Jameela Jamil Blasts Khloe Kardashian: Stop Fat-Shaming Women!

by at .

Jameela Jamil's one-woman crusade against the weight loss industry continues.

The The Good Place star's latest target is a social media influencer who needs no introduction: Khloe Kardashian.

Is Jameela's criticism a rare miss, or is she right on the money?

Khloe Kardashian took to Instagram on Thursday to share one of those goofy text posts that are designed to be relatable to people of every age.

"2 things a girl wants," the post begins with white text on a soft pink background.

The text reads: "1) lose weight 2) eat."

Those two activities are often seen as contradictory.

Losing weight is often a social pressure or personal desire, often to meet certain beauty standards.

Eating, of course, is required for people to live. It is also intensely enjoyable.

Those who eat less in order to lose weight or wish that they could bring themselves to do so could relate to Khloe's post.

On Twitter, Jameela Jamil was not amused by Khloe's Instagram Story.

"This makes me sad," Jameela expressed.

"I hope," she wrote, that "my daughter grows up wanting more than this."

Jameela added: "I want more than this."

Alongside her tweet, she included a screenshot of Khloe's post.

Jameela made it clear that she does not harbor any ill will towards Khloe.

"Sending love to this poor woman," she emphasized.

"This industry did this to her," Jameela accused. "The media did it to her."

She wrote: "They fat shamed her into a prison of self critique."

"Dear girls," Jameela concluded. "WANT MORE THAN THIS."

She finished her tweet with a large red heart emoji.

Jameela Jamil has been taking aim at a number of celebrities on social media.

In particular, she has excoriated those who promote weight-loss products.

From "fit tea" to appetite suppressing lollipops, she sees social media influencers push these products upon young and impressionable followers.

In real life, of course, these products often do little more than cause diarrhea.

These are not the tools that wealthy influencers use to keep their bodies slender.

For that, they have nutritionists, personal trainers, and sometimes even surgery.

There is no "weight-loss secret." it's money. Just like with everything else.

And Jameela doesn't want to see young people damage their health because they think that they're simply not trying hard enough.

One might ask what Jameela, one of the most beautiful human beings on the planet, could possibly know about body image issues.

The answer is: quite a lot.

She has been open about her own experience with eating disorders, and revealed that even her reproductive organs were damaged by it.

Even now, she says that makeup technicians have offered to hide stretch marks on her boobs.

She is a model and actress, so she knows that she is in the spotlight. Fortunately, she can now handle it.

Her concern is for countless impressionable young women (and men and those who are neither) who are so desperate to be thin that they'll try anything.

Khloe Seduces

Jameela points out that widespread bullying is what pushed Khloe to transform her look.

Khloe is fitness-obsessed these days. That was not always the case.

In that accusation, we'd say that perhaps Jameela went a little too far.

(I love Jameela, but she sounded a little patronizing -- it's not her or anyone's place to speak for Khloe and her weight-loss motives)

But given the scope of Khloe's influence, being constructively critical of her post was extremely fair.
