Entrepreneur Rohini Iyer has never shied away from giving her opinion. She recently used her official Instagram handle to call out the influencers and actors vacationing in exotic locations like the Maldives and Goa as COVID-19 cases in the country continue to rise.
She wrote, “For anyone vacationing in Maldives and Goa and exotic areas, remember, this is a vacation for you. It’s a bloody pandemic everywhere. So don’t be an insensitive idiot and post pictures of your privileged life. This is not the time to start growing your Instagram numbers. This is the time to come out and help, or if there is nothing you can do then shut up and stay home! Or stay calm in your holiday home .. masked. No photos. This is not a calendar time for Fashion Week or the Kingfisher! “
Writer Shobhaa De showed her support for Rohini’s message by reposting her story on Instagram too. She labeled the post “Hello !!! Listen! Loved this post which was passionately articulated by Rohini Iyer. Wanted to share it here and I’m not good with techno stuff – repost etc. Okay? The idea is to get your message across. Well said @rohiniiyer. It is the height of vulgarity to flaunt these ridiculous images. Definitely enjoy the Maldives. You are blessed to get such a break in these bleak times. But do everyone a favor … keep it It privately. “
This strong message from Rohini immediately went viral on all social media platforms. Fans expressed their support by posting the story on their official handles.
