Kardashian doppelganger is embroiled in racism row after using racial slurs on Snapchat
A British-Pakistani influencer, who looks identical to Kylie Jenner, has launched a scathing, racist attack on social media – which has gone viral.
Fyza Ali, 29, who grew up in Birmingham and is now based in Dubai, sparked outrage with a Snapchat video in which she hurled racial slurs and verbal abuse at an unnamed woman who allegedly spoke badly about her mother.
During the rant, she made a graphic remark about bestiality, claimed that Pakistan has a worthless currency and made an offensive reference to female genitalia, as well as using the P-word.
People took to Twitter and TikTok to share their fury, but the influencer has refused to apologise, stating on the Instagram account she shares with her sister Sonia that the backlash stems from ‘a lot of girls from the UK who are very jealous and angry’.
She also claims that people need to ‘know both sides’ before judging her reaction.

The influencer, pictured, who counts one million followers on the Instagram account she shares with her sister, told an unnamed woman who allegedly behaved badly towards her mother to ‘go back to where you’re f****** from’
In the video, Fyza can be heard saying: ‘Instead of being in England, go back to where you’re f****** from, where they f*** donkeys for a living, have no f****** money, a s*** a** f****** currency and no one gives a f*** about them.’
Fyza added: ‘I’ll come to you because you’re too p**** and headbutt you back to your mum’s masala f****** vagina and try getting cheeky with me then cos b****, you’re mad.
‘I’m pretty, I’m hot, I live in an Arab country and I could f****** probably take your dad – he can be my f****** slave.’
Despite being of Pakistani origin, Fyza included several racist slurs in her attack including the P word.

Dubai-based sisters, known as SoniaxFyza on Instagram, have created their platform on social media by being doppelgängers of Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.
Despite denying trying to emulate the famous sisters in the past, Fyza, who is a trained makeup artist, often recreates Kim-inspired looks on her sister Sonia Ali, 26.
Instagram users have now accused the sisters of ‘self-hatred’ and of even changing their British accents to sound ‘more UAE’.
During the backlash, Fyza posted on their joint Instagram story an ‘unapologetic’ explanation about the situation.
She wrote: ‘Just because I am a social media influencer does not mean I don’t have the same rights as anyone else to defend myself.’

She continued: ‘I’m tired of ugly women playing the victim when they show one side.
‘I won’t apologise for defending myself in anger because I simply had enough, and stop trying to claim my sister and I, we have nothing to do with your community or your people no matter how much you want to force it or convince us or yourselves or even people we know because we simply don’t care.’
Fyza then posted humorous quotes, which read: ‘It’s people out there bonding over not liking you.’
Another said: ‘People be bothered by your page and not even suppose to be on it.’
With over one million followers on their combined Instagram account, the UK-born sisters specialise in makeup for Middle Eastern skin and are paid to endorse other products.
Fyza said she refused to apologise for ‘defending [herself] in anger’ and said she wouldn’t talk about the topic anymore
One Twitter user said: ‘ Imagine basing your entire existence off trying to be the UAE’s answer to the Kardashians- albeit on a budget. #soniaxfyza are creepy, plastic, deranged and in need of serious psychological support. IT’S NOT NORMAL.’
Many users called Missguided, who previously collaborated with the sisters, into question.
One tweeted: ‘I normally don’t ever speak about “influencers” but still disgusted in Soniaxfyza discriminating Pakistani and Kurdish people. Telling Pakistanis they should be grateful to have a UK passport and allowed freedom of travel. Is this the type of behaviour @Missguided support?’
Pretty Little Thing and Missguided both said they do not tolerate racism, with PLT saying they have not worked with the sisters since February
However, their popularity remains in tatters – with even fashion brand Missguided commenting on the video, which was posted to TikTok, writing: ‘This video has recently been brought to our attention and we do not tolerate any form or racism or discrimination.’
PrettyLittleThings said on TikTok they have not worked with the two sisters since February 2021 and ‘do not condone any acts of racism.’
Fans of the Ali sisters have also commented on how ‘creepy’ their ‘obsession’ with the Kardashian sisters is due to looking ‘completely different’ a few years ago – pointing fingers to surgery.
People called out the influencer for using the racial slurs in her rant and some called her a hypocrite
