Comedian-Youtuber Lilly Singh made a statement on the 63rd Grammy Awards to highlight and support the ongoing farmers protest in India.
Singh arrived on the Grammys red carpet wearing a black mask that had “I Stand With Farmers” written on it.
“I know red carpet/award show pictures always get the most coverage, so here you go media. Feel free to run with it,” Lilly said in a tweet.
The Canadian celebrity of Indian origin, has over nine million followers on Instagram, more than 14 million subscribers on YouTube and 5.5 million followers on Twitter.
Earlier, in December 2020, in a viral TikTok clip, Lilly urged her massive global fan base to “Stop!” and get informed about the “largest human protest in history” in India.
Farmers have been protesting at Delhi’s borders for over 100 days against the agricultural laws introduced by Narendra Modi’s government.
