When this 'fashionista' talked about something other than the fancy world she lives in, she was deemed a 'bimbo' with no sense or intellect. The people of the Internet assumed that the actor, who is a woman mind you, doesn't know the meaning of the word 'misogynist.'
It all started when she took to Twitter and expressed her views on the four-day meat ban in Mumbai. She wrote:
However, her post was taken in its literal sense, and the backlash was aplenty on Twitter with many calling her the 'second Alia Bhatt' (because that's not misogynistic at all). Many other asked her to just mind her business (read: fashion and Bollywood).
Our country is going to remain a 3rd world nation because of the intolerant misogynistic close minded few. https://t.co/JcIDEC3gQE— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) September 8, 2015
@Silent_budhha sir it was a critique of the general mentality not exclusive to the meat ban.. But please go on and judge.— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) September 8, 2015
Sometimes, when an incident occurs and one wishes to talk about it, one takes on the issue or the perpetrators at large -- in this case the Fadnavis government.
That's what Sonam Kapoor apparently intended. Her comment was just "a critique of the general mentality not exclusive to the meat ban", as she herself pointed it out while reverting to people on Twitter.
@hankypanty it was a critique of the general mentality.. Not just related to the meat ban.. This exact judgmental bullshit fucks us.— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) September 8, 2015
However, after fighting a pointless battle online, Kapoor eventually let go. Why? Maybe because it's just not the place for a celebrity to raise his/her voice. Or maybe because we're happy seeing them lead their picture perfect lives, not addressing issues that plague 'normal' people.
Here's Sonam Kapoor's tongue-in-cheek sign off. Samajhdaar ko ishaara kaafi hai?
Well I guess it's back to talking about fashion and brands.. Lol— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) September 8, 2015
