Her comebacks are second to none.
A warning to anyone coming for Jameela Jamil on Twitter: you’re in her house now.
Jamil uses Twitter like Daenerys Targaryen uses her dragons, which is to say, Twitter is a weapon she isn’t afraid to wield against those in the wrong. Stylist’s Woman of the Year – we named her thus at the 2019 Remarkable Women Awards – makes Twitter takedowns look like an art form.
Whether it’s taking Piers Morgan to task over his vile comments about gender fluidity or firing back at misogynists trying to police what she says on social media, Jamil isn’t afraid to call people out. Here are some of her best Twitter moments:
When she called Piers Morgan “England’s biggest shit stain”
When she pointed out everything wrong with a body-shaming Avon ad
When she responded to critics who called her a bad advocate for body positivity
When she begged famous women to stop talking about their “weight loss journeys”
When she said she hopes celebrities who promote detox teas “shit their pants in public”
When she called out the guy trying to police her social media presence
When she annihilated a bodyshaming magazine
Never stop telling it like it is, Jameela.
