Recently a twitter user questioned Barkha Dutt if she would interview Sushmita Sen on Trump’s misogynistic remarks against another former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. Here’s what she had to say.
That US presidential nominee Donald Trump is a racist, misogynist, and a corrupt businessman is not a surprise to us anymore. However, the more we come across several facets of his character, the more we’re apprehensive about the future of the world, if such a man becomes the president of the United States.
Here is a campaign video from Hillary Clinton, which contains a compiled list of abuses (not exhaustive, mind you!) that Trump has hurled at women so far on several occasions. These include the terms such as: ‘fat’, ‘ugly face’, ‘slob’, ‘she ate like a pig’, ‘a person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10’.
A few days back, the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump took place, where among other similar issues, Clinton spoke about Trump’s body shaming of 1996 Miss Universe Alicia Machado. Trump had allegedly called Machado Miss Piggy after she gained a few pounds post the contest.
Here is a video where Alicia Machado speaks about how Trump, apart from insulting and body shaming her in public, had also threatened to take away her crown.
Following Hillary’s mention about Trump’s attitude towards Machado, a Twitter user asked Barkha Dutt whether she plans to interview former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen about Trump.
Sushmita Sen’s awesome reply to this once again proved why she is a rock star!
Donald Trump bought the operating company, Miss Universe Inc. in 1996 while Sushmita was crowned Miss Universe in 1994. We all know how Sushmita Sen is a role model for strong, independent women and in this one Tweet she made it clear what she thinks of Trump and his misogynistic mindset.

I am someone who believes in honesty and trust, I trust people easily and I think most of the times this habit of mine turns into bane.
This is a story of how a matrimonial website service turned into a nightmare for me, already traumatized by the two relationships I’ve had. It’s a story for every woman who lives her life on the principles of honesty and trust.
This can have a drastic effect on other victims of domestic violence. It will also encourage the abuser that they can now threaten their victim that he/she may end up like Amber Heard on the internet.
The lives of actors, be they from Hollywood or Bollywood, trouble my peace. Though they are worshipped by their fans, the real-life of many is quite troubled. It is scary to see what money and fame can do to a person. These are the people who have made me realize that fame and money are not that important.
I usually try to avoid reading about actors and their lives but there is no escape when the internet gets flooded with news and you come across it again and again as it happened with Aryan Khan’s arrest, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, or now Amber Heard v/s Johnny Depp case.
We clearly see the pattern of uncivilized society in the above-mentioned cases where the mass verdict is passed even before the jury or judge passes the sentence. Usually, there is no middle ground for these people who are just there to make a topic trending on the internet. One is black and the other is white, there are no shades of grey for these modern-day witch hunters.
