The actress slammed Yasir Hussain for making fun of people’s insecurities. Hania Amir had shared the picture of her face with acne on an Instagram post, intending to raise the issue of strict beauty standards set by society and the pressure it has upon people to meet it in order to feed one’s self-esteem.
Sharing photos of her acne, she asked, “Why is my skin defining me? Who has made these beauty standards that we always feel the need to match? […] I know that the idea of being “perfect” is appealing to the majority but you don’t need to be an airbrushed flawless image to feel beautiful.”
Her fans and fellow celebrities appreciated her post including celebrities like Syra Shahroz and Meesha Shafi. The post garnered 120,000 likes and comments.
In between this, Yasir Hussain’s irreverent and frivolous joke upset Hania Amir. Yasir Hussain in his AMA session on Instagram was asked to describe Hania Amir in one post and he replied with ‘Daanedar’ (pockmarked).
Hania initially brushed his comment off, saying, “Forgive my friend. He’s become prone to making inappropriate jokes.” Later, however, she addressed the mean-spiritedness behind the joke, saying: “It’s high time that people realize that it’s not okay to make jokes out of people’s insecurities. Humour is great but be careful with it.
Don’t try and act cool about making someone feel bad about what they might consider a flaw. It’s disrespect. Not funny. I’m not laughing. No one is.” Yasir Hussain, however, did not respond back or apologised as his crude remarks have definitely upset even his followers as well.
