Jameela Jamil is slaying the internet, and life in general.
The actress has been an outspoken critic of unrealistic beauty standards, perpetuated by magazines airbrushing their models.
She's also been been campaigning hard against dieting culture, and recently called out Kourtney Kardashian for promoting a diet drink. Jamil had described it as ‘promoting eating disorders'.
The radio host recently shared a technique she uses to deal with men who ask her to send them naked pictures.
(By the way, unless explicitly stated as something a woman will do, it’s disrespectful and misogynistic to demand them from women, especially those you don’t know!)
Taking to Twitter, she shared an interaction she had with a man on Instagram.
He direct messaged her with a screengrab of one of her photos, followed by the word, "sexy".
The man, whose display picture features a child, sent another picture of herself and demanded : "Send nudes."
What did Jamil do? Well, she obliged. Kind of.
Don’t ask me for nudes.
@jameelajamil Wow...does the man not know how the interwebs work? He's about to be famous. https://t.co/4XA74pVQbV — Mimi (@Mimi)
