Jameela Jamil Calls Out Kim Kardashian's 'Obsession' With Body Image: 'This Is Harm She Can't Stop'

Alicia D'Aversa 25 Jun 2020

In the battle of the celebs, it always seems like it is Jameela Jamil against the Kardashian-Jenner team.

It's certainly the case right now, as Jameela popped OFF on an Instagram post against Kim Kardashian (mind you, it was surprisingly positive, despite the content that she was writing about).

You can always count on these two celebrities for drama.

Jameela Jamil is known for going off on Instagram in defense of feminism. She shuts down body shamers left and right!

And one of the families that she has constantly spoken about (or against) are the Kardashians!

Recently, Kim Kardashian posted a video of herself on Instagram, where fans were able to see her wearing a very tight corset.

Jameela responded, but instead of calling out Kim negatively, she gave a super thoughtful response to the video that was shared.

"I’ve received over 1000 DMs asking me to address this. The reason I didn’t jump on it immediately isn’t because I don’t think the post was damaging and disappointing. I do."

"It’s because the fact that you’re all messaging me about it, shows my work is done. I havent been trying to cancel Kim K. I was always trying to arm YOU with the knowledge to recognize for YOURSELVES that this is a [expletive] expectation of women, developed by the patriarchy."

"If YOU know that it’s problematic, reductive and irresponsible for her to perpetuate such a heavily impossible beauty standard to her impressionable fans... then you’re empowered and conscious and don’t need me."

"Kim, like many of us, has had decades of body image issues and obsession. This has been HEAVILY perpetuated by how much the media scrutinized her and her sisters over their appearances."

"She isn’t actively trying to harm you. She’s just so harmed and deluded into thinking this is what SHE needs to look like to be special and beautiful and she’s spilling it out onto her following."

"Is this wrong? YES. But I’m not sure she realizes that she’s doing to others what her idols did to her, in making her think a tiny waist is the key to femininity and sex appeal. We grew up in the era of Heroin Chic, where we were told you HAD to look like an addict starving to death, so to go from that..to being bullied about your body by the world?"

"This toxicity from someone who is smart and knows better, is a sign that this is harm she can’t stop doing."

"So there’s no point in screaming at her. The smart thing to do is to protect YOURSELF. YOU have the power. YOU control every Market. YOU choose what and who is trendy. Unfollow the people who tell you things that hurt your self esteem. Don’t let the debris of their damage spill out onto you."

"Unfollow people/brands that don’t make you feel powerful and happy and grateful for what you have."

Kim Kardashian has yet to respond to this powerful message.
