Sara Sampaio Calls Out Jameela Jamil for Perpetuating a Stereotype About Models

Victoria’s Secret angel Sara Sampaio is calling out The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil for a comment that she made about models.

Jameela retweeted a video from the Colors of Africa fashion show, in which women did a Nigerian dance while walking down the runway. She wrote, “Oh my god 😍😍😍 this looks like the most fun, and not a long-starved terrified teenager in sight. Beautiful.”

Sara felt that Jameela was perpetuating a stereotype about models, in which people assume that all of them starve themselves. She pointed out that it’s possible to celebrate “someone without bringing other people down.”

Jameela then responded saying “there is a *vast* majority issue with young girls starving themselves, and using drugs and cocaine to control their weight, to meet the very small sample sizes.”
