Looks like singer and dubbing artist Chinmayi Sripadi is ever ready to jump into any feminist issue that comes her way and voice her opinion. She recently went into a social media battle and criticized a Swigger delivery guy for asking the customer to cover her upper body with a dupatta.
Going into the details, a Tamil women took to Twitter and expressed her displeasure over a delivery boy asking her to cover her body in her own house. She tagged Swiggy’s Twitter handle and wrote, “@swiggy_in can your employees mind their own business? One of your delivery persons asked me to put on a shawl coming to my own house. Why does it matter? Do we have to teach manners to them? Why are these f**kers entitled to tell us how we dress? That too in my own house.”
She was heavily trolled and criticized for her tweet on social media and that women told them that she would block everyone who is making fun this. Then comes Chinmayi to her rescue and ranting that, “Men who need to stare at women’s breasts…Doesn’t look like they got weaned from breastfeeding properly.” Then, trolls started pouring in and she answered them in the comments section saying, “The kind of responses for the tweet on a woman wearing a shawl – if you understand/ read Tamizh, should give you an idea of how things are around here. Some believe a woman not wearing a Dupatta = nudity and invitation to rape. Of course Twitter doesnt find this tweet abusive.”
Not stopping there, she went on tweeting and said, “The pathetic problem is how this man justifies a swiggy delivery man advising a woman to wear a Dupatta is ‘decent’ and asks the ‘aunty’ to be grateful he was decent. For a delivery person – A house that he /she /they deliver to is a Workplace for the delivery person. Just like your home is the Workplace for your cleaning staff, driver, chef, courier delivery agents or other working professionals.”
This is becoming common nowadays where Chinmayi is expressing her opinion on everything and making a big issue out of it. Let us see how far this one goes.
