APA war of words has ignited between Jameela Jamil of “The Good Place” and Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio.The two began clashing about the fashion industry on Twitter Tuesday, with Jamil slamming its treatment of women while Sampaio defended her fellow models.It all began when Jamil retweeted a video of women smiling and dancing on a catwalk Saturday.”Oh my god,” she wrote, “this looks like the most fun, and not a long-starved terrified teenager in sight. Beautiful.”On Tuesday, Sampaio jumped in, taking issue with Jamil’s characterization of models.”How about celebrating someone without bringing other people down?” she tweeted. “Calling runway models ‘long-starved terrified teenager’ is extremely offensive. From someone that is always preaching for body positivity this just screams hypocrisy.”How about celebrating someone without bringing other people down?

Eating disorders, drugs and cocaine use aren’t a exclusive problem of models, it’s a huge problem is society as a whole.

While Jamil argued her comment was directed at the fashion industry in general, Sampaio accused her of bringing down some women in order to raise up others.Sara, respectfully, I don’t think this is the hill to die on. This industry is unlike other industries in that it makes professionals out of children, and informs culture and society, and is a standard set for young people everywhere. Fashion is a dangerous industry for too many. https://t.co/h0muUpRMtL— Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) October 16, 2019As the conversation ran its course, Sampaio said it didn’t seem like they were on the same page.”With all due respect right now it just feels like I’m talking about apples and your talking about pears!” she wrote. “I think I’ve been very clear in what I meant.”More: Jameela Jamil, Piers Morgan Twitter feud reignited over Duchess Meghan’s Vogue issueMore: Valentina Sampaio announces she will be Victoria’s Secret’s first openly transgender modelHow is saying to not deminish other people to celebrate others negative for girls? Cause that was the point of my tweet! Period! I never said there wasn’t a problem with the industry, so don’t go around and put words in my mouth! Be better than that!— Sara Sampaio (@SaraSampaio) October 16, 2019A few more heated tweets later, their beef seemed to have died down.But Jamil continued the argument Wednesday, posting a link to a news article about their spat.Jamil said it was “ridiculous” their fight made headlines and tagged Sampaio in a tweet where she accused the model of missing her point. Rather than “taking aim at kids,” Jamil said her target was “this (unbelievably (expletive)) industry.”More: Victoria’s Secret just got its first plus-sized model: ‘It felt surreal’After a few more heated back-and-forths, Sampaio said she was done responding.”This is the last I’ll say on this,” she wrote. “Your constant condescending tone is just unnecessary, and makes it impossible to actual have a conversation. Hope you have a nice life. Wish you all the best.”This is the last I’ll say on this. Your constant condescending tone is just unnecessary, and makes it impossible to actual have a conversation.
