“I simply said I found the show ‘surjury’ (not her) problematic for kids to watch. And that love island needed some more diversity. Both times Caroline instigated debate with ME even though I was not targeting or blaming her at all. I always just politely explained my point,” she wrote in her defense.

Piers Using a dead woman who I was friends with, as a weapon to try to create further harassment for me as I’ve JUST explained publicly that last week I felt suicidal… is why he is this industry’s most problematic . My criticizing a *show* did not aim any hate at Caroline,” she added.

This is far from the first time the two have sparred in the media. Find out why Jameela Jamil and Piers Morgan battled it out on social media a week before…

James Blake Defends Girlfriend Jameela Jamil Amid Munchausen Syndrome Allegations

James Blake is sticking up for his girlfriend, Jameela Jamil.

“It’s pretty disgusting to watch the woman I love just be dog piled on every day for such ridiculous things…she does this because she had such a difficult life. Because she doesn’t want others to feel alone, gaslit or ashamed the way she has,” he wrote.

“I am there for her swollen joints, her dislocations, her severe allergic reactions, her constant high fevers. I was there for her concussion, her 3 months of seizures, when the doctor gave her the cancer diagnosis, and for all her operations and their complications due to EDS [Ehlers-Danlos syndrome]. I can feel the lumps in her back from the car accident and see all the scars. I am there when she turns down amazing job opportunities because of her health limitations. I actually live with her. Her being attractive, tall, and successful doesn’t mean she hasn’t been sick.”

“You don’t know what her life is, and has been like. But I do, and I’m not gonna stand by and let some total strangers try to push my girlfriend over the edge,” he said. “… What are any of you even doing? And why are so many of you enjoying this? It’s sick to watch, and I don’t ever see men treated like this, the way we tear women from limb to limb,” he went on to say.

He also called out writer Tracie Morrissey for compiling clips showing apparent inconsistencies.

“Oh and FYI, the woman spreading these lies about my girlfriend has started a Patreon so that you have to pay her to hear them. Literally profiting off exploiting and gaslighting a young woman of colour with a chronic illness. Cool.”

Here’s how Jameela Jamil is responding to the allegations.

Jameela Jamil Fires Back at Piers Morgan's Diss Amid Munchausen Controversy

Jameela Jamil is firing back at Piers Morgan for his shaming-tweet aimed at her.

He tweeted a link to a tweet that read, “Jameela Jamil says her nut allergies have ‘cleared up’ after being blasted for snap of peanut butter snacks – as critics say she has Munchhausen syndrome.” Piers quote tweeted and wrote, “🤣🤣🤣 IT’S A MIRACLE! So happy for you @jameelajamil – hope your other 1,345 virtue signalling victimhood-craving ailments make similarly miraculous recoveries.”

Well, Jameela saw that tweet and responded, “There is no cure for you being a pointless, boring, misogynist prick sadly.”

If you don’t know, Jameela has been accused of having Munchausen syndrome, which causes people to fake health scares for attention. She responded to those claims and you can read her response right here.

Jameela Jamil Responds to Being Accused of Having Munchausen Syndrome

Jameela Jamil has no time for accusations.

The 33-year-old Good Place star reacted to viral social media posts claiming that she suffers from Munchausen syndrome, which causes people to fake health scares for attention.

Following her recent decision to come as queer amid backlash for hosting a vogueing show for HBO, critics began questioning her statements in past interviews about her past injuries, as well as anecdotes about allergies and other incidents that seemingly didn’t all add up.

“First I’m lying about my sexuality, now I’m now being accused of munchausens? By an unhinged idiot who didn’t even realize in all her ‘research’ that my car accident injury stories are ‘different’ because they were about TWO SEPARATE CAR ACCIDENTS 13 years apart? You can keep it,” she wrote.

“1/2 Being gaslit over your health for entertainment is a very specific pain and trauma that a lot of people with Ehlers Danlos/invisible disability have to face every day from people who don’t understand our vastly under-researched condition. And to what end? Who wins? If I was 2/2 Oil tycoon destroying the planet, or a serial sex offender I would maybe understand this vitriol and effort to target and harass me. But I’m just a mental health/eating disorder advocate actually taking the time to change public policy and legislation to protect kids. 🤷🏽‍♀️,” she continued.

“If the worst thing you’ve got on me is that I ran away from bees which I have a phobia of, twice in 34 years into the road, when bees and roads are everywhere, so that’s not really an extraordinary story… and my allergies/intolerances lessened as I grew older… then lol,” she later added.

Jameela Jamil Officially Comes Out as Queer After Backlash For Joining HBO Max's Vogueing Competition Show

Jameela Jamil has come out as queer after facing backlash of joining HBO Max’s vogueing competition series.

The Good Place actress took to social media to come out to fans and haters.

“Twitter is brutal. This is why I never officially came out as queer,” she wrote in a new post. “I added a rainbow to my name when I felt ready a few years ago, as it’s not easy within the south Asian community to be accepted, and I always answered honestly if ever straight-up asked about it on Twitter. But I kept it low because I was scared of the pain of being accused of performative bandwagon jumping, over something that caused me a lot of confusion, fear and turmoil when I was a kid.”

Jameela added, “I didn’t come from a family with *anyone* openly out. It’s also scary as an actor to openly admit your sexuality, especially when you’re a brown female in your thirties.”

“This is absolutely not how I wanted it to come out. I’m jumping off this hell app for a while because I don’t want to read mean comments dismissing this. You can keep your thoughts.”

She continued on, “I know that being queer doesn’t qualify me as ballroom. but I have privilege and power and a large following to bring to this show, (as does the absolutely iconic Megan Tee Stallion,) and it’s beautiful contestants and ballroom hosts. Sometimes it takes those with more power to help a show get off the ground so we can elevate marginalized stars that deserve the limelight and give them a chance.”

“I’m not the MC. I’m not the main host,” Jameela wrote. “I’m just a lead judge due to my 11 years of hosting experience, being fully impartial, a newcomer to ballroom (like much of the audience will be) and therefore a window in for people who are just discovering it now, and being a long time ally of the lgbtq community.”

Earlier in the week, fans came after Jameela after it was announced she joined the upcoming show as a judge.

Jameela Jamil Responds To Backlash Over Her Being a Judge on Vogueing Competition Show 'Legendary'

Jameela Jamil is defending herself after it was announced she would be a judge on HBO Max’s upcoming vogueing competition show, Legendary.

Fans became upset with the Good Place star after her role as a judge was announced for the show, which according to Variety, “turns modern day ball culture into a competition.”

The show will feature divas battling on teams called “Houses” in challenges involving fashion, dance and voguing. Each house is comprised of five performers and a leader. The 9-episode series features the teams facing off against one another for a trophy and cash prize. Each episode features a different themed ball and extensive footage of the competitors preparing behind the scenes.

“This seems sort of ironic in that @jameelajamil is apparently taking the place of an already underprivileged group in Hollywood,” one Twitter user wrote about the news.

Comic artist Adam Ellis also tagged Jameela on the network and asked why she took a job “on a panel that should be populated with queer and trans people?”

Jameela defended herself on her account, before deleting the tweet.

“I’m here as the ally/outsider to bring other outsiders in to celebrate this extraordinary world that deserves to be mainstream.❤️❤️❤️,” she explained.

She’ll join Megan Thee Stallion, Law Roach and Leiomy Maldonado on the judging panel on the show, with Dashaun Wesley and DJ MikeQ emceeing.

Jameela is also pictured below at the Be SELFish event hosted by Zumba Fitness held at Casita Hollywood on Tuesday (February 4) in Los Angeles.
