To protest sexual violence in Ukraine, a woman storms the Cannes red carpet

Several celebrities were surprised when a female protestor was removed from the Cannes Film Festival red carpet on Friday after she protested against sexual violence against women in Ukraine. The woman was seen on video reaching the red carpet in a semi-naked state with paint on the lower half of her body before being escorted off by security guards. Since May 17, the prestigious film festival has been taking place in southern France.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, eyewitnesses claimed that the woman stripped off all of her clothes and screamed in front of the assembled photographers. Security guards rushed over to her and draped her in a coat.

The protester had painted the words “stop rapping us” across her chest and abdomen in the colours of the Ukrainian flag. The woman had blood-red paint on her lower back and legs, as well as the word’scum’ written on her back.

The incident occurred at the premiere of George Miller’s Three Thousand Years Of Longing, which stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton and is directed by Miller. When the episode aired, the director and stars were reportedly present.

The Cannes Film Festival is one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals, held every summer in Cannes, France. The festival features world premieres and screenings of some of the most well-known and critically acclaimed films. The top prizes in the competition section are determined by an eight-member jury from the various films. Deepika Padukone is one of the festival’s stars this year at the 75th Cannes Film Festival.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, there have been numerous reports of Russian soldiers sexually abusing Ukrainian civilians since the start of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine earlier this year.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered a live satellite video address at the festival’s opening ceremony. He urged filmmakers to “confront dictators” in an emotional speech.

Food blogger attacked by Swara Bhasker for boasting about being a vegetarian on Twitter: “Smug self-righteousness”

Food blogger attacked by Swara Bhasker for boasting about being a vegetarian on Twitter: “Smug self-righteousness”

In response to food blogger Nalini Unagar’s “proud to be a vegetarian” tweet, actor Swara Bhasker attacked Unagar. On Sunday, Nalini posted a photo of her lunch at X. It included a paneer dish and fried rice.

What was said by the food blogger?
Nalini shared the picture and added, “I’m happy to be a vegetarian. There are no more tears, cruelty, or guilt on my platter.”

This is Swara’s response.
In response, Swara penned, “To be honest… I find vegetarians’ arrogant self-righteousness to be incomprehensible. Denying the calf its mother’s milk, forcing cows to become pregnant, ripping them from their calves, and taking their milk are the main components of your diet.”

Furthermore, she said, “You eat root vegetables? That eliminates the entire plant! Just because it’s Bakr Eid, don’t stress about virtue signalling (folded hands emojis). June 16–17 is when Bakr Eid, or Eid al-Adha, is observed.

Swara just had her Eid celebration.
A few months after celebrating Eid al-Fitr, Swara posted a tweet. She celebrated the occasion with her daughter Raabiyaa and spouse Fahad Ahmad. On her Instagram Stories, Swara posted snippets of her Eid festivities. Swara and Raabiyaa were shown in one of the stories pointing at the Eid ka Chaand. Another photo shows Swara, her daughter, and Fahad posing as a family. Fahad is Muslim, but Swara is Hindu.

When Swara discussed the cultures of her and Fahad
Swara performed a chhathi puja for Raabiyaa the previous year. She revealed tidbits from the festivities and reported discovering shared cultural experiences with Fahad’s family. “The child is a mish mash of the mish mash we are,” Swara had wrote. She therefore has 62.5% UP, 12.5% Bihar, and 25% Andhra. Furthermore, I support representation and am always up for a celebration! Furthermore, since our wedding, we’ve learned that Muslims and Hindus in North India have common cultural customs, which strengthens my conviction that, despite our variety, love and joy will always find a language.”

“Chhathhi, or the sixth day of a child’s birth, is celebrated throughout UP Bihar. Mom and kid dress in the colour of turmeric or haldi, and aunts or bua put kaajal on the child and parents to protect them from ‘nazar,’ or the evil eye! I’m performing a well-known “sohar”—celebration songs for new babies. Although sohars are often used to celebrate newborn boys, I customised it for a newborn girl—oh! And although sisters and aunts sing the sohars, mothers don’t, so I thought, “Why not?” Dholak aa gaya hai! Thank you to @manisha2967 for the Chhathhi lesson and the beautiful singing I was able to do, and to Bhanu ji @partapsinghb11 for the dholak that helped make my singing pleasant.
