Vivek dropped from charity event over tweet

Actor Vivek Oberoi on Tuesday apologised for sharing a meme on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's private existence after serious complaint on social media and in different places, but that lower little ice with a charity organisation that dropped him from a fund-raising match.

Oberoi, who gained a notice from the National Commission for Women soliciting for an cause of sharing the insulting and misogynistic tweet, also deleted the arguable submit.

The actor on Monday shared a meme with three panels, one featuring him, some other with Salman Khan and a third with Aishwarya's husband Abhishek and daughter Aaradhya.
The meme used to be a take at the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the result of which will likely be declared on Thursday.
"Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls. I can't even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever," he tweeted.

"Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies.. tweet deleted," the actor added.

But the Smile Foundation used to be unimpressed.

"In view of the recent development related to Mr Vivek Anand Oberoi's social media posts, Smile Foundation disassociates itself with the celebrity for the fundraising event on Odisha Fani Cyclone relief at DLF Promenade. We as an organisation stand for women empowerment and his statements are not in line with our belief statement," the organisation said in observation.

Social media users, together with participants of the movie fraternity, blasted the actor for sharing one thing that used to be distasteful and crass.

Oberoi, who is recently selling a biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, used to be first of all adamant that individuals had been unnecessarily politicising the issue.

"Someone sent me a creative meme where I was being made fun of. I just wrote, 'Ha ha,' and appreciated the other person. When someone makes fun of you, you should laugh and not take it so seriously. I even wrote there that there's nothing political about it. It's life and such things happen in life that you are with someone and then you move on in life," he said soon after the debate broke on Monday.

The U-turn came tomorrow.

Praising himself for running towards empowering 2,000 underprivileged girls in the closing one decade, the actor said he could never factor of being disrespectful to any lady ever whilst issuing an apology.
