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.

Raise your hands--who had an emo phase in the 2000s? I know I did, as did a lot of people around me. All of us heard “It's just a phase" from our parents at some point, but when you're a kid, life as we know it seems so permanent.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
