Ali Khan Hyderabadi may have color shamed a girl
Of late TikTok has been the whole world’s destination for instant viral fame on the internet. The reasons one may become famous are many but what remains a common factor is that the app doesn’t discriminate based on economic background when making someone famous.
One overnight success coming out of TikTok has been Ali Khan from Hyderabad popularly known as “Ali Khan Hyderabadi”
Ali’s signature walk became super viral and he became one of the fastest TikTokers in Pakistan to gain more than a million followers. He now stands at over 6 million strong. His videos from his recent, highly anticipated Dubai trip were loved by his fans who can not get enough of his famous walk.
Well, Ali Khan Hyderabadi is once again making headlines again but for making an insensitive joke rather than for his jovial personality
In a recent Instagram live session, Ali invited a fan and later made fun of her dark complexion and asking her to clean her face to appear “clearer”
Ali can be seen in the video saying that the kid with him is getting scared of the complexion of the girl. He also asked the girl to ‘clean’ her camera. The video clearly shows Ali saying, ” bol raha hai kaali larki” as he laughed about the fact that the little child with him on camera reacted to the girl’s appearance.
He further added to his insensitive comment by saying” darr raha hai thora, aap camera saaf karo.”

They found the video clip to be extremely hurtful and setting the wrong example for all the young, impressionable fans that the massively popular TikTok star may have who will watch his reaction and think it’s okay to make fun of people for the way they look
Being prone to skin burn my color went pretty dark last year. The way he is laughing at her breaks my heart in so many ways i can't even describe. These uneducated and insensitive people do not deserve the hype https://t.co/Oym7reUAkd
