Deepika Padukone faces backlash because of a TikTok video

Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak has failed to make a mark at the box office. The movie is a biopic on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal and to promote the film a few days ago, Deepika joined TikTok.

Well, as one of the promotional activities she teamed up with a makeup artist on TikTok and told her to recreate her looks from Om Shanti Om, Piku and Chhapaak. Well, this has not gone down well with the people on social media as they are upset that how can Deepika tell someone to recreate the look of an acid attack victim.

A user tweeted, “And just when we thought that @deepikapadukone couldn’t mock Lakshmi anymore through her PR stunts in JNU she comes up with tick tok challenge on acid attack victims. Gross.”

Another user tweeted, “So “Acid Attacked Face” has now become challenge now. This is the worst kind of a promotion by @deepikapadukone. Shame on you.”

One more user posted, “The problem with Deepika Padukone endorsing a makeup challenge on Chhapak is that she treated it as one of her “looks” and dismissed the entire trauma behind it. She proved that it was merely makeup for her & she clearly doesn’t understand the depth of what survivors go through.”

Well, the video has been taken down from TikTok, but it has gone viral on social media. We wonder what Deepika has to say about the whole scenario.

Before Chhapaak released, the film had made it to the headlines as Deepika visited JNU to be a part of the protest. A lot of people had started tweeting #BoycottChhapaak. And now, post-release, the actress is facing this backlash on social media.
