“Why are so many men upset?”: She-Hulk Star Jameela Jamil Makes Last Stand to Defend Stumbling Series, Claims ‘Spoof’ Show Has Highlighted Toxic Masculinity

Jameela Jamil: She Hulk

There have seldom been instances wherein a Marvel series becomes subject to criticism that extends beyond the label of “constructive.” But after the Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was released in August, the majority of its reviews seem to be based on its disapproval.

However, that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily the fault of either the production or the actors cast in the series. It looks like certain fans just aren’t getting along with the show; their perspectives don’t seem to be matching with the show’s overall plot. That, or it’s simply the toxic masculinity that’s getting in the way of them appreciating the show.

Marvel fans continue to criticize She-Hulk: Attorney at Law 

People seem to be having a whole lot of things to say against She-Hulk, and very less in the favor of it. From bad or no character development to unnecessary filler episodes, to no solid storyline and sub-par acting at best, fans have come up with a heap of insults to throw at the latest Disney+ series.

What’s worse is that the show is almost approaching the end of its first nine-episode season, and its audience still doesn’t seem to be all that impressed with it.

The plot revolves around Tatiana Maslany‘s character Jennifer Walters in her thirties, exploring life in all its different yet complicated aspects, whilst also trying to get through all the various ups and downs thrown her way. It’s a journey of She-Hulk who also happens to be an attorney, on the challenging but exciting quest of life.

But it looks like the story hasn’t touched many of the viewers as they continue to bring the show down with their censure. However, this time, one of the cast members decided to take a stand against these negative views.

Jameela Jamil speaks up against She-Hulk haters

She-Hulk co-star Jameela Jamil, who plays the role of Titania in the series, recently shared a video of her standing in NYC’s Times Square and eating Mcdonald’s french fries. She captioned the video saying, “waiting for the final episode of She-Hulk like.” 

But the comments she received were rather upsetting as men tried to troll her instead.

Jamil talked about how most of the people claiming to dislike She-Hulk happened to be men who can’t seem to break the cycle of toxic masculinity.

Replying to a particular tweet that taunted the star for her caption, asking who it is exactly that is waiting for the series’ new episode, the 36-year-old actress questioned, “lol…why are so many men upset? Are you all ok?” 

The Good Place star rightfully put haters in place by commenting, “some men are exhausting for women to deal with and have no accountability.”

Though the tweet in question has been now deleted, another tweet described her character in She-Hulk to be nothing but a joke in the latest episode. To that, the actress cast a very clever remark saying, “It’s a spoof. That’s the point. Do you still not understand that 7 episodes in?”

Even after people constantly tried to drag She-Hulk through the mud, Jameela Jamil is adamant about focusing on the good side of it all, wherein she’s “living her dream” and is more than happy with the way her life is going on.

The first season of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was released on Disney+, on August 18, 2022.
