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.




Just because someone is popular doesn't mean they're nice or even sane.

We all learn that lesson the hard way. Everybody has their secrets, especially the people we think have it all.

School is a very emotional and frustrating time. And nobody truly knows how to properly deal.

The 'popular kids' are full of surprises.

So keep an eye on them.

And not for envy, for your own safety.

They're probably plotting something.

Everyone is on edge in this current climate.

And all it takes is one grievance committed by another to make a person snap.

Someone going postal could be the result of a significant other's infidelity, appalling customer service, or individuals on either side of an argument over abiding by certain health protocols.

And that changes day to day, or even by the hour.

I love to save money. And sometimes I tear up when I have to pay a bill that feels a little high.

I love to look at my bank account and watch the amount rise.

When it falls, I shudder.

So I will always look for a deal when shopping. Give me a clearance rack anytime.

But even in my delirium of thrift I can admit, that sometimes, there is an item or three where higher quality counts.

And higher quality often comes with a higher price tag.

So I spend what I have to... and then cry.
