- Social media slams Shahveer Jafry for making fun of domestic violence
- The influencer made a TikTok video in which he attempts to smother his wife
Popular influencer Shahveer Jafry is in hot waters for his latest video in which he is seen trying to smother his wife. While the content was supposed to be lighthearted and for laughs, it is high-time influencers realize that not everything is a joke.
Be it someone’s weight, colour, or a topic extremely serious as domestic violence, it is NOT permissible to make fun of victims who have lost or have been close to losing their lives through such incidents.
Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects millions of people around the world. It is a form of abuse that can have devastating physical, emotional, and psychological effects on the victim, their children, and even their pets.
Unfortunately, some individuals in society do not take this issue seriously and may make fun of it in comical skits. This is not okay and can have damaging consequences for those who have experienced domestic violence.

Domestic violence is a real problem that affects people of all ages, races, and genders. It is not something that should ever be made light of, as it can cause significant harm to those who have experienced it.
Making fun of domestic violence in comical skits sends the message that this issue is not serious and that it is acceptable to make light of the suffering of others. This can be incredibly hurtful to those who have experienced domestic violence, as it undermines their experiences and can make them feel as though their pain is not valid.
Social Media Slams Shahveer Jafry
Here’s how social media responded to the video:
‘ha ha ha So funny to pretend to strangle my wife. Sadly, this is one of the most common ways women are killed by their family members, including husbands and ex/current romantic partners.’ Writes Hera Hussain.

‘All the people coming after the tweets, you haven’t been through the kind of domestic violence shown in the video. Just take a moment and “think” how would the victims of such violence if they were Shahveer’s fans and were watching this video would feel. Tang asal mai ap log ara rahy hain, wrna smjhdar ko ishara kafi hota.’ Wrote an Instagram user.
While others asked netizens to calm down and ‘learn how to take a joke’.
Everything isn't violence. Criticism doesn't work everytime.
Just relax Kanwal everyone has life and their own patterns. You can't rank everything in violence. People can differentiate between joke and violence.
Let them live their life as they want.
