While Pakistanis are often seen coming out in support of their favourite celebrities, this time around, they are extremely disappointed in most of them.
As Pakistan continues to drown as a result of the monsoon rains, some of our beloved celebrities are having the time of their lives in Canada preparing for the grand scale event – HUM Awards 2022.
Netizens are outraged as to how these celebrities, instead of helping the 1/3 of the country’s population who has suffered, are enjoying carrying out activities such as kayaking, bungee jumping, and shopping.

As a response, the trend #BoycottHumAwards started to pick up.
