When Deepika Attacked TOI
This was epic! D-Pad made the front-page when a leading media house issued a video of hers with the headline: “OMG! Deepika Padukone’s cleavage show” on their website.
To this, D-Pad used Twitter to question the media house, that she is a woman, has cleavage and whether they had a problem with that. Ouch! Bollywood and her fans came out in support and lashed at the media house for objectifying her.
Things turned unpleasant when TOI wrote a pretentious open letter to Deepika to cover their backside but D-Pad was too angry to forgive and answered with an open letter and shut them up. Deepika was certainly applauded for her courage to go against the leading media house and certainly won our hearts.
