Why Are People Hating On Babil Khan For Being A Nice Person & Kind Towards A Woman?

Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t.

This is the reality of social media nowadays. A classic example of this is two recent events – one, where Rajkummar Rao was criticised for getting chin fillers and two, where UP boards topper Prachi Nigam was incessantly trolled for not removing her facial hair and ‘grooming’ herself. There is no winning on social media. Our world has become so cynical that toxicity, despite being advocated against, has become normalized that we tend to mistrust a person who is genuinely kind.

Another example of this is Babil Khan, who was at an event for Tiffany & Co. and apologised to a woman wholeheartedly for mistakenly blocking her from the paparazzi.

While the paparazzi were taking her pictures, Babil mistakenly came in front of her and when he realised, he profusely apologised and moved aside for her to carry on with the photoshoot.

Here’s a look at the video:

However, a section of people started trolling him for…basically being nice. It makes no sense! What Babil did is what any decent person would do. But people are calling it “overacting” and comparing him to “manipulative gaslighting men” saying that his ‘niceness’ is a “performance”. Have a look:

On the other hand, there were plenty who came to his support, especially journalists who have interviewed Babil Khan and can vouch for the fact that he is, in fact, a decent and well-raised man with such niceness coming naturally to him. Have a look:

What has the world come down to, where such a small act of kindness is also seen with cynical eyes?
