Jameela Jamil is engaged in a war of words on Twitter regarding the body representation seen in this year’s Love Island line up.

The actress and online activist previously targeted the show producers earlier this week for only having one curvy contestant.

“”The producers of Love Island think this slim woman counts as their new token “plus size” contestant? Are they drunk?” she tweeted.

Caroline Flack, the host of the show, responded to Jameela, telling The UK Sun: “I wonder if she’s actually watched it, because it isn’t about what you see on face value.”

Jameela has continued the debate, today tweeting:

“Sorry Caroline, the show could stand to have some more diversity.”

“It’s hard for slim, white, straight people to relate to this sometimes. I understand that. You can’t begin to understand erasure because you’re constantly represented.”

“The show would be even better with diversity.”
