People Are Extremely Pissed At Faryal Mehmood For Fat-Shaming Hareem Farooq

By Noor | 5 Aug, 2019

Recently, Faryal Mehmood, a Pakistani actress, was seen fat-shaming Hareem Farooq on a television show. While answering a question asked by the host – one that in no way called for any kind of attack – Faryal ended up asserting that Hareem is too fat to fit in a car.

Contextually, the host of the show asked Faryal that if she was going to an award show and had to take four actresses with her, who would she choose?

The options were Sajal Aly, Mehwish Hayat, Saba Qamar, Hareem Farooq, and Mahira Khan. Faryal Mehmood said that she won’t take Hareem Farooq with her because she won’t be able to fit in the car. In Faryal’s words, ‘Haan, woh fit nahe aye ge.’

While the world moves towards a more body-positive outlook, for Faryal to spew this fat-shaming rhetoric is just plain absurd and uncalled for. It’s never been funny to fat-shame people. In fact, for people on the receiving end, it’s straight-up traumatic. Taking to a television show and fat-shaming another lead actress without a semblance of regret or remorse is the kind of attitude that we need to leave behind in the past.

It’s particularly ironic when celebrities raise a hue and cry about bullying, but hypocritically carry out the same, that too, in such a public manner. Obviously, this hasn’t gone down well with people, who are calling out Faryal Mehmood for fat-shaming Hareem Farooq.

People criticized the actress and stated that she was spewing hate without any reason

A few even reminded the actress of her pre-transformation version and stated that it’s sad to see women bringing each other down

Let’s also mention here that fighting fire with fire is absolutely unnecessary as well.

They clearly mentioned that it’s NOT funny to fat shame any individual

People even asserted that it was a mere attention-seeking stunt on Faryal’s part

They went on to argue that attention seekers seek self-worth by attacking others via bringing their physical appearances into question.

The attitude that encourages body-shaming must absolutely be left behind. In a world that’s swiftly trying to be more welcoming to all body types, this mentality alone is what can never be welcome in our present-day society.
