Amanda’s post soon went viral and was flooded with amazing reactions from the netizens on this. While many praised the vlogger for coming out in support of the farmers’ protest. There were many who started trolling and slamming her for the same.
Among many, a social media user wrote that the Indian artists are too scared of the government to talk about the issue. The social media user wrote: “Our Indian artists are too scared of the government to post about this, hats off Amanda Cerny”
Amanda soon noticed the comment and opened up about the reason behind the same. She wrote: “I know. I’ve spoken with many people and understand they don’t want to hurt their business by speaking their mind. Careers can be ended as it’s all so ‘political’. But I think there is more value in self-sacrifice to allow for a voice to others that are being silenced. It can initially suck but at the end of it all, you live with real purpose if you aim to do what’s right with zero self interest”.
