Television actor Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya posted pictures on Instagram from the gym, where she called Indian mosquitoes her alarm clock. The term ‘Indian Mosquito’ did not go down well with one of the social media users and the person termed it a derogatory comment. The netizen stated it is derogatory to the country, as she used the word ‘Indian’ before mosquito. Divyanka slammed the netizen, following which the netizen deleted the post, but the actress shared a screenshot of it.
While Divyanka’s Instagram caption read, “Famous Indian Mosquitoes were my alarm clock today. Hope you all had a better night?! #GoodMorning.” A person taking a dig at her commented, “Using the term Indian mosquitoes sounds very derogatory to the country. I am a big fan of yours but don't appreciate the coined term.” Responding to this, the Yeh Hai Mohabattein actress replied, “I’m in India. These mosquitoes are in India. I’m a famous Indian. Those mosquitoes can be famous too. Why this bias between humans and insects? Tch tch! (Above caption was meant to be funny).”
She continued, “If you are being serious, then on a serious note – Let’s become mature and real instead of being uber-sensitive Indians & let’s better call a spade a spade. Bharat mein, mere ghar ke baaju mein open naala hai aur yahan macchhar hain! Aur yeh sach hai! Amazon ke jungle mein bhi macchhar hain… Yeh boloon to kya Amazon waasiyon ko bura lagna chaiye? Come on chhoti chhoti baaton pe serious mat ho! Bade bade masle bhi hain hamare aas paas!
As he deleted the post, the actress who had saved a screenshot of it shared it on INSTA Stories with the caption, “This person quickly deleted the comment. But I do get shocked by such delicate sensitivities. Macchhar se zyada aisi naazuk soch se pareshaan hoon ab” ALSO READ: Divyanka Tripathi To Mohsin Khan, Check Out These Celebrities’ Educational Qualifications That Will Definitely Surprise You
