It was only a couple of days ago when Twinkle had to bear a lot of flak for comparing the tax on sanitary napkins with that on Viagra. In a statement at her recent interview with BBC London during her visit to the Oxford, she had said that Viagra is tax free but sanitary napkins are taxed because “policies are made by 65 year old men with erectile dysfunction. She had also tweeted the statement that took no time to go viral.

Eventually, she had to face a lot of anger from Twitteratis as well. Take a look at some responses to her statement and the tweet:

Doubting Twinkle’s intelligence:

 

Informing her of govt. schemes:

 

 

Offering advice:

 

 

Getting personal! Not done!

 

 

He has a valid point!

 

 

 

A day after she was criticized by thousands of people on social media as well as outside, Twinkle came up with a clarification of her statement on her Twitter page. In the tweet, she posted a snippet from her interview with BBC London. In the clip, she can be heard saying that not only in India, but in many other parts of the world, including many states across America, Viagra is tax free but tampons are taxed because policies are made by 65 year old men with erectile dysfunction. You can watch the snippet in her tweet below:



 

 

Soon after Twinkle tweeted the clip, Twitter users started responding to it. Here is what they had to say:

Ab samajh aya!

 

Absolutely correct:

 

 

Exactly!

 

 

Supporting Twinkle:

Well, there is no doubt that the fact about taxes and sanitary napkins she gave was true but the way she portrayed policy makers was offensive. Saying the same thing in context of other countries of the world neither makes it less offensive or more ethical! Do you think she is doing all this to garner publicity for her film? share your views with us in comments!
