So a guy posted some pretty sexist comments about women and Shaniera Akram came for him
Ameem Haq, who happens to Shoaib Malik’s manager and agent. tweeted something pretty sexist.
He probably thought it wouldn’t make a difference and no one would even care about his casual misogyny but, he was wrong. He probably regretted ever tweeting this dumb shit. Or maybe he didn’t.
Considering the tweet is still up there and he made no apology, my money is on the latter.
Behind every successful man, there’s a woman who has made substantial amount of chai

The thing is, if Ameem would have read this tweet aloud to himself, he could have avoided this entire sorry mess because he would have already known how his tweet reeks of archaic gender roles.
Even some of his cricket bros did not believe him, including Hassan Ali.
Is Hassan the woke bae you’ve been waiting for all along?
Sory brother I’ll not believe on this

Sadly though, Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan might have thought he was saying something to make this situation better but he really wasn’t
Hah. Some men make it better

But it was beloved bhabi Shaniera Akram who simply OWNED Ameem with a single tweet reminding him of what women in the country REALLY do for men
And their hard work goes WAY beyond just making chai.
And cooked and cleaned and washed and starched and ironed and gave birth and raised all his children and looked after his whole entire family. And went to work for 10 hours each day, made more money than he did and never complained once. But her Chai making was worth remembering! https://t.co/qk0YjKZuBF

Other women came to support their sister
Bravo Shaniera! Men say these things. It makes them feel good about how little they do. And how wordless they are when it's time to acknowledge us. But if you had asked what more would you like? You would receive a 1000 new ideas!

The irony is that still she gets the taunt that"tum karti kia ho aakhir"(what is special that you do)

That's a sixer!!
— Mariam Muneeb (@MuneebMariam) October 29, 2018
And thankfully some men sided with her as well
More woke baes for everyone 🙌🏾
Go on shaniera you give it back 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏. Hypocrisy at its heights when it comes to recognising the efforts made by women on the subject matter

Bhabhi is a feminist……Good.
— Taza Gul Kamran (@kami_gulu) October 29, 2018
But of course, that interaction led to some intense debate
Some fellow misogynists even told Shaniera to ‘calm down’.
Lady! That was a Sarcastic tweet but you took it on your heart.

Sit down and learn to take things lightly woman.

Hopefully, Ameem learned a lesson about how making casual misogynistic comments is no longer acceptable. Twitter is a public place and when you’re a known name with a substantial following, you need to think twice about what you say because it will influence people. And making a remark like that, which may seem like all fun and games to some people is actually the reality for a lot of women who are considered as good for nothing but serving the men in their lives.
We can all learn a lesson from this and be a little more considerate in how we treat people and what we say.
What do you think about Ameem’s tweet? Let us know in the comments.
