The Good Place actress makes it clear that words can really be hurtful weapons. After Piers Morgan’s shocking departure from Good Morning Britain, Jameela Jamil opened up about how his previous comments about her affected her mental health.
Jameela took to her platform on Twitter earlier today to describe how Morgan’s words about her personally affected her to the point of even thinking of suicide!

She began her letter with a trigger warning her followers, “TW: suicide,” before going on to say that “I nearly killed myself a year ago because of Piers Morgan’s campaign of lies and hatred against me. I am happy to be alive for many reasons. But just watching him leave GMB today is up there … And got a feeling. “
That last sentence was completed by a gif of the actress looking gorgeous at the 2019 Emmys red carpet event.
A day before her tweet, Piers came under fire for his divisive comments about Meghan Markle following her Oprah interview.

Meghan heartbreakingly opened up about dealing with suicidal thoughts in the palace and not getting any help despite asking for it.
However, Piers put down her mental health battle, saying, “I don’t believe a word of what she’s saying, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe her, even if she read me a weather report. ‘
As you can imagine, the backlash came quickly, so the next day he responded to his earlier comments.
“When we talked about this yesterday, I said, as an all-encompassing thing,” I don’t believe what Meghan Markle is saying in general in this interview. “And I am still very concerned about the veracity of much of what she said.” But for the record let me say my position on mental illness and suicide. Mental illness and suicide – these are extremely serious things. They should be taken very seriously. And if someone feels that way, they should get the treatment and help they need every time. ‘
That was not enough and so it was soon announced that Piers would be leaving the morning show.
