It's sad how most Pakistanis can’t even embrace their own skin colour: Zaid Ali


Pakistani-Canadian comedian Zaid Ali T tied the knot last year and is clearly head over heels for his significant other. The vlogger shared pictures of their wedding on social media, which caused quite a stir amongst his fans.

Recently, the couple announced that they are on their first trip to Pakistan together. Taking to Twitter, Zaid posted a picture with his wife and captioned it, “First time in Pakistan together.”

While some people welcomed the couple with open arms, others criticised his wife, Yumna.

Zaid later took to Twitter to give a befitting reply, and wrote, “Read a comment today on my photo which said ‘Your wife is ugly because of her dark skin’. It’s so upsetting how most Pakistanis can’t even embrace their own skin colour.”

And people lauded his no-holds-barred stance!

Your wife is beautiful. Why do you care about everyone's opinion?? You like each other, that should be enough.

The saddest part is that this is not only Pakistanis opinion , this opinion of many people around the world… it’s 2018 and there are still people that believe the only standard of beauty is having fair skin and anything else is not.

Previously, Zaid shut down trolls on Twitter and gave his two cents, when people called him out on his wife’s looks. He posted, “I love how my wife’s looks are more important to people than all the other issues in the world.”
