Sonam Kapoor involved in Twitter war over tweet
Actress Sonam Kapoor has spent much of Tuesday morning furiously explaining herself on Twitter after including the word ‘misogynistic’ in a tweet she had sent out earlier. The 30-year-old actress retweeted a news report on the 4 day meat ban imposed in Maharashtra and wrote: Our country is going to remain a 3rd world nation because of the intolerant misogynistic close minded few. Sonam had 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.
Sonam spent the next few hours responding to several commenters, explaining that she had meant to indicate her disapproval of the attitude of a certain section of society rather than describe the ban on sale of meat as derogatory to women.
After having personally responded to several tweets, Sonam issued a general clarification couched in very strong language, denouncing those who had failed to understand her.
Several hours after her original tweet, Sonam announced that she would be sticking to tweeting about subjects she is popularly supposed to be expert in.
