An Australian woman has been attacked by trolls after she revealed she cooks three meals a day for her husband.
Sonali Arora began posting videos on TikTok of the meals she makes for her husband Nipun, but was criticized by people calling her a “50s housewife” who “destroyed feminism and women’s liberation.”
“If it’s not the people who come for the portion sizes, it’s them who attack my husband without even knowing him, call him a two-year-old, people who say he’s misogynistic or that I’m in my fifties ‘ she told FEMAIL.

Newlywed Melbourne prepares three meals a day for Nipun and packs his lunchbox for work, an act that online trolls say is ‘destroying feminism and women’s liberation’
The newlyweds from Melbourne split the household ’50/50′, while Sonali loved to cook so much that she started posting recipes and Nipun’s lunchboxes on TikTok, but the abuse soon started pouring in.
“Isn’t this satire?” one viewer asked, while another said, “I don’t think I’ve ever packed lunch for my husband, not his mother.”
“Being proud of this is my worst nightmare. As they say, being the boss’s favorite dog is still having a master and being a dog,” a third replied harshly.
“Ever heard of the saying ‘make a stick for your own back?’,” wrote a fourth.
The 26-year-old said that while she tried not to let the mean comments sink in, she had to delete many hurtful comments.
Sonali said the assumptions that Nipun is immature or misogynistic couldn’t be further from the truth and the couple split all the housework ’50/50′
“You get a little defensive of the person you love and especially when they’re bullied in the wrong light,” she said.
“Even though I know they’re complete strangers and what they say doesn’t define anything, it still hurts to watch.”
Sonali said the assumptions the online trolls are making about their relationship couldn’t be further from the truth.
“My husband is the sweetest, most supportive and least misogynistic person I’ve ever been on the planet,” she said.
‘We have a very good business, we divide all household tasks. After I cook, he does the dishes, I don’t touch that. He is also responsible for cleaning all bathrooms and vacuuming the floors.’
Sonali, who works at home in cybersecurity, said that cooking is her “love language” and that it brings her joy to prepare meals for her husband and share them online.
Sonali, who works in cybersecurity, said she is very independent and career-oriented and wouldn’t have the time to prepare three delicious meals a day for Nipun if she wasn’t working from home.
“That gives me the flexibility to cook three meals a day for him. If I didn’t work from home, it certainly wouldn’t be,” she said.
‘Cooking is something I love, it’s my love language and something that makes me happy. It makes me even happier when I see his reaction to the creations I’ve made.’
Despite the hate, Sonali said she gets just as much, if not more, positive reactions to her videos and refuses to let the haters stop her from sharing her passion.
‘Yeah, I’ll keep posting them! It helps a lot of people have different ideas of what to make throughout the day because it’s so hard to think about,” she said.
“It’s nice to tap into this community of people who love food.”
