Our farmers have been protesting for over 3 months against the Centre’s new farm bills and several international celebs including YouTuber Lilly Singh stood in solidarity with them.
Yes! Thank you so much @rihanna. This is a humanity issue! #IStandWithFarmers and this narrative is TIRED. ❤️ https://t.co/H0h5EM7mNW— Lilly // #LateWithLilly (@Lilly) February 2, 2021
However, now Lilly Singh went a step further to show her support to the protesting farmers and made a historic statement at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. She wore a mask at the ceremony that read ‘I Stand With Farmers’.
