Author Chetan Bhagat and Uorfi Javed are engaged in a social media battle after the renowned novelist took a jibe at the Bigg Boss star for distracting young people. Chetan Bhagat headed to Twitter on Monday to give a clarification about the leaked WhatsApp chats that have been shared by Uorfi Javed from the time he was involved in the Me Too controversy.
Chetan took to Twitter and wrote Have never spoken to/chatted with/met/ known someone where it’s being spread that I have done so. It’s fake. a lie. Also a Non-issue. Haven’t criticised anyone. And I also think there’s nothing wrong in telling people to stop wasting time on Instagram and focus on fitness and career.
The social media spat between the two started after Chetan Bhagat took a dig at Uorfi Javed in an event. He said Boys are liking photos of women, and commenting on them. Uorfi Javed’s pictures garner crores of likes. On one side, there is an Indian youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.
Reacting to this, 25-year-old Javed took to her Instagram story and called Chetan Bhagat a pervert. She wrote Men like him will always blame women than accepting their own shortcomings. Just because you’re a pervert doesn’t mean it’s the girl’s fault or what is she wearing. Unnecessarily dragging me in a conversation, commenting on how my clothes are distracting young boys is such as f***ed thing to say. You messaging girls isn’t a distraction for them? @chetanbhagat.
In another story, she asked the author not to promote rape culture. She wrote Stop promoting rape culture you sickos out there. Blaming women’s clothes for the behaviour of men is so 80s Mr. @chetanbhagat. Who was distracting you when you messaged girls half of your age? Always blame the opposite gender, and never accept your own shortcomings or faults. People like you are misguiding the youth, not me. Encouraging men to put the blame on the women or their clothing when are at fault.
