Nigella Lawson has taken to Twitter to slam US TV stations for photoshopping her when she didn't want to be photoshopped.

The TV star called the editing harmful and said that it pushed a negative view of fat upon people.

"I've had to tell American TV stations not to airbrush my sticking out stomach. The hatred of fat, and assumption that we'd all be grateful to be airbrushed thinner is pernicious," Lawson tweeted.

The tweet was a response to The Good Place actor Jameela Jamil's comments on photoshopping in which she criticised columnist Nadine O'Regan saying Photoshop "used as a tool of erasure of ethnicities, our skin colour, our features".

"She thinks you're 'UGLY' just as you are. She also doesn't understand that a huge part of why I hate Photoshop is how it's used as a tool of erasure of ethnicities, our skin colour, our features. This is embarrassing white privilege and deep misogyny. Slow clap @NadineORegan," Jamil wrote.

Lawson has spoken before about TV executives trying to photoshop her, saying she "didn't want to become what (she's) not."

"I could see them wincing when they saw my tummy bulging out of my dress. And when I say bulging, I don't mean huge. I just mean you could see the roundness. It was a tummy," she told the Telegraph.

"I really didn't want to become what I'm not. I'm all for taking exercise so that I can eat as much as I can without getting too huge but, nevertheless, I didn't want to be turned into a plastic creation.

"I wouldn't want to have to pretend to be something I'm not just for my own anxiety levels," she said.
