A new controversy hits floor when Meesha Shafi, Coke studio famed singer, took a vague jibe at model Sadaf Kanwal’s at a recent episode of the talk show Tonite with HSY.
Sadaf’s appearance with Amna Ilyas on the show caused quite a stir over social media, when Sadaf expresses her views on #metoo movement and mocked Meesha for her latest Ali zafar Harassment scandal.
“You know aap ke saath MeToo jab ho, tab boldo. Baad mai aap ko yaad araha hai MeToo. So I think jab ho boldo. Agar mere saath MeToo kabhi hua tou mai bolungi na aur mai social media pe nahi bolungi mai aap sab ko bataungi, [You know, whenever MeToo happens with you, say it. Why are you being reminded of it later so I think when it happens say it. If MeToo ever happens with me I will say it and I won’t say it on social media I will tell you]” she had said during the show.
It was baffling to see how she didn’t even utter the term ‘sexual harassment/abuse’ once throughout the show and kept referring to it as ‘MeToo’, and then indirectly hinted toward the Meesha-Ali case stating “Baad mei yaad aa raha hai”. It wasn’t just one statement that went down the drain in that talk show; whilst preaching people not to judge others and to embrace their individuality, the two models fervently passed remarks on other celebrities.
