The conversation started as Kumail posted a photo looking muscular while eating cake on social media.

“The Kumail Nanjiani thing makes me very sad. Our culture has created a system where people attempt to conform to impossible beauty standards to a point where it starts to render them unrecognizable, and then we mock and shame them. Men are not exempt from this,” a popular tweet reads. which promoted an even more viral response.

“Hey Twitter friends! Here’s an ex of what we’re going to try NOT to do in 2021: Kumail Nanjiani has been minding his business, openly sharing how he & his wife have been isolating because of her medical condition & that he’s been working out a lot at home to prep for a film,” the thread begins.

“So, all the Marvel Chris‘ get jacked as f–k for their roles and folks are all ‘Damn, wow! So impressive.” Kumail does it for the exact same reason and everyone decides to mock him. I wonder what makes him different? (Hint, I don’t wonder. You racists asses),” noted another.

Kumail Nanjiani is trending because people are mad he’s…exercising? Alrighty then,” another person weighed in.

“After Chadwick Boseman’s death there was a lot of talk about ‘never make fun of people’s bodies, you don’t know what anyone’s going through’ but Kumail Nanjiani posts like. an average picture of himself eating dinner and that’s our the window I guess,” said another user.

Chris Pratt can bulk up for a marvel movie and everyone is cool with is. Kumail Nanjiani does it and people call him ‘grotesque’ and assume he’s using steroids. I hate it here,” added another.

Here’s what he himself had to say about his body transformation.
