For all those who are still scratching their heads over the issue, here’s what happened: In an episode on MTV Roadies, Neha, who’s one of the judges, schooled a male contestant when he revealed that he slapped his girlfriend because he cheated on him with five other men while still being in a relationship with him. A furious Neha told him that it was the girl’s choice to date five men at a time and he shouldn’t have slapped her. This irked many who thought Neha was the best example of ‘pseudo-feminist’ who justified cheating in a relationship.
Later, Neha released an official statement on the matter revealing how she and her family were being abused on social media for her statement. The actor said her parents were receiving abusive WhatsApp messages and her one-year-old daughter was being cursed. Most celebs in the industry including Karan Johar, Sophie Choudry, Malaika Arora, Aparshakti Khurana, Sonu Sood and Taapsee Pannu among others lent their support to Neha with the posts on social media.
While Neha’s statement clears her stand, people are still not okay with her understanding of feminism. Various social media users explained how Neha calling out violence was justified but she shouldn’t have supported cheating in a committed relationship. Your thoughts on the entire issue?
