Looks like Bollywood star-kids are learning a trick or two from their parents to hit back at their shamers on social media.
Sridevi’s younger daughter Khushi was recently body shamed by a girl online. But instead of keeping quiet, she wrote: “Please think twice before you decide to comment something rude or offensive, it’s not a joke. It’s sad how in this day and age where feminism is finally getting the attention it deserves, girls still feel the need to tear each other down and indulge in body shaming.”
I post my pictures because I feel good and confident. I put out these pictures not because I want to show off or try to be anyone or anything else. I have my own sense of style and my own way to think and me putting out a picture that's accessible to so many people is taken more of an opportunity to judge me or my looks, clothes or anything else. I put something out there because it's something I feel good about, everyone is entitled to have their own opinion but putting someone else down because of it is not making you any better of a person. Please think twice before you decide to comment something rude or offensive, it's not a joke. It's sad how in this day and age where feminism is finally getting the attention it deserves, girls still feel the need to tear each other down and indulge in body shaming. I don't care if you think my stomach pops out or if I don't fit into your idea of beautiful, but for your own conscience please realize that having such narrow minded opinions of people makes you an ugly person inside. I truly believe everyone is beautiful in their own way, why can't we all celebrate that and encourage each other. There is only one of you, embrace your beauty, and don't rain on my parade when I'm confident enough to embrace mine. I hope that whatever it is that frustrates you enough to be so cruel will one day go away, because some people might actually take your snide remarks seriously, and I know from experience it can hurt. Let's be kind to one another, love always x
In another incident, a fan approached Sanjay Dutt’s daughter, Trishala Dutt, on Instagram and after being rejected, called her an ugly b*&^%. Dutt wrote back: “Funny how I didn’t seem so ugly a few minutes before he started to feel some typa way I don’t understand you children, do you not know how to accept rejection?”
Actor Pooja Bedi, whose daughter Aaliyah Ebrahim also faced a barrage of hate comments after a website published a story on her, said, “I really appreciate these kids for the way they are handling people who pass snide remarks on them for no reason. As a mother, I am really proud of my daughter for the way she dealt with it and similarly for Sridevi’s daughter Khushi.”
