Noted film critic Raja Sen took a stand of sorts against Salman Khan and his callous ‘raped woman’ comment. Sen first outraged on Twitter about Khan’s statement before deciding not to review Sultan.

The critic later clarified that he was not claiming any kind of moral high ground by his decision to not watch this Salman Khan-starrer.

However, Salman Khan fans seem to have dug deep into Sen’s Twitter archives and come up with a tweet dating back to 2009 to call the critic out for being a hypocrite for reacting to the star’s indifferent remark on rape.
