Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor has always been vocal about her opinions and thoughts. The 34-year-old actress has always stood by the masses and the issues concerning them. However, Sonam got landed in controversy as she got into a nasty fight with an influencer page - Diet Prada on Instagram.
The Zoya Factor actress was called out for her hypocrisy and her opinion on sociological issues that exist in the Indian society. The page shared a post calling out celebrities at the MDL Beasts Electronic Music Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The event aimed at promoting Saudi Arabia as a tourist destination through the region's biggest musical event. Diet Prada’s post called out the attendees promoting this event just for "cashing big fat cheques".
A part of the post read, "What’s worse than an all-white @revolve influencer trip? Cashing big fat checks in exchange for #content creation (aka propaganda) to rehabilitate the image of Saudi Arabia, a country said to be causing “the world’s worst humanitarian crisis”, according to the United Nations. According to anonymous sources, six-figure sums were offered for attendance and geo-tagged posts."
Sonam shared the post on her Instagram story and wrote: "Let's agree to disagree, let's appreciate that the whole world is a shithole right now and any positive step forward is something that I want to celebrate. I was treated with immense respect and love as a Hindu brown female actor."
Diet Prada replied to Sonam’s comment and said: "Typical tone-deaf response by celebrities who receive preferential treatment." Later, Sonam was tagged in several posts claiming that people were not treated well at the fest by the influencer page.
The page then shared multiple tweets that dated from November 2017, which were posted by none other than Sonam. The tweet read, "Homosexuality is not a 'tendency' it's something you are born as and is absolutely NORMAL. To tell someone you can change is irresponsible." Along with it, a comment was added that read, "@sonamkapoor, would be cool if you could explain the hypocrisy of you promoting Saudi Arabia where LGBTQ are subjected to capital punishment..."
"Or maybe donate the money you made to various LGBTQ advocacy groups," the comment further read.
It seems Sonam out of words and she has not responded to the influencer page's latest post. There is a possibility that she might be waiting for an appropriate opportunity to slam the Instagram page.
