Following protests broke out in the US, where thousands took to the streets to condemn killings of black people at the hands of police and to demand reform, celebrities all over the world starting raising their voice in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Recently, Zara Noor Abbas came under fire on Instagram where she had posted a video of a little African-American girl who was talking about the discrimination her community has had to face, on the basis of her skin colour.
When someone called her out for protesting racism globally on the one hand and endorsing a face whitening wash locally on the other, the actor was quick to defend herself.
Good, because that does not promote killing. 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 Zara.
