Sona Mohapatra, a vocal feminist who doesn't hold back from expressing her views on the industry, took to Twitter on Wednesday to take a jibe at actress Preity Zinta. The singer was expressing her views on the recent developments on the MJ Akbar case in which the journalist and former minister has been accused of sexual harassment. 

On Wednesday, Sona hit back at a netizen who used actress Preity Zinta's 'Sweetu, Metoo' reference from an old 2018 interview while replying to a tweet. 

It all started when Sona tweeted, "Are all the other women who have come forward to give their statements regarding the reprehensible behaviour of Mr MJ Akbar also lying?Why would they?Some laddoos coming their way going through the harrowing process of dealing with this nebulous aspect of the lopsided power play?" 

Commenting on this, a Twitter user said, "@mjakbar case let the court speak up ... Sweetoo sweeto can't be metoo metoo after break up by man." 

Catching this netizen's reference, Sona slammed the user and even took a dig at Preity Zinta for her callous remark back then. The singer wrote, "This disgusting line was plagiarised by this moron from an interview given by the silly, dim-witted, minion of patriarchy Priety Zinta, yesteryear decoration in films when asked about the @IndiaMeToo movement last year. The effect of celebrity culture & its sorry influence." 

Take a look at Sona Mohapatra's tweets below: 

Preity Zinta had faced some serious backlash for her 2018 comment. Speaking to Bollywood Hungama then, the actress was asked if she had ever faced harassment in her place of work. Replying to this, she had said, "I wish I too had (a #MeToo experience) so I’d have an answer to tell you… Aaj ki sweetu, kal ki MeToo ho sakti hai!" The actress has expressed her disappointment over the criticism and blamed the portal for editing the interview 'insensitively'.

Bollywood is nothing more than a shiny wh_re house. I’m not blaming the victim- if you get harassed then that is wrong. But to get ahead in this toxic cheap place you HAVE to eff your way to the top (& this goes for men too). Any girl or guy from a sane family should know better than to waste their youth & dignity in this useless profession. What have these so-called singers & actors given the country besides trashy content & propaganda? At least even corporate workers are helping run the economy.

Preity is a moron. Most BW are ok with the sick culture coz they have benefited from it and they don’t care about outsiders if they are harassed.
