Parineeti Chopra's friend has a fitting response for all 'shamers' on social media





It is very rare to find a day when someone on social media does not get offended by the posts shared on the platform. Don't you think so? So recently,Parineeti Chopra became a victim of Twitter trolls when the actress shared a video wishing her friend a very happy birthday along with Alia Bhatt.

While this could have passed off easily as just another video, it somehow took the web world by storm when people started trolling the actress for being fake and fat shaming her friend.

The otherwise quite vocal actress remained mum and now we have her friend giving a fitting response to all the haters out there. Pay attention as the post makes a hell lot of sense!


Here's what he shared:

"I'd tried to stay silent after this so-called body shaming made its way into the news, but I feel I have to speak out now. And what I'd like to say is, I'm irked on a lot of fronts. First, the fact that someone used a personal video to attack an individual disgusts me. Second, I feel it abhorrent that people would choose to accuse Parineeti of body shaming when she herself has been so vocal about the issue (which is real and important). She has worked incredibly hard to achieve a certain level of fitness, and she of all people knows what it's like to be teased about her weight. She would never do that to me. Third, I find it hard to believe that people think friendship should be policed. I mean, if people hold such rigid views about what friendship should and shouldn't look like... well, you should hear some of the jokes Parineeti and I share! You'd probably want to jail us both! I feel guilty for drawing my best friend into a hurtful conversation! Such a strong negative response inhibits the openness of people on social media and deters sensibility and normalcy from existing. I'm big on self-deprecation which allows my close friends to banter while maintaining appropriate respect and understanding. Therefore, the baseless hatred I've seen, directed at something that was just a joke, is quite hurtful. It also makes me feel guilty — not for my body, but for drawing Parineeti into a hurtful conversation.

So to all those who are still not happy: since this video generated a lot of hype and some people definitely want more, I will now reveal all the dirty, rude things my best friend has done or said to me in the past, and I am adding appropriate hashtags for your convenience:

1) She once called me dinosaur #DinosaurShaming

2) She snatched my last piece of chocolate #FoodShaming

3) Once she said I looked constipated #PottyShaming

4) She once said I'm toxic #BritneyBlaming

5) We went for 9-pin balling #UnnecessaryGaming

6) She visited a zoo with me #LionTaming

7) She told me lame jokes #ConstantLaming

8) She repeated what I just said #Saming

9) We both sucked at archery #UselessAiming

10) We sent each other video messages #FriendlyMemeing



And while you go ahead and share the above, maybe you'll also find it in your heart to remember the positive side of her now-controversial video message to me — that, at a time when technology and instant fame can cut us off from our friends, Parineeti made a special effort to wish me on my birthday. She got Alia Bhatt to wish me too and totally made my day. She showed me what good friendship is all about, and didn't let her stardom colour the way we conduct our friendship, lame jokes and all. I hope by now, the point is clear. Life should not always be taken so seriously, and sometimes it is appropriate and necessary to see things as they are, not what we would like them to be."
