The brutal killing of George Floyd in America became a big worldwide issue as it mirrored the racial abuse that is still prevalent in our society. Celebrities across the globe have expressed their regret over this incident and criticized the police atrocities over the black people.
Milky beauty Tamanna Bhatia recently posted a black and white picture with a black hand mark on her face. She wrote, 'Your silence will no protect you. Doesn't every life matter, human or animal? Muting any form of creation is against the universal law. We must unlearn and learn to be human again. Express compassion and practice love. #AllLivesMatter #WakeUpWorld.'
Not just Tamanna but other celebrities like Sonam Kapoor too responded over this incident.While some people are praising our celebrities for having concern, most of the others are asking why these celebrities do not question about the problems in our country like casteism, poverty, religious fights, corruption and others. Some are pointing out that Tamanna used to advertise for a fairness cream and questioning how can she talk about racial discrimination.
Another Bollywood actor Abhay Deol sarcastically questioned on why other celebrities are not talking on issues that our country people are facing. He added hashtags like #migrantlivesmatter #minoritylivesmatter #poorlivesmatter. His tweet indirectly pointed out at many celebrities like Tamanna. There is certainly truth in Abhay's questions. Can any Bollywood actor answer his question?
