Outrage after Ram Gopal Varma posts ‘sexist tweet’ for newly elected BJP MLA in Assam


Ram Gopal Varma flound himself amidst considerable social media onslaught on Tuesday after he tweeted praising the looks of BJP’s newly elected Assam MLA, Angurlata Deka.

Varma’s tweet said, “If MLA can look like this,Achche din aagaye hai..Thank you Angoorlataji,Thank you Modiji..1st time I love politics.”

Within seconds, BJP supporters took to twitter to give the Bollywood filmmaker grief reminding him about the sexist nature of his tweet.

A hashtag #SaySorryRGV too was launched with BJP supporters demanding apology from Varma.

A popular actor and model in Assam, Angurlata Deka won on BJP’s ticket from Batadroba constituency defeating Conbgress’ Gautam Bora.

Faced with social media criticism, Varma posted clarification a day later.

He wrote, “With regards to my comment on Angoorlataji,I was just paying a compliment to her .since most MLA’s don’t look good it was such a change. My every compliment is taken as negative comment…I don’t know if it’s the lack of their English knowledge or their dumbness quotient.”
