Racial Abuse against Shilpa Shetty
Recently, you might have seen that Shilpa Shetty and Celebrity Big Brother have been in the news for all the bad reasons. Shilpa Shetty has been racialy abused as you know. Here is a video of an arguement between Shilpa and a fellow inmate (if you may call her so). Apart from the video, there have been various other videos showing Shilpa beingÂ calledÂ aÂ dog,Â aÂ filthyÂ IndianÂ andÂ otherÂ suchÂ crudeÂ remarks.Â SheÂ hasÂ also been teased for her Indian accent. Is this what these foreigners think of us Indians? I know that many are unhappy about losing their jobs to outsourcing to Indians, but is this the way to retaliate? Apparently, there have been more than 14,500 complaints about this to Ofcom, the UK TV regulator. Shilpa Shetty’s family has also issued a statement about the controversy saying, “We as a family are overwhelmed and touched by the outpour of public support for Shilpa not just in India, but from across the globe, in light of recent events in the show Celebrity Big Brother. Shilpa is a strong individual who continues to make us proud every day. We do not condone in any form bullying or victimisation of anyone or a group of people.”Indians are no ‘dogs’. If its anybody thats a dog, its the people who actually involve in racial abuse. What a crude behaviour. What are your views people? I for one am quite frustrated.
