People on social media don’t hold back when it comes to trolling. Their latest prey was the famous singer and scriptwriter Aima Baig. On the opening ceremony of Pakistan Super League on Friday Ariana, I mean Aima, gave a splendid performance.
Aima was seen copying Ariana Grande’s signature high ponytail and her style. Rocking her silver outfit, she attracted a lot of attention on social media soon after her pictures were revealed.
Let’s take a look:

Dude, Aima Baig looks like Ariana Grande more than Ariana Grande looks like Ariana Grande. https://t.co/5emV6qERDx

Some people went a little too far and claimed they do not respect the Baazi singer, for she promotes skin-whitening creams:
Ariana Grande doesn't promote skin whitening products and the gora complex, lets not disgrace her by making comparisons with aima baig 👀 https://t.co/ojA2WkCzKR

While others came to her defense and applauded her performance, song, and style.

And others thought it to be a joke that Aima was even being compared to Ariana in the first place
Not here to diss Aima but Ariana's grip and range can be seen if you watch her on Jimmy Fallon's show rather than her auto tuned songs. She has grip over her vocals

Twitter thinks Aima Baig copied Ariana Grande at PSL opening ceremony https://t.co/em2qO8f9GS. Not Twitter but Pakistani using Twitter are trying to satisfy themselves as usual . Ariana Grande is known worldwide as one of best singer & performer but Aima Baig in Pakistan only 😉

This lad in particular thought it’s about disrespecting your culture:
Idk why y'all are so obsessed with English singers and then tryna act like you're not. Respect your culture but saying that Aima's vocal range is "much higher" than Ariana is a total disgrace to Ariana. Don't compare a local to Grammy wining artist. https://t.co/Sk6uPXyf9V

One Twitter user posted:
It’s sad to see that Paki artists lack originality in style… Aima, we get that Ari inspires you but girl that dress and hairstyle looked horrendous. Lets not forget the poor stage presence. #AimaBaig

In all these shenanigans, most of the people forgot or did not notice that Aima did not remember the lyrics to her own song.
