Internet can be a vicious place sometimes. You never know when your single post becomes a fodder of social media trolls. There isn’t a way to express yourself on social media without offending someone. What Divyanka Tripathi did was just sharing her recent ‘Haryanvi’ avatar from her TV serial Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. But little did she know that a simple picture of hers can offend her fans to such an extent. The actress got trolled for turning a couple of shades darker for her role. The trolls even called Divyanka Tripathi pathetic and disgusting for changing her skin colour. The actress who knows how to treat these trolls very well gave a befitting reply to them.
One user wrote: That’s pathetic of you to do a black face for a tv serial. Being dark is not a bad thing and this is really disgusting of you to do.
To this, Divyanka Tripathi replied, “If I chose to be dark... how is it pathetic? Do you find it pathetic? You guys don’t even think before bashing. Which Indian actor will voluntarily choose to look dark on screen? It’s not usual”
The troll responded, “Black facing yourself for the sake of a TV serial track is pathetic. You didn’t lighten your makeup when you were pretending to be a foreigner in the serial. Why did you darken yourself to become a maid? Exactly. Double standards.
Divyanka Tripathi gave her back saying, “Know me first before judging I’m doing that make up myself! Everyday! So please.. watch the track, understand and respect instead of writing baseless provocative comments.”

Divyanka Tripathi is one of the calmest actresses on social media. She chooses to be dignified always and even responds to her fans’ comments. But when there is absolutely nothing wrong with her look and a user started pointing finger at her, she couldn’t contain herself any longer.
