The View guest Jameela Jamil called Sunny Hosting a “pervert” during the live broadcast. The outspoken Brit made an appearance on the daytime talk show on Wednesday, September 14. For the past few years, she became known for her social justice activism rather than her acting. Jameela often makes headlines for the topics she talks about on her social media accounts.
Jameela made her biggest break yet. The actress was the perfect match for the talk show that’s not afraid to shy away from tough topics. During the interview, Jameela had an awkward encounter with Sunny. She called out the 53-year-old on-air. Find out what happened between the two for her to react this way.
Jameela Jamil teases co-host Sunny Hostin
Jameela Jamil made an appearance on The View to talk about the new Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which premiered in August 2022. On the new show, Jameela stars as Mary McPherran, whose alter-ego is Titania. The star also talked about her struggles with mental health and the overturn of Roe v. Wade. Later in the interview, Jameela shared her thoughts on cancel culture.
Things got awkward when Sunny struggled to say Jameela’s character’s name. This live blunder caused her co-hosts to giggle. It all started when The View shared a clip of the hit television series that’s got Marvel fans talking.
“As we just saw in the clip, you came to kick some, you know, butt in Marvel’s new She-Hulk series, but it’s not as easy as it seems, right?” Sunny asked. “Because you’re playing Titiana? Titania?”
Sunny emphasized the first three letters of the name, which you can guess for yourself. Her co-hosts couldn’t stop laughing about her live blunder. Jameela made a funny expression when Sunny tried to pronounce her character’s name. The Good Place alum assumed the host had something else on her mind.
“Because of my boobs, everyone calls her that,” Jameela joked. “It’s Titania, you pervert!”
The View co-host was embarrassed by her blunder
Sunny Hostin appeared embarrassed by her mistake. She slightly smiled as she tried to get the name right. The news anchor asked the rest of the question. The View co-hosts howled over Jameela’s response to Sunny’s pronunciation of her character’s name. Once Sunny finished her question, the 36-year-old gave a thoughtful response.
“I love that she’s the bad guy. For so many reasons. First of all, women get so demonized and villainized anyway, it’s nice to just come out the gate, straight away, a bad person,” Jameela exclaimed. “But it’s also so liberating. I love to see a South Asian play the bad guy when they’re not a terrorist. It was such a joy, and I got to do my own stunts. I got to learn how to fight, like really fight.”
The View fans loved Jameela on the show. Most of them want her to become the new panelist in case one of the ladies leave. They think she would bring a different viewpoint to the show. What are your thoughts on Jameela’s interview? Sound off below in the comment section.
