Sona Mohapatra is not new taking on haters on social media and shutting down trolls. Her social media history would show that the singer has been at the receiving end of non-stop backlash from many over her views, but it also shows that over the years, Sona has perfected the art of a good clapback.
Sona schooled a troll asking why “all feminists” find it necessary to show their cleavage in order to “compete with men”. He also called her a victim of the “bolly gang” who was trying to woo them.
“Why all feminists have to show cleavage in order to compete with men... and after seeing ur few interviews i think ur a victim of bolly gang but again ur trying to woo them to be i their gang. wat a dichotomy,” the Twitter user wrote.
Her response was a mix of class and sass.
“I’d suggest you treat the multiple ‘cleavages’ in your brain before talking with anyone, let alone with a ‘feminist’ trying to ‘woo’ the ‘bolly gang’.. (Cleavage, noun : a sharp division; a split.)” she wrote.
Sona has been a champion of feminism, advocating the need for pay parity in the industry and speaking up for more women-centric films and worthy roles for female actors.
The singer, in a post on Facebook a couple of years back, had explained the need for feminism, and a world where women are equal to men, neither superior or inferior.
“The ideal society in the future would be one in which we all operated & thought as ‘humans’ first & gender did not play a role in the treatment meted out to anyone’s opportunities in the world. While that is a utopian dream in the current day, the reason we need to have such discussions, debates & even fights is to work towards such a future. Attitudinal change in a society won’t happen without the same. This is the ‘good fight’, & worth fighting make no mistake,” she had written then.
