Some weren’t surprised at the outrage:
The reason Pakistanis are obsessed with Turkish people is because they combine two of their biggest fetishes i.e white people and a rich islamic history and culture. Its normal to see them lose their shit when their ultimate fantasy doesn't conform to their expectations https://t.co/fe51Obru8d

i will never not find it fascinating that men seek out women on their social media hoping to see more of them and then get angry when they do. https://t.co/cENm7a4rRL

Ooof, the shade!
Y’all we truly don’t appreciate Pakistani men. They’ve forgotten about their own akhirat just to remind every single Muslim woman of hers. 🥺 Mard bari pyaari cheez hai, truly. https://t.co/8B16z2hXwT

Apparently p*ki men don't know that actors on their telly screens are playing a role and not Halima Sultan or whatever IRL

State of Pakistan should officially extend an apology to her. https://t.co/52tLzfteEw
