"Yes! I am a woman. I have breasts and a cleavage! You got a problem!!??" actor Deepika Padukone tweeted on Sunday, taking on a “news” post.
"Don't talk about women's empowerment when you don't know how to respect women!" she posted.

The Finding Fanny actor was apparently enraged over a story on her 'cleavage show' in, what she called, "supposedly India's leading newspaper". The tweet added — and this is “News”?
Her tweets created quite a storm. Her three back-to-back tweets had over 1,500 re-tweets in less than an hour.
Sample some of the reactions that came in on Twitter:

What makes you think that a woman who shows a bit of her cleavage is begging for your attention?It's because she's proud of her femininity!— Sting Ray (@Purba_Ray) September 14, 2014
