Body activist Jameela Jamil was along among the commenters, who wrote "Lol Celeste", and recently took to her own Instagram account to call out Kardashian West's "damaging" video.
In the original post, the 39-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star showed off her smaller-than-ever waist in a Mr. Pearl corset, and Jamil admitted she needed to take her time to respond to the video.
“I’ve received over 1000 DMs asking me to address this," she started. "The reason I didn’t jump on it immediately isn’t because I don’t think the post was damaging and disappointing. I do. It’s because the fact that you’re all messaging me about it, shows my work is done. I havent been trying to cancel Kim K. I was always trying to arm YOU with the knowledge to recognize for YOURSELVES that this is a bullshit expectation of women, developed by the patriarchy. If YOU know that it’s problematic, reductive and irresponsible for her to perpetuate such a heavily impossible beauty standard to her impressionable fans…then you’re empowered and conscious and don’t need me."
“Kim, like many of us, has had decades of body image issues and obsession," Jamil continued. "This has been HEAVILY perpetuated by how much the media scrutinised her and her sisters over their appearances. She isn’t actively trying to harm you. She’s just so harmed and deluded into thinking this is what SHE needs to look like to be special and beautiful and she’s spilling it out onto her following. Is this wrong? YES. But I’m not sure she realises that she’s doing to others what her idols did to her, in making her think a tiny waist is the key to femininity and sex appeal. We grew up in the era of Heroin Chic, where we were told you HAD to look like an addict starving to death, so to go from that..to being bullied about your body by the world? This toxicity from someone who is smart and knows better, is a sign that this is harm she can’t stop doing,” she continued.
It's also not the first time Celeste has looked to the Kardashian-Jenner family for inspiration for her parodies.
