Is this inequality? But of course! But this is also a world where swank-architecture and high-fashion magazines exist when there are people who don’t have homes and who wear rags.

I wanted to talk about this when Farah Khan pulled up celebrities for sharing their workout videos. She said something to the effect of: “I can understand that you all are privileged and you don’t have any other worries in this global pandemic except for looking after your figures.” I was thinking: Sure, Farah! If you don’t want to watch these videos, fine. But if other people are interested in just gawking, or if they are perhaps getting motivated to work out at home, then… But more recently, there’s this video that’s been doing the rounds. Australian comedian Greta Lee Jackson and a bunch of others mock celebrities for putting up what they probably see as tone-deaf posts about their privileged lifestyles. Karan Johar, who’s more privileged than most, immediately put out an apology: “This hit me hard and I have realised many of my posts may have been insensitive to many…I apologise profusely and wish to add none of it was intentional and came from a place of sharing but clearly may have lacked emotional foresight.”
