Twitter was hot on controversy this month after an account of US vlogger Samantha A. Gerry popped up, only to be revealed that it was a troll account run by Pakistani comedian Shehzad Ghias.

It was created shortly after Cynthia Ritchie's presence on social media went viral, when it became evident that Pakistanis pander to the white saviour complex and the white man's burden.

Taking these narratives a step further, comedian Shehzad Ghias decided to prove that Pakistanis are slaves to colonialism and consequently Samantha Gerry was born, posing as a couch surfer from New York visiting the country.

It didn't stop him from trolling Cynthia either.

Pakistani men jumped on the opportunity to host the American and show her around.

Till the comedian dropped the bomb on his Insta story this weekend, playing along to an interview with Samantha only to reveal that it was him behind the fake account.

And no kidding, Twitteratis felt a little foolish.

But others saw what it exposed about Pakistan.

This goes to show the conduct of desis who treat white people differently than people of their own race.
