The leaked nude videos of actress and singer Rabi Pirzada stoked a whirlwind of reactions on social media last weekend as a mammoth of netizens including celebrities rallied in on social media to express solidarity with the singer in the face of devastating breach of her privacy. The social media users highly condemned the circulation of her videos and images without her consent, calling out the people who openly asked and shared her videos on social media.

While a group of social media users condemned her for making such videos, another group slammed the person for stooping low and leaking her videos in the first place.

While the videos and images created chaos on Twitter, it also stirred a debate on the multiple issues, which resulted from the incident including the breach of privacy in cyberspace, victimizing and slut-shaming women, and damaging the dignity and the honour of a woman in vengeance.

The users asserted that leaking the compromising pictures of a woman can have dangerous consequences in a society like Pakistan where women are killed in the name of honour.

The commentators asserted that the sharing of intimate sexual photos without consent subjects a person to emotional distress, trauma and public humiliation. A vile campaign against Rabi Pirzada kicked off shortly after she censured DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor for supporting actress Neelam Munir for performing in an item number in ISPR-sponsored movie ‘Kaaf Kangana’. Earlier, Pirzada had posted a photo in a suicide vest threatening Prime Minister Narendra Modi over atrocities in Kashmir.

The social media slipped into utter confusion following the controversy as users heavily weighed on the subject and even churned up controversy theories. Some called it fake videos while a few asserted that they have been deliberately leaked by the actress herself.

Celebrities Reactions

Human rights activist Nighat Dad informed that leaking and sharing of the non-consensual intimate images on social media is a crime under PECA. Celebrities including Armeena Khan, Meesha Shafi, Salman Sufi, and others condemned the malicious campaign to defame her.

While Twitter users empathized with the actress, they slammed the actress for taking up the opportunity to get attention on social media.

Surprisingly, a score of social media users jumped on the bandwagon and shared their nudes on social media.
