Not a “joke” @RandeepHooda . You notice no one makes “jokes” saying a male politician is too ugly to f***? You are doing what casteist, misogynist, insecure turds do when confronted with women whose strength they fear: attack the woman as unattractive. https://t.co/F4WsmDLbCw

What is more shocking is the utter confidence with which Randeep Hooda @RandeepHooda cracks this degenerate and vulgar casteist and sexist joke about Mayawati, one of the tallest leaders of the country. https://t.co/2XFRHasgT4
