Jameela Jamil Slammed The Attendees and Spectating Public Of The 2023 Met Gala For Their “Selective Cancel Culture”
Jameela Jamil decried Vogue and The Met for choosing Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty as the Met Gala theme a few months ago, and though agreeing with the never-not-whining Jameela felt unnatural, she kind of did have a point. Karl was unapologetic over his thoughts about fat women, #metoo victims, gay adoption, and migrants any time he was on the record. He was a known kunt, and Jameela provided receipts in case anyone was unaware. And now that the 2023 Met has come and gone, Jameela still had a lot to say about those in attendance and the public’s tendency to have a selective memory and look the other way when pretty sparklies and elegant cat costumes come into play.
According to People, The Met’s custodians had barely grabbed their push brooms to start clearing the floor of the myriad of inevitably dropped costume pearls when Jameela pivoted from telling the tales of her teeth-breaking booty calls to calling out those who claim to be feminists, but put their beliefs aside to support an event that honored a confirmed misogynistic, bigoted asshole.
Just hours after the annual fundraising gala took place, The Good Place actress, 37, took to Instagram to voice her opinion about the event and the choice of Karl Lagerfeld as its honoree.
The body empowerment activist’s post comes after she first shared her disapproval of the event when organizers of the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute benefit announced its theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” in September.
Here’s what she had to say:
And she took aim at liberals sometimes moving the goalposts of cancel culture in her caption.
Speaking to her reasoning about publicly sharing her opinion about the event, she added in the post’s caption: “This isn’t about cancel culture. It’s not even about Karl. It’s about showing how selective cancel culture is within liberal politics, in the most blatant way so far. It’s about showing why people don’t trust liberals. Because of slippery tactics and double standards like this.”
She ended the caption by sharing that “the general public online participated and were entirely complicit in the erasure of the truth last night.”
Ok, maybe she can give herself a smooch on the ass for making a point again; but does this reprimand count for us plebes who just watch from our couches in our paint-stained basketball shorts and moth-eaten 23-year-old hoodies out of pure hatred? But, if next year’s theme is “Dolce & Gabbana: Catalog Semen and ‘China Ignorant Dirty Smelling Mafia,’” let’s all collectively agree to
