Vivek Oberoi Gets Properly Schooled for His Meme With Ashwariya Rai

The apology was as ‘tasteful’ as the meme.

In a recent incident of sexism in the biz, Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi posted a meme targeting Ashwariya Rai’s relationship history.

Vivek Oberoi is known to have dated Aishwarya Rai after her break-up with Salman Khan. Although the former Miss World did not confirm the relationship, the animosity between Oberoi and Khan made it clear.

What Happened?

Recently, Vivek posted a collection of three pictures on Twitter. The top one included Aishwarya-Salman Khan and was labeled ‘opinion poll’. The second photo was of him and Aishwarya called ‘exit poll’. The bottom picture was with Abhishek Bachchan and her daughter with the caption ‘result.’

He captioned said meme as:

“Haha! creative! No politics here….just life,”

The Consequences

No one really appreciated this tasteless meme. Even fellow Bollywood celebrities really went to town on Oberoi for being classless.

 

Netizens Pitched In

Twitterati really made some points at the PM Narendra Modi actor’s choices.

Oberoi Hit with Legal Notice

With all the attention that the tweet received, it also grabbed a legal notice. Chairperson of National Commission for Women (NCW) Rekha Sherma took notice and tweeted that NCW would send Oberoi a notice soon.

In a television interview NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said that;

“We (NCW) would like him (Vivek Oberoi) to apologise on social media & personally also to the person concerned. If he doesn t do, we will see what legal action can we take against him. We will be talking to Twitter to remove that tweet immediately,”

The Apology

Vivek Oberoi then deleted his tweet and apologized to the people who were irked by the meme. The apology wasn’t so tasteful either.

This was then followed by a Twitter apology. A properly phrased one at that.

Has Vivek Oberoi learnt his lesson by now or not? You decide.
