Hania Amir responds to overwhelming backlash in hopes of inspiring others regarding beauty standards

Earlier this week Hania Amir was seen using a beauty filter on her Instagram account - which sparked an endless trail of anger and backlash about her use of the filter. More recently, the talented star posted a video to her Instagram, in hopes of positively tackling the discussion of using filters and the hamartia of unrealistic beauty expectations as seen on social media, online and on television.

After receiving prior backlash regarding voicing her concerns about these topics, Hania emphasised, “That’s not the point,” she clarified. “When people talk irresponsibly about such a sensitive topic, it defeats the purpose of the conversation that I’m trying to have,” repeated Hania.

“The purpose of mine is to teach people that you should own your skin and own yourself. The point is being comfortable with who you are, doing things because you want to do them, not doing things because of the beauty standards that are set”, says Hania.

Hania propelled an empowering message of choice, emphasising that she should be free to use her filters as she likes - but it should never be imposed upon her or anybody else. She added, 'you do you, boo', ending the video on a positive note.
