In the wake of BJP leader Tarun Vijay making comments about how Indians aren’t racist because they’re accepting of South Indians who have dark skin, actor Abhay Deol has put out a series of sarcastic posts that question the part Bollywood celebrities play in perpetuating the idea that fair skin is better.
John Abraham, Abhay sees you being a sell-out.
Vidya Balan hasn’t been spared from Deol’s wrath either.
Deepika, Abhay expected better from you.
Deol wasn’t scared of dragging King Khan into the debate either.
The actor wrapped it up by driving his point home; if we want racism and xenophobia to end, we have to start by checking ourselves and those around us who encourage these schools of thought.
Talk about being brave enough to call a spade a spade. You can read all his posts here.
