Ahmed Ali Butt is one of the most sought after entertainers of the Pakistani industry and recently he landed himself in hot water during the Lux Style Awards for an act that he carried out.

However, during the 15th Lux Style Awards, Ahmed while hosting a fun segment, called out on Jeena (Ayesha Rao Khan), a character from Mann Mayal who persistently seeks sympathy during the show. The character of Jeena‘s parents was played by two dwarf actors on stage.

Many strongly felt that Ahmed was disrespectful towards the dwarf community and made fun of them. However, Ahmed took to social media and slammed those offended by the act.

The former EP band member expressed how the segment was drafted only to make fun of Jeena’s character and there was no joke directed towards his fellow dwarf actors.

He also clarified that those actors are professionals and if none of the onstage performers got offended then the problem lies within one’s perception.

Ahmed closed his note by saying that if you genuinely feel ‘offended’ by something then you should work towards helping them rather than merely sympathising.
