, but they look like full-on dentures. Horse dentures.

    I may get slammed for this, but so what. Our daughter decided she was going to quit college after two years and marry her HS sweetheart, have a bunch of babies, and took up with Lu La Roe to make some cash in order to call herself a stay-at-home Mom living the life. “Danger Will Robinson” warnings unheeded from stupid Mom and Dad, and that didn’t turn out well, now did it. No offense to people that hustle shit online, but if she had just stayed with that education because she had the grades and now she has what she has. Bristol is the perfect spokesperson for poop teas.

    • PoopTown March 29, 2019 at 4:35 pm

      I hope that you cut her off financially and are making her live in her own hell of overbreeding and underperforming financially? I had a friend that pulled that crap, from a wealthy family, quit college had 4 kids in 6 years and her parents disinherited her. 3 of the 4 kids went to foster homes and then into adoption and the 4th was taken by one of the fathers. Sometimes tough love is the only way to insure that things work out how they should.

    Bristol has looked anorexic for a while now.

    • Anonymous March 26, 2019 at 5:50 pm

      She should also stay out of shadows taking pictures.
      You can see everything…..looks like she’s finally learning SOMETHING.
      I just laugh. She really is stupid.

    Bristol had her face lengthened with a big handful of silicone stuffed into in her jaw and her chin over several months and then recently she had her teeth lengthened to match her long face. She is seriously disordered.

    If you click on the #teamipartner hashtag you can see that there are thousands of losers just like Bristol Palin flogging that stupid product and what a sorry bunch they are.

    I am a toilet paper salesperson…. I love Bristol.

  8. Anonymous March 26, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    Bristol’s horse teeth is all I see now. That woman is fake from head to toe. The many “enhancements” make her look like she’s in her 40s. YAWN… easy money for that woman..no matter how…

    • Anonymous March 26, 2019 at 6:57 pm

      None of us thought she was actually going to work for a living, and we were right. Jealous, nope, not here, what an utter fool and she’ll raise that spawn to be just like her.

  9. Tanja March 26, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    With all due respect, I don’t think its appropriate for you. or anyone commenting on Bristol’s weight. First you quote someone about accepting women as they are and in the next breath you call her anorexic. Thats just misogynistic bullshit.

    • Anonymous March 26, 2019 at 7:18 pm

      You obviously don’t understand the difference, Tanya. I do, and I’m a woman. I’ve followed Gryph 11 years now.

    • Anonymous March 26, 2019 at 8:14 pm

      Just me, Tanja, but I celebrate women who make something of themselves. Not wannabes taking the easy way out whose only claim to fans is spreading their legs.

    Shs’s going to be one lonely old woman. Sure, a romp in the hay here and there that means nothing but long haul no true man would put up with that shit.

  11. puck March 26, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    she is the only palin making honest monery. for crap, yes, but she is making some of her own money. i guess that is how she paid for the chompers.

    • anon March 26, 2019 at 10:19 pm

      If Sarah doesn’t go ballistic over this, we know FOR SURE LAST CHANCE that she doesnt give a shit about her kid.
      Or maybe its more proof trig isnt hers.

      If obama team did this, palin would have gone fucking ballistic 24/7.

      FUCK YOU PALIN. AND TAKE THAT SHIT TEA DAUGHTER WITH YOU.

    Walter Isaacson sits down with Republican strategist Frank Luntz to discuss the toxic rhetoric in America’s politics, and why he’s given up hope for a
    United America. “Can you imagine McCain/Lieberman” “I apologize”

    Just think.

  13. Anon March 27, 2019 at 10:45 am

    She kinda reminds me of Jodi Arais, just sayin’…

    Stool began her “weight-loss” quest with liposuction prior to the “DWTS All-Stars” where she made her “triumphant” return much more thin than her first quest, albeit still unable to dance. It’s rather amazing that she went through another two pregnancies without gaining any weight, perhaps she is doing the tea during pregnancy but I really think she combines the tea with an anorexic outlook towards food and bulimic urges when she overeats. I guess she’s lucky that the last two crotchfruits she pooped out are as normal as they are, albeit the last one was very small at birth.

    I’d hate to wish an eating disorder on anyone but Stool sure seems as if she doesn’t consume much food as she is, if her sister is to be believed, holding at 98 pounds. She doesn’t ever post about working out so the only conclusion is she practices extreme calorie restriction and as she moves into her 30’s this will manifest in an assortment of ailments that might likely leave her 3, 4, 5, 6? children without a mother, but hey, girls of low intellectual quotient such as Stool will always remain more in charge of their physical appearance even if it is detrimental to their health.

    Levi and Sunny may end up with full custody of Tripp sooner than they ever thought, same with DumKota as this chick is literally wasting away.

      Let her, it would be a blessing to many.
