“Well i didnt know not being somebody’s fan was a crime.. i want to say this loud to all the girls that if you are not a fan of @tarak9999, u could be raped, murdered, gangraped, ur parents could be killed as tweeted by his fans. They r totally spoiling the name of their idol”, she further wrote.
Meera Chopra also urged Hyderabad Police and Twitter to take action against the abusers. She even launched compliant against the trolls with Hyderabad Cyber Cell. She also sent screenshots of some of the abusive messages to the cyber cell.
Singer Chinmayi Sripada, who has also received rap and acid attack threats, came out in support of Meera and wrote, “One of the reasons I stopped saying I even “like movies” is because there are people who’ll use that as a means to abuse. As someone who gets rape threats everyday, I suggest you file a case. Pick the abusive ones from this and file it with @NCWIndia.” (sic)
Meera thanked fans for supporting her and tweeted, “Thankyou each one of you for supporting me. Lets make this place safe for women and take down those losers who abuse and give death threats. Lets raise our voice against #womenabuse #rape #pedophilia #hooliganism.” (sic)
