Actress Sara Ali Khan received severe backlash after she posted and later, deleted an Instagram post regarding the worldwide protests following the killing of George Floyd. 

George Floyd—an African-American—died after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes, while he pleaded that he could not breathe.

Sara shared a picture, which read "ALL LIVES MATTER" striking the word "BLACK" on the post. Her post drew massive outrage. 

In the now-deleted post, people termed her as "tone-deaf" and "privileged". 

Sharing her post on Twitter, a user wrote: "Sara Ali Khan is a prime example of how privilege can give you the access to education in one of the best universities but not brains to apply that and learn from there."

Another one pointed out, "Sara Ali Khan, a history graduate from Columbia University, not only accessorising a black model in one of her shoots but also supporting all lives matter on a platform where she has a significant following is further proof that going to an Ivy league doesn’t necessarily mean you’re smart."

On the work front, Sara will next be seen opposite Varun Dhawan in 'Coolie No. 1' remake. She was last seen in Imtiaz 'Ali's Love Aaj Kal'.
