It all started with the missing credits

Fan-made content is one of the best highlights of social media that is not only a great source of entertainment, but can do marketing wonders too.

With social media comes a glut of fan-made content that is created using bits from here and there. Content creators don’t object to their edits being shared, but when it comes to credits, things can get nasty.

Something similar happened when singer Haroon Shahid shared a video on Twitter that had glimpses of Mahira Khan from her telefilm Ek Hai Nigar with Haroon Shahid’s Mitti playing in the background.

Haroon mentioned only his song in the tweet and provided a link for the full video. A friend of the video editor, however, wasn’t pleased with the singer for “stealing someone’s edit” without giving credits.

But Haroon’s response to her only made things worse. “Using my song, stealing ARY’s visuals and making an edit is worse. What you on about, stinker?”

The content creator rushed to her friend’s defence after noticing what she called a “disrespectful” response by Haroon. She claimed to know that Haroon used the video long ago without attributing it to her but she didn’t point it out since it was his own song.

“But stealing ARY’s visuals didn’t benefit me financially in any way and you [are] disrespecting a friend of mine for pointing out the bare minimum amazes me.” 

When Diva Magazine shared this unpleasant exchange on Instagram, Haroon commented under the post that the video had been forwarded to him on WhatsApp.

“Hello everyone, I’m sure you haven’t ever seen me being rude to people or anything but in this case this lady/guy was clearly out of line when she pointed out that I shared her/his edit,” Haroon said. “Firstly, a friend had sent this on WhatsApp and I had no clue who it was by. Secondly, this person was already upset with me a few days earlier since I was having my fun post Pakistan’s win over Indian.”

Haroon went on to say, “I figured I had hurt Indian sentiments and let me be clear I wasn’t out of line at any point. So since this person pointed out rudely and abruptly on Twitter I had to point out that using my own song without my permission in this case makes you worse.”

A few of Haroon’s fans commented, however, that if the fan misbehaved with him he should have known better than to be rude. They advised him to be kind and respectful towards his fans and followers.


A number of Haroon’s followers defended him too.
