Replying to the tweet, Siddharth wrote,
Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. 🙏🏽 Shame on you #Rihanna
Siddharth received a backlash from the netizens for his derogatory tweet on nations’ pride. However, Siddharth shared another tweet and clarified his stance. He wrote,
“COCK & BULL” That’s the reference. Reading otherwise is unfair and leading! Nothing disrespectful was intended, said or insinuated. Period.”
Saina Nehwal Reaction On Siddharth’s Remark
After netizens criticized the actor Siddharth for his remarks, now Saina Nehwal also gave her reaction to it. Speaking to India Today, Saina Nehwal said,
“I’m not sure what he meant… I used to like him as an actor but this was not nice. He can express himself with better words but I guess it’s Twitter and you remain noticed with such words and comments. If the security of the PM of India is an issue, then I’m not sure what is secure in the country.”
The National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Rekha Sharma has also sent the actor a notice over the tweet. What do you guys think about this incident? Let us know in the comments below.
