Badminton player Parupalli Kashyap took to Twitter on Monday to express his disappointment over the comments made by Siddharth about his wife and ace shuttler Saina Nehwal. It is all known knowledge that Saina Nehwal tweeted, "No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists. #BharatStandsWithModi #PMModi." To this tweet, Siddharth reacted and said, "Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. Shame on you #Rihanna."
Many netizens criticised Siddharth for his tweet. Later, Siddharth reacted via tweet and wrote, "COCK & BULL. That’s the reference. Reading otherwise is unfair and leading! Nothing disrespectful was intended, said, or insinuated. Period."
Parupalli Kashyap, while tagging Siddharth in a tweet on Monday, wrote: "This is upsetting for us express ur opinion but choose better words man. I guess u thought it was cool to say it this way. #notcool #disgraceful."
On the other hand, Rekha Sharma, chairperson of the National Commission for Women (NCW) has written to Twitter India to immediately block actor Siddharth's Twitter account. In her letter, she said that the comments made by Siddharth are "misogynist and outrageous".
