Pakistani singer Momina Mustehsan received backlash for her new hair colour as she appeared for the star-studded red carpet of Pakistan International Screen Awards (PISA) 2020 in Dubai.
While Momina anticipated appreciation, she encountered backlash on Twitter for her new look. It is not that she had revealed her blonder hairs look for the first time, she appeared earlier at the HUM Style Award with which she donned a red dress.

But this time around, Momina Mustehsan, paired her blonde hair with a matching off-shoulder yellow gown for PISA; monstrosity that spurred a massive backlash from netizen on Twitter.
Mustehsan was brutally mocked on social media, as Twitter users compared her to foods such as Haldi, corn, mustard and egg yolk.
Is she a chalta phirta *Haldiram* brand?

Amid the crass backlash, she also received heartening support from a few social media users. Some slammed the outrageous bullying of Momian Mustehsan while others defended her saying that Momina Mustehsan has the right to wear what she likes and nobody should demean her for her choices. Others pointed out that Momina Mustehsan has worn the dress that Mahira Khan wore earlier.

Momina Mustehsan, however, has not responded to the backlash like the way she usually does.
Earlier, singer Momina Mustehsan was trolled for her dance performance at the Lux Style Awards. The Lux Style Awards opened up with the performance of the singer in which Mushtehsan had performed along with Lyari rapper.
Her video from the show went viral on social media and people could not resist taking jibes at her. Netizens also slammed the organizers of the Lux Style Awards for giving her the stage when she can’t dance.

Again, she was targeted for her dressing for her dance performance at the Lux Style Aware as one user had written “Momina Mustehsan should sack the stylist who styled her for #LSA2019.
The Coke Studio sensation has confronted backlash on social media on several occasions before.
