Jameela Jamil Just Laid Into Piers Morgan After He Criticized Her Inclusion In Meghan Markle’s New Vogue ‘Heroines’ Issue

The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil ripped controversial journalist Piers Morgan a new one after he bashed her for previous attacks on women.

On Monday, Morgan wrote a scathing op-ed for the Daily Mail criticizing then-pregnant Meghan Markle’s list of 15 trailblazers featured in September’s issue of British Vogue.

The issue’s theme was “Forces for Change.”

“Meghan Markle is many things,” he wrote of the guest editor:

“But ‘the country’s most influential beacon of change’ she is most definitely not.”

Among the powerful women Markle listed as advocates for body positivity, female empowerment and climate change was Jamil, a choice which Morgan scoffed at and spewed forth the following venomous diatribe.

“Jameela Jamil, the DJ and actress turned ‘body positive activist’ is a foul-mouthed little charmer.”

He continued to mention he was once a victim of her verbal assault.

“She recently branded me a ‘s**t stain’ and ‘a giant pile of w**k’ on Twitter after I questioned Sam Smith’s bizarre announcement that he is now identifying as non-binary soon after coming out as gay.”

But he digressed and said his beef with her was less about him than with her contradictory views on other women.

Ms Jamil used to be, by her own admission, a ‘slut-shamey, judgmental’ columnist for Company magazine who repeatedly attacked other women for their behaviour.”

“She said she hoped Cardi B and Iggy Azalea ‘s**t their pants in public’, accused Miley Cyrus of being ‘a vagina without a platform’, compared Beyonce to a ‘stripper’, labelled the Kardashians ‘double agents for the Patriarchy’ who ‘line their pockets with the blood and diarrhoea of teenage girls’ and attacked Rihanna for ‘flaunting of a relationship with a man who the entire world knows beat her senseless, her incessant promotion of marijuana, and daring stage antics…. ‘”

In response to Morgan’s list portraying her as the antithesis to “equality, kindness, and open-mindedness,” Jamil admitted her past transgressions referring to her pinned tweet.

“My PINNED tweet is all of the mistakes I made, owning up to being problematic when I was young.”

“I have nothing to hide. You are old, and still a problematic slut-shaming, fat-shaming, misogynist, irrelevant s**t stain, smeared across our country.”

Her pinned tweet from December 2018 read:

“It is never too late to check yourself and right your wrongs.”

“I used to be slut shamey, judgmental and my feminism wasn’t intersectional enough. Nobody is born perfectly ‘woke.’ Listen, read, learn, grow, change and make room for everyone.”

“We aren’t free til ALL of us are free.”

While Jamil expressed her regrets and made amends, she remained unwavering in her opinion of Morgan.

“He is just the thirstiest b***h alive.”

She is not alone in her view of the reviled journalist. Many called out Morgan for being obsessed with online relevance.

Morgan came back at Jamil by retweeting her response to reiterate his earlier example of the Duchess’s Vogue list.

But Twitter wasn’t having him.

Others who have been guilty of Jamil’s same judgment lapse appreciated her transparency and her learning from past mistakes.

Words we can all live by.

The September issue’s Vogue cover feature included actresses and activists Greta Thunberg, Salma Hayek, Yara Shahidi, Laverne Cox and Gemma Chan.

The Duchess was proud of the work she contributed as a guest editor.

“I hope you’ll feel the strength of the collective in the diverse selection of women chosen for the cover as well as the team of support I called upon within the issue to help bring this to light.”

“I hope readers feel as inspired as I do by the ‘Forces for Change’ they’ll find within these pages.”

Morgan remained less impressed and continued bashing Markle in his Daily Mail op-ed, claiming she was forcing her “radical liberal opinions upon us, she’s playing a very ill-advised game that I can guarantee will end in tears.”

The embittered Good Morning Britain co-anchor also bemoaned the omission of male role models from Markle’s list of influential people, and that only five of the women she named were British.

Wrote Morgan:

“The message is pretty clear: promoting Brand Meghan to America is more important to her than promoting Brand Britain.”

Oh, Piers.

You really are thirsty.
