Jameela Jamil Responds to Piers Morgan's British 'Vogue' Criticism
31 July 2019
Just in case you've been living under a rock, Meghan Markle served as the guest editor for British Vogue's venerated September issue. However, instead of putting herself on the cover, the Duchess of Sussex opted to put an arsenal of amazing changemakers such as Gemma Chan,Yara Shahidi, and Jameela Jamil front-and-center. And, needless to say, Piers Morgan just had to say something.
Following a preview of the forthcoming cover, Morgan decided to give his unsolicited opinion on Jamil's inclusion.
*NEW: One of Meghan's 'kind & inspiring' female-empowering Vogue 'heroines' is @jameelajamil - who called @Beyonce a 'stripper', said @MileyCyrus was a 'vagina with no platform' & told @Rihanna to 'put your m*nge away.' https://t.co/u5A652tz7ypic.twitter.com/kj8U9Rn5YC— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 29, 2019
Dubbing it a "hypocritical super-woke Vogue stunt," Morgan decided to base his argument on some judgmental things Jamil said in the past (things he, notably, wouldn't hesitate to say himself). That said, he also didn't acknowledge the fact that people can learn, apologize, grow, and change — something that Jamil said she's tried to do.
"My PINNED tweet is all of the mistakes I made, owning up to being problematic when I was young. I have nothing to hide," Jamil responded. "You are old and still a problematic slut-shaming, fat-shaming, misogynist, irrelevant shit stain smeared across our country."
And she didn't stop there. Jamil's final comment?
"He is just the thirstiest bitch alive." See her response, below.
