Osman Khalid Butt brilliantly slammed an online troll

What a comeback!

We all know that the Internet can be a mean place. From rude comments to outright insults, internet trolls are everywhere, and they don’t hesitate to share their hurtful comments. However, some of us don’t let them dim our light because we set them straight. Even some of our most favourite A-listers have shut down some of the meanest and the most outrageous trolls. Osman Khalid Butt is one such actor whose regular witty shutdowns of trolls are a big source of entertainment for us. A few days back, Zahid Ahmed, during an interview with a publication said that, “Pakistani channels have set policies according to which actors are allowed to slap women on TV but we cannot show intimacy.” This caught Osman’s attention and he replied to Zahid’s statement saying, “Strange indeed”. However, one troll reacted to his reply saying, “Just a pathetic excuse to get physical with female actors. Not to mention the influence it has on society and especially the young children and young teens.” To this, Osman replied brilliantly by saying, “Yeah so reactions like this are wholly predictable. First off: intimacy is not just mating. Secondly, I’d rather my child see a healthy, intimate relationship between fictional spouses than, you know, PHYSICAL ABUSE being normalised. The nerve to talk ‘influence’.” This succinct reply to the troll probably deserves to be in the Hall of Fame for Troll Shutdowns.
