“I Own It, I Love It”: Amrita Arora Gives It Back To Trolls Who Body-Shamed Her

Amrita Arora Claps Back At Trolls
Amrita Arora claps back at trolls after she received a massive amount of negative comments targeted at a picture of her with Kareena Kapoor and Malaika Arora. The picture posted was taken at the Karan Johar’s 50 birthday party that took place recently, where these three celebs posed all decked up, but netizens have filled the comment section with hate and insensitive comments, targeting their body, age, and more.

No matter where you are in your life, or what you’ve achieved it seems like women are judged for everything. What you choose to wear, your makeup, your thoughts, and views, even circling down to things we don’t even have control over, age, weight, greying hair, you name it. It looks like age is a badge of social relevance, and unfortunately, this is mostly only the case with women.

A man in his 50s can still be cool, and relevant, but a woman merely over the age of 30 is easily labeled ‘buddhi’. Every time a celeb gets trolled based on the choices they make, it looks like we are moving back in time. Aren’t we supposed to have progressed a little at least in this time and age? Isn’t disrespecting women seen as uncool behavior even in 2022?

Amrita Arora Claps Back At Trolls: Where Do We Draw The Line?

Amrita Arora, Malaika Arora, and Kareena Kapoor have been heavily trolled by the netizens for a picture. The picture showed the three women dressed up beautifully for the Birthday Bash of Karan Johar. The three women have been trolled based on their outfits, their weight, and their age. Comments like ‘Botox Job Gone Wrong’, ‘3 Buddhis’, and ‘You look Huge’ stated some of the comments.

She wrote – “I keep seeing this on comments. If and when I bother to check unless it’s the one that comes up on top! So…buddhi is meant to be an insult?? Cos for me it’s just a word… a word that means old? Yes, we are older and wiser but you are nameless, faceless, ageless? And so are your folks?” Replying to the haters that trolled her based on her weight, she stated- “Also got a lot of hate on my weight gain! I own it …I love it ..my weight is my problem! Since when has everything become everyone’s issue! Ohhh ya since social media gives … I give zero f’ssss … so pls go on, and I’ll name and shame! Ha!”

Kareena Kapoor and Malaika Arora have come in support of Amruta, clapping back at haters. Both have taken to their social media, standing in solidarity with her thoughts on the same. Malaika stated– “You say it, sis… You’re beautiful just the way you are… N guys, it’s so damn uncool to fat shame anyone… Tch tch.”

Trolls seem to have gone out of their minds, shaming women for everything. Recently Priyanka Chopra was trolled for choosing to embrace motherhood through surrogacy, Shehnaaz was trolled as she was seen happy post-Siddarth Shukla’s demise. Where do we draw the line? Isn’t this harassment? What are the repercussions for the same?

It is shameful at this point to see just how many people have a tendency to discriminate, on the basis of age and appearance. Women after a certain age are seen as invalids or misfits.

Why is it so hard for people to live and let live, instead of spreading hate online, which causes actual detrimental mental health issues in human beings?
