I’m just a girl like you. My body fluctuates between gaining and losing weight, and often times I feel afraid to speak out about such a sensitive topic. Today I decided to shatter the glass ceiling and speak out because everyone needs to hear that you are alright and don’t let the superficial aspects of the world get you down. Having said all that, iska ye harqiz matlab nahi hai ke app log exercise ya diet karna chor den 😆❤️
In a recent tweet, the model talked about banning fairness creams and her disappointment at fellow celebs who continue to promote whitewashing solutions.
My fellow colleagues inthe industry,time fr promoting fairness creams fr the sake of money n greed has long passed.Our influence as public figures is meant to make othrs feel beautiful,not less beautiful.Shame on evryone,who still subscribes tothis way of thinking! #endcolourism— AMNA ILYAS (@IlyasAmna) October 6, 2020
She stressed upon the fact that celebrities need to use their influence and platforms to send out the correct messages.
The Baaji actor even posted several videos on Instagram to highlight the seriousness of the issue.
However, now, Ilyas is facing immense backlash for her stance and rightfully so.
A video from a TV talk show that aired a few years ago has gone viral on the internet as it shows Ilyas hinting at former model Aminah Haq’s apparent weight gain.
Netizens are calling out the actor for her hypocrisy and are furious at Ilyas for taking a jibe at Haq’s appearance.
