(Photo: IANS) Sonam Kapoor draws flak for '3rd world nation' post on TwitterKnown for being vocal about her opinions on social media, actress Sonam Kapoor drew Twitterati’s ire when she called India a “3rd world nation” because of “the intolerant misogynistic close minded few”.

On Tuesday, the “Khoobsurat” actress shared her disappointment with the meat ban as imposed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

After the BMC imposed the four-day meat ban here, which is during the upcoming ‘Paryushan’ Jain holy festival, Sonam tweeted: “Our country is going to remain a 3rd world nation because of the intolerant misogynistic close minded few.”

However, her tweet didn’t go down well with the Twitterati, who took a dig at the actress for her post.

“The meat ban is misogynistic? Sounds like a very bad innuendo,” said one user.

While another user asked the actress to carry a “$2 Thesaurus” in her bag.

“It is time to carry a $2 Thesaurus in that $20,000 Hermes bag of yours. By the way Thesaurus means Dictionary,” the tweet said.

Reacting to the tweets, Sonam wrote: “It was a critique of the general mentality.. Not just related to the meat ban.. This exact judgmental bullshit f***s us.”
