Sona Mohapatra calls Preity Zinta ‘dim-witted’ and ‘minion of patriarchy’ while recalling the actress’ ‘Aaj ki sweetu, kal ki metoo’ comment

Singer Sona Mohapatra has been quite vocal about victim blaming, especially in the case of sexual assault survivors, who are frequently asked what they wore at the time of a sexual assault. She recently reacted to the ongoing case of MJ Akbar who was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. But when a Twitter user used a line ‘sweetu-metoo’ from Preity Zinta‘s infamous 2018 interview, the singer expressed her anger by calling the actress ‘silly’, ‘dim-witted’ and a ‘minion of patriarchy.’ Also Read – 2020 Recap: From Akshay Kumar to Kangana Ranaut: Meet the Bollywood newsmakers of the year

Sona was putting forth her opinions on the latest developments in the MJ Akbar’s defamation case. “Are all the other women who have come forward to give their statements regarding the reprehensible behaviour of Mr MJ Akbar also lying?Why would they?Some laddoos coming their way going through the harrowing process of dealing with this nebulous aspect of the lopsided power play?” the singer has responding to a tweet.

However, a Twitter user jumped into her feed and commented, “Let the court speak up … Sweetoo sweeto can’t be metoo metoo after break up by man.” Reacting strongly to the user and claiming that he lifted the lines of Preity Zinta’s interview on MeToo movement, Sona wrote, “This disgusting line was plagiarised by this moron from an interview given by the silly, dim-witted, minion of patriarchy Priety Zinta, yesteryear decoration in films when asked about the @IndiaMeToo movement last year. The effect of celebrity culture & its sorry influence.” Also Read – Sona Mohapatra’s savage reply to a man who asked, ‘why all feminists have to show cleavage in order to compete with men’ is clap worthy

In her 2018 interview to Bollywood Hungama, when Preity was asked whether she has experienced harassment at her workplace, she had said, “No, I haven’t, I wish I had. At least then, I would have had an answer to tell you… No and that’s what I am saying that this is a very relevant question because people treat you the way you want to be treated.” She reportedly also said, “Aaj ki sweetu, kal ki metoo ho sakti hai, haha (Your sweetheart of today might just accuse you of sexual harassment tomorrow).”

Her views on the MeToo movement had not gone well with the netizens who trolled her massively for allegedly blaming the victim rather than the perpetrator. In her defense, Preity had claimed that her words were twisted while editing the interview. “Really sad to see how the interview is edited to trivialise and be insensitive. Not everything is traction & as someone being interviewed I expected decency & maturity from a journalist @iFaridoon. I did 25 interviews that day & only yours turned out edited like this #dissappointed,” she had tweeted.
