Jamelia backlash after claiming Britain is Islamophobic in bust up with Nigel Farage


Jamelia clashed with Nigel Farage on Loose Women during a discussion over his recent comments on the failure of immigration .

The presenter claimed that the Ukip leader had singled out the British Muslim community in the wake of the Paris terror attacks .

But some viewers were quick to call the Strictly star “uneducated” and “stupid” for her comments.

Jamelia said to the politician: “You are singling out Muslim communities, don’t you believe that we already have a huge state of Islamophobia here already.
“Do you not feel that you are inflaming the situation by singling out a particular section of British society?

Mr Farage had said that the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, had made “one of the biggest policy errors we’ve seen in modern times” after welcoming refugees into Europe.

He claimed he wasn’t saying British Muslims were the problem but a “small strain of Islam” who identified with extremists.
But Jamelia countered: “And the Muslims don’t identify with them.”

The singer later added: “Why are terrorists allowed to become the public face of Islam? That is what is wrong.”

Mr Farage replied, “None of us want that”, but was spoken over by Jamelia who said: “That is what is going on.”

@loosewomen Honestly has anyone ever told @jamelia that she only talks nonsense. Completely pointless. Think before you speak please.

Some Loose Women viewers believed that Jamelia had missed the point of the discussion: “Honestly has anyone ever told jamelia that she only talks nonsense. Completely pointless. Think before you speak please.”

“Oh shut up Jamelia, you uneducated idiot and let the others have a debate. #loosewomen,” added another Twitter user.
One said: “@loosewomen jamelia getting it embarrassingly wrong again!”

And one upset viewer said: “Can’t believe jamelia thinks that we are all Muslim haters etc @loosewomen i love people of all nations n faiths and she should apologise. (sic)”

Some other viewers complimented the singer for speaking on behalf of other faiths, but others slammed her for her generalisation Britain was Islamophobic.
