Bigg Boss 11: Arshi Khan’s comment on skin tan upsets Hina Khan’s fans but we don’t know why

Arshi Khan was not at fault this time

A new video of Bigg Boss 11 has got TV actress Hina Khan‘s fans really angry. The 39 second clip sees Arshi Khan and Shilpa Shinde talk about the tan their fellow contestants got after spending some time in the pool. But for some reason people mistook it to be an episode of racism. We do not exactly blame them because the house has been a witness to fat shaming and slut shaming earlier.

Also, everyone knows that Arshi Khan and Shilpa Shinde have ganged up against Hina Khan. The two are always seen bitching about her. A few days ago they called the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress, ‘Low Class.’ So it was quite easy for Hina’s fans to jump to the conclusion that Arshi passed a racist comment on Hina.

Check out the fans’ tweets –

However in reality, Arshi didn’t even mention Hina’s name. As can be seen in the video, she was just casually talking about the tan people had got after swimming and Hina assumed that it was targeted at her. We agree that Shilpa took the conversation a little too far by saying ‘Pehle se kaale log kaise kaale ho saktey hai? ‘, but for once Arshi wasn’t at fault.

Here’s the exact conversation that took place between Arshi, Shilpa, Hina and Akash Dadlani. Don’t miss Hina’s statement at 0:05.

Arshi: Arey in logo ke colour ko kya hogaya? Kaale pad gaye yeh log toh!

Hina Khan: Hum toh pehle se hi kaale hai

Shilpa Shinde: Pehle se kaale log kaise kaale ho saktey hai?

Akash: Nahi start kar.

Arshi: Aye, udhar kaala hua hai, zyada paagal ho raha hai kya? Tu kya bol raha hai, tumne bhi toh Vikas ko bola.

Akash: Oye start karna hai toh bol.

Arshi: Kya start karna hai? Tumne bhi toh bola na Vikas ko colour down ho raha hai?

Shilpa: Aur start tum karoge kya humesha?

Arshi: Yeh dhamka raha hai kya? Uska colour hua dark toh kya bole? Nahi matlab Hina ke taraf gaya toh tumhe kyu buraa laga? 

We are not denying the possibility of Arshi‘s comment being targeted towards Hina but even then it we cannot accuse her of passing a racist comment on her as she was not talking about Hina’s original skin tone.
