Kangana Ranaut, who has fought for her independent identity and become the fierce face of feminism, has been caught laughing at a rape joke cracked by Padmaavat actor Jim Sarbh. A video of the same has surfaced online, and Twitter is appalled. Both, Kangana and Jim were present at the prestigious 71st Cannes Film Festival. The video suggests the incident happened at the side-line of the event.

In the video, Jim Sarbh was heard cracking a joke, "I'd rather be raped by 12 prostitutes than touch alcohol and the Punjabi says 'Me too, I didn't know that was an option'", which made Kangana Ranaut and other spectators burst into laughter.

Last year, during the shoot of Sultan, when Salman Khan had infamously compared the exhausting shoot schedule of Sultan to rape, Kangana had come out in the open to condemn it. She had said, "We all agree that it is a horrible thing to say; it is something which is extremely insensitive. But what I would like to say is let's not encourage the mentality where we want to point fingers at each other and want to feel greater by just running people down by trolling them."

Kangana Ranaut's "hypocrisy” and Jim's "insensitive” joke has left Twitter fuming in anger.
