Jameela Jamil Comes Out As ‘Queer’ In Response to Criticism Over New Show
Did you know ballroom dancing is gay? I personally had no idea, though if you asked me to guess I probably would have hit the mark on that one. But apparently it’s not only gay but it is in fact so gay that Jameela Jamil decided she needed to come out as ‘queer’ to defend being on a show about ballroom dancing called Legendary.
Jamil made a tweet about it and it is exactly as dumb as you’re probably thinking.

Jamil says, among other things, “I know that my being queer doesn’t qualify me as ballroom,” which… what?
Here’s the thing about Jameela Jamil, which you may not know if you’re only familiar with her from The Good Place; she’s dumb as shit. I’m basing this on the time I saw her on The Great Comic Relief Bake-Off and she came off as being incompetent and, well, dumb as shit.
Heres an example of her big dumbass energy, watch as she tells Seth Meyers how she tried to curl her hair with a vibrator.
Her height has a done a huge amount of heavy lifting in getting her a career as a presenter.
Setting aside that ‘queer’ could mean virtually anything, I don’t see how it’s helpful to say “no, see, I can totally watch ballroom dancing, I’m queer!” You obviously don’t have to be gay to be a ballroom dancer, much less a ballroom dancing reality show judge.
