While Deepika Padukone was basking compliments for Finding Fanny, soon she was raging with anger against India’s leading newspaper, The Times Of India.
The anger is directed on a story published by the newspaper on twitter with a headline “OMG: Deepika Padukone’s cleavage show!”
The furious actress immediately reacted with the following tweets:
“Supposedly India’s ‘LEADING’ newspaper and this is ‘NEWS’!!??”
“Yes! I am a Woman. I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??”
Clearly Deepika was really upset with the story however the publication dug its own grave with its further tweets. To pacify the leading Bollywood actress the publication tweeted,” It’s a compliment! You look so great that we want to make sure everyone knew! :)”
Obviously the second tweet did more damage than good and several Bollywood celebrities came forward in their support to Deepika Padukone including Karan Johar, Priyanka Chopra, Dia Mirza and Arjun Kapoor.
Some of the tweets in support of Deepika are:
@karanjohar: Appalled….shocked and disgusted at the level of disrespect shown..Deepika or any women in the world cannot and should not stand for this!!
@ayushmannk: Dear yellow journalism, a star showed you that some of you are green. • Dear yellow journalism, yeh-lo!
@aditiraohydari: Thank you for this! About time! #RESPECT “@deepikapadukone: YES!I am a Woman.I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??”
@RahulBose1: Just reading TOI Ent’s coverage of @deepikapadukone Stunned. A new low. Well done, Deepika, for not letting it go. Neither shall we.
@sidmallya: And the @TimesofIndia response may just have to go down as one of the most idiotic, shambollic and stupid responses of all time. Bravo
