The ongoing farmers’ protest in india got a fillip when YouTuber & Late night host Lilly Singh walked the Grammys red carpet with a mask that read ‘I stand with farmers’. Farmers from states like Haryana Punjab and western Uttar Pradesh (UP) have been protesting against the three farm laws brought in by the central government.

Taking to Twitter & posting a picture of herself on the red carpet with the mask, she wrote: “I know red carpet/award show pictures always get the most coverage, so here you go media. Feel free to run with it Raised fist #IStandWithFarmers #GRAMMYs.” She is wearing a black blazer paired with a matching bodycon shirt. Her hair is done in a high ponytail. Lilly’s mask is prominently visible.

Sharing her picture, Bollywood actor Swara Bhasker wrote, “@Lilly taking the Indian #FarmersProtests to the #GRAMMYs.” She even added a bunch of applause emojis.

Lilly Singh is the latest international celebrity to voice her concern & show her support for the controversial laws. Over the last couple of months a number of international celebrities spoke on the subject. In February this year, pop singer Rihanna had tweeted an article on suspension on internet connection around Delhi during the protests & had written: “Why aren’t we talking about this?!” using #FarmersProtest as a hashtag.

Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg also joined the protest by posting a toolkit for protests. It soon became controversial, which led to her deleting the original and then posting an updated one.
