According to Jameela Jamil, Khloé Kardashian has something to explain – but can “see why” she is upset about a recent photo leak.
The 36-year-old reality star recently made headlines after an unedited bikini photo came online without her permission. It was promptly scrubbed from the internet under the reported threat of legal action by the star’s famous family.
Jamil said on Instagram on Wednesday – after news of the photo’s removal was announced – that she is’ furious’ at the Kardashian family for perpetuating ‘fat phobia and impossible beauty standards’, but added that she’ TOTALLY can see why they are so obsessed with presenting as whatever is society’s newest ideal of ‘perfect’. “
The actress said the Kardashian family was “harassed and bullied to within an inch of their lives” by the public and demanded that “this cycle of anti-feminist behavior must end on both sides.”

“They need to stop the lies. THE PUBLIC AND THE MEDIA SHOULD STOP BULLYING ABOUT THEIR LOOKS,” Jamil continued. “Otherwise it’s just a vicious cycle.”
She closed her note with a strong and hopeful message about defying beauty standards.
Jamil, 35, weighed in again on Twitter on Thursday, sharing a response to Kardashian’s statement, in which Kardashian said she felt “ busy ” and “ constantly ridiculous ” for looking different from her famous sisters for years.
“It’s almost unbearable trying to live up to the impossible standards that the public has set for me,” said Kardashian.

Jamil noted that she was referring to this ideology and that Kardashian was “bullied in this state of mind.”
“This is what I said. She was bullied in this state of mind,” the actress wrote. “But this is also a very good time to admit surgery, thin out photos and videos, and stop being part of the culture that makes girls like her hate themselves.”
They added: “No more diet products. No more ‘revenge body’.”
In a follow-up tweet, the “Good Place” actress said everyone “loses” when “diet culture wins.”
“Even the people who make money by promoting it,” she said clarified
A critical critic of body image standards, Jamil has spoken out in the past against the Kardashian clan for promoting weight loss products and Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS maternity line for promoting beauty standards.
Kardashian representatives declined to comment.
In addition to sparking controversy for Jamil, Khloé received a lot of love from her famous sisters in the comments of her statement on Instagram.
