Jameela Jamil Defends Kim Kardashian Amid Met Gala Corset Backlash

Lyndon Abioye |

Jameela Jamil hopped online to defend Kim Kardashian on Tuesday after the reality star received backlash for her corseted gown to Monday’s 2024 Met Gala.

Kim wore a silver Maison Margiela Couture waist-cinching corset, and in the videos circulating online, Kim looked as though she was struggling to breathe at times. 

Jamil reshared a Grazia UK article titled, “Why are we letting Kim Kardashian set our beauty standards for us?”

 “The question is are *we* letting her set beauty standards? I’ve been saying this for years. She is the symptom. The media is the cause. It’s not her fault she gets centered. No individual can be responsible for a beauty standard. They center her and then blame her. The media is the main culprit here,” Jamil wrote in response.

“At this point it’s getting ridiculous,” Jamil continued in the caption. “I’m all for holding celebrities accountable if they SELL dangerous products to people. But I Woke up to thousands (literally) of messages from people asking me to have a go at Kim over a corset she wore,” she continued. “A corset that nobody is holding the brand, or the designer at all accountable for, who had an entire runway show of insane corsets that people can hardly breathe in. Or her stylist.”

Kim has not yet spoken out about the backlash.
