Does Bollywood degrade women? From Bachchan to Emraan Hashmi are the acts demeaning? Tell us.
The petition filed by one Kalpana Misra via Change.org has appealed for a ban on the Punjabi rapper's New Year's eve performance at a Gurgaon hotel on Monday.
“These pornographic lyrics are unacceptable and it is because of women-hating sentiments like these that men think that it's fine to do what they did on that bus, that December night in Delhi.
“Let's put a stop to these subversive lyrics that infiltrate the minds of people who don't know better and who then justify to themselves the rightness of a crime that harms another human being, sometimes so severely that they lose their lives,” the petition stated.
When contacted, the Bristol hotel said they will go ahead with the performance as scheduled and that they were not aware of any such petition.
The rapper was unavailable for comment.
Honey Singh raps mostly in a mix of English and Punjabi and has lent his voice to recent Bollywood films like 'Khiladi 786', 'Cocktail' and 'Luv Shuv Te Chicken Khurana'.
Outrage against the rapper and his derogatory songs have been pouring on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter for the past few days.
yo yo honey singh is the best in this world.
Stop bad singing. Manu from switzerland.
His attitude is misogynistic and degrading towards women and people like him should be sent for counselling since they can be a threat to society.
What ban? He is getting the attension because we as a society like those dirty lirics.. otherwise nobody would known him.. His vulgar lyrics are the redlections of our minds & not the other way around..
