After Sunny Leone’s controversial, ‘sexist’ interview with TV journalist Bhupendra Chaubey went viral on social media, thousands including celebrities like Sonam Kapoor were enraged at the interviewer who repeatedly raised questions about the former porn star’s past.

And although Leone handled the heat well, her husband Daniel Weber has come out in her defense, slamming Chaubey for being unprofessional.

Weber, who married the Indo-Canadian actress in 2011, said in and exclusive interview to Bollywoodlife.com, that he was shocked that a reputable media outlet seemed to have “pre-conceived notions of how you want the interview to turn out”.

Sunny has a notion like anybody else and to speak down to her is very uncalled for and unprofessional and especially as a journalist I have to be honest, if your job as a journalist is to be honest you have to report the truth and not come in opinionated.

Weber went on to say that Leone had called him right after the interview, adding that he could not monitor every interview she went through.

Sunny called me right after the interview. She told me that if I was next to her at that point of time, I would have grabbed her and taken her out of the interview. But I wasn’t sitting next to her.

Weber went on to say that his wife “is a true champion” and that she had handled the interview with grace.

I have seen that girl fight through the craziest of comments and craziest of negativity faced towards her in her life and I think she has a heart of gold. I am amazed every day; I tell her all the time that she is blessed... She is the sweetest and you know what at the end, good things happen to good people.

But Weber also denied that the interview was scripted or a publicity stunt.

This is not a publicity thing, I mean who wants to be put in a position like she was put it. This actually completely caught us off-guard; we knew nothing about how this interview would happen. We don’t gain anything from this. Its only the awareness, people should act civil towards other human beings.

Meanwhile, Chaubey in a blogpost, has defended his interview and denied that he was rude or sexist.

I simply did the job of asking questions, yes which were perhaps moral in nature. But isn’t that also the story? I did mention this multiple times in the course of the interview that Indians were a bunch of hyper, hypocritical people.
