It’s not an easy job to be a celebrity in today’s time. With so much exposure and spot light on them all the time, even a tiny mistake or ignorance is a big deal. Television actor and influencer Divyanka Tripathi seems to be someone who doesn’t believe in keeping quiet to cyber bullying.
With the building dynamics, popularity of social media, many upcoming and relatively new brands promote it through popular celebrities. Very recently, Divyanka on her instagram shared a post wearing a simple and subtle looking attire for an event, giving a tip to her fans and followers as to how to accentuate a rather simple attire.

Little did the actress know her post will end up being publicly called out by Diet Sabya for promoting a dupe brand. Diet Sabya is a rip of Diet Prada handle that exposes imitations and copies in fashion by celebrities.
However, the not so subtle expose didn’t go down well with the actress who lashed out at the handle for perpetrating cyber bullying in the name of being a fashion-nazi.
Following which the actress was too shaken up with the onslaught of insults and derogatory comments addressed to her for wearing something that might have been inspired by luxury designer Sabyasachi designs. Ever since then, the comment sections of both have become a war zone and Divyanka has had it enough. This is what the actress had to say about the whole thing:

Sorry guys! I truly wanted to forget yesterday's episode when I was slammed and humiliated (by an insta profile and it's followers) for wearing a belt slightly similar to a branded piece (which I was ofcourse unaware of). But this comment!!!!!! I just couldn't resist putting up your comment on my post! MORE POWER TO YOU GIRL.? YOU VERBALISED WHAT I WAS THINKING. EVEN I COME FROM A HUMBLE BACKGROUND! MAKING MOCKERY OF PEOPLE FOR THEIR DRESSING, IS SUCH AN ARROGANT AND HIGH-HANDED, HIGH SCHOOL SNOB ATTITUDE! THANK GOD, THIS HAPPENED WITH ME! ELSE, I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN THIS SIDE OF BULLYING WORLD. FEW MAY FEEL EMBARASSED AND KEEP SHUT…BUT I PREFER CALLING A SPADE A SPADE AND BULLYING- BULLYING! NOPE, I AM NOT A REGULAR CELEBRITY! I AM DIFFERENT BECAUSE "I AM NO DIFFERENT FROM PEOPLE WATCHING ME" & GETTING BULLDOZED FOR MY CLOTHING…WELL, NOT ACCEPTABLE! This happened to me and I felt so pressurised suddenly, felt like digging a hole and burrying my face. Imagine this happening with people who can't afford great dresses and designs, let alone a stylist or designer. In fact, NOT ALL CELEBRITIES AND STARS ARE RICH in contrast to a common expectation. Few become stars because of their QUALITY OF WORK and NOT WHAT THEY WEAR and HOW MUCH THEY EARN or FOR THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF FASHION WORLD! Everybody has a different forté! Bullying and belittling someone for that is SO DISHONORABLE, MEAN and VAIN! . (PS : I could be right or wrong but at least I don't keep shut when being humiliated! It's a lesson for my readers- "Speak up for yourself when oppressors think they are the bosses!") Aaahh!! Bol ke kaleje ko thandak mil gai ?
