ETimes Troll Slayer: Netizens trashing Deepika Padukone’s Oscars performance need lessons in inclusivity | Hindi movie news

Deepika Padukone made India proud when she represented the country at the 95th Academy Awards. The actress turned heads in a stunning black dress, paired with matching velvet gloves. She had an updo and cat wing lashes. Deepika completed her elegant look with a statement Cartier necklace with a pear-shaped yellow diamond pendant, a diamond bracelet and a ring.

Instead of paying tribute to the actress, some netizens could spew hate. ETimes condemns such negativity, especially when directed at a person who has quite a few achievements to his name.

Take a look at some of the digs Deepika Padukone faced and our responses to the same:

“why does it look like lady gaga 2019 oscar”

It’s not her fault if Deepika’s Oscar moment reminded you of another iconic look… she served style while you chased hate. To quote facts, Deepika and Lady Gaga’s looks were quite different, colors don’t define similarities and the comparisons you forcefully want to create are just a reflection of your limited thinking. Maybe take a crash course in couture next time before you make a fool of yourself.

“Could have worn a beautiful handwoven saree. You all represent India. Who better to promote our real heritage of craftsmanship.”


You can voice your thoughts but the distasteful words used to drag down an actress are downright nasty! Deepika chose what she felt was best and we must stand by her in this moment of glory instead of slamming her with hate.

“White skin kese hoye?”


People like you can never get over colorism. Discriminating an actress on a global platform for her skin color is the lowest a troll can ever hit. We suggest you avoid these draconian thoughts and empower women with love instead. In an age of inclusiveness and representation, your lack of insight is the worst shade of gray.
