Even though the world became one small tight-knit unit with the advent of social media, and everyone knows what's happening via Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Insta Stories—there's a second face to it, the evil one.
Talking about the glittery world of celebrities, we have evolved from a time when one would bank upon breaking news on the television to know some major happening about their fave celebrity, to social media and all trivia at the tap of a fingertip.
Celebs share nuances of their daily lives with us, while most enjoy this detailed peek, many others have found a way to voice their hate. Every second day a celebrity is shamed and called out—be it for their "imperfect" body, failure to meet "beauty standards", an "anti-nationalistic" act—literally anything.
Kareena Kapoor Khan is the latest celeb to join this bandwagon, and faced a lot of backlash for her choice of make-up at the 47th birthday party that she threw for her hubby dearest, Saif, some days ago.
One of the few people to attend, Soha Ali Khan shared photos of their happy celebration with her Instagram family, but her comment section got populated with nasty comments about Kareena's choice of make-up for the day, which happened to be kohl eyes and nude lips. Yeah, as basic as that!
When will people stop moral-policing, or in this case beauty-shaming celebrities at the drop of a hat? They too can step out with their share of make-up fails (yes, they're allowed to have that!) It really is not fair to harbour expectations from them even in their off-screen moments, and voice hate comments if they fail to meet the so-called standards fans have subject them to, by putting them on a pedestal.
Social media shaming is rampant, and it really ought to stop. But till then, haters gonna hate, potatoes gonna potate—Kareena, you go girl.
