Salman Khan may not be exactly known for being articulate, or sensitive, but one doesn't even expect him to go into grossly stupid territory. Or perhaps one *actually* does.

Proving once again that his worldview, as far as women are concerned, needs some serious changing, the Sultan actor had a major foot-in-the-mouth moment when he gave an interview to SpotboyE.com.

The actor felt nothing wrong in comparing his condition post the gruelling schedule of his wrestling drama to "that of a 'raped woman'."

He told the journalist,

"While shooting, during those six hours, there’d be so much of lifting and thrusting on the ground involved. That was tough for me because if I was lifting, I’d have to lift the same 120-kilo guy 10 times for 10 different angles. And likewise, get thrown that many times on the ground. This act is not repeated that many times in the real fights in the ring. When I used to walk out of the ring, after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman. I couldn’t walk straight. I would eat and then, head right back to training. That couldn’t stop."

If that weren't idiotic enough, the actor ensured he made it progressively by equating women as one of his several 'vices' like "smoking and drinking."

Predictably, Twitter was furious.
