"If you don't see that, then you are in a bubble," Jamil told Sampaio.

Jameela Jamil is once again criticizing the modeling industry -- and there's at least one supermodel who is not a fan.

"The Good Place" star and Victoria's Secret model Sara Sampaio went at it on Twitter Tuesday after Jamil shared a clip from Vienna Fashion Week 2018 over the weekend, which showed the Gold Caviar Crew dancing down the runway in Nigerian clothing.

The actress, who is a former model herself, praised the runway show, tweeting, "this looks like the most fun, and not a long-starved terrified teenager in sight. Beautiful." Sampaio went off on Jamil, calling her out for her criticism.

"How about celebrating someone without bringing other people down?" Sampaio tweeted. "Calling runway models 'long-starved terrified teenager' is extremely offensive. From someone that is always preaching for body positivity this just screams hypocrisy."

Jamil, who never seems to shy away from an argument, told Sampaio to "calm down." Although she clarified she wasn't referring to "all models" in her tweet, Jamil then claimed the "vast majority" of "young girls" in the industry are "starving themselves, and using drugs and cocaine to control their weight, to meet the very small sample sizes."

"If you don't see that, then you are in a bubble," the British actress said in her reply to the Portuguese model. Jamil added that she doesn't "preach positivity" but rather "moving away from all talk of body" in order to "combat" eating disorder culture.

Sampaio didn't take Jamil's words lightly and defended the industry while also throwing some more shade at Jamil.

"You didn't say all models, sure, but you still chose to attack girls just so you can celebrate others," Sampaio wrote. "Eating disorders, drugs and cocaine use aren't a exclusive problem of models, it's a huge problem is society as a whole."

"And about modeling I can for sure talk with more certainty than you," she continued and added in another tweet, "It's very simple to celebrate someone without having do drag other people. And make general negative assumptions about a whole group of people. most of these girls are teenagers! And they don't deserved [sic] to be constantly put in a negative box like you just did."

Jamil explained how she was a model and model agent in the past and criticized Sampaio for defending the "unrealistic standards" of the modeling industry, which Jamil called "highly toxic."

In reply, Sampaio said, "With all due respect now it just feels like I'm talking about apples and your [sic] talking about pears! I think I've been very clear in what I meant."

Jamil made another long criticism of the modeling industry and dieting. However, Sampaio said the actress was diminishing other people and being "negative for girls."

"Don't police how I choose to celebrate something or call out something problematic," Jamil replied. "I was celebrating that it's a refreshing change, compared to the toxic fashion show norm. I'm an activist. My words aren't cute, or easy, or inoffensive. Change doesn't come from being polite."

The Twitter war was reignited Wednesday morning. Check out the tweets below!
