Amna Ilyas is a well-known name in the Pakistani Entertainment Industry. She received the ‘Best Model Award’ in Lux Style Awards. She has always been vocal about issues such as racism, colorism, and so much more. She is very opinionated and is not afraid to have her view known, Amna has often expressed love for her own tan-skin.
But when it comes to implementing this ‘point of view’, it seems like even she herself cannot stand by her stance on body positivity.
Amna’s clip under criticism
Recently, a video clip of Amna Ilyas and Sadaf Kanwal from ‘Tonite with HSY’ is making rounds on the internet, and the model is surely in hot waters. In a segment where Amna had to make Sadaf guess the personality with signs, the former model Amna Haq was the personality that had to be guessed, and well, Ilyas gave signs of her being ‘fat’ with some weird expressions. The two models laughed about it and high-fived one another after it.
Here’s the complete video. (See the video from 27 minute 30 second):
After this clip went viral, the fans and the public are heated up, and it is completely justified. In the video, it can clearly be seen that HSY noticed what Ilyas had done and got uncomfortable with it, and quickly told her to move to the next personality. People are disappointed and infuriated that Amna Ilyas, who has been talking about positivity, is a hypocrite. She recently made an awareness video about colorism and body-shaming, and well, she faced some real backlash. People told her to stop addressing these issues if she cannot implement what she says.
Here’s what people had to say:
Not only this, but Amna Haq herself also responded to the model’s comment.
Amna Ilyas comments aside, Amna Haq was a famous model of her time. Disrespecting someone like this cannot be justified or normalized, and we hope Ilyas realizes this.
