Malayalam hero turned politician Suresh Gopi's daughter Bhagya has completed her graduation at the University of British Columbia recently. Bhagya for her graduation ceremony wears a 'Kerala Kasavu' saree as an honour to her culture. She shared her picture on social media and a netizen, who wasn’t happy with her outfit commented, “Congratulations. I'd recommend you should get rid of your Saree and put on some proper Western dress. The problem with Saree is that it's not an attire for those with an excess of Horizontality, compared to Perpendicularity. Western Skirt and Blouse, would make you REALLY SMART."

Bhagya gave him a hit back for his horizontal and perpendicular comments. She wrote, “Thank you for your very valuable opinion that nobody asked for. my horizontality and perpendicularity are none of your concern. I will continue to wear whatever I deem appropriate. If I want to wear my traditional Kerala saree to honour my roots for my graduation ceremony in a foreign country where all Indian students are forced to blend in with the Western folk, then that’s exactly what I’ll wear. why don’t you make an effort to mind your own business and not comment on other people’s bodies and outfits, concerned citizen?"
This is not the first time women are being body shamed for their social media pictures. Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu also faced body shaming for being too skinny and later for being fat. Body shaming is a humiliation of an individual’s personality nothing but a self-respect assault.
