Fashion legend and salty bitch Karl Lagerfeld died yesterday, and I think it may be the only time we ever see Anna Wintour shed a tear since she’s now the undisputed Queen B of fashion. Oh, wait. Choupette is still alive. Better luck next time, Anna. Most celebs did what celebs do best, and that’s to use a death to show off themselves rocking a certain lewk and casually mention how devastated they are in a mild tone-deaf caption – but not Jameela Jamil!
She used Karl’s death day to say she wouldn’t be wasting any minutes mourning someone who once called Adele fat and said Kim Kardashian only had herself to blame for her Parisian robbery. Cara Delevingne, a Chanel muse, then had to wade in and defend Kunty Karl.
Page Six says the “fun” began when Jameela first retweeted an article that basically asked why anyone was mourning someone who was kinda the OG bully of the fashion world:
I’m glad somebody said it. Even if it is a little soon. A ruthless, fat-phobic misogynist shouldn’t be posted all over the internet as a saint gone-too-soon. Talented for sure, but not the best person. https://t.co/RK3Q9HilpP

By Jameela’s fast-ass dancing on the bully’s grave standards, the Vogue interns should start popping a bottle of Veuve anytime Anna’s blood pressure gets a little low. She has a point: Michael K’s Kunty Karl word vomit was of epic proportions and even dragged the #metoo movement and Pippa Middleton (NEED I REMIND YOU HE CAME FOR ADELE?!). S we shouldn’t be stunned that Jameela might not want to hop aboard the mourning train, but Cara was having none of it. After using Choupette to dry her tears, she fired up Twitter and clapped back, per Just Jared, with a comment (that may have since been deleted):
“Seriously have some respect…You are calling him ruthless??? Are you kidding me? No one is perfect but you clearly don’t know the man so please keep your opinions to yourself and stop bashing people for attention.”
Jameela then replied, “I’ll stop being an attention whore when you do, bitch!” I’m only kidding. She’s an anti-bullying advocate, after all.
Cara later tweeted a revised statement that is basically everyone’s excuse for why their grandma says racist shit:
“He was born in 1933! I am not saying I agree with some of the things he has said. I’m very emotional and mourning his death and feel like I have to stick up for him when he’s not here to speak for himself.”
Cara then said people should have brought up their issues with Karl while he was alive and not the day after he croaked. Silly, Cara. Nobody had the balls to do that. If you muttered anything negative about Karl, he’d show up on your doorstep like Voldemort and spritz you in Chanel No. 5 – and that stank sauce takes month to come out of upholstery!
