Faye D'Souza told BuzzFeed:

"I honestly believe that whenever derogatory things are said about women, and it's not just me, it's all women, we need to stand up. Lots of times it's comments about what actresses wear. Nobody talks about male actors and athletes. These women are just doing their job. People bring up what you're wearing to distract you from doing your job. It happens to us in all workplaces. And it only happens to women. You're either dressed provocatively or too conservatively. It's demeaning. It was a ridiculous statement and these kinds of statements need to be shut down because it distracts from the real issues."
