Hindi movie actress Sonam Kapoor placed herself in controversies after criticizing humanitarian and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Sonam Kapoor criticized Sri Sri’s comment on homosexuality while addressing a lecture in JNU, Delhi.
During Sri Sri’s lecture at JNU, a student asked him how he should handle the way his friends and family treated him for his sexual orientation. The guru answered him, “You don’t think you are sick or something is wrong with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you, I’ve seen many men who were gay later turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal, who are called straight people, end up being gay later in life.”
Sonam Kapoor lashed out at Sri Sri and schooled him about homosexuality in a series of tweets and called him a moron. At the same time, Sri Sri’s supporters jumped into the debate and slammed the actress for her choice of words used against the spiritual leader in her Twitter rant.
Another user called her foolish for reacting in such a way to a news report. Another user requested Sonam to say sorry to Sri Sri for misquoting his statements out of context while the other told the actress to not judge a book by its cover by posting a video link to Sri Sri’s full speech at JNU.
