Gal Gadot who is currently ruling the box office because of her just-released film Wonder Woman 1984 is headlining the news for something else today. The actress had posted a post a story hailing Shaheen Bagh’s famous Bilkis dadi which did not go well with the netizens. Gadot has called Bilkis a ‘personal Wonder Woman’ in her post and her followers were not very impressed with her post. The actress received major backlash on the internet, post which she deleted the tweet. Gal Gadot Is Over the Moon As Her Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer Shines High on the Burj Khalifa.
Gal Gadot had discredited the Shaheen Bagh dadi as an ’82-year-old activist fighting for women’s equality in India’ in her post and was mocked by netizens for being this ignorant about what she actually does. As soon as she realised her mistake, the actress removed the Instagram story. However, she still remains a part of Gal Gadot’s post that talks about strong women.
Sharing a series of pictures of the strong women in her life, Gal captioned the images as, “Saying farewell to 2020, with all my love to #MyPersonalWonderWomen. Some are those closest to me – my family, my friends – some are inspiring women I’ve loved discovering, and some are exceptional women I hope to meet in the future. Together, we can do wonders! Share your own wonder women with me.”
