Bollywood stars irk social media users with controversial racism stances

Bollywood starlets, Priyanka Chopra and Sara Ali Khan, irked followers after they spoke out against racism following death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man. On supporting Floyd’s cause, the former Miss World was highly criticized for staying mum on Islamophobia and brutality on Indian Muslims. The young starkid, on the other hand, faced brutal trolling for her ‘All Lives Matter’ Instagram post.

Sara striking off ‘Black’ to replace it with ‘All’ did not go down well with Twitterati. Sara, who has now deleted the post, was called a ‘clout chasing racist’ and slammed for speaking from a privileged place.
