“So what I am darker than my husband?” says Ankita
Social media gives us a window to speak our minds but some people cross the line while expressing themselves.
Ankita Bhargava, who was recently in Indonesia with her husband Karan Patel fell prey to shadeism for her recent social media post.
The lady lashed out against the haters who trolled her online for being darker than her husband.
“I am not shallow enough to have a complex about my complexion. I am fairer and darker, both at the same time than most of my friends and colleagues from the industry. As for Karan being fairer, how does that matter? We are not ruled by the British anymore, we are brown, that’s what we are. Being not so fair by your standards does not make me a lesser person. I am still a decent wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend in my opinion and I am trying to get better with each passing day, learning and growing,”
Karan Patel’s followers from his fan pages also stood by her and reposted the comment.
Well said Ankita!
