Jameela Jamil refutes ‘conspiracy theories’ in first tweets since coming out as queer
However, Jameela Jamil is addressing her critics head-on.
The popular actress returned to Twitter on Wednesday for the first time since coming out as queer and quitting the social media site last week.
The “Good Place” actress and activist tweeted about her frustration after online critics accused her of having factitious disorder, formerly known as Munchausen syndrome, citing what some believed to be inconsistencies in Jamil’s previous interviews about her health.
“First I’m lying about my sexuality, now I’m now being accused of munchausens? By an unhinged idiot who didn’t even realize in all her “research” that my car accident injury stories are “different” because they were about TWO SEPARATE CAR ACCIDENTS 13 years apart? You can keep it,” Jamil tweeted.
Factitious disorder imposed on self is a type of mental illness in which a person repeatedly acts as if he or she has a physical or mental disorder when, in truth, he or she has caused the symptoms, according to Cleveland Clinic.
