Everyone, say hello to Jameela Jamil, one of the stars of The Good Place and the creator of the body-positivity Instagram account, @i_weigh.
Well, uh, the other day she was minding her own business at the gym when, unprompted, a stranger decided to come up to her and tell her what he thought about her body.
Being a loud and proud supporter of body positivity, she responded to the body-shamer with a video on Twitter.
"So this was fun, I was just leaving the gym and a man I did not know approached me and asked me what workout I’d just been doing, so I told him that I’d been cycling, because I have anxiety and that’s why I come to the gym."
And he decided to tell me without prompt that he’s seen me around, and he always thinks, "Ah, what a shame, she could look so amazing" and "There’s so many different things I could do to improve my body." So he essentially walked up to me and body-shamed me in the middle of the gym. Don’t do that. Don’t walk up to someone and impose your belief of what you think they should look like onto them. Don’t do that to women, don’t do that to men, don’t do that to anyone, ever.
