TikTok star Jannat Mirza receives backlash for posting fake news regarding her relationship and breakup. Mirza had posted news of breaking up with another TikToker Umer Butt.
On Tuesday, she posted a message on her Instagram account claiming herself to be single and not in a relationship anymore. She said she is not dating anyone. The news of her breakup spread like a wildfire in the media. Later, on Wednesday, she said that everything is fine between her and Umer Butt. Adding that her message in the Instagram story was a touch of sarcasm and nothing serious. She said she jokingly said it because she did not like Umer Butt in his new appearance and look with a clean shave.

Soon after her clarification, TikToker started receiving backlash on social media. A score of social media users said that TikTokers can do anything for publicity and this was another publicity stunt. Others said that perhaps this relationship is also a mere publicity stunt where the couple is often seen celebrating birthdays and attending parties together. Some said that people should not believe everything they say.
This is not the first time Jannat Mirza has received backlash for her problematic content. She was earlier accused of insulting a cross symbol of Christianity. The Cross sign is a revered religious sign in Christianity, and people of the community have slammed her for wearing it as a fashion accessory.
Christian activists have filed a complaint against Jannat Mirza with Federal Investigative Agency. She has been severely slammed on social media since last week after she posted several videos wearing a silver chain with a cross hanging on it around her waist.
The complainant had filed a case of blasphemy against her. “Mirza has intentionally desecrated across, the holy sign of Christians. She has hurt the religious feelings of millions of Pakistani Christians. She should be punished and arrested,” they stated in a May 28 complaint.
