Sonam Kapoor was body-shamed yet again for having small breasts and we do not find it funny. Shame on those who spew venom by body-shaming women.
It is that time of the year again when the beautiful city on the French Riviera lights up with movie stars and celebrities as they come together to celebrate films and more. Other than the critically acclaimed films that are screened during the festival, each year the Cannes film festival also showcases film stars walking the red carpet in their glitzy avatars.
Sonam Kapoor, who has been unanimously named as the most stylish person in the Hindi film industry, owing to her penchant for unique outfits that are a step ahead of fashion trends, is a regular at the Cannes film festival.
This year too, Sonam made an appearance at Cannes and it was all the more special as it was her first formal outing post her much talked about grand wedding to businessman, Anand Ahuja. While the foreign paparazzis were enamored by her henna clad hands, there were some who mercilessly body shamed her on twitter.
This is not the first time that Sonam has been body shamed. Earlier in November 2017, she was body shamed for a bikini video of hers that was shared by Swara Bhaskar. Haters went on to call her ‘flat’ and that she does not need to wear a bra.
‘Big’ or ‘Small’, how does it matter to you?
People who spewed venom by questioning the size of Sonam’s breasts, they ought to know that it is their mindset which needs enhancing. It is exhausting being a woman when people are on the look out to call you names owing to your size, colour and even religion. Earlier on, Fatima Sana Sheikh was shamed too when she posted a picture in a swimsuit during the auspicious month of Ramzan.
Sonam Kapoor has constantly been talking about how women ought to feel comfortable in their own skin. She recently penned an evocative piece about how young girls should not aim to look flawless and be comfortable in their skin, while pointing out that it needs a lot of effort to look the way she and other celebrities do.
So, it is quite ironical that she often falls prey to the lashes of parochial people for whom women are just a piece of flesh.
Body Shaming is Evil. Period.
Body shaming is appalling and ridiculous. All those social media veterans who sit behind their laptops gazing at women and shaming them for being too thin, too fat and what not, I think it is time they grow up. They fail to realize that by merely typing away mean comments, they are not just putting down female celebrities but in the long run they are being instrumental in creating false standards of beauty which would adversely affect young girls all over the world.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
