- Anil Kapoor said he doesn't get involved in his kids' matters
- Abhay Deol criticised celebs featuring in fairness cream ads
- Sonam Kapoor took adig at him and was trolled
Recently, Abhay Deol obliquely slammed Bollywood celebs (like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor) for endorsing fairness creams. After Abhay's post received a positive response and went viral, Sonam, who has co-starred with Abhy Deol in 2010 film Aisha, reminded him in a tweet that his cousin, actress Esha Deol, has also featured in a fairness cream ad. She posted another tweet in which she said she shot for the L'Oreal advertisement, which Abhay had invoked in his scathing post, a decade ago and she "didn't understand the ramifications." She deleted both the tweets after she was trolled mercilessly - A) for dragging Esha Deol in the matter and making it a personal attack and B) for deleting the tweets and not being able to stand by her words.
Here are the screenshots of Sonam's tweets and Abhay's replies:
Is wrong too. For my views read my post. https://t.co/Jw9CNINd6t— abhay deol (@AbhayDeol) April 12, 2017
Here's what the Twitter trolls had to say:
@AbhayDeol It's wrong on her part to bring this personal matter to discussion on twitter.— Dinesh Chaturvedi (@dineshisfun) April 12, 2017
Abhay Deol's posts were provokes by a politician - BJP leader Tarun Vijay - comments on India not being racist. Here's what he posted about Sonam Kapoor.
