Buzzfeed addressed Time of India as ‘A Sexual Harasser’ in Newspaper form


It seems like one of the major national media has put our country into the hall of shame by displaying the upskirt image of Kate Middleton, (Catherine Elizabeth)  Duchess of Cambridge, on her recent trip to India. This incident has taken a very ugly turn in media with lots of criticism thrown towards the national daily by the national and international media. The twitter is full of criticizing remarks.

[su_expand more_text=”READ MORE” less_text=” ” height=”0″ hide_less=”yes” link_style=”button” link_align=”center”] The Hindustan Times called it ‘The ugly truth behind our obsession with Kate Middleton’s skirt’ mentioning that “In the first two days that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, visited India, she played football on the streets of Mumbai, laughing ruefully when a kick went awry. She looked on, intrigued, as her husband tried to cook a dosa for the first time. She wielded a cricket bat, her face glowing with the joy of hitting a perfect six. She cut a cake with a sword and knelt on the steps of a water tank. She drew pictures with street children and mourned for terror attack victims. And yet, the photo chosen for the front page of some papers across the country was of her caught in an awkward half-crouch.”

The BUZZFEED.COM written that “How convenient to have toilet paper delivered to our homes every morning. It’s been a while since the Catcallers of India has unnecessarily attacked a woman but fans of sexual harassment do not despair. Simply take a glance at this story on the front page of today’s New Delhi edition.  That’s right. Front and centre on our nation’s most widely circulated English-language daily, in our national capital: a hint of an upskirt.”

The Buzzfeed writes further writes that “Let’s just recap for one second. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was PAYING RESPECTS TO SLAIN INDIAN SOLDIERS at the Amar Jawan Jyoti yesterday. She was literally paying tribute to soldiers who died defending India. And, in that quiet, peaceful, somber moment, our daily distributed national toilet paper saw this. That’s right. Take a deep breath. Take it all in. This is the world we live in now. The world where the riveting process of wind touching a woman’s skirt gets front-page coverage.”
