Akshay Kumar made headlines today for his Twitter video which shows the Jolly LLB actor’s outrage at the recent molestation cases in Bengaluru. He’s not the only one, however. Many members of the film fraternity have openly spoken out against the incident or subtly conveyed their disgust towards the matter. Many even attacked Samajwadi Party’s Abu Asiz for blaming the men’s behaviour on the women’s clothing. Check out what Bollywood has to say:

Akshay Kumar released a video, captioned, “The Bangalore incident makes me feel we r evolving backwards, from humans to animals,rather beasts coz even animals are better! Truly shameful.” The video has been retweeted 5,000 times since its release today and has been retweeted by Anushka Sharma.

Alia Bhatt retweeted Farhan Akhtar’s post about the CCTV footage which caught a molestation incident in the city and added, “Disgusting!”

Amitabh Bachchan retweeted a post by another user, which read, “Aghast at #MassMolestation in Banglore. Worst are those who judges the character of a girl on the basis of their clothes. #Shame.”

Shabani Azmi wrote, “Abu Azmis misogynist remarks are a blot on our culture.Blaming the victim not the perpetrator is almost as heinous as the crime itself.”

During the launch of the second Satyamev Jayate Water Cup, Aamir Khan raised the issue as well. He said, “When such an incident takes place in America, the guilty are not only arrested but they are given punishments as well within two or three months. I think when such a change will take place, things will automatically change. I think when such examples come to fore that a guilty of such case is given punishments within two-three months, only then the situation will change and people will fear before committing such crimes.”

Swara Bhaskar called out the authorities’ response to the incident, saying, “Shameful that law breakers, law makers & law keepers are united in the warped logic tht women invite rape/molestation.”
