Netizen ‘burn’ TikToker Nosheen Syed (Dolly) online for setting fire to the forest areas in Margalla Hills for a promotional video. This alarming trend has become a nuisance as public demand action against such young “social media influencers” committing arson for likes and views on the internet.
“Some people just want to watch the world burn,” Alfred Pennyworth from The Dark Knight.
Leave it to TikTok to kick start bizarre new trends on social media. There is just something about the video-sharing platform that brings out the worst narcissistic behavior among youngsters. These young “social media influencers” will do just about anything for likes and views – including setting forest wildfires!
Meet Nosheen Syed (aka Dolly), a TikTok model and dancer. The Pakistani influencer has a large fan following on social media. The TikToker often makes videos of herself lip-syncing or dancing to popular songs. Recently, she did a promotional shoot for a clothing brand, Bling, in the Margalla Hills, Islamabad.
She and her team set the forest area on fire, putting the lives of thousands of citizens in the nearby areas at risk. In the end, she did get her views as the video went viral. The TikToker and fashion brand’s action made everyone upset. They force them to take down the videos immediately.
The internet roasted the young TikToker (no pun intended)
A) @TikTokSupport should BAN THESE PEOPLE.
B) Put these people in jail for destruction of public property, reckless endangerment, destruction of natural capital of this country. They must not be spared!
C) Legislate! @ICT_Police @dcislamabad please find these people! https://t.co/6myepVbuH9
