Preity Zinta Slams A Journalist; Claims Her #MeToo Statement Was Subjected To Controversial Editing

    |

    Ever since Tanushree Dutta broke her silence on facing sexual harassment at the hands of Nana Patekar on the sets of a film, several #MeToo stories started pouring in from various nooks and corners from the industry. Several B-town celebrities even spoke about their thoughts on this movement. Preity Zinta who is currently making a comeback with her film Bhaiaji Superhit after a short hiatus, too was asked about her take on this movement.

    Unfortunately, her video interview didn't go down well with a section of netizens who slammed her for mocking the victims with her insensitive remarks. Soon, Preity took to her Twitter handle to share her version and lashed out at the journalist for editing her interview on Me Too Movement in a controversial way-

    In a Bollywood Hungama video, Preity is seen saying, "It's important that women use it for the right thing because there are men and women that would use their position and power for their advantage but I do feel bad when women are using it when it's not that serious or for personal vendetta or publicity.

    There is a very small percentage of women that are using it and they are diluting the movement but there are also women being in the industry there are so many stories.

    This me too movement, if its this much in the film industry, it's that much in every other industry. Having said that, the film industry is one of the most safest places, there's about the most decent people I have ever worked with. So I feel really bad when people say this industry is really bad.

    Replying to one of the tweets, she wrote, "No I did not say that about sexual survivors but about my self & I also stated that with success people treat u differently & I was privileged as I got successful earlier. This is nothing but controversial editing & u passing judgement is uncalled & unnecessary."
