Social media clapback queen Chrissy Teigen was recently exploited by weight-loss supplement company Keto Fit Premium. Besides the fact that these supplements falsely advertise their ability to help one lose weight quickly, the company also used fake quotes from Teigen to sell its product.

Needless to say, Teigen, a huge promoter of body positivity, is less than thrilled about it. In fact, she's threatening to sue the company for its "bullshit" narrative.

One detective fan named Holly Archibald spotted the fake Keto Fit Premium ad on Snapchat and let Teigen know immediately via Twitter. Yes, there are screenshots.

In the made-up article, Teigen supposedly says, "I got so skinny so fast I was concerned what I was doing was something illegal LOL," written exactly like that. 

Teigen responded within an hour, telling Archibald and other fans she's asked the company to remove it many times.

"This is completely made up bullshit," Teigen wrote. "F*ck this entire company for typing out such bullshit words." Well, then!

Because calling it out once wasn't enough, Teigen went out to say she will sue the company if it doesn't remove the ad.

"Whatever KETO FIT PREMIUM is, I will sue the shit out of you," she wrote. "Stop making up interviews about your shit product with fake celebrity endorsements." Teigen added a few more expletives and ensured people she's already reached out and the company has done nothing.

One user tagged the company in Teigen's message.

Although, upon investigation, the @KetoFitPremium Twitter account is either fake itself or rarely updated.

First of all, who in their right mind would choose Teigen, out of all celebrities, to write a fake ad about?

Teigen is very much in tune with social media. She reads everything and is not afraid to call people (or companies) out on their mistakes. Plus, she's a huge advocate for body confidence. Out of all the celebrities the brand could've chosen, Teigen is the least likely to fall for a fake diet pill.

I mean, if you're going to make up stories, at least make them believable. 

One user pointed out how poorly written the ad was as well. It sounds like a page taken out of SEO practices 101. How many times can they fit the name of the product into one paragraph? And why is the name of the author at the beginning different from the one at the end?

Honestly, the only way this ad could be worse is if it featured Jameela Jamil.

Jamil's been slamming celebrities who endorse diet pills and other products that promote weight loss. Like Teigen, she's a huge body positivity supporter.

The fact that Snapchat actually approved this ad is actually comical.

"Fabricate endorsements and exploit people's insecurities! We're in business!" one user joked. BTW, a quick Google search pulled up tons of seemingly fake websites for the weight loss pills. Take that as you will.

Snapchat responded to Teigen's complaints by apologizing and suspending the Keto Fit Premium company account.

"We have a zero tolerance policy towards fraudulent ads that feature fake celebrity endorsements. The company involved has been suspended from the Snapchat platform and the ad has been removed," the Snapchat Twitter account wrote.

But nearly everyone thought the apology was inauthentic.

"You obviously don't care unless you're put on blast like this," one user pointed out to Snapchat.

One fan on Twitter supported Teigen's plan to sue.

However, rather than suing Keto Fit Premium, the user insisted Teigen just take down Snapchat once and for all (not a bad idea if you ask me!).

Regardless of whether she chooses to take action, we're proud of Teigen for speaking up about this rather than writing it off.

It's important that influential celebrities speak out about not only fake ads, but the fake diet pills themselves. Young people tend to believe anything endorsed by celebrities, so thank you, Teigen, for shedding light on this matter!

With celebrities like Teigen, Jamil, Demi Lovato, and Lili Reinhart, calling out diet culture in every shape and form, we're on the way to a healthier, happier society.
