Jameela Jamil Calls Out The Met Gala For ‘Selective Cancel Culture’

Jameela Jamil is slamming the 2023 Met Gala for its theme which honored the late designer, Karl Lagerfeld.

The Good Place actress, 37, took to her Instagram on Tuesday, May 2 to address the “selective cancel culture” that played a part in Monday night’s annual fundraising gala.

“Last night Hollywood and fashion said the quiet part out loud when a lot of famous feminists chose to celebrate at the highest level, a man who was so publicly cruel to women, to fat people, to immigrants and to sexual assault survivors,” the actress noted. “And all the women’s publications, and spectators online, chose to gleefully ignore it.”

Jamil continued: “Suddenly your appetite to find someone’s tweets from when they were 12, has gone. Nobody has perfect morals, least of all me, but Jesus Christ we had a year to course correct here, and not award the highest honor possible to a known bigot.”

“And everyone just decided all of a sudden, we can separate the art from the artist when *convenient*,” she concluded. “And it’s one rule for us and another rule for everybody else. Last night we relinquished our right to be taken at all seriously about anything important.”

Jamil took to the caption of her post to explain why she decided to share her thoughts on this year’s Met Gala, and called out how people tend to make cancel culture so “selective.”

“This isn’t about cancel culture. It’s not even about Karl,” she explained. “It’s about showing how selective cancel culture is within liberal politics, in the most blatant way so far. It’s about showing why people don’t trust liberals. Because of slippery tactics and double standards like this.”
