Jameela Jamil Reacts To UK Media Regarding Racist News About She And Megan Markle

The Good Place’ actress Jameela Jamil responded to Express.co.uk for its news titled “Meghan Markle’s new best friend? Luvvie Jameela Jamil “quarantines’ with Harry and Meghan,” and criticized hostile acts of UK media.

The actress disclaimed the news regarding she and Megan were best friends and together in lockdown; stated that she met Markle once ever, and just supported her against the racist behavior of the media. Jamil said she was subjected to press harassment because she spoke out to defense Markle, added:

“Now they are hyperbolizing some relationship they have decided I have with her to make it seem as if I am saying these things out of ‘loyalty’ rather than because it’s right to call out misogyny and racism when you see it because an attack against her, is an attack on all WOC/Black women.”

Then the first solo female presenter of the BBC Radio, wrote Markle was the symbol of hope and power, and the main target of the racist media. She also criticized the extraordinary “journalism” system by adding:

“As someone who used to believe what I read in the papers, seeing how this machine works from the inside is truly extraordinary. Keep this in mind when you read about her, me, or really any woman in media. Especially if she has any color to her skin. It’s almost as if they don’t have something important to talk about… like a pandemic, global economic crisis, climate disaster, political unrest….”

Following the post, many notables names left comments to support Jamil. Here are some of them:

“So proud of you for calling them out” said, Demi Lovato.

“Well done!!! They don’t know what to do with women who simply tell it like it is. 👏” commented, Sophia Bush.

“Oh my lol. The media loves games. You check Under your bed tho.???” added, Dashaun Wesley.

Besides, shortly after the actress published her declamation through this post, Express.co.uk removed the mentioned news from its official website.

I’ve met this woman once ever. Best friends now living together during lockdown?! Since the first time I spoke out against the UK (mostly tabloid) media over their racist behavior towards her, I’ve been subjected to press harassment, my family started being harassed and offered money for dirt on me within a week of my first tweet in defense of her. What has followed has been a plethora of lies and rumors about me, set up to discredit me as an individual and convince people I am “crazy” to devalue my opinion to anyone who may realize I am right. Now they are hyperbolizing some relationship they have decided I have with her to make it seem as if i am saying these things out of “loyalty” rather than because it’s right to call out misogyny and racism when you see it because an attack against her, is an attack on all WOC/Black women. She’s the symbol of hope and power to be deconstructed before any of us get any delusions of grandeur. As someone who used to believe what I read in the papers, seeing how this machine works from the inside is truly extraordinary. Keep this in mind when you read about her, me or really any woman in media. Especially if she has any colour to her skin. It’s almost as if they don’t have something important to talk about… like a pandemic, global economic crisis, climate disaster, political unrest….
