Hira Mani has made headlines one too many times for saying the wrong things. This time she’s under fire for joking about the Coronavirus pandemic.
Previously the actress had said that ‘Americans are cowards to self-quarantine‘ amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She even went on to laud Pakistani-Americans who weren’t following precautions.
“There’s a strict curfew here, big brands are closed, streets are empty. I went to a mall here, First Colony and there, all the Pakistani people, salesgirls were present and all white people were on leave; they turned out to be quite cowardly, we’re really cool.”
Not a very wise thing for an actress who is followed by millions of people. Yet she still hasn’t learned a thing and continues to make fun of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Recently, Hira Mani shared a video while singing ‘Corona Mjhay Na Hoona’ on piano.
Despite being heavily trolled and bashed online she then went on to joke about her proximity with husband Mani after the two tested negative for COVID-19.
“Stay home and be safe. Humaray corona kay results negetive hain or self quarantine kay baad ki picture or Abhi bhe we are home isolated tou please app sub bhe isi tarha Ahtiyat kerien zaroori hai”
People weren’t done criticizing the ‘Corona Mjhay Na Hoona’ video and the Ghalti actress came up with this.
What followed was a mix of trolling and criticism. Netizens were appalled by the Pret Na Kariyo actress’s ignorance.
The tone-deaf humor towards how fatal this disease is and the global death toll was not funny.
Others trolled the couple and called this an attempt for publicity.
Some might argue humor is a good means of spreading awareness. The possibility of this being an attempt at awareness was also crossed out. Awareness starts with the acceptance that you have a problem.
The couple was even trolled.
So if you do try to spread awareness about the Coronavirus pandemic through humor be like Shehzad Roy.
