This comedian had to leave social media after her skit on Sindhis was bashed. It shouldn’t be this way

When Natalia Gul Jilani, a dentist by day and stand-up comedian by night, poked fun at Sindhis (being one herself) it ignited some serious outrage — online and offline. This is why we can’t have nice things, people.

 

What followed after were death threats and hate speech, which she says was a first for her in the two years she’s been doing stand-up: “As a Sindhi, I’ve drawn on my experiences for skits often and I’ve never faced such backlash with any real audience. Even in the video, you can see people in the crowd were enjoying it,” shared Natalia.
