Jameela Jamil is clarifying that she was not calling out Kim Kardashian‘s Skims maternity shapewear line and instead, was trying to open up about body shaming during pregnancy.
It all started when Jameela tweeted, “It would be so cool if pregnant people could just be allowed to be pregnant and get bigger and not be self conscious, and enjoy the miracle taking place inside their body and not have to worry about feeling embarrassed/shamed that their body is changing for an amazing reason.”
Many believed this tweet was directed at Kim for revealing her new line, which caused numerous headlines including one that read, “Kim Kardashian Responded To Backlash Over Her Maternity Shapewear Line After Jameela Jamil And Chrissy Teigen Got Involved.”
Jameela took to Instagram on Monday morning (September 14) to write, “This is annoying. They weren’t responding to me as I wasn’t one of the people saying the product wasn’t safe. I’d already read Kim’s description of the product before I spoke. I was only talking about the discourse online around body shaming (that popped up due to the backlash that I had nothing to do with) during pregnancy and people wearing awkward to piss in shape wear specifically to look slimmer rather than for support.”
“Bored of my name being used to drag me into sh*t that I’m not trying to be involved in. If I was calling her out, I would just call her out, I’ve hardly been shy about it in the past. I’m not a passive aggressive person. I’m extremely direct. From what I understand her product is safe. But there is definitely a huge societal problem with the way pregnant people feel they have to look while making a baby. (Not to mention the drama and pressure of post pregnancy bodies… a whole other nightmare that we as a society have to tackle.),” she posted.
Jameela has publicly called out Kim in the past.
The backlash actually got so bad for Kim that she personally responded.
