Jameela Jamil wishes her followers would stop pestering her about Kim Kardashian's body image issues.

Jameela urged fans to stop encouraging her to "scream" at Kim Kardashian, and simply unfollow the buxom reality star if they don't like her tiny waist posts.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star hit headlines earlier this week when she shared a snap of herself showing off her impossibly tiny waist in a corset.
 

Many fans contacted "The Good Place" actress Jameela, who has gained something of a reputation for speaking out on social media posts with damaging body image content.

Fans begged Jameela to weigh in on the situation, but the 34-year-old actress instead told her followers that they have the power to make their own decisions about posts like Kim's.

"I've received over 1000 DMs asking me to address this," Jameela wrote on Instagram.

"Kim, like many of us, has had decades of body image issues and obsession. This has been HEAVILY perpetuated by how much the media scrutinised [sic] her and her sisters over their appearances. She isn't actively trying to harm you. She’s just so harmed and deluded into thinking this is what SHE needs to look like to be special and beautiful and she's spilling it out onto her following. Is this wrong? YES. But I'm not sure she realizes that she's doing to others what her idols did to her, in making her think a tiny waist is the key to femininity and sex appeal."

Jameela said she's happy that her fans are aware that Kim has serious body image disturbance issues. "...it shows my work is done," Jameela said.

Concluding her post, Jameela stated:

"So there's no point in screaming at her. The smart thing to do is to protect YOURSELF. YOU have the power. YOU control every Market. YOU choose what and who is trendy. Unfollow the people who tell you things that hurt your self esteem. Don't let the debris of their damage spill out onto you. Unfollow people/brands that don't make you feel powerful and happy and grateful for what you have. You're the boss and none of them are s**t without you."

It's not the first time Jameela took aim at Kim and her equally damaged sisters. She previously slammed Kim's younger sibling Khloe for promoting diet supplements on her social media pages.
