Mansha Pasha

Nobody likes to be trolled but it seems like celebrities have it hardest of all. Can you imagine having millions of people you don’t know pouring into your social media mentions every single day and coming for you with the most vicious and specific insults they can come up with? We certainly don’t know how we’d deal, but we hope we’d have one ounce of the style that these internet icons had when dealing with their assorted haters.

 

Trolling after every award show seems to be the new normal. Post, the 20th Lux Style Awards Mansha Pasha and Mira Sethi became the recent victims that got bashed by the trolls for their clothing and style. However, both the beauties were in no mood to spare them.

Masha took to Twitter and gave a shut-up call to all the haters out there, “Every award show ends with a slew of sermonizing comments under the photos of all female celebrities making character judgments about how good or bad she is based on her outfit. Honestly this is the real superficiality. Judging a person’s inner nature based on an outfit choice.”

 


She further tweeted, “If you think verbal abuse (well intended or justified in your minds perhaps) makes you a good person, please check again.”

 


Mira Sethi also expressed her views on the matter in an long Instagram post, “It’s always fascinating to see trolls go nuts under photos of public-facing women in dresses or costumes or anything the trolls deem “vulgar.”

She further added, “Go home. I don’t dress for you, I don’t dress for anyone or anything other than my own sense of joy and play and expansion. The men of this country are obsessed with policing women, constantly defining their ‘honour’ in relation to women’s bodies and clothing and appearance. It is a smallminded, decayed, hateful thing to do. You want to disempower us because a deep part of you is hurting and angry. I get it. It’s societal and it is ugly.”

 

Mira concluded, “To the women who continue to secularize public spaces with their words and clothes and defiance: you inspire me. On the face of it, it looks merely glitzy and silly, but only those subjected to the heat of abuse know that simply by being – by asserting with our voices and bodies – we are clawing back space from rotten hierarchies of power and control.”
