Recently we saw two wild card entries in the popular yet controversial TV reality show Bigg Boss 12 – the first one is Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya actor Rohit Suchanti and the other is Bigg Boss Marathi season 1 winner Megha Dhade.
After a good entry, Rohit was seen asking other contestants to evict Sreesanth from the house and his insulting tone was not liked by some housemates. Later we saw some contestants making fun of Rohit’s fair complexion and calling him beautiful instead of handsome.
Sreesanth was also heard saying that Rohit wore shorts of purple colour and then he acted in a manner as if he was trying to indicate that Rohit is not straight or rather gay.
The former Bigg Boss contestant Vikas Gupta got so upset after watching this all that he took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and in a hard-hitting long post, he slammed all those who called Rohit bis*xual or gay. As per him, it was quite unexpected and hard to believe that people who are educated and belong to a good background are making such remarks.
Check out his tweet:
I am extremely upset after what I saw today on #BigBoss12 on @ColorsTV . So I wrote this ‘The Color Purple’ . Hoping it reaches the right people who read and share it ahead . It’s important that we don’t let people think it’s okay to do this #TheColourPurple #BeKind pic.twitter.com/ohE6m8vgQy

Not only Vikas but other netizens also slammed Sreesanth as this kind of behaviour from a cricketer who represented the country on the international level is not at all acceptable. Here are some selected tweets:
Surbhi called Rohit beautiful because he has a pretty face. Handsome means rough beard look. That is a difference. Not the way sreesanth showed a demonstration on how gay people act. #bb12 #biggboss12

Sreesanth you are calling Rohit gay and making fun of him but the panssy gay is you cos you keep crying all the time. Men usually dnt cry so easily so think now who is a gay you or rohit for me your a gay

Calling someone girlish or beautiful is not offensive, but our own self proclaimed great cricketer Mr sreesanth not only passed detogratory comments but also showed how Rohit walks like gay

Was disappointed to see the contestants make fun of Rohit & insinuating that he is gay.Sreesanth is a moron can't expect any kind of sensitivity from him. It's 2018 the least you could expect from mainstream channels like @ColorsTV is to not promote transphobia on their show. https://t.co/ZORTFKtCEU

Sreesanth. Disgusting! I hate him. He reminds me of Priyanka Jagga. My foot he respects women. I don't think he respects any sexuality. Otherwise he wouldn't imitate how a gay would cross the road. Just disgusting. Commenting on Rohit also in that way is not acceptable!

Actually #Sreesanth was jealous bcoz #RohitSuchanti is so good looking aur ghar ki ladies usko dekh kar bahot khush ho gayi thi. Isliye Rohit ko nicha dikhane k liye ye ghatiya gay wala comment kiya 😑 uski shakal pe jealousy ekdum saaf nazar aa rahi thi 😏

Yaar Sreesanth ne Rohit ko mock kiya vo hatao ek baar.
He basically tried to imply that Gays act like jokers.
Has he ever even met a Gay Man?
Because Gays don't act like THAT!
