Mithali Raj Slut Shamed For Her Spaghetti Top. Cyber Bullying On The Rise World Over

Mithali Raj had won a number of hearts after she led India to the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup finals but for a few self-proclaimed moral policemen, her on-field record means nothing if they find her posing in an ‘objectionable’ manner, and they trolled and body-shamed the highest run-getter in women’s ODI cricket history.

On Tuesday, Mithali Raj was trolled for what she wore. A certain section of Twitteratis reacted to Mithali Raj’s recent picture where she was seen wearing a spaghetti top.

Mithali Raj Trolled

What seemed just like a simple picture upload with her colleagues, the moral police were objecting to her choice of clothes. And immediately they went on a rampage to point out that she didn’t dress ‘decently enough’.

They even started from telling her to take down the selfie to commenting on her dressing sense and quite frankly, they are beyond ridiculous.

 

 

 

 

 

This, however, isn’t the first time that Raj has been body-shamed though. She was shamed for her ‘sweaty armpits’.

Mithali Raj Trolled - sweaty armpits

She was at an inaugurating a cricket centre in Bengaluru and it seemed to be a lovely moment until certain Twitteratis stated that she was sweating (at her armpit) while posing for the photo.

However, there were others as well who defended her choice and voiced their opinion in favour of Raj.

 

 

 

In this tech savvy world where all of us are always hooked on to the internet, it is not new for us to see people trolling each other on social media. Cyber bullying also is something that we are all aware of and witness on a daily basis.

The ‘Dabangg’ girl Sonakshi Sinha has always emerged with befitting replies to her body shamers. She has been constantly pestered by questions about her earlier overweight body type. On being asked about the issue of body shaming in the media and the glamor industry, she gave an apt reply.

It’s absolutely shameful. Today if anybody has been targeted for being a certain way, it’s me. But I don’t let it get to me. I know what is more important is that I project a healthy body image for girls who look up to me.

Tomorrow if I become skinny, what’s the point? I won’t be able to work well. I’ll fall sick all the time. I know that’s not my body structure, not my body type. I’ve worked very hard to look the way I look today. I used to weigh 95 kilos. What more do you want from me?
