When it comes to Tiktok stars, Pakistanis have a love-hate relationship with them, some love to hate them and some really love them, adding millions of views to their content, while some don’t even consider them worthy of being called a star!
Revealing the details of his new project, Asim Azhar shared a BTS picture featuring Tiktok star Areeka Haq who has 5.3M fans on Tiktok alone:
Areeka, too, shared a picture:
The pictures were met with vile criticism from the haters:
pakistan is full of talented people but you just chose tiktok to work with, @AsimAzharr you deserve more than that, disappointed

Many had their reservations as they felt undermined:
What type of talent you just called it ? Doing sasta mujra on tiktok made you famous ? Wbt those who suffered alot in achieving their goals , works hard with lack of confidence you should support them & collabrate with them instead of these useless tiktokers.

Some weren’t sure why Areeka was getting so much hate:
I don't get the hate Areeqa Haq gets. She's just a normal teenager doing what she loves without harming any race, culture or human ya'll nitpicking ery other thing now
