In the 21st century, we’ve surrounded ourselves with technology. We can’t live without it but we haven’t fully understood the widespread implications of using it either. While normal folk like us with 10 followers on our profiles can get away with stupid actions, celebrities have to be wary about they’re doing. And with over a million followers on her social media handles, Sara Khan learnt that lesson the hard way.
According to the International Business Times, Sara Khan was on a holiday with her sister, Ayra Khan when she accidentally uploaded a nude video of her.
The incident occurred over Sara Khan’s sister, Ayra’s Instagram story. The video showed Sara sans her clothes and enjoying herself in a bathtub. Considering how she was absolutely nude, Ayra deleted it off of her Instagram. But it was too late.
By the time Ayra decided to remove the video, it was already downloaded by thousands of viewers across the internet. In addition to that, people began to abuse them for posting such objectionable videos of themselves so blatantly.
As people were confused about whether the whole thing was intentional, a hack or a publicity stunt, Sara Khan came up with a statement defending the whole ordeal.
“I don’t know what happened. Everything just went wrong. It was a video out of fun made by my sister. She deleted it in no time but it went terribly wrong. She was drunk little bit and then we were just having fun, and this thing happened. I just want to say that since the world has become so fast, sometimes these technologies are also harmful. So, we should be careful.”
Although Sara and Ayra Khan are aware of the content of the video, they’ve called out the people who’ve abused them on Instagram Live. In addition to that, Ayra has taken a stand by putting up a photo of herself in a bathtub.
Due to the advent of social media, celebrities and their fans share a very close bond. That’s why it’s their primary priority to maintain their public image and not ward off their fan-base. So, it’s quite relieving to see that Sara Khan has accepted her mistakes and taken a stand against her haters in one striking blow.
