Jameela Jamil is taking down the weight-shamers one screenshot at a time.
The Good Place star has hit out at a fashion and lifestyle blog for posting a picture of the Kardashian family with how much they weigh.
The post saw the Kardashians being tagged with their weight in kilograms, with the caption on the Instagram post reading: ‘Does Kim look like 56?!? Which weight are You?!?’
Jameela saw the offensive post on Instagram – and proceeded to, in her own words, go ‘on the war path’.
The 31-year-old wrote: ‘Who gives a FUCK what weight you are? What is this toxic bullshit?
‘This is how women are taught to value themselves. In Kg. GRIM.’
The former T4 host then took a selfie, and wrote: ‘I weigh: Lovely relationship. Great friends. I laugh every day. I love my job. I make an honest living. I’m financially independent. I speak out for women’s rights. I like my bingo wings. I like myself in spite of EVERYTHING I’ve been taught by the media to hate myself about. Fucking KG.’
Jameela’s followers praised her for the post and responded with their own versions of her picture, listing all the things about themselves a million times more important than their weight.
The actress, who plays the name-dropper supreme Tahani al-Jamil in Netflix’s The Good Place, is vocal about size-shaming, recently hitting out at ‘irresponsible’ influencers.

Jameela told The Cut: ‘It’s insane and criminal to have a platform and not use it for good. I think it’s really deeply irresponsible just to use your platform to plug products, like, Look at this razor that I bought. It’s like, Shut up! Talk about what’s going on in the world.
‘You don’t get to just get all the money and the nice shit and the $48 tea and then not have any responsibilities. If you call yourself an influencer on Instagram, you’re going straight to the Bad Place. How dare you. How dare you. What are you even influencing? Drink this weight-loss tea. Fuck off.’
