Huffington post is not happy with the way its Indian partner Times of India has handled the Deepika Padukone issue. It has posted the twitter spat between the newspaper and the actor and concluded that "not only have they objectified a woman's body, but they've then tried to shame that women for standing up for herself."

In the article titled, 'Times Of India Brand Deepika Padukone A Hypocrite For Fighting Back Over 'Cleavage' Tweet, Huff Post UK says, "Last week Times of India posted a seriously sexist tweet about Bollywood star Deepika Padukone. Now, as if to add insult to injury, the paper has called the actress a "hypocrite" for saying their behaviour was unacceptable."

Huff Post says just when they thought the TOI couldn't do anything more offensive, "...And, just when we thought the paper couldn't say anything more offensive, they decide to point out that Padukone "began her career as a 'calendar girl' for a liquor brand", as if that justifies their tweet."
