Bollywood actress Sunny Leone was asked rather demeaning questions by CNN-IBN journalist Bhupendra Chaubey in a recent interview. The interview in question is going viral on the internet with netizens criticising the journalist for asking the same question in different ways, and is praising Leone for calmly answering all of them.
Leone was repeatedly asked by Chaubey if she regrets her past. He wishes to know if her past as a porn star was the biggest mistake of her life. And so he asks her the same, again and again.
She, of course, doesn't give in, and tells Chaubey she has no regrets and is proud of who she is.
Twitter had a field day at Chaubey's expense. Tweeple also lauded Leone for her timely wit.
Here are some tweets:
