Uorfi Javed labelled author Chetan Bhagat a “pervert” after he claimed that teenage Indian boys were getting distracted by her risqué outfits.
She also shared Chetan’s leaked WhatsApp messages that surfaced during the #MeToo movement.
At an event, Chetan said: “Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels.
“Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is… What will you do with her photos?
“Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits?”
The author’s comments angered Uorfi and she took to her Instagram Stories to criticise him.
In a series of notes, Uorfi said: “Men like him will always blame the women (rather) than accepting their own shortcomings.
“Just because you’re a pervert doesn’t mean it’s the girl’s fault or what is she wearing.
“Unnecessarily dragging me into a conversation, commenting on how my clothes are distracting young boys is such as f****d thing to say.
“You messaging girls isn’t a distraction for them, Chetan Bhagat?”
