Pakistani celebrities on social media are actively engaging with their fans and audience to speak up about social and personal issues.
Recently, Pakistani actress Hania Aamir shared on her social media the ordeal of her life and living with insecurities was caused due to unrealistic beauty standards, which has led to anxiety and depression.
The Janaan star spoke about her struggle with acne and anxiety in a brave post on social media.
Meanwhile, Yasir Hussain made a crass and distasteful comment on Hania’s post, during a Q&A session on Instagram with his fans, Hussain responded to a question by a fan about his thoughts on the Janaan actress.
“Danedaar”, Hussain responded, tagging Hania in the post.
To this the actress gave her two cents and called out Hussain for his offensive comment.
“Maaf kijiyega mere dost ko. Inko aaj kal inappropriate jokes marne ki adat si hogai hai,” which translates to, “Please excuse my friend. He’s somewhat habitual of making inappropriate comments.”
Instead of apologizing, Yasir Hussain went further and ridiculed the actress with another response.
“Bus dost keh dia, isi liye likha tha. Joke nahi tha, Acne ko Urdu me dana kehty hain burger (You called me your friend, that’s why I wrote this. It wasn’t a joke. That’s what you call acne in Urdu, burger [slang for elite]),” he wrote.
To his response, Hania posted a status on her Instagram
“We brush off insecurities and people pointing them out like it’s no big deal but knowing it’s someone’s insecurity and still making fun of it is the worst thing you can do,” she penned. “It is wrong on so many levels!” wrote Hania.
She added, “It’s high time people realise it is not okay to make jokes out of other people’s insecurities. It’s disgusting and not funny at all. Humour is great but be careful with it. Don’t try and act cool about making someone feel bad about what they might consider a flaw. It’s disrespectful. Not funny.
Hania concluded with, “Degrading is not funny. I’m not laughing. Nobody is.”
Earlier, Hussain stirred up a controversy after mocking the transgender community. Furthermore, the 32-year-old actor also made inappropriate comments about child sexual abuse at Hum Awards.
