From Tanmay Bhat to Rakhi Sawant, Donald Trump: Meet the 'poster children' for outrage
Meet these repeat offenders in the outrage department, or more specifically, the 'poster children' for inflaming rage
When you have an entire edition dedicated to outrage, how could we not have a photo gallery of the outrageous? These are the people in the news who — for better or worse — are either outraging or causing outrage, about or among all and sundry. They're what we call repeat offenders in the outrage department, or more specifically, 'poster children' for inflaming rage. Take a look at our list, and see if it matches your own:
Because the driver did it. Because the black bucks shot themselves. There is a constant battle between people who think Salman Khan's antics are outrageous and Bhai bhakts who outrage against these people. It's either outrage against Bhai or outrage against the outrage against Bhai. The whole nation has picked a side, which one are you on?
The nation's near collective consensus is that our Central Board of Film Certification chief Pahlaj Nahlani needs to grow up. Nihalani's belief that Indian films cannot showcase sex or drug use in Indian films is as outdated as the Cinematograph Act that governs film certification here. He's made enemies of filmmakers, and enemies of fans of those filmmakers. And we presume, somewhere, there is a very angry James Bond, fuming over his kiss being cut short.
You know how some people can do no wrong? Well, Tanmay Bhat can apparently do no right. The comedian, of All India Bakchod fame, is constantly on the radar of those willing to be outraged. From his viral Snapchat video which featured Bhat mimicking Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar, to a crack about Priyanka Chopra's accent — Bhat's spent more than his fair share of time in the sights of the outrage-happy.
Perhaps someone would go after Kamaal R Khan's misogynist tweets instead?
Rakhi Sawant has mastered the art of being outrageous. So when she stopped out for a recent Independence Day event in the Us wearing a black cocktail dress embellished with strategically positioned photos of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we weren't all that surprised.
A picture says a thousand words.
"Why would anyone hate me Ma?"
"Because you are you Rahul, you fall asleep in Parliament."
Arnab Goswami and Barkha Dutt
Arnab Goswami loves to outrage against people and people love to outrage against him. It's a match made in heaven. Then there's 'Bark'ha Dutt. Recently both journos had a spat that had the blood pressure levels of those witnessing it, on the rise.
Everybody loves to hate on Taylor Swift. Because she's successful. She is young. She is rich. Also because she is a woman. Oh, ad maybe because of all that excessive PDA with current beau Tom 'Loki' Hiddleston. From the numerous articles and discussion threads dedicated to her choice of boyfriends to being shamed by Kimye (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) over those in-Famous lyrics, Swift has been drawing a lot of flak.
Because — why would you not outrage against someone as outrageous as Donald Trump?
