Sonam Kapoor has never been the one to mince words and now she has done it again. The Bollywood actor shared a news article from her Twitter handle on Wednesday and maybe even she didn’t realise that it would turn into such a sour experience for her.
Kapoor posted a piece on how Twitter has reacted to a four-day meat ban in Mumbai owing to the Jain fasting season of Paryushan. However, Kapoor captioned the post with something unusual: “Our country is going to remain a 3rd world nation because of the intolerant misogynistic close minded few.” This left a lot of people baffled as they couldn’t figure how meat ban can be misogynistic.
This confusion got some Twitter trolls working overtime to target the actor. Sonam tried hard to make people understand what she wanted to convey but to no avail. The hate kept pouring in, making Sonam snap. She then started swearing and calling people “a**holes, morons” on Twitter.
Sample these tweets showcasing Sonam’s wrath:
However, many came to her rescue as well:
Dear @sonamakapoor they come after you not because they think you mixed meat with misogyny but because they are bullies. Ignore !— barkha dutt (@BDUTT) September 8, 2015
Even she is getting slammed for having non-partisan, non-religious view about freedom. Glad she holds her ground. https://t.co/I0iUekKgiD— Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) September 8, 2015
