Karl Lagerfeld is not yet cold in his grave and actress, Jameela Jamil has publicly blasted him.

Jamil, who is known for her strong opinions, shared an article from feminist website 'Wear Your Voice' titled, “Stop Mourning Oppressors: Condolences For Karl Lagerfeld.” 

But it wasn't the article sharing that got Twitter riled up, it was Jamil's commentary which comes just days after the designer's death.

“I’m glad somebody said it. Even if it is a little soon. A ruthless, fat-phobic misogynist shouldn’t be posted all over the internet as a saint gone-too-soon,” Jamil wrote.

Supermodel, Cara Delevingne then responded to the tweet, defending the designer:

 “You are calling him ruthless??? Are you kidding me? No one is perfect but you clearly don’t know the man."

Which prompted a lengthy back and forth between the two.

Lagerfeld's controversial opinions have often caught backlash from both the industry and body activists alike.

“[Critics] are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly," he is quoted as saying years back.

He also made the following comments:

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”

“Life is not a beauty contest, some ugly people are great. What I hate is nasty, ugly people. The worst is ugly short men. Women can be short, but for men it is impossible. It is something that they will not forgive in life — they are mean and they want to kill you.”
