Jim Sarbh and Kangana Ranaut are such actors of our Bollywood Industry who were immensely respected by fans for quite a lot of reasons. However, the fans who looked up to them, got a rude shock when a video recently emerged of Jim making a rather distasteful rape joke, while Kangana laughed.
Kangana Ranaut is known to be a devoted feminist. Hence, when a video of her laughing at a rape joke emerged, netizens were appalled. The incident took place on the sidelines of the Cannes International Film Festival.
Jim is heard cracking a rather offensive and insensitive joke. “I’d rather be raped by 12 prostitutes than touch alcohol and the Punjabi says ‘Me too, I didn’t know that was an option”. The joke had Kangana and the rest of the party in splits.
Watch the video here:
Kangana is one of the few actresses in Bollywood who is known for her hard-core feminism. And Incidentally in the past, when Salman Khan had infamously compared the grueling shoot of Sultan to rape, Kangana had condemned it saying, “We all agree that it is a horrible thing to say; it is something which is extremely insensitive”.
Now that Jim and Kangana’s callous joke is out there and already a viral thing on social media… The Internet is all furious on their ‘insensitivity’ and ‘hypocrisy’ and the Twitterati took it to Twitter to show their rage.
Here, have a look:
Kangs is A+ grade hypocrite (nothing new) and this Jim Sarbh turned out to be a piece of shit. Rape jokes are not okay… stfu ..??

Dear Jim Sarbh/ Kangana Ranaut
Rape jokes are not funny. Rape is NOT a joke. If you tell or laugh at jokes about rape you are a part of the problem. https://t.co/Pk5bSB9zCr

According to one of Jim Sarbh’s representative, those controversial lines were spoken during the rehearsal for a play in his private space and that his comments were misconstrued.
