It seems Yasir Hussain really didn’t learn anything from the last blunder pertaining to his crass comments regarding the transgender community.
In a recent occurrence, the Naach Naa Jaanay actor made a mindless comment on fellow colleague Hania Aamir who spoke up about her struggle with acne and anxiety in a brave post.

So I have always struggled with mild acne. Always had these bumps on my forehead that JUST WOULD NOT BUDGE! I had gotten used to them. But the journey I have been on for a couple of months has been quite a painful one. I’d just come back to chitral from a day trip to kalash and after I had washed my face it started to burn and my skin went red. Didn’t take it seriously but the next day I had these tiny red bumps ALL OVER MY FACE.I freaked out but didn’t let it get the best of me because I was at work. They would show on camera, everybody started to ask me, started with the totkas and then came the anxiety.. khair when I got back they kind of calmed down.My skin looked clearer than before. But some three months back it started to act up again and it was even worse this time! I kept it clean,toner,creams,dermatologists,everything! Nothing seemed to fix my skin and I had my night AND days of crying. Feeling insecure. Anxiety. Makeup wouldn’t help. I was a mess but I went through it and got out of it too. I went to a different doctor and he prescribed me some meds. My skin has been better than before. But it made me wonder.. Why is my skin defining me? Who has made these beauty standards that we always feel the need to match? The society? Clear skin is beauty? I know that the idea of being “perfect” is appealing to majority but you don’t need to be an airbrushed flawless image to feel beautiful. Nobody should feel the pressure of matching the ridiculous societal beauty standards.Have your own.Beauty is within and anybody who makes you feel small because of what you LOOK like shouldn’t be around you! To all the brothers and sisters out there! Being a celebrity does not mean perfection; it only means we have chosen a profession that makes us and our lives public but certainly not that we do not go through issues in life; Every individual has their own. Perfection is not what we should be seeking, being comfortable in our own skin is the key. This is my skin at the moment. Better than before but still not quite okay. But till I tackle it am I gonna hide myself from the world? Shy away from people? No. Yes I am struggling but my skin DOES NOT define me. 🙏🏽
During a Q&A with the fans, Hussain took to Instagram to respond when a fan asked him to share his thoughts about the Anaa star.
“Danedaar,” Hussain wrote, all the while tagging Aamir in the post.
Yasir’s attempt at humor didn’t really amuse Hania as such.The Parwaaz Hai Junoon star then took to Instagram to share her two cents on the matter, saying that “Degrading is not funny. I’m not laughing. Nobody is.”
Amidst all of this, a number of celebrities have come forward to support Hania. Here is what they have to say:
Asim Azhar expresses his pride and applauds Hania Amir for promoting the message of self-love and encouraging others to love and accept their flaws.
Mahira Khan supports Hania’s effort to normalize imperfections and stands with her in speaking up against insensitive jokes about the matter.
Zara Noor Abbas took to Instagram to stand with Hania.
A number of other celebrities from the industry such as Saba Qamar, Saira Shahroz and Meesha Shafi, also commented under Hania’s post, showing immense kindness and support.
