Enough Is Enough! Amrita Arora Opens Up About Being Age & Body Shamed

Let’s get one thing straight – age shaming someone is never OK. However, people are still prone to criticising the appearances of others, including those of celebrities. Recently, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the target of trolls who couldn’t stop talking about how she was trying to look a certain way, when all she did was gracefully walk the red carpet in her stunning outfit. Time and again, several celebrities have spoken about being age-shamed, including Malaika Arora, Shilpa Shetty, and the latest to do so is Amrita Arora. 

A few hours ago, the actress took to her ‘gram to talk about being age-shamed. She highlighted a comment from her picture with Malaika and Kareena, and wrote, “I keep seeing this on comments! If and when I bother to check, unless it’s the one that comes up on the top. So…buddhi is meant to be an insult? Cos for me it’s just a word…a word that means old. Yes, we are older and wiser…but, you are nameless, ageless, faceless? And, so are your folks?” 


That’s not all, she also addressed being body-shamed. In another post, she mentioned that she has been receiving a lot of hate due to her weight. “I own it, I love it, my weight , my problem! Since when has everything become everyone’s issue? Ohh yeah since social media gives.. I give zero fsss… so pls go on, and I’ll name and shame! Ha,” she stated. Honestly, we’re confused if it’s 1950 or 2022? 

Well, TBH, comments about weight gain, age-shaming, and bullying for clothing choice are never okay, even if the target is a public person. How about taking a moment to think before sending that nasty tweet, DM or comment the next time? How about making social media a positive platform instead? As for Amrita, we’re glad she addressed the issue and didn't let it get to her. More power to you, Amu!
