Jameela Jamil is on the receiving end of huge backlash for how she responded to a fan complimenting her skin...
Jameela Jamil is once again in the firing line.
The backlash has been intense, to say the least...
Who hasn't heard of Jameela Jamil?
via: Getty ImagesWell, if you haven't, you've probably heard her on Twitter!
Jameela is a British TV presenter and personality...
via: Getty ImagesAnd the thirty-four-year-old has worked very hard to get to where she is today.
She was brought up in London...
Jameela was bullied severely throughout her school years...HuffPost. "Like beaten senseless by kids for being from a Pakistani family and for being poor. That was before the age of 10, and that went on until I was about sixteen."
She was also diagnosed with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
The car accident helped her develop a better relationship with her body...

Jameela used her personal traumas to empower others...slammed the Kardashian family in the past for promoting unhealthy dietary supplements.
She also campaigns with the battle against racism.
via: Getty ImagesJameela has been subjected to racism all of her life, with her explaining, "I've experienced racism out in the streets wherever I am." "I have experienced racism online from trolling. I just recently, in 2018, did this interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy for Channel 4 and it was a widely circulated interview, and we got messages like, 'That room must have been stinking with those P**** in the room.' Those are the kinds of messages I receive on a daily basis."
But Jameela is a prime example of rising through the hate...
via: Getty ImagesAnd she now has a very successful career on British television as a presenter, DJ, and host.
She's also very opinionated...And she isn't afraid of letting others know exactly how she feels.
She has been in her fair share of heated online arguments...
And Jameela regularly stands up to potty-mouthed journalist Piers Morgan in furious debates.

But she's often criticized for taking things "too far."
On Sunday night, the star posted a makeup-free selfie to her Instagram.
After seeing this comment...Jameela decided to write a response, but what she had to say really didn't go down well with people.
