[WATCH] Amna Ilyas under fire as a video of her ‘body shaming’ fellow model goes viral
Kanwal had to guess Aaminah Haq's name.
A Famous Pakistani supermodel, Amna Ilyas, who has been vocal against discrimination based on a person’s complexion and weight, has been labeled “a hypocrite” by social media users after an old video of her surfaced on social media.
In the video, Ilyas and model Sadaf Kanwal are playing a game on a talk show where they have to guess a person’s name with signs.
Kanwal had to guess Aaminah Haq’s name. Ilyas made gestures of a chubby person. Kanwal then exclaimed, “Has she now become overweight? Is it Aamina Haq?”
Even the show host and fashion designer, Hassan Sheheryar Yasin, was shocked. “Oh my God,” he said slowly.
Social media users have been calling Illyas a hypocrite for doing the opposite of what she endorses.
However, the model believes she has not done anything wrong. As the trolling increases, she posted a video on her Instagram, where she says that she has never been a hypocrite before closing her car’s windows.
On the other hand, tackling it with grace, the former model, Amina Haq, recently responded to the controversy saying, “unhappy people tend to gravitate towards hate instead of kindness and compassion.”
“A few of you have tagged me in something a model said about me. Truth be told, if body shaming me brought some small shred of joy in her life, then you are welcome!” Haq wrote in her Instagram story.
