Deepika's anger seems to have worked, and perhaps her outburst will make them think twice next time.

It is a matter of some shame that The Times of India (TOI), the newspaper that professes to be the industry leader in India posts a video of a Bollywood actor's cleavage.

The actor in question, Deepika Padukone has taken to twitter to tell the newspaper what she thinks about having to wake up with the entire country staring at her bosom. No, she was not the one to take it lying down and so Deepika tweeted, "I am a woman, I have breasts AND a cleavage,you got a problem?."

The Indian Express reports that the actress had worn a low cut dress designed by Anaita Shroff Adajania for the trailer launch of ‘Chennai Express’. And this apparently is the second time that Times of India has reported on the dress. On Sunday morning, they simply reframed the old story.

If the first tweet was bad, Times of India's reply was worse. The TOI Entertainment Twitter handle replied to the actor, "@deepikapadukone , It's a compliment! You look so great that we want to make sure everyone knew! :)."

The fact that Deepika Padukone, and many actors who voiced their support to her, lashed out against ‘yellow journalism’, shows that they suddenly have the confidence to take on conventional media, that too, a giant like Times of India.

Deepika's anger seems to have worked... the tweet is no longer there on Times of India Entertainment's Twitter timeline, and perhaps her outburst will make them think twice next time before posting anything about any actor or any person for that matter.
