Actress Preity zinta comments on Metoo movement turns into controversy, As part of an interview, She was asked a question "Have you faced sexual abuse?" she replied "I did not face sexual abuse in my career, If that happens to me, I would have an answer and also she added it depends upon behavior of women and others. MeToo movement is misleading, some women are using it as a tool for personal vendetta and publicity rather than something which would expose molesters". When she speaks about 'MeeToo' movement, she laughs. This led to the criticism from netizens on her style. Reacting immediately to the matter, Preeti responded that the interview was not edited properly and my words are misinterpreted she said.
However she has shared a long post on her social media account to clarify her Metoo comments. The post is as follows, From the beginning, I support the MeToo movement. Unfortunately, my words were misinterpreted. In an interview, meaning for the word If I was harassed I would have reacted immediately and slapped the person. The reason I was smiling in the interview was that it’s an interview & I was doing movie promotions.
I spoke many times about women's rights and I'm now feeling sorry for the explanation. Women in the future want to be more confident. If women do not support each other then there is no movement.
