After her blatantly disgusted sexist remarks that were shot on a viral video, the aunty who gave rape threats to a bunch of women wearing short dresses, has finally rendered an apology. In her Facebook post that dates to May 2, the middle-aged woman has written an unconditional apology stating that she should have been progressive in her ideology.
Her viral Facebook post reads, “I extend an unconditional apology to all the girls. In hindsight, I realise, I was harsh and incorrect in my statement. If any, I should have offered my opinion in private. I was concerned, however, I realize that I should have been protective and progressive in my outlook and not conservative and regressive. As a wife, sister and a mother and more importantly as a woman, I value every woman’s dignity. Once again, I profusely apologise to all women whose sentiments have been hurt.” (sic)

However, the veracity of her Facebook post isn’t yet identified. There are many comments on her post that appreciate the fact that people could collectively change someone’s sexist outlook, even if it means one person at a time.
In her video that went instantly viral on social media yesterday, the woman was filmed at a restaurant in a Gurgaon mall where she picked a girl from her group of friends and commented on her short skirt saying, “Excuse me, aapko sharam nahin aati aapke thighs dikh rahe hain.” Later, when the girls tried to defy her mindset, the woman turned to the group of seven men sitting nearby and asked them to rape the girl. She said, “Agar apko aise ladkiyan dikhti hain toh rape kar do.”
The girl then posted the video and wrote what happened. The caption on her post read, “Today my friends and I were harassed by a woman at a restaurant for me wearing a short dress. This middle-aged woman you’ll see in the video addressed seven men at the restaurant to rape us because she felt we deserved it for wearing short clothes and bashing her unsolicited opinion.”
