British actor and activist Jameela Jamil has asked people to stop "egging on" Kanye West amidst his social media feud with estranged wife Kim Kardashian. "West has faced criticism for repeatedly stating his desire to reconcile with Kardashian, sharing screenshots of messages he had sent to Kardashian, and posting derogatory messages about the comedian Pete Davidson, whom Kardashian is currently dating. Jamil implored her followers to stop "enjoying and encouraging" the public behavior from West, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2018," reports Independent.

Jamil captioned the Instagram post, "Whatever you may think of either parent. Think of the innocent kids. This is not me in ANY WAY defending or excusing Kanye. But I do know enough about mental illness to know that the public/media is handling this in a way that only leads to more sadness/danger for everyone involved. A woman is afraid. Children are traumatized. And Kanye is making catastrophic decisions. Just stop treating it like it's Real Housewives. [heart emoji]"

The post read, "We are watching a mentally ill man coaxed over the edge by our engagement/media attention. The consequences of this getting worse/messier will be him losing access to his kids. Learn something from how we fed into Britney's mental health strains and stop enjoying and encouraging this. This isn't entertainment. I know he's asking for the attention, but getting it will create unimaginable sadness for him and mostly his completely innocent kids later. Stop meme-ing this. Even famous people, when clearly going through something with their mental health, should be off-limits when it comes to internet lols. I know he's not in the right. But I also know pouring gasoline on this fire when someone is bipolar isn't going to make anything easier for anyone involved. This s**t must be really hard for all of them. Especially Kim. And egging him on won't help her or her babies. It's not funny, it's real life."

Chef and food writer Gizzi Erskine said, "Totally agree. Feel exactly the same about Britney. The whole things horrible to watch." A user commented, "Thank you for posting this. Aside from my concern for those kids, I'm really struggling to understand why someone being openly STALKED AND HARASSED by their ex is .. funny? Meme worthy? Kim is probably so scared."

Another user mused, "Treating someone with more care and respect than they're treating themselves during a mental health episode shouldn't be difficult to do or something that even requires saying. And yet it does. Repeatedly."

One user complimented Jamil for the post and said, "Wise and compassionate. Thank you for sharing," while another said, "Empathy shouldn't be a novelty. [heart emoji]" A third commented, "I'm not necessarily a fan of either. However, what is happening with Kanye is absolutely heartbreaking. I hope someone in his trusted circle can get him the help he needs. It's not at all funny. It's really sad," while a fourth added, "Here here - Bipolar is no joke and people that have it need support from professionals [broken heart emoji]"

"I think we need to be clearer about separating his mental health (off limits) with his abusive behavior (okay to address). We also need to be clear that his abusive behave is not caused by bipolar disorder," felt one user, while another said, "Im so sorry but if he loses access to his kids for harassing their mother that's solely on him," and a third replied, "It's actually terrifying that Kim and the kids are having to go through this.."

Meanwhile, Kanye West acknowledged his recent behavior on social media in an Instagram post captioned, "I've learned that using all caps makes people feel like I'm screaming at them. I'm working on my communication. I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank everybody for supporting me. I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim. I take accountability. I'm still learning in real time. I don't have all the answers. To be good leader is to be a good listener."
