Neena Gupta On Masaba Gupta’s Letter, “Proud Of My Daughter”

Yesterday, we told you designer Masaba Gupta was trolled by netizens and was called nasty names like a ba***d child and an illegitimate West Indian for supporting the ban on crackers in Delhi& NCR. The designer then put out an open letter and shut down the trolls like a boss.

Today, Masaba’s mother, Neena Gupta spoke to an entertainment portal and said, “It doesn’t annoy me at all. People who have nothing to do and are jealous of you want to malign you, such people are everywhere, and it’s not surprising at all. I am very happy with her response; I really liked the way she wrote it.”

When asked if she gets affected by the negativity around, Neena Gupta said, “I am not affected at all because I didn’t read it, because I am not on twitter.”

Yesterday, Masaba lambasted these trolls by saying, "Recently I re-tweeted in the support of the Firecracker ban by the Supreme Court and like every other issue in this country, big or small.. The trolling & bashing began. By calling me names like 'bastard child' or 'illegitimate west Indian' it only makes my chest swell with pride. I'm the illegitimate product of two of the MOST legitimate personalities you'll find & I've made the best life, both personally and professionally... out of which I'm proud of. I've been called these names since I was 10 years old & ever since I could read the newspapers these are two words that I am immune to. My legitimacy comes from the work that I do & what my contribution to society has been. And you can try but you will not be able to raise a single finger on either of the two. So, please if you must…go ahead and continue calling me these names if it makes you feel glorious. But know this… I am a proud Indo-Caribbean girl who doesn’t know how to shrink and crumble in shame of something you or your society cannot handle. It’s just in my ‘illegitimate’ genes (sic)."
