People Are Using Dark Humor To Cope With Patari CEO's Sexual Harassment Incident And It’s Honestly A Little Fucked Up

By Biya Haq | 12 Apr, 2018

If you’ve been on social media lately, specifically Twitter, you may have seen a series of tweets or, again, more specifically – screenshots.

Quite unceremoniously, the CEO of Patari has been forced to resign his position due to incriminating screenshots of him sexually harassing women.

The incident seemed to spark a bit of a discussion on Twitter on sexual harassment and the accountability men need to hold when it comes to their actions.

However, knowing our awaam and knowing the nature of the Internet, users all over the web (men and women) are poking fun at the situation with a ton of dark humor.

The Internet is a big place and while every situation, especially like this should be treated with sensitivity, there will be people cracking jokes.

And yeah, even though it’s completely fucked up, lol, we have to admit it’s also pretty hilarious.

Now, before we go on, we would like to make it clear that we do NOT condone the behavior of Bajwa, of anyone else committing these acts and not even the nature of this humor.

It is a person’s own right to choose how they cope with news and in the world of the Internet, we all know that with every horrific event, comes a meme.

DONE. SO DONE.

Though we may all get a laugh from the jokes that may come of this unfortunate incident, or incidents, in Mr. Bajwa’s case, we must not forget that sexual harassment is a very very real thing in Pakistan.

Sure, we may not have strict rules against it and we most definitely do not speak about the matter in general, but every ugly dark grey sexually harrassed cloud comes with a silver lining.

Just as Harry Weinstein played the catalyst for many of the discussions on sexual harassment happening in the west, perhaps Khalid Bajwa’s resignation will bring about the change we need to see in our own society or at least, direct our attention to it.

What do you think? Will this expose bring a revolution to our side of the pond? Is this a movement in the making? Let us know what you think in the comments below! Love you.
