These days, celebrities get trolled for almost everything they do, right from the kind of clothes they wear to the choices they make - some choose respond while others ignore.
This time, one of the television's most popular actresses, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya got trolled for an accessory she wore. The 'fashion plagiarism police' of Instagram 'Diet Sabya' pointed out that Divyanka had copied a maxi dress belt. The belt used by her stylist, Victor Robinson was by the brand Rimayu. But it was allegedly copied from popular designer Sabyasachi Mukherji’s iconic belt bearing the ‘Bengal Tiger’ symbol. Here is the post -
Divyanka's friend Ekta Kapoor, came in support of the actress. Ekta gave quite a fitting reply to 'Diet Sabya'. She hit back by showing how its logo is copied by some other account. Ekta wrote, "When u urself r a rip-off but get off on stalking n catching ripoffs. The irony is more amusing than the page itself wat say." Check out the post below:

Not just Ekta Kapoor but Divyanka found support from some other users as well, one of who gave a long reply to Diet Sabya which was resposted by the actress with an explanation of her own.
This is the user's response.
Take a look at what Divyanka then said...

Sorry guys! I truly wanted to forget yesterday's episode when I was slammed and humiliated (by an insta profile and it's followers) for wearing a belt slightly similar to a branded piece (which I was ofcourse unaware of). But this comment!!!!!! I just couldn't resist putting up your comment on my post! MORE POWER TO YOU GIRL. YOU VERBALISED WHAT I WAS THINKING. EVEN I COME FROM A HUMBLE BACKGROUND! MAKING MOCKERY OF PEOPLE FOR THEIR DRESSING, IS SUCH AN ARROGANT AND HIGH-HANDED, HIGH SCHOOL SNOB ATTITUDE! THANK GOD, THIS HAPPENED WITH ME! ELSE, I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN THIS SIDE OF BULLYING WORLD. FEW MAY FEEL EMBARASSED AND KEEP SHUT...BUT I PREFER CALLING A SPADE A SPADE AND BULLYING- BULLYING! NOPE, I AM NOT A REGULAR CELEBRITY! I AM DIFFERENT BECAUSE "I AM NO DIFFERENT FROM PEOPLE WATCHING ME" & GETTING BULLDOZED FOR MY CLOTHING...WELL, NOT ACCEPTABLE! This happened to me and I felt so pressurised suddenly, felt like digging a hole and burrying my face. Imagine this happening with people who can't afford great dresses and designs, let alone a stylist or designer. In fact, NOT ALL CELEBRITIES AND STARS ARE RICH in contrast to a common expectation. Few become stars because of their QUALITY OF WORK and NOT WHAT THEY WEAR and HOW MUCH THEY EARN or FOR THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF FASHION WORLD! Everybody has a different forté! Bullying and belittling someone for that is SO DISHONORABLE, MEAN and VAIN! . (PS : I could be right or wrong but at least I don't keep shut when being humiliated! It's a lesson for my readers- "Speak up for yourself when oppressors think they are the bosses!") Aaahh!! Bol ke kaleje ko thandak mil gai
Last week, 'Diet Sabya' recently called out the label Purple Paisley for passing off Balmain’s sequined dress as their own. The actress wore the outfit for Cosmopolitan India’s cover shoot.
