Why is there cosmetics in the men’s section? Why do males require makeup? Yes, hygiene is important, but what purpose does makeup serve?

“Do you aspire to be a pondan (transvestite)? What baffles me the most is why is there a nude pink lip gloss for men?” he wrote.

Gets slammed by netizens

In the comment section, netizens weren’t too happy with the tweet and criticised him for disparaging men who use makeup.
