But, while we were happy for Alia & Ranbir, we were heartbroken at what Deepika, who is Ranbir Kapoor’s ex had to go through. While many came forward to crack hurtful and sexist jokes on the Deepika-Ranveer.
Thankfully, some came forward and asked people to stop cracking regressive jokes.
Alia is pregnant, good for her. But stop putting down Deepika and Katrina for not having kids, stop valuing a woman and a couple based on when they are having kids! These jokes are not even funny, they are derogatory.
It is quite disgusting how people could be so toxic over the internet. These regressive and sexist jokes are not just demeaning to Deepika but to Ranveer too! Sadly, what these celebs went through is just the tip of the problem. Our society shames so many couples for not following the social norms for becoming parents. Dear Society, it is okay to follow your own path rather than treat life as a rat race. Stop treating parenthood as a race. Let people embark on this journey when they are ready. Not just because their peers or their ex or their neighbors have become parents!
