to KILLING it at the gym…
I’m already sweating.
She also shares a lot of her personal life with us too
Most of her followers already call her parents “mama” and “papa”, because of how actively Laiba involves them in her uploads.
Although she is a Canadian, she hasn’t forgotten her Pakistani roots at all
So when she decided to come to Pakistan, her fans were overjoyed but she just shared a bad experience at one of Lahore’s biggest malls
Her first stop was Lahore, where she planned for a quick meet-and-greet at Emporium Mall.
She had posted the details on her instagram and it followed with cute posts expressing her excitement to be able to meet her Pakistani fans. Without a doubt, masses of young girls and women had arrived with love to support their sister with the pink hair and Laiba was living. Until security stepped in.
Security tried to physically handle Laiba, which she was NOT having, so they told her to leave. As a result, Laiba had to move her event outside the mall.
I’m literally only going to say this once to paint a clear image for those who weren’t at the meet and greet today … you see my face? IM LAUGHING, watch my snaps… IM SMILING throughout the entire process of being kicked out and moving outside. Read the captions in the previous post AND the one on @bodmonzaid you’ll see I admit to making a mistake with an unplanned meet up. My anger is not towards the guards who escorted me out, it IS to the upper management who were THREATENING my parents talking to them in the most disgusting disrespectful way n NEVER once speaking to me directly when I tried to talk to them, the same management people who were asking the lady guards to GRAB me and literally try and drag me out the mall WHEN IM WALKING OUT BY MYSELF after they asked me to. SOOO.. to the handful of you that wanna come at me telling me I’m playing victim and how dare I plan this without their permission and try this in Canada to see the same result: #1. My meet up was at 6pm-730pm, I got kicked out at 615pm. I left the mall the minute they asked me to, the crowd yelling and following was purely a decision made by everyone there, NOT me #2. If I tried this shit in Canada, and they asked me to leave I WOULD LEAVE. It’s not about being kicked out, it’s simply the fact that the management was DISRESPECTFUL TO MY DAD AND MOM. Point. Blank. Period. I COULD BE ANYWHERE AND IF MY FAMILY IS BEING DISRESPECTED THATS A WRAP FOR ME YOU DONT GET MY RESPECT. So stop playing this “you’re trying to make Pakistan look bad” when I’d do the same exact thing if my parents were disrespected In a dif country. Why do y’all assume I’m TRYING TO make Pakistan look bad on purpose? I was born in Pakistan, I have a Pakistani citizenship, I’m simply recording my experiences as I do in Canada. My meet and greets can be held anywhere, I had no idea this would be the outcome but at least now I know I need to be more careful so I don’t make any one else’s job harder than it needs to be and they can be properly prepared for whatever will come and my parents will be respected. I see everyone’s comments, I appreciate all the love I had SO MUCH FUNNN!!! Karachi I’m coming for you
She later admits that it was probably because it was unplanned and security didn’t give them clearance but…
Papa Zaid went to the mall multiple times and was ignored, but Laiba didn’t want to let her fans down. Soon after she arrived, the security physically grabbed her to move her and didn’t give her a reason to leave.
When she saw her parents being disrespected too, she decided to move it outdoors.
Hopefully her fans’ adoration made up for Emporium security’s behavior.

Well, if what happened to Laiba is as it is, it’s rather embarrassing. We hope she has a wonderful visit to Pakistan and takes back some amazing memories.
