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.

Kumail Nanjiani Feels 'Hopeless & Helpless' in Quarantine for 8 Months

Kumail Nanjiani is getting candid about his mental health.

The 42-year-old The Eternals actor opened up in a series on tweets on Sunday (October 25) amid the pandemic.

“We’ve been in quarantine for 8 months because my wife is in a high risk group. We feel let down by our country. But it’s not about us. We’re the lucky ones. Over 226,000 people have died. That’s so many families destroyed. People have lost their homes, their jobs,” he wrote.

“And this was all preventable. I look at the Covid cases & deaths in other countries & it feels like they’re in another world. Are they dealing with the same disease we are? I guess that’s the difference. They’re dealing with it. We’re not. We politicized every suppression effort. Wearing masks is a sign of weakness. Protecting your friends, family, neighbors is a sign of weakness. Getting your heart broken every day by rising cases is a sign of weakness. Worrying that the next text will contain unthinkable news is a sign of weakness. Sleepless nights because what will happen if the person laying next to you in bed gets sick is a sign of weakness. Science is a sign of weakness. We could have done so much more to prevent all these losses. But it’s not his fault. It’s China’s fault. 8 months& we’re still here,” he continued.

“I feel like I work Fealy [sp] hard to keep all these doors closed in my mind, to try and keep all these scary/sad/devastating thoughts out of my head. Focus on the positive. Donate to worthy causes. People are doing fantastic work out there. Most days it works. But not today. I guess I have nothing constructive to say. Just be careful out there. I’m afraid we have a couple of bad months ahead of us. And I feel hopeless & helpless today. Actually, pls respond with worthy organizations we can donate to. I’m gonna try & crawl back to optimism now.”

Kumail and his wife Emily V. Gordon released a podcast about their experience earlier in the year.

Many celebrities have spoken out about their positive coronavirus diagnosis.
