Salman Khan forces a child to hug Jacqueline Fernandez.
Netizens criticized Salman and Jacqueline for this behaviour.
Remember how the famous singer Papon had to exit a reality show for kissing a minor girl backstage?
However, he defended himself by saying that his actions were innate parental affection without any malicious intent, but the damage was irreparable, and everyone trolled the singer.
Race 3 actors Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez are in the news for a similar controversy now. The actors are promoting their upcoming action thriller with full zeal. After promoting their movie before the finale party of IPL, they attended a reality show 'Dance Deewane', judged by Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit.
Jacqueline then shared a video of her and Salman Khan from the show, captioned"Kids usually love me, this boy was an exception.. at least I got my hug at the end".
In the video, we can see Salman asking a child to hug Jacqueline, but he denied by saying no.
Later, Salman forced the child to hug Jacqueline twice. Although the people present on the show thought the act was cute and completely harmless, netizens thought otherwise. This act by Salman received a lot of criticism on social media.
Check out how people on Twitter reacted to this act:
@BeingSalmanKhan @Asli_Jacqueline If a kid repeatedly says he doesn't want to hug you, shouldn't you probably respect his wishes and consent and mind your own business and understand simple "NO" https://t.co/AyBLikaCnM #WeToo #Metoomovement— Tanya Chaitanya (@girlmeetstartup) May 29, 2018
So @Asli_Jacqueline put up this video today https://t.co/yhWcsP3tBN— Shikha (@TheCommanist) May 28, 2018
Salman Khan practically coerces a little boy on a reality show (who says he does not want to hug her) into giving her a hug. Infuriating!
Kid of 5 or 6 says he doesn’t want to hug Jacqueline Fernandez. Celeb panel laughs. “Aise kaise?” Repeatedly he says he doesn’t feel like hugging her. Body language suggests same. Salman Khan forces him to hug her. Forces him to “tightly hug her” once again. Consent be damned. https://t.co/UPd9RfI0mD— Rituparna Chatterjee (@MasalaBai) May 29, 2018
