Nicola Thorp destroys journalist for asking sexist questions
LAHORE -  Nicola Thorp also known as Nicola Sian, is a British actress best known for her role in Coronation Street as Nicola Rubinstein from 2017. Thorp is a leading British actress who had competed for ITV in Sports Relief's "Clash of the Channels" boat race and has also written a regular column for

The actress had written for the rights of women and how they are suffering through poverty. Recently, an unnamed journal interviewed Nicola and it was a series of sexist questions to which the star had answered in a wise manner.

Thorp answered every question, no matter how invasive or inappropriate it was and then she posted the entire thing on social media, with the magazine’s name removed.

The unnamed publication sought info on Thorp’s exact height, weight, and diet. The interviewer also wanted to know her body insecurities and how she boosts her body confidence — questions not unlike those regularly featured in some magazines not too long ago.

Below is the post shared by Thorp on her official Twitter account:

Apparently, the unnamed magazine didn’t get Thorp’s humor. Thorp later informed followers that she’d been asked to remove her post.

In 2016, she famously “ignited a British rebellion,” as the New York Times put it, after she refused to comply with an office dress code that required women to wear heels.

Her experience of being sent home without pay from her temporary office job for wearing flats drove more than 150,000 people to sign a petition calling for an end to such policies. A government report issued in January 2017 formally confirmed them as sexist and illegal.

Magazine officials had no idea how Thorp will be dealing with their questions and we are impressed by the sense of humor of the star. She had definitely given the best response and after she revealed the interview on social media, people started pouring love and support for her. Let's have a look at some of the responses by Twitterati:
