“We’re entertainers, Not fact-checkers. Why are actors crucified for having an opinion about the important matters pertaining to the world? We are humans too and We make mistakes too. But canceling us for speaking out or not speaking out aloud on each & every topic is a bit unfair, don’t you think? Let us stick to what we do best .. making you fall in love with our performances ❤️ #whatdidshesay is a fun way to speak your mind .. what’s on your mind ? #reelit” read the caption of her post.
