According to Jameela Jamil, Khloé Kardashian has some explanations to make – but can “see why” she is upset about a recent photo leak.
The 36-year-old reality star made headlines recently after an unedited bikini photo came online without her permission. It was immediately scrubbed from the internet under the reported threat of lawsuits from the star’s famous family.
Jamil said on Instagram on Wednesday – after the news of the removal of the image broke out – that she is “furious” at the Kardashian family for maintaining “fat phobia and impossible beauty standards”, but added that she “can COMPLETELY see why they is so obsessed with presenting, no matter what society̵
The actor said the Kardashian family was “harassed and bullied and investigated within an inch of their lives” by the public and demanded that “this cycle of anti-feminist behavior should end on both sides.”

“They have to stop lying. THE PUBLIC AND MEDIA SHOULD STOP MOVING YOUR VIEW,” Jamil continued. “It’s just a vicious circle otherwise.”
She ended her note with an empowering and hopeful message to defy beauty standards.
Jamil, 35, weighed in once again via Twitter on Thursday, sharing a response to Kardashian’s statement, in which Kardashian recounted years of feeling “pressure” and “constant ridicule” to look different from her famous sisters.
“It is almost unbearable to try to live up to the impossible standards that the public has set for me,” Kardashian said.

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

Kris Jenner, the family matriarch, also chimed in.
