Ram Gopal Varma is the most horrible, racist, sexist man on Twitter right now

Ram Gopal Varma has been tweeting the most horrible things about the Obamas’ skin colour, posting her pictures in bikinis and calling Melania a better First Lady because she is ‘hotter’ than Michelle, saying that blacks want to be like whites while no white person wants to be black.

Ram Gopal Varma couldn’t be happier about Trump’s victory in the US Elections. He let it show by sharing some incredibly insensitive, racist tweets.

If you were wondering ,“Who in their right mind would ever vote for a sexist, racist bigot like Donald Trump?” Well, we seem to have found one such specimen of the human species: director Ram Gopal Varma.

There is no curbing the ire of people around the world who believe that America failed on Tuesday by choosing Donald Trump as their next president and closer home, Varma is only adding fuel to fire. He has been tweeting the most horrible things about the Obamas’ skin colour, posting her pictures in bikinis and calling Melania a better First Lady because she is ‘hotter’ than Michelle, saying that blacks want to be like whites while no white person wants to be black and all the worst possible thoughts that he can possibly muster.

While the entire world is still cringing about Trump’s comment on “grabbing women by the p***sy”, Varma thinks it’s an ‘advancement in human thinking’ that a man in his 60’s can still talk about doing such a thing.

We know that media giving wind to his hate is what he wants but it is also necessary to call out people like him. These people, who are the citizens of our own country, need to be confronted before we accuse Americans of harbouring all sorts of intolerance in their hearts for women and people from other races.

Varma is ranting on a social media platform how he loves whites more than blacks and masking it under ‘truth, intellectualism and common sense.’ And before you tell us that he is a one-off character and that no one is paying any attention to his words, we suggest you take a look at the replies he is getting from his followers. The sheer number of people commenting with hateful messages is unnerving.

Nothing could have made this day any better but the vulgarity and apathy put forward by Varma is sure making my heart sink to the ground. Swim through this entire, disgusting pile of hatred to feel the same:

That’s not even Melania, by the way.

Nothing beats this one though.

We really, really hope he was being sarcastic when he wrote these tweets. Or maybe his account was hacked. Surely these can’t be the thoughts of one of the country’s once critically appreciated director.
