People who’ve had any sort of experience with the Indian media will not contest the fact that The Times Of India is, in fact, a sexual harasser in newspaper form.
Time and again, they’ve gone out of their way to prove that no boundary is too sexist or gross or awful for them to cross.
So, when Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election earlier today, it should surprise no one that THIS is how they decided to cover the biggest news story in the world:
The headline chose to paraphrase Trump’s controversial “grab them by the pussy”quote, which led to the president-elect being accused of sexual assault and glorifying rape culture.
There’s not much to add here, except that everyone has pretty much given up on them at this point…
… and this still probably won’t be last time they decide to cross a line.
