Masaba Gupta’s Tight Slap To The Haters Who Called Her A ‘Bastard’, Sonam Kapoor Comes In Support

The Supreme Court on October 9 temporarily banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR for Diwali this year. The judgment, which was pronounced to keep Diwali pollution-free in the city, received mixed reviews from the people on social media. The decision divided the people in their opinions. Many celebrities also took to twitter to share their views on the same. However, someone’s reaction that caught everyone’s eye was of none other than celebrity designer Masaba Gupta.

Designer Masaba Gupta Mantena, daughter of actor Neena Gupta and West Indies cricketer Viv Richards, had tweeted in support of the firecracker ban. Her tweet received a lot of flak on social media.  The designer was sarcastically trolled and was called ‘illegitimate West Indian’ and ‘b*stard child’.

A glimpse into haters low and ignoble words against Masaba Gupta

Not staying quiet, the designer wrote a dignified post in response. Read out full post below:

“Recently I retweeted in support of the Firecracker ban by the Supreme Court and like every other issue in this country, big or small…The trolling & bashing began.

By calling me names like ‘bastard child’ or ‘illegitimate West Indian’ it only makes my chest swell with pride. I am the illegitimate product of two of the MOST legitimate personalities you’ll find & I’ve made the best life, both personally & professionally…out of it which I am proud of.

I’ve been called these names since I was 10years old & ever since I could read the newspapers these are two words that I am immune to.

My legitimacy comes from the work I do & what my contribution to the society has been. And you can try but you will not be able to raise a single finger on either of the two.

So, please.if you must…go ahead and continue calling me these names if it makes you feel glorious. But know this…I am a proud Indo-Caribbean girl who doesn’t know how to shrink and crumble in shame of something you or your society cannot handle. It’s Just in my ‘illegitimate’ genes.”
