A day after Sonam Kapoor was trolled on Twitter for tweeting about the meat ban in Mumbai, actress Sonakshi Sinha has suffered the same fate when she referred to India as ‘Ban-istan’ for the controversial decision.
Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, has proposed a four-day ban on the slaughter and sale of meat in the city, in respect for the Jain festival of fasting.
Sinha, who is in Budapest shooting for Force 2, got wind of the ban of meat in Mumbai and tweeted, “This is a free country! Welcome to BAN-istan… I meant india.. Stupid autocorrect.”
And while Sonakshi didn’t make any blunders like Sonam, who mistakenly linked misogyny and the meat ban in her tweet, she was given the same treatment by Twitter trolls, some of whom even resorted to fat-shaming the actress.
