This is the second day in a row that this site has thrown shade - or in this case blatant criticism - at Jameela Jamil. She is one of the few celebrities using their platform to bring attention to how our culture judges women on their size and this site picks her to focus on? Did she kick your puppy?

This is the best piece I’ve read on jezebel in years.
While I see what you’re saying, this is far too good of an opportunity to pass up. I think it’s actually showing that “excellence” is a myth, because even AFTER achieving so much, they are STILL refused pay.
