Actor Vivek Oberoi shocked everyone recently with a poor tweet that compared Aishwarya Rai with the election result. The actor captioned the image with “Haha, creative. No politics here, just life.” The tweet didn’t go well with many of the stars including Sonam Kapoor who called it disgusting. Vivek Oberoi also received a letter from National Commission of Women sent out a warning letter.
The actor who first told that he will not apologise took Twitter to ask sorry.
“Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies, tweet deleted,” said Mr Oberoi, adding in another tweet: “Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others.”
In his apology, Vivek Oberoi also reiterated words previously said to news agency ANI: “I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls, I can’t even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever.”
Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies🙏🏻 tweet deleted.
