Aishwarya Rai has been on the receiving end of some of the most unkind, hurtful criticism of her career this year thanks to her post-baby figure, and now some in the media are saying that she deserves it.
Up to now even the worst of her critics--websites and newspapers looking only to provoke--have couched their comments in "helpful" language, claiming they're only looking out for what's best for her, that they're worried about her career, etc etc. But now a truly idiotic editorial has appeared that essentially says that Aishwarya only has herself to blame for the media coverage she's been getting, because she (gasp!) alluded to Kareena Kapoor's famous "size zero" identity in a comment...last month.
Aishwarya's comments were in response to a question about whether she was bothered by her new weight. She responded kindly, saying that she'd never been particularly thin before having her daughter Aaradhya. "I've never been one who endorsed size zero" were her exact words. Kareena Kapoor is, of course, the actress who made the tiny dress size all the rage.
So apparently this innocuous comment means that Aishwarya deserves to be scorned by the media? Because she once indirectly mentioned how slender and fit another actress was? What absolute rubbish.
Of course the editorial should be ignored completely, if not for that crazy reasoning then for its main point, which is that Abhishek Bachchan, who angrily defended his wife against the worst of her critics, should "take a chill pill."
Honestly, any opinion-maker who thinks ridiculing a man for standing up and defending his wife's honor is ok should be laughed out of their job. Attacks like theirs are low, even for tabloid papers.
