Viv Richards daughter trolled for supporting 'firecracker ban'



Mumbai, Oct 12: Masaba Gupta is a symbol of rebel and one who breaks taboos in the traditional world and challenges the norms of the society. New-age designer designer Masaba Gupta has been trolled and been called names like "B*****d child" or "illegitimate West Indian" for supporting the ban on firecrackers. But she says that she is a product of two legitimate personalities and is a proud Indo-Caribbean girl.



Masaba -- the daughter of actress Neena Gupta and cricket legend Vivian Richards -- on Wednesday, took to her Instagram to share an open letter. 



She wrote: "Recently, I re-tweeted in support of the firecracker ban by the Supreme Court and like every other issue in this country, big or small... The trolling and bashing began. 



"By calling me names like 'B*****d child' or 'illegitimate West Indian' only makes my chest swell with pride. I'm the illegitimate product of two of the most legitimate personalities you'll find and I've made the best life, both personally and professionally... Out of which I am proud of." 



The designer added that she is "immune" to this as she has been called these names since she was 10. 



"My legitimacy comes from the work I do and what my contribution to society has been. And you can try but you will not be able to raise a single finger on either of the two," she added. 



Masaba also says she is proud of her roots. 



"So, please if you must...go ahead and continue calling me these names if it makes you feel glorious. But know this... I am a proud Indo-Caribbean girl who doesn't know how to shrink and crumble in shame of something you or your society cannot handle. It's just in my 'illegitimate' genes," she said.
