Jameela Jamil has weighed in on the media storm surrounding Khloé Kardashian, whose team recently deleted an unedited, natural-looking photo of the star, claiming it was posted without permission.
“We are all screwed when we accept the culture of diet,” wrote the actress from The Good Place On Instagram. “Although I am still furious at how much [las Kardashian] they perpetuate fat phobia and impossible beauty standards … I TOTALLY see why they are so obsessed with presenting themselves as society’s latest ideal of ‘perfect’. Because they were harassed, intimidated and scrutinized up to an inch of their lives. “
Jamil posted his comment after Kardashian wrote a note explaining his perspective on the natural-looking image that has been the subject of extensive discussion.
“In truth, the pressure, the constant ridicule and the judgment of my entire life to be perfect and meet the standards of others for how I should see myself has been too much to bear,” Kardashian wrote.
Kardashian also wrote in her post that she views filters and photo editing in a similar way to makeup or manicure, that is, another way to “present myself to the world as I want to be seen.”
“It is exactly what I will continue to do unapologetically,” he continued. “My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It is no longer up to anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable or not ”.

For his part, Jamil said the scrutiny Kardashian faces on a daily basis is “unacceptable” and “now would be a good time to dump diet culture in the f *** it bucket, stop editing photos, admit the help you get. See how it goes and be transparent with your fans ”.
“We cannot continue to treat ourselves and others in this way. What is happening to him is not funny. It’s sad for everyone, “Jamil added on Instagram.” One good thing is that at least young girls can breathe knowing they are trying to meet false standards, and give themselves a break when taking vacation photos. And maybe Khloé will start posting more. raw photos and be a role model for self-acceptance. “
According to a report by Page SixMany users who reposted Kardashian’s image and praised it as “beautiful” have since received “legal threats” calling for its removal, as the photo was apparently not approved by Kardashian.
Tracy Romulus, KKW Brands chief marketing officer, said in a statement: “The edited color photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted on social media without permission due to an assistant’s mistake.”
He added: “Khloé looks beautiful, but it is within the copyright owner’s right not to want an image removed that is not intended to be published.”
