Started playing badminton at the age of six to getting India the first gold medal in Common Wealth Games, Arjuna awardee, Jwala Gutta is well known to shut down her trolls in style. While she has aced her game, this time she grabbed a shot to take down her troll like a boss on the upcoming episode of MTV Troll Police.
Jwala has received numerous comments on various occasions, be it the kind of clothes she wears to how she plays her game but being labeled as “China Ka Maal” and “Anti – National” is offensive regardless of the stature one holds and especially to the woman who makes the country proud.
Talking about one of her trolls, Jwala Gutta sadi, “Representing India has been of great pride to me & my family, I work each day towards it. There are times when I’ve been applauded when I win but there are times when I’ve been pulled down by derogatory remarks like ‘China Ka Maal’ and ‘Anti National, just because my mom is Chinese and why? Because I’ve lost a game! I’m very much Indian and so is my family. People need to respect and by making such comments no one is benefiting, stop spreading negativity and hate!”
Commenting on how sports personalities are being troll for endorsing brands, Jwala said, “It is easy for trolls to judge a sportsperson because they endorse a particular brand or are seen in number of commercials. What they do not realize is we need money to play our sports; it takes years of dedication and financial support for anyone to win an Olympic medal for our country. As sportsman, our priority is always towards our game but to fulfil that dream of getting a medal for India we need financial support. So next time when you see a sportsman endorsing something please do not judge them.”
Jwala is one of the famous sportsperson and we are proud of her successes. We’ve seen the biggest of the personalities that have been victim of internet trolling, not everyone chooses to ignore. Giving it back to all the trolls on behalf of the sports fraternity, Jwala Gutta, will be seen in the upcoming episode of MTV Troll Police where she is persistent to trace two of her trolls that have crossed their lines and have been disrespectful beyond a point.
The episode will also see Kannada actress Samyuktha Hegde who has also participated in Bigg Boss Kannada season 5 and MTV Roadies fourteenth season, supporting and standing up for Jwala Gutta.
