The Hardik Pandya controversy is by now a household topic of discussion. Almost everyone knows about the kind of things he said on the show, despite the episode being taken down.
A lot of people have in fact spoken up about the issue, including Harbhajan Singh, Virat Kohli, Esha Gupta and many others. None of them support the statements made by Pandya.
Mumbai Police too joined in the debate, and shared a tweet which took a dig at Hardik Pandya. Cricket is supposed to be a gentleman’s game, and clearly Pandya was anything but that.

In the caption, Mumbai Police wrote “A ‘Gentleman’ is a Gentleman, always and everywhere” meaning that Hardik should practice the same policies on field and off it.
This is how people reacted:
A real gentleman doesn’t hurt women, either physically hurt them or with words. He treats women with respect and kindness, and not just because they may be attractive, but simply because he respect women. ☺
