Twitter is least impressed with actress Taapsee Pannu’s tweet on a jealous boyfriend killing his 19-year-old girlfriend, in which she alluded to Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s controversial ‘slap’ interview with Anupama Chopra. On Monday, the 31-year-old actress shared a story, the headline of which read, “Man Smashes 19-Year-Old Girlfriend’s Head Over Her ‘Character'” and wrote, “Or maybe let’s just say they were madly in love with each other and this ‘act’ was to validate his true love for her.” Taapsee’s tweet appears to be a direct attack on Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s controversial statement in which he said, ‘there’s no emotion if you can’t slap your woman’ after his new film Kabir Singh and the eponymous character were slammed as ‘misogynistic.’
However, Taapsee’s tweet did not go down well with the Internet, who slammed Taapsee for being ‘insensitive’ in her critique of the filmmaker. The actress defended herself in a separate tweet, in which she wrote, “Statutory warning: people with no sense of sarcasm kindly ignore me and my tweet. Thank you, it was nice not knowing you.” But Twitter was unforgiving. One Twitter user said, “Sarcasm on brutally killed dead bodies was never a sensibility in any culture.” Another wrote, “It’s not sarcasm… it shows that you are a highly insensitive person… and you don’t have common sense but yes, common sense is not common.”
Taapsee Pannu was seen in Badla and Game Over earlier this year while she’s awaiting the release of Saand Ki Aankh, co-starring Bhumi Pednekar.
