Now, DMK leader Dindigul I Leoni has recently come under fire for his sexist remarks while making a speech at an election campaign rally in Coimbatore. Holding the mic, he can be heard saying how women “have lost their figures, putting on weight after consuming the milk of foreign cows”. Moreover, the audience present at the event can be heard laughing and clapping in response, The Indian Express reports. Here’s the clip:

He can be heard saying how women used to be ‘thin and their hips would have curves’ and now they ‘no longer have figure 8’. He states, “You know, there are many types of cows.
