KARACHI (Ahem News) – Pakistani actress Ushna Shah has apologized over her tweet on pizza delivery boy.
The actress posted a video on Instagram, admitting that her tweets were tone deaf and could be easily misunderstood by anyone.
“Because I was a girl holding the dog, he was not trusting my strength. I was encouraging the delivery boy to come and put pizza on the table, constantly telling him that I am holding the dog,” she explained.
“But that did not work, so I jokingly told him ‘come on show some masculinity’ and because I know my patriarchal society, that kid enthusiastically came forward and kept the pizza on the table,” she added.
“I admit that I did use the patriarchy card which was a flaw of mine, it worked but I did not like that I had to use it to instill courage into the boy,” she said.
“I do not bully people and I sure as heck don’t tolerate being bullied. Enough,” her caption along with the video stated.
It is to be mentioned here that Ushna Shah landed in trouble after her ‘demeaning’ and ‘sexist’ remarks to a pizza delivery guy at 2:30 a.m sparked outrage on social networking website Twitter.
On a Twitter post, the actress wrote, “Mard banein, aap ek chaar saal ki bachi nahee hai, mardaangi peida karein.” (Be a man. You are not a four-year-old girl. Try to be manly).
She stated that the pizza delivery boy was scared of her growling pitbull dog which she was holding back.
