Jamil recounted, per TooFab:
I remember you going through that, and then very shortly afterwards, I gained a lot of weight back in England. I was a radio DJ, by the way. You couldn't even see me! People just wanted to know I was thin over the airwaves. So I got nationally fat-shamed for like six months in my own country, and it was your response to yours that gave me the strength to get through mine.
Clarkson shut down a body-shamer in 2017 in epic fashion. Recalling the exchange, Clarkson joked:
Did I use a word that I can't say on this show?
Jamil responded affirmatively and both enjoyed a good chuckle. Jamil's activism has been much-discussed online in recent years. Watch Kelly and Jameela share their stories below.
