Actor, writer and director Bhagyaraj misogynistic comments against women rakes controversy.
Speaking at the music launch of his film Karuthukalai Pathivu Sei, Bhagyaraj made misogynistic and offensive comments about victims of sexual assault that were met with loud cheers by the audience.
Actor, writer, and filmmaker K Bhagyaraj’s offensive and misogynistic comments incurred the wrath of Twitter, with many demanding actions against him. At a music launch, he said that women were equally responsible for sexual crimes committed against them.
Speaking at the music launch of his upcoming film Karuthukalai Pathivu Sei on Monday, Bhagyaraj said, “Women create a situation that allows mistakes to happen. Things will be alright if you (women) behave correctly. You can’t always only blame boys.”
The event was being held in Bengaluru and Bhagyaraj’s distasteful comments were met with loud cheer and applause by the audience.
“Back in the day, there were certain restrictions on women. But with the inception of the telephone, those restrictions have gone. Women used to be within limits and were restrained until the advent of the mobile phone. It pains me to say this, but then, we find women whispering into their cell phones everywhere, even on roads. What they would talk, I wonder,” Bhagyraj further said.
The actor-director kept insisting that women can avoid such crimes, merely by restraining themselves. “We read in newspapers about a wife killing her husband, her baby to be with her lover. That’s why ladies should be in control. They should keep themselves in a limit. Self-regulate themselves,” he said.
Karuthugalai Pathivu Sei is said to be based on the Pollachi sexual assault. He also talked about the scam and said, “The boys are not the only ones responsible. You have a weakness and he has correctly used it. If what he did is a big mistake then you have also created an opportunity for that (to take place). That only is a very big mistake.”
Ppl were clapping for this? Is this the mentality that ppl appreciate? If u want to make males a victim in this than u can talk about sexual violence that men faced. However, not accepting ill behaviour isn’t right. Ppl get ganged rape in this world.#Bhagyaraj @imKBRshanthnu pic.twitter.com/5eVsYf7i7L— ѕ𝔀ஆ𝑔 (@api_sha) November 26, 2019
