Siddharth passes sexist and misogynistic comment against Badminton Player Saina Nehwal; faces backlash on Twitter

Many actors and activists have condemned the lewd tweet.

Actor Siddharth has taken Twitter by a storm after he posted a lewd and sexist comment against India’s top Badminton player, Saina Nehwal. Saina, who also happens to be a part of BJP, had shared a comment regarding the PM’s security breach in Punjab. Taking to Twitter, she had said on Jan 5th, “No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists.”

Replying to this tweet, Siddharth, who is always known for grabbing limelight through his tweets, shared a rather very sexist and lewd comment against the Badminton world champion. The tweet said, “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India.”

The comment took the Internet by storm as many actors had tweeted in support of Saina Nehwal, condemning the comments passed by Siddharth.


Following this, the National Commission for Women (NCW) also took the matter into cognizance. “@NCWIndia has taken cognisance. Chairperson @sharmarekha has written to @DGPMaharashtra for investigating & registering FIR in the matter. NCW has also written to @TwitterIndia for blocking the actor’s account & to take appropriate action against him for posting such remarks,” the NCW official page had tweeted. 


Despite several women leaders and activists calling out Siddharth for his tweet, the actor has now out put another tweet justifying his remark.
