Bollywood's Most Controversial Tweet: Sonam Kapoor & 5 Statements Go Down Badly With The Public

Leela Adwani |Nov 30, 2019

Take a look at some of the most stormy and controversial tweets of Sonam Kapoor recently.

The advent of social media and the rapid rise of this platform have been beneficial for many people, especially celebrities as it has turned out to be incredibly easy for them to directly communicate with their fans. However, there are two sides of the same coin because it’s also as easy for celebs to say uncontrollably dumb and offensive things without much thought.

Sonam Kapoor is one of a few actors in B-town who hasn’t shied away from speaking of her mind. However, it sometimes cooks up a storm of controversies. Here is a look at some of the most stormy and controversial tweets of the actress recently.

Sonam Kapoor and her anti-nationalist comments

The heightened tension between two neighboring countries India and Pakistan is by far the most-talked-about topic that is found right and left on social media. The 34-year-old star put herself into trouble when promoting allegedly ‘anti-Hind’ sentiments.

The Zoya Factor actress added to her Instagram story to repost a post from "Humans of Hindutva".

Here is the post:

However, Twitterari soon slammed Kapoor and Malik for their comments, with one user writing, "Bas in jeso k wajah se hum kabhi 1 nhi ho pae, desh k asli gaddar yahi log hai.. #BikaooBollywood #SonamKapoor."

Another user went on to write, “FIR should be filed against Sonam Kapoor for hate speech against Hindus @MumbaiPolice #SonamKapoor #AntiNational."

Sonam Kapoor vs Vivek Oberoi

Earlier, in May 2019, Sonam Kapoor slammed actor Vivek Oberoi in her tweet and even called him disgusting and classless.  Everything began when Vivek took to his Twitter handle to share a distasteful meme on the Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan’s 2002 love affair and even compare it to the elections which were underway back then.

None other than Sonam was the first one to voice her opinion on such matters. Responding to this, the actress outright went on Twitter to slam back at Vivek. Here is what she said:

For those uninitiated, Vivek, Aishwarya and Salman remained a love triangle and it was the talk of the town back in the early 2000s.

Sonam and her tweet of the killing of an Aligarh child

The Neerja actress found herself at the heart of a storm because of her comment urging everyone not to make the murder of the Aligarh two-and-a-half-year-old girl into a “selfish agenda.”

The lady tweeted, "What has happened to baby... is heartbreaking and horrific. I pray for her and her family. I also urge people to not make this into a selfish agenda. This is a little girl's death, not a reason to spread your hate.”

No prize for guessing, the tweet instantly triggered the angriness from the netizens and also grabbed the attention of filmmaker Ashoke Pandit.

He said, "Sonam on... you questioned the values of India by tweeting: 'I am Hindustan. I am ashamed. 8-year-old gang raped and murdered in 'Devi'-sthaan Temple.' And now on... you tweet saying, 'I urge people to not make this into a selfish agenda.' Why this disparity.”

Sonam and comments on Kashmir

Earlier, in September, Sonam once again invited the wrath of netizens when she publicly expressed her opinions towards the on-going state of affairs occurring in the Kashmir region. Not just this, she also talked about the increasing hostility between India and the neighboring country Pakistan.

However, it seemed like her statements didn’t go down well with the majority. She instantly became the center of social media trolls. Some even poked fun at her comment of the “links in Pakistan” with a picture of her dad Anil Kapoor with a criminal mobster and drug dealer Dawood Ibrahim.
