Poonam Pandey’s titillating tweets and semi-naked pictures may make her fans go gaga over her, but the model has caught the ire of Bangaldeshi author Taslima Nasreen, who
has publicly abused the 19-year-old.
“Poonam Pandey got naked but not satisfied. She wanna do dirtiest things none did before. Wants to get f****d in public (sic),” Nasreen wrote on microblogging site Twitter. Her anger was in response to a picture that Pandey had posted of herself in a bikini, with a tweet, “Attitude is like your underwear; you must wear it, but never show it. But then I like flaunting the right attitude a lot.” Pandey shot back saying, “I don’t have an ‘attitude problem’, I have an attitude that you have a problem with. So, yeah B***H, it’s actually your problem (sic).” Nasreen then tried to tone down the issue and wrote, “'My protest against d objectification is 4 women’s dignity, not 4 publicity. My criticism was against d video u endorsed (sic).”
On being contacted, Pandey said that Nasreen is gathering publicity by using her name. “She should pay me royalty for the fame she got by tweeting about me. I don’t even know who she is. I don’t regret abusing her as she she got personal first.”
