Jameela Jamil attacks Tarantino for casting Emile Hirsch in his latest film
Hirsch was convicted of assault in 2015
CELEBRITY Jameela Jamil
Jamil took to Twitter to criticise what she called "white male privilege".
Cool. Emile Hirsch strangled my tiny female best friend until she blacked out at a party in front of dozens of witnesses at Sundance Film Festival (and was convicted) but Tarantino just cast him in a movie. INTENSE case of rich white male privelege eh? Cool. Cool. Cool. ???????? pic.twitter.com/FkZNmK5fda— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) June 8, 2018
Hirsch has been cast in Tarantino's upcoming film about the Manson family murders, titled 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.' After receiving conflicting responses via social media, Jamil has continued to put the director and actor on blast.
Check out her Tweets below:
Post Time’s Up, let’s stop calling the extreme abuse of women “mistakes.” Let’s look at the Black Lives Matter movement and see how the law is less lenient on people of colour. Let’s watch how we punish women in media just for toxic words, but male physical violence is a MISTAKE? pic.twitter.com/ixrVQdDtCq— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) June 9, 2018
Let’s cast actors who haven’t assaulted any women, and teach the next generation that assaulting women isn’t just a “mistake”, it’s a career ending decision. People should absolutely be able to find jobs after prison, just not in huge Hollywood films being paid so well— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) June 9, 2018
And treated like royalty. Let’s change our messaging and keep to the promises of the Time’s Up movement. To the actors in these films, don’t wear black to the awards ceremonies and wear your Time’s Up pins and then work alongside people who have abused women.— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) June 9, 2018
Especially those who have made no reparations towards the victims whose lives they have derailed. Forgiveness shouldn’t be given to those who do not make every effort to make amends to the person they hurt, not just the judge. That’s the last I have to say on the matter.

In 2015, Hirsch pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault against Daniele Bernfeld. The actor was sentenced to 15 days in prison, according to reports from the Associated Press.
Neither Hirsch nor Tarantino have responded to Jamil's social media statements.
