Kareena Kapoor Khan gets trolled by Tweeple for her 'I'm not a feminist' comment

'I believe in equality. I wouldn't say I am a feminist,' said Bebo. Oh. Okay. So, what's being a feminist like?

Kareena Kapoor Khan is a feminist. Oh wait, strike that. She confirmed she's actually not one. She believes in equality. But she's not a feminist. *uber-confused*

Kareena, while promoting her upcoming 'not-a-chick-flick' Veere De Wedding, was asked about her idea of feminism. 

In response, she said, “I believe in equality. I wouldn’t say I am a feminist, I would say I am a woman and above all, I am a human being. I am also as proud to be known as Saif Ali Khan’s wife, as I am to be Kareena Kapoor. So that is just the way I am.” 

Okay... what?

Okay... what? GIF: Giphy

But Kareena, being a feminist means that one believes in equality. So how can one believe in equality and not be a feminist? Is it that you don't like the word? Or was it just a foot-in-the-mouth moment? BTW, you just did an Alia.

While we and her PR machinery figure that out, Tweeple schooled Bebo on feminism a la troll-style.

So, going by Bebo's logic, can we say, “I tend to procrastinate at work. But I am not lazy”? Okay, that's way off tangent.
