Well, if you don’t know what I’m on about , here is a bit of background on this comedy of errors 🙂
So TOI did the usual attention grabbing headline, and, thankfully, it backfired.
This sort of story is so typical of the most read English newspaper of the country, that I am actually surprised people have finally realised, it is beyond obnoxious.
But sadly, this is not the first time that such deliberate objectification of women has happened on Indian or International press. It is also not going to be the last.
TOI is not alone to come out with abject pieces of pathetic journalism, like: “Check out Bollywood’s busty babes.”, “7 worst wardrobe malfunctions.” etc.

But at the end of the day, that story was an attempt to sensationalise. And guess what, that’s exactly what happened.
They say all press is good press, but, I for one, think, it will take TOI a while to battle this shit storm.
Until then, they can take to doling out unsolicited advice on online journalism and catchy headlines. Point to note: Nobody is listening to you lame idiots. Stop trying to come off worse than you already are.
