Salman Khan could be pretty insistent at times, regardless of the situation and place. Such an example of his insistence was evident when he reached the sets of a Dance reality show to promote his forthcoming film 'Race 3' and 'forced' a little boy into hugging Jacqueline Fernandez.

The netizens apparently, were irked by the display of non-censual act and school the two actors that 'No means No,' applies to everyone, irrespective of age and gender. What irked the social media users more was that Jacqueline herself shared the video on Instagram.

How it all started?

The video shows both Salman and Jacqueline in the joyful mood after the performance of a 7-year-old chubby kid, whom the latter wanted to hug. Her co-star 'Dabangg' Khan asks the kid if he'd allow the lady to embrace him, who surprisingly refuses, which doesn't go down well with the Superstar.

Salman then took Jacqueline to stage and forces the boy into hugging Jacqueline. He visibly pushes the boy into the actress' outstretched arms. While the kid had a sour expression throughout, the actor wasn't done and asked him to hug the lady again, this time, a tight one though.

Why are Netizens angry?

The act of coercing a child into hugging the actress has drawn a flak on social media. People also questioned Jacqueline's audacity of posting the video on Instagram, that too with the caption, "Kids usually love me, this boy was an exception.. at least I got my hug in the end."

An angry user posted, "If a kid repeatedly says he doesn't want to hug you, shouldn't you probably respect his wishes and consent and mind your own business and understand simple 'NO'." Like the enraged fellow, many others posted their responses over the distasteful incident.
