- VJ Bani, Gaurav Chopra, Rahul Dev were punished for speaking English
- 'Bigg Boss should forbid people from profanity,' read a tweet
- 'What comedy is going in name of task,' tweeted another
Day 18 ended with VJ Bani, Gaurav Chopra and Rahul Dev being handed a task that kept them up all night for speaking in English. As per usual, it ended in drama and tears (Bani's) and today, a day later, Twitter has much to say about this linguistic recalcitrance.
A lone user suggests that it wasn't English that offends but the foul language used:
Bani, who appears to be fairly unpopular, has been singled out for scorn:
#BB10 Bigg Boss punished Bani for speaking English ; still she is not relenting and speaking the same language..This kind of behaviour is— Sidarth Pratap Singh (@sidtweets_) November 4, 2016
The amount English Bani is speaking while doing her punishment - thy should have turned the sirens on right then #BB10— Bigg Boss 10 USA (@BigBoss10USA) November 4, 2016
But not everyone is against her:
Lopa speaks in English a lot too! #BB10— Bigg Boss 10 USA (@BigBoss10USA) November 4, 2016
Bani's misdemeanours aren't the only topic of discussion online. Two other contestants - Lopamudra Raut and Mona Lisa - went for a swim in the pool which, apparently, stopped both the Bigg Boss house as well as Twitter in its tracks.
At least someone other than us is outraged.
Australian TV personality of Indian-origin Priya Malik told NDTV, "I feel that Bigg Boss in India is way more dramatized and is driven more towards entertainment." Priya has been on both Bigg Boss and Big Brother Australia and is rooting for VJ Bani.
