Yasir Hussain tries to be funny with transphobic comments
On those series, someone asked him why producers do not hire an actual transgender person for this specific role. The question was simple and authentic and could be answered wisely however Yasir replied the person who asked the question that if he wanted this job.
Here is the series of comments:
People on social media were not really amused by his comment and slammed him on media for belittling the issue.

No part of the drama industry is actually about raising awareness regarding social issues. It is purely for entertainment. Yasir Hussain made that very clear.

People like Yasir Hussain should be condemned for such terrible jokes. Yasir makes a joke by calling the other person a transgender while portraying a powerful role. It shows exactly why he should not be doing this role. What a loser. @Xadeejournalist @MJibranNasir @Razarumi pic.twitter.com/M9QdiaoiZI

Why did we all even give #YasirHussain a second chance? Two years ago, he made an insensitive joke about child molestation. And that was on stage at a popular awards show! https://t.co/WsIZblITh9

This is not the first time, Yasir Hussain is under fire due to his tongue and hands slipping down to a stupid joke. He was blasted for a joke he made about child molestation at the Hum Awards in Lahore in 2017. When Ahsan Khan accepted the role of best villain, Yasir Hussain said,Itna khoobsurat child molester, kaash mein bhi bacha hota.Lets see how the fire will settle down.
