Pakistan’s first-ever Ken Doll aka Adnan Zafar has found himself in hot waters for calling out and labelling moms.
In a recent video posted by the influencer, Zafar shared his two cents about the nature of upbringing offered by mothers nowadays.
Known to be controversial, Adnan Zafar has faced significant online criticism due to his latest video addressing a concerning trend among modern mothers.
Adnan Zafar has expressed his reservations about the growing practice of mothers creating social media accounts for their young children and actively using those accounts to engage with others.
Adnan Zafar firmly believes that such accounts are unnecessary, and the time spent by mothers interacting through their children’s social media platforms should instead be dedicated to their children’s upbringing and development.
In his video, Adnan Zafar has chosen to be ‘brutally honest’, even going so far as to describe mothers who engage in this practice, which he does not endorse, as “mentally unstable.”

Social Media Reacts to Adnan Zafar
Here’s how social media reacted to the video:
Adnan Zafar, who bears a striking resemblance to the androgynous charm of David Bowie during the “loving the alien” era, possesses a unique allure with his elf-like features and captivating attire.
Hailing from Faisalabad but currently residing in Dubai, this lifestyle influencer labels himself a “Human Ken doll,” drawing inspiration from the famous male fashion doll created by Mattel in 1961 as a counterpart to Barbie.
In a society where notions of male toughness typically prevail, indulging in meticulous grooming is often viewed as a departure from traditional masculinity, akin to decaffeinated coffee.
However, Zafar aims to be a catalyst for change and finds himself among a growing cadre of globally renowned male vloggers and YouTube stars such as James Charles, Patrick Starrr, and Reuben de Maid.
These individuals exemplify the transformative shifts occurring within the beauty industry and challenge the stigma surrounding makeup for men.
“At the beginning, I faced considerable backlash from the public since they were not yet prepared to accept my message: that men can engage in skincare routines,” Zafar revealed during a recent visit to Karachi, as he shared his journey. “However, what I sought to convey is that everyone should feel comfortable with themselves, as wearing makeup does not define one’s gender.”
