Randeep Hooda was at the centre of a growing social media storm on Wednesday over a nine-year video in which he’s seen making derogatory comments against Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati. The 43-second clip from an event organised by a media house in 2012 resurfaced when a Twitter user shared it. Hooda cracks a joke, being castigated as casteist and sexist, and is seen laughing along with the audience.

Nine years later, Twitterati and others were not amused, and were furious at the “Radhe” actor’s comments against a powerful woman leader and former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.

CPI-ML Politburo leader Kavita Krishnan also weighed in on the video, describing Hooda’s comments as a “casteist, misogynist”. “‘Not a ‘joke’ @RandeepHooda… You are doing what casteist, misogynist, insecure turds do when confronted with women whose strength they fear: attack the woman as unattractive,” Krishnan wrote on the microblogging site.

The video has attracted hundreds of comments on the social media with many criticising and asking the actor to apologise.
