Rapper, comedian, Ali Gul Pir, who doesn’t shy away from wrapping a head scarf or wearing a pink dress to mimic any meme-worthy content online, has taken to Twitter to reassure trolls that his masculinity cannot be defined by them, nor can his content.
After sharing a recreation of Lili Reinhart’s Met Gala look, many admired his low-budget transformation. But the moral brigade, threatened by a man in a pink dress with loofahs attached, wasn’t amused and came out to ‘cancel’ his ‘fahash’ (vulgar) portrayal.
Several are now arguing whether Pir’s content is even funny. "I never judge anyone except those who find Ali Gul Pir funny," tweeted a user. “Ali Gul Pir: Wo to bs Begairat hai But me usy Barra Begairat hun (She is shameless, but I am more shameless),” added another sharing Pir’s transformation. “Life was going somewhat good till I saw this tweet,” tweeted one more. “Heard Ali Gul Pir was not able to attend the court hearing because he couldn't find his dupatta,” chimed in another. A user even tweeted, “I think Ali Gul Pir just walks around with a wig and dupatta in his car because kia pata kab kisi viral video se sasti kamayi karni par jaye (you never know when you might need to cash in on a viral video).”
Now, Pir has responded to the hate online. “I will wear what I want to, make want I want to and say what I want to,” he tweeted, unapologetically. “Nobody will define my masculinity or dictate my creativity. Don’t hate me because I make you feel insecure,” asserted the celebrity.

Some had even sparked a discussion about his legs. “When you realise Ali Gul Pir has more shapely and hairless legs than you,” a netizen pointed out casually. Another commented beneath his post, “wohoo, the shaved legs.” To this, Pir replied, “Legs are naturally not hairy. Every desi man isn’t hairy.”

Several, however, are still rallying in support of Pir's effortless humour, impressions and confidence. "Real men wear pink :)," tweeted Norbert Almeida. "Now why do you guys hate Ali Gul Pir?" asked another. "Let the man drape a dupatta and do mimicry, kya masla hai (what is the problem)," they urged and we agree.
