Jameela Jamil attends the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on January 26, 2020 in Los Angeles, California. Kim Kardashian attends the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on February 09, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California.

Jameela Jamil is calling out Kim Kardashian for comments she made about work ethic in a new feature for Variety. Kim, 41, told the publication, “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f—ing a– up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”

Sharing a screenshot of Variety‘s story on Twitter along with her response, “I think if you grew up in Beverly Hills with super successful parents in what was simply a smaller mansion… nobody needs to hear your thoughts on success/work ethic. This same 24 hours in the day s— is a nightmare. 99.9% of the world grew up with a VERY different 24 hours.”


Jameela posted this on her Instagram, going off on Kim’s privileged advantages, writing, “Not the day after IWD… They are a super impressive family of businesswomen and are products of a ridiculously good start and a genius manager in their mother as well as their own hard work and personal sacrifices. Plus a LOT of photoshop and a decision to not care about misleading people about their beauty claims whilst never disclosing how much secret work goes into their appearances… that they make most of their money from. And a huge amount of money made from questionable diet/detox products and corsets.”

The Good Place actress added, “They shouldn’t be asked about their secret to success. They shouldn’t answer those questions. It’s all obvious to everyone, and I hope nobody holds themselves to the standards of people who were raised by millionaires. Just take the money, use it for good and chill the f— out when lecturing others about grind and hustle. And learn how to brag without putting others down who have less.”

Jamil had more to say, adding to her Instagram Stories, “I wish more celebrities could learn how to appreciate their own work or brag even, without s—ting on those who have and were born with less. It’s grim…”

In her Variety feature, Kim said of her characterization of someone that is just famous for being famous, “Who gives a f—. We focus on the positive. We work our a–es off. If that’s what you think, then sorry. We just don’t have the energy for that. We don’t have to sing or dance or act; we get to live our lives — and hey, we made it. I don’t know what to tell you.”
