The Internet celebrity, Lilly Singh, turned to Twitter on Friday to express her concern about the state of violence and conflict that occurred in India since the adoption of the Citizenship Amendment Act.
The Canadian YouTuber of Indian origin, formerly popular as ‘Superwoman’, wrote “India is so close to my heart. It saddens me to see violence and discrimination happening. It’s not right.” The host of ‘A little late with Lilly Singh’ added: “I would be very grateful if someone could send me reliable sources of information so I could learn more.”
The tweet occurs amid continuing protests and clashes between police and civilians in several states, including Uttar Pradesh, where the situation is tense after the death of at least 19 protesters in clashes this week. The protests, which began after December 12 when the Narendra Modi-led government approved the CAA, intensified in all states after protests led by students from Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi became violent with several students who They were injured in subsequent clashes with the Delhi police.
At that time, Singh’s tweet has gone viral with more than 7,000 likes in just a few hours. In response to their request for “reliable sources of information” on the matter, several journalists, political activists, news organizations and common cyber netizens shared links to the media coverage of the protests. Many appreciated Singh for talking about it.
However, many criticized the social media star for his tweet, accusing her of consenting to his privilege with the tweet.
I’m so sick of the privilege shown here … You have a team … Resources … And position … ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Everything minimum !! ” instead of asking “Trusted source” on twitter !!! …

Are you a real millionaire and are you going to act as if you don’t have access to information? It is both false and lazy, and all it does is to gain more time to secure the bag under the pretext of “I did not know what was happening”, it is disappointing but not surprising.

You could have used Google, you know. Instead of this tweet that sounds very fake. Disappointed.

It is so close to your heart but so far from thoughts. The problems have been going on for a while. This looks like a lipstick device.

So disappointing Lilly. You literally did a career in desis and our whims and when it comes to something substantial, you don’t know enough. Ughh, don’t you have an evening program and therefore you should be aware of current affairs and have opinions?
