Kartik Aaryan might be in deep trouble right now for using the N-word casually. The actor is right now busy promoting his upcoming film, Imtiaz Ali directed Love Aaj Kal. In his recent tweet, he posted a video where he is trying to pose with his co-star Arushi Sharma the old-school way. However, he captioned this video in the current offensive viral meme format that consists of words 'nibba' or 'nibbi.' Netizens took notice of the same and slammed the unaware Kartik for using N-word casually. 'Tum Mujhe Tang Karne Lage Ho!' Sara Ali Khan's Dialogue From Love Aaj Kal Continues to Get Hilariously Trolled With Funny Memes and Jokes.
Here is the Meaning and Definition of Nibba and Nibbi-
In case you too are unaware, the words are currently a sort of viral trend through various meme formats. The Slang dictionary says, 'Nibba is an alteration of 'Nigga,' a variant of the N-word reclaimed by some Black speakers.' Nibba is mostly used by the white people during their interaction online to avoid using the actual offensive word and fall in trouble. However, it is still considered to be as offensive as the N-word.
