    Jameela Jamil is a high profile figure that is never afraid to make noise, taking pride in standing up for what she believes in, whether it’s shaming Kim Kardashian for advertising appetite suppressants or calling out Georgia’s new anti abortion legislation.

    This week, the Good Place actress used her voice to take on Piers Morgan, calling out the controversial TV presenter after he mentioned her in an attempted take down of the Duchess of Sussex.

    Meghan Markle made news this week for guest-editing the September issue of British Vogue, something that unsurprisingly has received a bit of backlash.

    One of the talking points was the cover, featuring a host of female game changers from Gemma Chan to Jameela Jamil.

    Offended by the cover and Jameela’s presence, Piers called it a ‘hypocritical super-woke Vogue stunt’, taking to his Twitter account to make a provocative statement.

    ‘One of Meghan’s “kind & inspiring” female-empowering “Vogue” “heroines” is Jameela Jamil,’ he tweeted, ‘— who called Beyonce a stripper, said Miley Cyrus was a vagina with no platform, & told Rihanna to “put your m*nge away.”’

    Jameela however was having none of it, taking to her social media platform to respond:

    ‘My PINNED tweet is all of the mistakes I made, owning up to being problematic when I was young. I have nothing to hide. You are old and still a problematic slut-shaming, fat-shaming, misogynist, irrelevant shit stain smeared across our country.’

    She concluded: ‘He is just the thirstiest bitch alive.’

    Well, that’s that.
