Jameela Jamil Was Body-Shamed at the Gym: ‘Oh what a shame, she could look so amazing’

On being body-shamed at the gym:

“I was just leaving the gym and a man I did not know approached me and asked me what I’d just been doing…. I told him I had 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 sees me around and thinks ‘oh 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.”

Jamil also speculated that behavior like this prevents people from going to the gym “because they’re afraid of being judged… I don’t like walking around thinking that people are looking at me and analyzing what I should or shouldn’t look like. I’m comfortable, I enjoy my body. I enjoy my curves. I’m also, by the way, a U.S. size 6 to 8, so if that’s how I’m being spoken to at the gym, you can imagine what people say to people who are larger than that.”

“To that man… don’t walk up to a woman ever again and say anything like that. I don’t need your advice. I don’t want your advice. I didn’t ask you for your advice as to whether or not you think i’m good looking enough. Just f—k off.”

… says 32 year-old Jameela.

Yeaaaah, I bet my flat arse that was nothing more than a personal trainer’s usual sales pitch.

The first pic btw is from 2013 when she said she was a size 12. Slimmer pics are more recent. Either way she looks great.

Makes sense…she didn’t look like a 6/8 in the first photo, especially given that she’s so tall.

She looks fabulous.
What an idiot he was, regardless of his motives. I wouldn’t be able to stay polite in her case.

Why would you start telling a random stranger about your anxiety and how cycling helps with it?

I find her very annoying, she always seems to be self righteously indignant about something. People can definitely be rude and make unsolicited comments about your appearance, but I find myself wondering if this incident actually occurred.
