“2 Things a Girl Wants: 1) Lose Weight. 2) Eat,” Koko’s post read.

Jamil then shared a screenshot of the Story on Twitter, writing that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made her “sad” for desperately craving to be skinny.

“This makes me sad,” she wrote. “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.”


After people started accusing Jamil of dragging Kardashian, she added on Twitter that she is unapologetic in her firm stance against fat-shaming.

“I don’t care how humorless or annoying anyone will find me, I will make it too difficult to get away with fat-phobia, fat jokes, fat shaming and food shaming, and frankly anything that encourages eating disorder mentality. I will annoy you into submission. Watch me.”


Now, the British actress has clarified her comments, saying that her attack was aimed at the media for fat-shaming Khloé all these years, rather than at the reality star herself.

“All that happened is I saw something that she posted on the internet,” she told Variety. “I don’t dislike her, by the way. I like the Kardashians, I think they all seem like nice, intelligent businesswomen but I posted a thing I saw on her Instagram and I expressly criticised the press, not her, for fat shaming her to the point where she relentlessly posts this kind of content and the press turned it into me criticising her because they were trying to deflect from the fact that I was fully calling them out.”

She continued, “That was the only misconception, just deliberate diversion tactics from the media and I see you, I know what you’re doing and I know how to call you out.”

She also believes that she’s “on the right side here” in “fighting for the mental health of people,” adding that she has “mass support” from the public and the better part of the media.
