Fashion designer and actress Masaba Gupta has slammed former Pakistan cricket captain Ramiz Raja for laughing at a racist joke about her parents, cricket legend Vivian Richards and veteran actor Neena Gupta. The incident occurred during a Pakistani TV show, where a comedian made a derogatory remark about the couple’s interracial relationship. Raja, who was present in the audience, was seen laughing at the joke.
Gupta took to social media to express her outrage, calling Raja “graceless” and urging him to “step into the future.” She also stated that her parents and herself have “grace in spades,” while Raja has none.
Raja has not yet responded to Gupta’s criticism. However, many social media users have voiced their support for Gupta, condemning Raja’s behavior and calling for him to apologize.
This incident has sparked a conversation about racism and its prevalence in society. It is important to remember that racism is unacceptable and should not be tolerated under any circumstances.
