New Delhi: Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda has invited the wrath of angry netizens upon himself as recently, a video of him making a ‘dirty joke’ on politician Mayawati surfaced online.

In the video, Randeep is seen sitting on stage and talking to the audience. He announces to everyone that he’s going to make a ‘dirty joke’ and sets the premise for it with politician Mayawati as the subject.

He said, “I think I’ll tell a very dirty joke. It’s a sex position for god’s sake. We’re taking it too seriously. There was Ms. Mayawati, she’s walking along the street with two kids, two boys and there was a man like our man here.”

“He asked her, ‘are they twins?’, she said, ‘no, no, no, he’s 4 and he’s 8’. He says – I can’t believe someone’s been there twice”, Hooda said. The actor essentially made fun of the politician’s attractiveness by questioning her romantic life.

Twitter users called the joke ‘sexist’ and ‘casteist’ and slammed Hooda for making the offensive joke. People also called him privileged and biased towards Dalits.

One of the users said, “if this does not explain how casteist and sexist this society is, especially towards dalit women, i don’t know what will. the “joke”, the audacity, the crowd. randeep hooda, top bollywood actor talking about a dalit woman, who has been the voice of the oppressed.”
