Deepika Padukone took on the mighty Times of India for their shameless coverage of her cleavage in a photo gallery sourced from a sleazy You Tube channel. She tweeted her displeasure on outrage on her twitter account.
“YES!I am a Woman.I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??,” tweeted Padukone.
“Supposedly India’s ‘LEADING’ newspaper and this is ‘NEWS’!!??” and “Dont talk about Woman’s Empowerment when YOU don’t know how to RESPECT Women!,”
She set ablaze a torrent of support from her colleagues, fans and women at large. #IStandWithDeepikaPadukone is trending.
Now all those of you reading this piece don’t go hunting for her cleavage gallery on TOI and unwittingly help TOI prove that they show only what sells and that they do it because their audience wants it.
