We have come across people shaming or trolling every second person for their posts on social media. Be it right or wrong reason, some people still find a reason to troll them. From body shaming to talking about their skin colour, it has been a never-ending story.
Our true nationality is mankind. No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can also be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
With social media dominating the world, people get to express their own opinion. But at times, netizens come up with comments which are deemed contrary to the spirit of human values.
Several female Bollywood celebrities have been on the receiving end of body-shaming trolls. However, there are some celebrities who hit out at the body shamers by coming up with bold statements.
Parineeti Chopra was often criticised for her weight. She took to Instagram and uploaded a plump photo of her with a long caption. “All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them.
Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give into the “Bollywood pressure”? To that I say – Thank God I became an actor and had that pressure! I can achieve what I couldn’t achieve otherwise.
I feel confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud! Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives.”
