Just over a week after being lambasted on Twitter for a sexually-loaded tweet demeaning the US Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, actor Rishi Kapoor has struck again with one of his 'funny' jokes. In his latest tweet, the 63-year-old actor compares TV star Kim Kardashian with a bag of onions.
Kapoor's tweets received mixed reactions from Twitteratis. While some users found the tweet funny and went beyond regular 'lols' to add their own versions to the 'joke', a few users expressed their displeasure towards the body shaming tweet.
Some days ago, Kapoor's tweet about Hillary Clinton received flak from many users who called it ‘sexist’ and ‘misogynist’.
He had posted a meme showing Clinton coughing with “Monica, is this right?” written on the picture. The accompanying post said, “History being checked! Tx for it ABjr. If it wasn’t RIGHT, it would have LEFT a bad taste (sic).”
The meme made an obvious reference to former US President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern.
Many users reverted to Kapoor, criticising his post.
@chintskap Sir this is not funny at all. The meme is the very definition of misogynist— Vivek (@vivek17b) July 27, 2016
Unmoved by criticism, Kapoor replied to accusations with the following tweets.
