‘A Face-wash Is Killing No One’ – Zara Noor Abbas Defends ‘Promoting Racism’ Allegations
Zara Noor's post against racism goes wrong as netizens dig out her endorsement with fairness creams in the past
Protests have erupted across the United States in the past few days following the death of an unarmed black man in police custody. The video of the killing, recorded by a bystander, has led to a resurgence of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.
Citizens have come out in the US to demonstrate the death of George Floyd and police brutality towards African-Americans. People, including celebrities have flocked to Instagram to pledge their support.
Pakistani diva Zara Noor Abbas is one of the most talked-about actors of recent times. She is often seen sharing her personal and professional details on Instagram with fans.
Recently, Zara, who is best known for her role as Arsala in Khamoshi, ensured her share of voice against racism in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody.
Abbas shared a video that highlighted why black lives mattered with a caption;
“Imagine. Our kids. People we know. Go through this. Every day of their life. Just because of their skin color. Then adds up their societal balance of the class. Bank account. Assets. They have to fight for the basics, such as breathing. Racism is a war. Not a threat to humanity. It is a war that we have to fight against so much so that we have to re-invent, re-grow, re-think every thought and idea about classism. Differences. Sexism. Everything.
NO ONE DESERVES THIS.”
However, the actress got brutally slammed by the netizens because she, herself, endorsed fairness creams in the past. She was mocked with comments like “Really liked your fairness cream ad,” following which the actress lost her cool.
Nevertheless, her co-star Osman Khalid Butt does not think to endorse such products promotes hatred or violence against a community.
“Good, because that does not promote killing. It does not promote racism. Stop making this out of context when its not the agenda. Your word doesn’t matter here. What matters is human life and equality, and this is what I am here for. A face wash is killing no one,” justified Abbas.
