Jameela Jamil, best known as the presenter of Channel 4's 'T4' and star of Greg Daniels' 'The Good Place,' has written a piece for BBC News. She targets the use of airbrushing, saying it's "a disgusting tool."

Jameela Jamil has been making headlines recently. She's been very fed up of the pressure that women have to go through in their day-to-day lives; from trying to look a certain way, or being told that they should look a certain way.

Jamil recently took aim at rappers such as Cardi B and Iggy Azalea who endorse products that claim to make women slim, such as detox teas. She tweeted pictures of the celebrities, saying "Give us the discount codes to your nutritionists, personal chefs, personal trainers, airbrushers and plastic surgeons you bloody liars."


Jamil also re-enacted quite a hilarious video of the real-life stress that she thinks drinking these teas puts on your body.

In all seriousness though, Jamil has said that she's struggled for years with weight issues. She said she "starved herself for years" and "spent all her money on these miracle cures and laxatives." The result of taking them is that she now has "metabolism problems for life."


In her new article for the BBC entitled 'Viewpoint: Jameela Jamil on why airbrushing should be illegal' the actor doesn't hold back on the pressure of the celebrity industry.

She gives her reasons as to why she believes airbrushing should be illegal, highlighting points such how the picture-modifying tool can impact women's mental health. She also tweeted covers from magazines, noting the differences between a male photoshoot compared to a female's. She says "Men can celebrate the inevitable, we must fear it."

Jamil ends the article by saying "It is anti-feminist. It is ageist. It is fat-phobic. It looks weird. It looks wrong.

"Don't give your money to any institution that sells you the lie of 'perfection'. They are trying to break you, so you will hate yourself and go out and buy something you don't need, in order to fix something that was never broken in the first place."
