“Some influencers/celebs bend over backwards to get views and likes. What they forget is that they are passing a false, unethical message to the younger generations, who are naïve and mostly follow them blindly.”
Calling the development “scary and an inappropriate use of leverage,” the actress said, “It’s disheartening to see morality, integrity and wisdom taking a back seat in this process.”
Sada urged influencers to encourage their followers to become more empathetic people, saying: “In a world where you can be anything and choose to become an influencer, at least influence your followers to be a better and to become an empathetic person.

The star has caused a stir with a series of events centered around the film’s trailers and teasers.
