Choose words wisely, Sunny Leone on RGV's sexist tweet


Sunny Leone has finally spoken up on the tweet fiasco that happened after Ram Gopal Varma wrote a misogynistic tweet regarding the ‘Jism 2’ actress on the occasion of Women’s Day.

Sunny uploaded a video clip on Twitter in which she says, “Hey everyone! I read all the news today and I believe that change only happens when we have one voice, so choose your words wisely.” The actress shared the video with the caption, ‘Change only happens when we have one voice, so let’s choose your words wisely! Peace and love!!’

RGV received a lot of flak on social media with his Women’s Day tweet which read, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.” Furious twitteratis lashed out at the filmmaker asking him to say this to his mother and daughters.

A police complaint was also filed against him for his “offensive tweet, outraging a woman's modesty" by Goa-based activist Vishakha Mhambrey. She also demanded that RGV be booked under Cyber laws and section 292 of IPC, and his Twitter account permanently blocked. Film Studio Setting and Allied Mazdoor Union also decided to boycott the ‘Sarkar’ director due to his controversial tweets.

RGV initially threatened to file and counter-FIR against the police complaint and also suggested that he ‘doesn’t care’. “Filing counter against OverActivist wid 212 followers which wud b her family n friends, for disrespecting 18 lakh followers of @SunnyLeone,” he tweeted, and followed it with another tweet posting a still of Leonardo DiCaprio from the film ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ with the inscription ‘I'm 97% sure you don't like me but I'm 100% sure I don't care’, and captioned it, “My Thoughts.”

However, the director later apologised and wrote, “Was just expressing my feelings but I apologise to all who were offended due to my unintended insensitive tweets in context of women’s day.”

“My apology is only to those who genuinely got offended and not to those who ranted for publicity nd threatened to take law into their hands,” he added in another tweet.
