Jameela Jamil, the well-known actor and activist, released a statement through her verified social media account and touched on the devastating impacts of certain media outlets on people.
Jamil, best known for starring in the sitcom ‘The Good Place,’ first released a tweet that reads:
“I almost killed myself a year ago because of Piers Morgan’s relentless campaign of lies and hatred against me last February. I’m glad I’m still alive today for many reasons.”
Actually, this tweet came after Morgan criticized Meghan Markle for her recent interview with Oprah Winfrey. After tweeting, the actor jumped into his Instagram account and posted the screenshot of the tweet and added a lengthy caption to say that the thing that happened to her was not particular; Morgan does it always. Jamil wrote:
“Watching him walk off set for being remotely criticized, like a toddler throwing a tantrum… after YEARS of him belittling those of us who couldn’t handle global pile ons… was deeply satisfying.”
The actor stated that Morgan, who tried to slam Jamil by posting some messages from ‘Love Island’ host Caroline Flack regarding her, would move on working for networks and it was not okay.
“As long as he’s out of our mainstream consciousness and in the shadows with all the incels and bigots. Now we don’t have to keep watching young marginalized people screamed at and gaslit over their own marginalization anymore, on mainstream broadcasting. The hard right networks don’t get good guests or much coverage.”
The actor, who previously praised Markle for her brave acts, also reminded her fans and followers that when they hear anything bad about a woman in mainstream broadcast, they need to go to the source. She concluded:
“Not the carefully crafted misogyny laced Burnalists who delight in and profit from our pain and humiliation.”
