Ellen DeGeneres is receiving a ton of backlash for her comments about being friends with former President George W. Bush, and The Good Place's Jameela Jamil is showing her support over the way Ellen handled her response: https://t.co/XX7XHWimEW— JustJared.com (@JustJared) October 8, 2019
Famous activist Jameela Jamil recently took to her twitter to commend Ellen's defense of hanging out with George W. Bush. She said Ellen was making "an incredibly necessary point in our society".
In a now-deleted tweet she complained about not being able to have a debate about these sort of topics on twitter because people (who presumably were bringing up Bush's war crimes) were getting "too extreme".
A few hours later, 33 year old Jameela announced that she had just received some new information about Bush and she now understands why people dislike him.
Ooooof learning today about the full extent of Bush’s heinous presidency... we weren’t taught much about him at school, we just heard he was stupid...(we were dealing with our own epic nightmare of a prime minister back then). What a monstrous leader. I now understand the rage..— Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) October 9, 2019
