We all know how social media works. It doesn’t even take a minute at times to go viral. At times, it takes a bit longer.
However, a lot of times, important issues are discussed on social media platforms.
Over the past few days, the Lahore motorway gang rape had become the talk of the town. But, it was not the only incident to have occurred.
5-year-old Marwah was kidnapped when she stepped out to buy candy from a local shop. She went missing for two days before police recovered her body, reportedly stuffed in a bag and disposed of.
Story Behind #BanNidaYasir
So, what does this have to do with Nida Yasir?
Yasir is a television show host. She invites guests on her show to interact with them for entertainment purposes. This time around, the parents of 5-YO Marwah had been invited.
As we’ve seen before in many shows, the family members of a victim are often asked uncomfortable questions. Children are asked if they knew what happened to their deceased parents; parents are asked about the death of their child.
To gain some ratings and TRP, the family members are put through hell, which is undoubtedly extremely unethical. Yasir, on her show, had also followed this pattern of placing the victim’s parents in the spotlight by asking them difficult questions in regards to their daughter’s death.
Social Media Fumes Over Nida Yasir’s Insensitive Questions
Here’s how social media reacted to the episode:

All the morning shows and game shows should be banned. These are just to make fun of poor people, spread vulgarity and moreover 50% domestic disagreements come from these shows.#BanNidaYasir pic.twitter.com/ati7EId4lX

Unfortunately, this is not the first time when the hostess was called out for her insensitive question and behavior on TV. Yet, even though the public has criticized this morning show culture, it seems that it has changed as it continues.
Earlier, Nida and her husband were accused of faking their Coronavirus results to take advantage of the situation.
“My Instagram, my messenger are filled with so many affectionate messages and prayers from everyone. So many from the entertainment industry called in to ask about our health,” she revealed.
“But many hurt me as well. There were few who said that we had been paid by the government or that it was all a facade. There were few who said, ‘They used to come to work every day! Acha Hua’.” She added.
In 2019, Yasir was bashed for excessively bragging about shopping. She pointed out her items one by one and talked about the money spent on those items.
There's a clip from Nida Yasir's talk show doing rounds on Facebook in which she's showing all the clothes, shoes and bags she bought on a vacation recently, to an audience that cannot dream of even affording a single item on her list. Who's going to school her about this?

I cringed so hard I feared my teeth would break after watching Nida Yasir showing off her shopping on TV.
