You may remember this past week when the Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra was in Germany. The Indian public shamed her for showing too much skin. Since it poses as disrespectful for Indians to meet the prime minister in a midi dress.
However, this week, public outrage has found a new prey – Deepika Padukone.
Tabloids and internet commentators quickly started weighing in on her latest photo shoot for Maxim magazine.
The Bajirao Mastani actress flaunted a white two piece in the picture she shared on her social media pages.
Soon after she uploaded the picture, negative comments started flowing in. Tabloids targeted her skin color and fat-shamed her.
The heated exchange quickly escalated after an Instagram user wrote to Padukone, “What is she wearing? Looks like diapers (sic).”
Another user commented, “You are my favorite actress and huge fan of yours…..but this one is worst pic of you ma’am…sorry.”
In response, a Deepika Padukone fan account replied, “hott hott! Haters gonna hate! Slay!”
Twitterati, too, went on to teach the global icon on how to not dress.
Tryna wear something classy !!! Hope u learn something from Sonam Kapoor

Don't be a porn star. don't destroy your admiration which India has.
Reaching a level of dislike from an icon, is not a path to be followed!
