Pakistani actress Ushna Shah was recently seen in a bind after posting a mean comment which according to people was “demeaning” and “sexist” regarding a pizza delivery guy who came to her house at 2.30 PM to deliver pizza. After the whole fiasco on social media, she has come forward to clarify the dispute that was getting out of control like wildfire.
Shah used her Instagram account to clear the misunderstanding that created confusion among netizens and resulted in some misapprehended responses on the internet. In the video, she acknowledged that her tweet about the incident was misheard and misread and that this was not what she wanted to communicate and that they were to be taken in a lighter context.
She said, “Because I was a girl holding the dog, he wasn’t trusting my strength. I was encouraging him to come and put it on the table, constantly telling him that I am holding the dog.” She then explained further saying, “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 came to her defense further elaborating on the whole issue and remarked “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. I had posted that tweet just to start a discussion around masculinity.
