It’s like the last month has just been about Jameela Jamil screaming into the internet void.
@freeblackgirl, blasting Jameela Jamil for asserting that airbrushing should be banned. In comments to the BBC, the actress described the technique as “anti-feminist” and “fat-phobic.” Not everyone was on board with the idea; the above Twitter user compared Jamil’s take to Alicia Keys’ makeup-free campaign and noted that many celebs forget that their looks aren’t the norm.
What would’ve been more shocking: Beyonce in a T-shirt or Ed Sheeran in a tux?
@mattebitch, defending Ed Sheeran for his no-frills T-shirt and jeans look at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival. Twitter users began blasting the British singer after his duet with Beyonce on “Perfect,” for which Beyonce wore an over-the-top fuchsia gown. While some said it was an example of the differing fashion standards for male and female performers, others, such as @OliviaAundreaC, noted that the singers’ fashion choices reflected their different brands.
No one approved this.
@JoelleMonique, reacting to a story from GQ claiming boot-cut jeans were making a comeback. GQ was panned for the call, which was based on Balenciaga’s inclusion of a flared-out jean in its spring collection. Many Twitter users decried the idea that the once-popular denim style could return; @MikeDelMoro took a line from Ariana Grande, writing simply, “thank u, next.”
Didn’t “Nathan For You” end last year?
@wheelswordsmith, tweeting about an article shared by Amazon News about one of the company’s delivery drivers, who lost weight in part by making her package drop-offs more physically taxing. Amazon News was critiqued for the wording of the tweet, which said its Amazon Flex program “allowed” the driver to lose the weight, and for promoting a tactic that was showcased on the parody show “Nathan for You.”
