Jameela Jamil, star of NBC's The Good Place and advocate for body positivity, recently responded to an Instagram story from Khloé Kardashian on Twitter. Though Kardashian was likely only posting the meme to get a few relatable laughs, Jamil believed it was propping up a harmful mindset women are pressured into having.


On her Instagram story, Khloe posted a meme which read:

"2 Things a girl wants: 1) Lose Weight 2) Eat"


Twitter: @JameelaJamil

Jamil responded, saying:

"This makes me sad. I hope my daughter grows up wanting more than this. I want more than this. Sending love to this poor woman. This industry did this to her. The media did it to her. They fat shamed her into a prison of self critique. Dear girls, WANT MORE THAN THIS."


Twitter was loving Jameela's perspective:






Some people, however, thought that Jamil was taking what was meant to be a joke a bit too seriously:



Jamil is known for standing up for body positivity whenever she can. She's clapped back at celebrities like Iggy Azalea, Cardi B., and Amber Rose for selling "shady diet products," once going so far as to tweet:

"When will these women who are covered in plastic surgery stop telling their followers to drink a laxative to look like them? It's so embarrassing and it's so encouraging of eating disordered behavior. BE BETTER ALLIES!"



Jamil has a history with the products many of her fellow celebrities endorse, and she doesn't want to see any young girls fall into the same path she did.



At one point, Cardi B tried to respond to Jamil, writing in a comment:

"I will never sh*t my pants cause there's public restrooms everywhere… oooo and bushes."

Jamil did not let the joke slide.

When some online began accusing Jamil of wanting to "cancel" women, she responded thoughtfully:


When all is said and done, Jamil seems to have the right take.




Reasons to be single #1... you avoid monkeypox, apparently.

#2... all your money is yours. And Uncle Sam's.

#3... more room in bed.

#4... the list is endless.

Not to be down on love, love is great.

But love doesn't have to be the full journey.

The films with inspiring storylines, brilliant cinematography, or Oscar-worthy performances are the most memorable.

But there are films that have the opposite effect on moviegoers, making them wish they never saw them in the first place, despite critical acclaim in their respective genres.

There's nothing more unsettling than waking up in the middle of the night.

Particularly if what woke you up was a loud, unsettling creepy sound.

The only thing that could make the experience more nightmarish is opening your eyes and seeing something that makes you jump out of bed.

Most of the time, what ends up scaring the living daylights out of us is nothing more than a pile of laundry we forgot to put away or a cat's shadow, and find ourselves laughing about it weeks or even days later

Others however, haven't been so lucky, waking up to discover they were actually in legitimate danger.

People Break Down The Times A Bully Absolutely Went Too Far

Bullying seems to be a concept that has always been around. It comes in all forms, and in varying degrees.

Sometimes, the bullying can be mild and temporary. That doesn't make it okay, but it does make the bullying easier to deal with.

Other times, the bullying is harsh, and can even go too far. Sometimes, that can mean relentless teasing. Othertimes, it can mean that a bully took their torment to a new level, even proceeding into physical violence.

Whatever the case, when bullying goes too far, it sticks with you. Sometimes, you get revenge. Other times, you just deal with it until you can find a solution. Whichever method you choose, you will never forget it.
