Actor-politician S V Shekher has got himself into the middle of a controversy after he shared a Facebook post which spoke about and commented cheaply about women journalists in Tamil Nadu.
The post, said to have been made by a US resident following the action of the state governor who patted the cheek of a woman journalist of a national magazine after the governor’s press conference; subsequently the governor apologised for the action.
Shekher, a Mandavelipakkam resident who is now propaganda secretary of the BJP says that he shared the post without fully reading its contents. He has made an attempt to delete the shared post.
Just days earlier, another state BJP leader is said to have made distasteful remarks on a DMK woman leader while referring to the governor’s action
