High-Earning Women Are Using Sarcastic "Queries" To Rip Apart ICICI's Sexist Ad On Facebook

A true masterclass in trollage.

The ad begins with a woman whose card gets declined when she's out jewellery shopping. She gets mad at her husband, who instantly transfers money to her account through the app, thus "calming her down".

The video was up on ICICI's page for three days before analyst and statistician Gowri Thampi came across it, and instantly had a query for them.

"Even if it was a joint account, how would the wife's only concern be paying for jewellery if it is 'cleaned'? I thought the best way to show my outrage would be some sarcastic humour," Thampi told BuzzFeed.

"I believe eliminating sexism at the root even when it seems benign is important in removing gender-based crimes from society and having dignity for everyone irrespective of gender," she added.
