Jameela and Josie backing away

I’ve checked as much as I can and apparently Jameela Jamil and Josie Long (I’m not sure who she is but lots of followers) have deleted their tweets supporting Mermaids. Jameela also seems to have removed her unpleasant tweet(s) to JK Roeling (I don’t think I’ve missed them on the searches) An interesting development.

Ooooh... interesting

I think she is comedian? Not sure. Interesting about them deleting tweets quietly. I wonder how soon TRAs are going to notice?

StillNotAGirl Mon 10-Aug-20 21:13:24

Very interesting, wonder what rumours they've heard grin

SheWhoMustNotBeHeard Mon 10-Aug-20 21:16:19

Actually, I'm waiting for Emma Watson to back pedal because she has been so vocal about supporting them. I'll celebrate when that happens.

SheWhoMustNotBeHeard Mon 10-Aug-20 21:17:09

I realise I might have to wait a long time. 😁

Jameela tweeted this back in June. I screenshot it because it felt so nasty and I text it to my partner to discuss with him.

I'll be interested if she does a full 180, but I also probably won't see it because I unfollowed after this.

Sorry, that was Insta, not Twitter

Some of Jameela’s tweets were really quite vicious but fairly fact free.

Very interesting and heartening!

Maybe on legal advice

Jameela is grim. It feels as if she is still one of the mean girls at her very posh London private school (Queens college).

But interesting. The BBC have backed away a little from Mermaids. Now these two. People who survive on their wits (in the absence of talent) can be savvy. Perhaps they have decided that Susie Green and Helen mimmymum are no longer cool. (Half right...they were never cool, but it suited some people to pretend they were.)

Will look forward to Emma Watson reverse ferreting over this. And all the other usual suspects.

adulthumanwoman Mon 10-Aug-20 21:44:43

She's a bully who will side with whichever group she thinks will earn her the most

Jameela has also deleted her Tweets where she said that "Danielle Muscato" is her friend.

Maybe related, maybe because Danielle was involved in a bit of Twitter controversy and has been dogpiled by thousands of people and called a Karen for bullying a retail worker today.

I'm just going to save Jameela's endorsement of Danielle here.

And here's a handy list of celebrities who've endorsed Mermaids, including Jameela. I hope at some point they will have to answer for it.

Maybe we need to start letting people know they'll eventually be held to account for endorsing Stonewall and Mermaids.

I know it's important to always give people a way back etc etc etc.

But by God if Jamil does a reverse ferret I am REALLY going to struggle.

She's managed to combine vapidity with viciousness as few others have.

CourtneyLurve Mon 10-Aug-20 22:10:13

@Kantastic That endorsement is like something Titana Mcgrath would post. I can't believe anyone would read it and agree.

PearPickingPorky Mon 10-Aug-20 22:13:31

This is very interesting indeed.

Would vacuous celebs like Jamil get some sort of prior warning about Mermaids' impending doom? How does this sort of thing happen?

rogdmum Mon 10-Aug-20 22:16:34

Kantasic Glinner’s comment below her tweet! grin grin grin

Great work there, Kantastic

I won't forget those who sold out women and children for clout, and it's good to have the evidence.

Jameela and Josie have both been absolutely hideous: gleefully calling orher women terfs and bigots. Not sure if I can forgive them or others like them, but we'll see.

ScrimpshawTheSecond Mon 10-Aug-20 22:20:52

Holding different opinions, believing something and then changing your mind is human and totally fine.

But that doesn't extend to making rapey comments, deliberately attacking women and smearing dv survivors. There are lines and limits, and Jamil's behaviour has gone well over it, in my view.

It's a bit like the difference between Baroness Winterson voting against same-sex marriage - a belief that I disagree with, but she's entitled to hold - and Damian Barr making his disgustingly callous comments about a trans person's suicide attempt.

Because for all the 'be kind' shit, there are so many people who have been apparently using 'gender issues as a way of heaping horrible, horrible abuse on women.

Funnily enough I was looking for Jameela's 'I take them all' tweets about Karen White and Co a couple of weeks ago, and noticed she had deleted them....

Wrong side of history eh Jameela? grin

Interesting. Potential inkling that she knows fine well she's talking bollocks?
