Many international celebrities these days are expressing their opinions on the ongoing farmers’ protests. Their opinions have dived social media into two. While many netizens are appreciating the support from international celebrities, others are not quite happy with people from outside speaking of something happening inside the country. The debate is to date going on and there are no signs of it stopping anytime soon.
Recently, taking to her Twitter handle, Mia Khalif expressed her opinion on the ongoing farmers’ protests. She showed her support towards the protesting farmers.
Now, Mia asked Priyanka Chopra Jonas to voice her opinion on the farmers’ protestors. Her tweet didn’t go well with the netizens who schooled her for the same. The netizens informed Mia that PeeCee has already tweeted in support of farmers back in December itself.
Mia’s tweet asks, “Is Mrs. Jonas going to chime in at any point.” Furthermore, she adds, “I’m just curious. This is very much giving me shakira during the Beirut devastation vibes. Silence.”
Responding to Mia’s question, a Twitter user wrote, “She already did. And got dragged for standing up in support of the farmers.”
The world-renowned actress’s tweet in support of the ongoing farmers’ protest reads, “Our farmers are India’s Food Soldiers. Their fears need to be allayed. Their hopes need to be met. As a thriving democracy, we must ensure that this crises is resolved sooner than later.”
The Fashion actress made this tweet by sharing a tweet made by actor Diljit Dosanjh. Both of these actors faced backlash for standing in support of the protesting farmers.
Speaking of Mia Khalifa’s tweet in support of farmers’ protest reads, "What in the human rights violations is going on.. They cut the internet around New Delhi..” She accompanied the tweet with the hashtag Farmers Protest.
Apart from Mia, other world-renowned icons like singer Rihanna and climate change activist, Greta Thunberg also tweeted in support of the protesting farmers.
Their tweets also didn’t go down with many netizens while others praised them for supporting the farmers.
