For celebrities, social media has its own pros and cons. While social networking sites help them in promotions and increasing their fan following, they also subject celebs to online trolling. As social media is a free space, anyone can spew venoms anywhere. Recently, Divyanka Tripathi got brutally trolled by an Instagram page, which goes by the name Diet Sabya, for wearing a maxi dress' belt. Divyanka wore an off-white and golden dress along with statement earrings and a classy golden belt.

A simple dress can enhance your elegance and classy accessories can lift up the look. Just plan how you want to look for the event and work your way around it. Outfits @raisin.global Make up hair @manoj.regina Earings n belt @rimayu07 Styled @stylingbyvictor Assisted by @mughalsohail_ #TipOfTheDay
The Instagram handle, which is known for mocking copied designs, mentioned that the belt is a rip-off of popular designer Sabyasachi Mukherji’s iconic Royal Bengal Tiger belt. The page shared a collage and wrote, ''#Guts On A Sunday afternoon!! ......Y’all will often tell us not to blame the celebrity, but you’ve to live under a giant rock to not know that this is an iconic @sabyasachiofficial belt. NO excuses!!.”
While there were some who started criticising the TV actress for this 'fashion crime', others slammed the page for using harsh words against the actress and that too unnecessarily. However, Divyanka is not among those who remain mum and ignore such negativity on social media. She stood up and spoke and we couldn't be happier. Even producer Ekta Kapoor hit back at Diet Sabya and wrote, ''When u ur self r a rip off but get off on stalking n catching ripoffs. The irony is more amusing than the page itself wat say''.
Divyanka took to Instagram to share a comment from one of her followers, who was amongst one who supported her amidst this chaos of trolling. Sharing the screenshot, she wrote, ''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)''.

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 😁
