E! News Actually Called "The Good Place" Actor Jameela Jamil "Kamilah Al-Jamil"

Was this a joke or a screw-up?

The Good Place actor Jameela Jamil showed up at the Golden Globes totally channelling her character Tahani Al-Jamil.

Wearing @M_Lhuillier 👋 Golden Globes I’m on my way!

In other words, looking totally flawless.

But then E! dared to identify her as Kamilah Al-Jamil!

THEY CALLED HER KAMILAH AL JAMIL I’M HAVING A STROKE

Which is wild because it is a) definitely not her name and b) not even her CHARACTER'S name!!

NBC

It's the name of Tahani's sister on The Good Place, who constantly overshadows Tahani.

It's kind of perfect if it's a deliberate joke.

WAS THIS A JOKE?! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!!!!! https://t.co/iR7wDdf3R0

E! credited Jameela Jamil as Kamilah Al-Jamil!!! A great joke!!!! E! made a joke! I couldn’t get a screenshot!
