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.
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.
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.
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.
Recently, film actress Tamannaah Bhatia was targeted by several users on social media for gaining weight post COVID-19. It was so easy for the users to come up with unnecessary comments.
“How insensitive can people around us be?” Tamannaah further added, “I was really scared when getting treated, there was a constant fear of death in me. I had very severe symptoms that I knew had killed others on their way to recovery. But the doctors truly saved me and I should thank my parents too for standing in support. It made me realize how valuable life truly is.”
Tamannah who came across these sort of comments on social media gave an epic reply to silence the haters. She revealed the reason behind gaining weight. She said: “I was on heavy medication which made me look heavy. There were people who call me fat.”
Even Sonakshi Sinha was not spared by the users online. The Bollywood actress gave fitting replies to body shamers. When asked about the problem of body shaming in the media, she replied, “It’s absolutely shameful. Today if anybody has been targeted for being a certain way, it’s me.
But I don’t let it get to me. I know what is more important is that I project a healthy body image for girls who look up to me. Tomorrow if I become skinny, what’s the point? I won’t be able to work well.
I’ll fall sick all the time. I know that’s not my body structure, not my body type. I’ve worked very hard to look the way I look today. I used to weigh 95 kilos. What more do you want from me?”
