Nobody owes you an explanation for an abortion they underwent. Jameela Jamil has always been open about her decision to get an abortion and has faced a lot of flak from trolls who shamed her for it. Now, in a simple Tweet, the actor has slammed the trolls shut who just could not keep their noses out of her business. She even posted a gif to go along with her statement and it's the most perfect thing ever, reports Daily Mail.

She then posted an update under her original tweet, saying that she did not expect to get so much love for what she said.

She wrote: "Didn’t expect to receive so much love for the tweet. And anyone who feels uncomfortable with the fact that I shouted out what my abortion allowed me personally to go on to achieve...I believe it’s important for brown girls to see brown girls win big and be unashamedly proud." More recently, she even tweeted: "I have loved this week’s discussion around abortion. To destigmatize, hyper-normalize and keep this conversation mainstream is the road to us unveiling the misogynists, and winning the fight for body autonomy.."
On December 3rd Jamil took to Twitter once again and wrote: "To the people trolling me and @GloriaSteinem because we said there is no democracy without a woman’s right to choose...I SAID WHAT I F**KING SAID and you’re clueless if you think I’m going to take it back. My life *is* more important to me than an unborn fetus’ one. Suck on that." She also gave an update: "You people are Pro birth. Not pro-life. There are plenty of starving, homeless babies currently. Over 100k currently seeking foster care. You care about fetuses, Once they’re out the womb, you don’t give a fuck. Help the kids who are alive first, then call yourself “pro-life”."
Recently, in an interview with People, Jamil revealed how she hit rock bottom at 30. “I was never set up through school or the people around me or magazines or anything to know how to protect myself, which is why at 30, I kind of lost all my money,” she tells PEOPLE. “Thirty was the rock bottom, was having no money.” Jamil, who is now 33, says the universe granted her a “second chance” when she booked The Good Place.
She also hopes she can guide others so that they don't make the same financial mistakes she did. “There’s a lot that I didn’t learn and that’s why I feel passionate about making sure no one else makes the same mistakes that I have,” she says. Apparently, Jamil was “incredibly poor,” but came into possession of cash when she was 22 years old after launching a career in show business. Still, she didn’t think to open a savings account and would get “absolutely demolished” each year at tax time, as she didn’t understand how to properly file her taxes.
“There’s no good reason that someone who isn’t completely stupid, like myself, was able to make so many stupid mistakes, other than the fact that the information just isn’t readily available to me,” she says. “It also feels so intimidating, the whole financial aspect of life. You just don’t even know where to start. It sounds so complicated.” She then added that she continued to drain her bank account by overspending in the name of being a good friend and as a means of temporarily helping ease her depression and anxiety.
