Bigg Boss 11: Priyank Sharma trolled for his sexist comments toward Arshi Khan

Priyank Sharma was trolled on social media for his sexist and hypocritical comments toward Arshi during the weekly task yesterday night. The Gharwalas were supposed to be playing a task, in which two opposing parties had to present their cases to the judges for a divorce, but as it usually happens, the task got out of Control and soon the contestants were lobbing personal accusation on Arshi’s character, who was playing Hiten’s wife. Priyank told the judges that Arshi acts in a provocative manner, unnecessarily touching him, and had once tried to tear her clothes for the camera. His comments were taken very seriously by the audience, and he was slammed for being a hypocrite because he’s always showing off his body in a provocative manner, so that people will praise him.

This is a case of tone deafness on part of Priyank, who stepped out of line to target a woman when he himself is ready to flaunt his body for publicity and eye balls. Whatever Arshi does, and most of it is dismissed as teasing is her choice, and he is no one to judge her for that. But Priyank has previously shown to have sexist view toward Arshi during their fights, he was ready to spit on her. Whereas other contestants have shown to be very provocative, like Puneesh and Bandgi, and Priyank and Benafsha himself, his comments are not only gross, but they’re also an example of how a woman is blamed if she behaves in a manner that is even a little out of the norm.

It is yet to be seen if this fight is going to have any consequence on the show, but outside, the audience is really angry with Priyank’s behaviour.
