Canadian YouTube star Superwoman aka Lilly Singh slams racist people for their ‘lack of education’ and ignorance in her latest sassy 4.40-minute video titled ‘A Geography Class for Racist People’.
In response to a string of racial abuses hurled at her online she gave it back with style by imparting some much necessary geography lessons by stressing on how important is it to ‘make education great again’. She also took an indirect jibe at the US President Donald Trump in the video.
Lilly began the cheeky video by reading out a comment that said, “Go bak to ur country, you terrorist paki afghan indian muslim slut #MakeAmericGreatAgain!”. She then proceeded to give them important lessons that they had missed out on by emphasizing on the importance of a world trip for these trolls to know that India, Pakistan and Afghanistan are actually different countries. She tops it all with the sarcastic pun stating “If you’re gonna be racist, at least do it right.”
This video is not her first win in the “dealing with mean internet comments” game. She has previously slammed sexist comments through videos like ‘How to make a sandwich’ in response to outdated trolls who still think that a woman’s place is in the kitchen. She also sneaks in sassy digs in the video like, “Please note I’m using fresh ingredients to make up for your expired thought process” to make her point and question gender stereotypes.
Social media bullying and trolling have been plaguing the digital space for the past few years, and as a woman YouTube broadcaster, Lilly Singh has found herself at the receiving end on many occasions.
However she has been shattering gender stereotypes, misogyny and racist attitudes with several hilarious videos.
