Hardik Pandya controversy is not ending any time soon. The cricketer came to the popular chat show Koffee With Karan, hosted by Karan Johar and got candid. His comments have been labeled sexist and misogynist. He and KL Rahul, who was there with him in the show have been suspended by the BCCI. They were brutally trolled and now there is a ‘Hardik Pandya slam poem’ going viral on social media.
Former Bigg Boss contestant and actor Priya Malik recently performed a slam poem titled ‘Dear Mr Player’. She has targeted the alleged misogynist and sexist remarks made by the cricket player in the show and the poem is going viral.
Have you heard the poem? The hard-hitting poem talks about the statements the player made in the show and asked the ‘boys’ to man-up. Slamming the players she said that the ‘score’ on and off the field is not measured by ‘yeh’, ‘yeh’ aur ‘yeh’ but how they inspire the youth today. Watch the poem here:
Priya shared the poem on her twitter account and the netizens were all in support of the words she said. The poem is going viral and has garnered the views in agreement.

Some also thought that the slamming is going overboard and Hardik’s remarks were not sexist.
Idiot, when others give u lesson on sanskaar then u scream saying my choice to express etc.Pandya said “mein karke aaya”.So what’s misogyny or sexist in that.Did he demean anyone by naming her?
Anything for limelight.
Kuch kaam dhaam karo nalle log.

Hotstar has taken down the controversial episode. And now this poem against the ‘sexist’ remarks. What is your opinion about the whole case?
