Actor Sara Ali Khan was trolled by a section of social media users after she advocated that “All Lives Matter” instead of #BlackLivesMatter on her official Instagram page.
In her post, the word “Black” was replaced “All” thus turning the statement “Black Lives Matter” into “All Lives Matter”.
The poster also contained three hands with varying skin colours of white, brown and black along with an elephant trunk to pay a tribute to the pregnant elephant killed in Kerala.
Following the backlash Sara though decided to delete her post.
The #BlackLivesMatter movement recently intensified after the death of African-American George Floyd amid police brutality allegations.
Various Bollywood stars have come out in support of the movement which led actor Kangana Ranaut to question their silence on incidents back home like the brutal lynching of Sadhus in Palghar.
