Jawed Habib, a celebrity hairstylist, has sparked outrage on social media when one of his videos went popular on Twitter. Jawed may be seen spitting on a woman’s head in the viral footage. According to media sources, the video was taken at a training lecture in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. When Habib spits on her head and says her hair is dry, the woman sits in a chair on the stage. “Agar paani ki kami hai na.. iss thook mein jaan hai,” he stated as he shared hair care suggestions with the crowd.
The crowd seemed amused by the occurrence, as they all applauded him and laughing and claps filled the room.
Take a look at this:
Another video of a lady is circulating on Twitter, claiming to be the same woman who spat on Jawed’s hair. She is heard saying in a video, “My name is Pooja Gupta, and I live in Baraut. I own a beauty business called Vanshika. I went to Javed Habib’s seminar the other day. He had asked me on stage for a haircut, and he was really misbehaving. He was demonstrating that if you don’t have access to water, you can make do with your spit. I didn’t have my hair chopped. I’d get my hair cut at any local barbershop, but never at Jawed Habib’s.”
Jawed Habib later remarked in his apologetic video that similar things are frequently done with a ‘humorous’ motive during long workshops and seminars. He was, however, deeply sorry if anyone was injured as a result of the incident.
“During my seminar, I said certain things that hurt a few people. I just want to clarify that they are professional workshops, meaning that they are attended by experts in our field. We have to make these sessions funny when they grow too long. I’m not sure what to say. If you have been harmed, please accept my heartfelt apologies. In the video, Jawed Habib can be heard pleading, “Please forgive me, I am sorry.”
