Social media is a platform where people voice their opinions, oblivious of other’s reactions, because our social media profiles belong completely to us. It is one place where we cant rant, share thoughts. But when a public figure does so, he or she falls prey to public flak and people don’t waste time to make them at the receiving end of their hate. And that is exactly what happened to ‘Padmavati’ actress Deepika Padukone recently when she posted a picture on Instagram of a still from her film with her co-star and ex boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor on the occasion of Holi. Little did she know that she would be slut shamed for this. Also Read - Lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt Shoot For an Ad, Pictures Take Internet By Storm

sharma_manju01 “Chep hori h buri trh jab wo ni karta tereko pasand , or tattoo b hata le nd move on baby, and let him live a life with peaceful.”

@aditisinghgdb “how can you do this. I like your pairing with Ranbir on-screen but you have chosen Ranbir over Ranveer. When you know Ranveer is sensitive and will feel bad, why are you hurting him. How can you chose that Ranbir who said that a disgusting lady like Katrina is more motivational for him than you knowing you have always supported him. Ranveer always cared for you. I still like you but I’m surprised.”

debanjana07 “Why being such a chipu deepika, i was ur fan now not liking u 1 bit.”

mr_sayyed007 “Hahahha kya madam kbhi ranbir toh kabhi ranveer ab apki is post Ki wajhe se ranveer Ko lag Gaya Na bura ab chahte toh ram leela wali bhi photo post Kr skte thhe but ye jawani bhi toh hoti hai diwani @deepikapadukone”

bana_ghaleb “Perfect match. You deserve no one but a cheater in your life. ? hope one day he feels bad for how bad you’re trying and starts having feelings for you, till then enjoy the memories. And yeah can’t wait for the poor ranveer to dump you.”

It’s such a shame that in a democratic country like India, people still shame others for using their democratic rights.
