Vivek Oberoi deletes the tweet in Aishwarya Rai after severe backlash
Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi made headlines yesterday after posting a controversial tweet regarding Aishwarya Rai’s past-present relationships and the current election scenario.
His comment drew a lot of flak from women in the film industry and the general public as well. National Commission for Women and Maharashtra women commission slapped notices and sought his explanation.
However, Vivek Oberoi, in his video interviews maintained that he hasn’t done anything wrong and that everyone is overreacting over a meme. Later, he issued an apology and deleted the tweet.
He wrote, “Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls, I can't even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever. Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies tweet deleted.
