Actor Abhay Deol recently created a stir on the internet when the actor roasted his fellow actors who are promoting fairness creams on his Facebook wall. Abhay posted a few posts on his Facebook which showed the posters of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and many others promoting various fairness cream brands.
Abhay's posts came right after few days when BJP parliamentarian Tarun Vijay's remarks on South Indians which created much hype on the social media as well. His opening post reads, "There's a lot more of these campaigns that are blatantly, and sometimes subtly, selling you the idea that whiter skin is better than darker skin. No one at the top of their game in any field is going to tell you that it is demeaning, false, and racist. You have to see that for yourself. You have to stop buying into the idea that a particular shade is better than others. Unfortunately if you look at matrimonial ads you will see how entrenched in our psyche this belief is. We even use the word 'dusk' to describe the colour of someones skin!
While an individual may not be able to change this attitude in his/her community, he/she can at least start with the family."
His posts received overwhelming response and comments started flooding after every post of his in the number of thousands.
