If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that ‘Ripped Jeans Twitter’ has been trending on Twitter for a while now. Tirath Singh Rawat, the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, made a controversial statement about women wearing torn jeans earlier this week, sparking a heated debate on social media.
He took to Twitter on Friday to share his take on the ‘Ripped Jeans’ lines, and it’s hilarious. Adnan posted a picture of a man with his belly protruding from the distance between his shirt’s two buttons. A scene that most of us have experienced while travelling by metro, dining in a restaurant, or simply walking down the street.
“Can we please display concern for RIPPED SHIRTS, because we’re so worried about ‘everything,’ regardless of whether it’s our business or not?” In his tweet, he wrote: His tweet made the Twitterati laugh out loud. “That’s not a torn shirt, that’s air conditioning!” one user said in response to Adnan’s post, while others laughed.
For the uninitiated, CM Tirath Singh mentioned a female co-passenger on a flight with him once who was dressed in ripped jeans and runs an NGO during one of his recent speeches. The Chief Minister questioned what kind of “sanskar” (values) the woman would offer if she dressed in torn jeans and exposed her knees.
Kangana Ranaut, Urmila Matondkar, Gul Panag, and Nagma are among the Bollywood stars who have tweeted about the problem with the hashtag ‘Ripped Jeans Twitter.’
