After an enraged Deepika Padukone replied to a Twitter post made by a daily regarding her cleavage, tweeple took the matter in their stride and #IStandWithDeepikaPadukone started trending on Sunday.

"Yes! I am a woman. I have breasts and a cleavage! You got a problem!!??" Padukone tweeted Sunday afternoon, taking on the 'news' post.

"Don't talk about women's empowerment when you don't know how to respect women!" she added as a rejoinder.

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.

The news organisation later tweeted: "It's a compliment! You look so great that we want to make sure everyone knew! :)"

But, guess what? Tweeple, including Deepika's Finding Fanny co-actor Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johar and other celebs, had much to say after that:
