Chandigarh, March 7
Industrialist Harsh Goenka ‘sexist joke’ on Twitter has not gone down well with the users.
The 'body-shaming wife joke' may have been considered funny by a few, but he did draw ire over it from others.
“I was having a candlelight dinner, a rare occasion, with my wife. She told me softly “Pass the wine, my divine". I thought to myself ‘how clever, how poetic’… so I wanted the bread and reciprocated without thinking “pass the roti, my m _ _ _! Writing from the hospital !" Goenka’s tweet reads.

Harshji, since your 'jokes' usually skew only one way in terms of gender, should balance a bit, no?

This is problematic on so many counts, but not surprising, coming from someone who made fun of the poor!— Katyusha (@Indian10000000) March 6, 2023
