Ugh, even Jameela Jamil has to go to great lengths to fend off unwanted advancements from men

Any woman who has ever existed in a public place knows that unwanted advancements from pushy, rude men who can’t take no for an answer are just a regular part of life (even if they shouldn’t be). It turns out that even celebrities aren’t immune to this kind of crap. Jameela Jamil, who you might know from a little NBC hit series called The Good Place, recently shared a story about trying to reject a man who did not handle it well. She tweeted about the unsettling experience, and women from all over the world chimed in to share their own stories, showing just how common an issue this is for women.

“Was out at the shops with my friend. Man ogles me. Man then approaches me to give me his number,” Jamil recalled in her tweet. “I explain I have a boyfriend but thank him for the offer. Man then threatens my career, saying I better remember that I rejected him. And then Shouts at me that I’m low class.”
