Shilpa Shetty has never shied away from speaking her mind. In fact, during her stint on Celebrity Big Brother 5, in 2007, she was quite vocal when she felt that her fellow housemates were making racist remarks against her. She went on to win the show eventually and those involved in passing snide remarks against her, had to pay the price in the form of no endorsements and also, later, apologise to her. Well, the world had applauded her then and the world is taking note of her again now, when she is making a point about the racism she faced at an airport.
Shilpa took to her Instagram to share an account of a racist incident. Shilpa was travelling from Sydney to Melbourne when, at the check in counter of the airlines she was flying in, she faced what she termed to be racism. According to her, the employee behaved difficult with her because she was brown. Check out the whole post here:
Well, while Shilpa did get to catch the flight that she was supposed to take, the hassle was surely completely uncalled for. And if it indeed was a case of a racist approach then we hope, for everyone's sake, that action is taken against the person concerned. After all, no one should be discriminated upon.
At a time when the world is becoming smaller by the day, thanks to technology, and the borders are diminishing, with everyone being able to communicate with everyone, such a myopic view of things is certainly a deterrent to the larger picture.
