Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda came under the scanner for a problematic joke he once made on former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Mayawati. A Twitter user shared an old clip featuring Randeep Hooda attending a chat show. In the video, Hooda made a sexist joke on politician Mayawati. The user called out the actor for his inappropriate joke. Later, the Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai actor faced severe backlash on social media. Many demanded an apology from Hooda. Now, Richa Chadha slammed Randeep Hooda for his casteist and sexist joke
Another Twitter user made a tweet, asking where ‘feminist’ actors like Swara Bhasker, Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha and others are. Reacting to the same, Richa Chadha tweeted, “It's a despicable "joke". It's crass, tasteless and sexist.” The actress made another tweet and wrote, “Yes. It's casteist too.” She added, “Also, plz explain to the reason why you continue to ask ONLY women to apologise for their male colleagues while you pontificate on sexism. Not holding my breath.” Chadha asked the user to explain why only women are asked to apologise for the actions of their male colleagues.
Take a look at the tweet below:
After the outrage on social media, Randeep Hooda was removed as the Ambassador of the UN for his 2012 joke.
