Union minister and former TV actress Smriti Irani isn't one to take trolls and bullies lightly. She recently posted a picture of her 15-year-old daughter and soon after, took the post down. However, she reposted it with a strong message on bullying.
In her post, she shared how her daughter pleaded her to delete the selfie because she was being bullied in school. A boy in her class targetted her looks in the Instagram picture. But Smriti decided to strike back! She posted the picture again with a message addressed to the bully.
Her post reads, "I deleted my daughter’s selfie yesterday coz an idiot bully in her class, A Jha, mocks her for her looks & tells his pals in class to humiliate her for how she looks in her mother’s insta post. My child pleaded with me ‘ Ma please delete it, they are making fun of me’. I obliged coz I could not stand her tears. Then I realised my act just supported the bully. So Mr Jha , my daughter is an accomplished sports person, record holder in Limca Books, 2 Nd Dan black belt in Karate, at the World Championships has been awarded bronze medal twice; is a loving daughter and yes damn beautiful. Bully her all you want, she will fight back. She is Zoish Irani and I’m proud to be her Mom ❤️"
What a fitting response! Her powerful post on Instagram has gone viral for all the right reasons.
Fellow TV actors and co-stars flooded the comments section with love and support. Actress Divya Seth Shah said, "YES! Fight back Zo.. you are gorgeous in every which way. Insecure bully can cower in your glory! Shine on darling ♥️"
Actor Maniesh Paul commented, "🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 Thats the way!!" and actress Jaswir Kaur said, "The people who bully others r not confident about themselves 🙏 they r weak, one should reply them saying "get well soon" 👍"
Isn't it heartwarming to see a mom stand up for her daughter?
