Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Meera Chopra became a target on Twitter after she called Mahesh Babu a better actor than Jr. NTR. Meera was called by various names and going in extreme even received rape threats from some Jr. NTR fans. Meera addressed the actor on Twitter and shared the serious problem that she had faced on social media.
Sending a tweet to Jr. NTR, Meera wrote,
“@tarak9999 i didn’t know that i’ll be called a bitch, whore and a pornstar, just bcoz i like @urstrulyMahesh more than you. And your fans will send my parents such wishes. Do u feel successful with such a fan following? And I hope u dont ignore my tweet!!”
Meera explained her problem in detail,
“Well i didn’t know not being somebody’s fan was a crime.. I want to say this out 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’re totally spoiling the name of their idol.”
Have a look at some of her tweets:
Meera was not alone in her fight and received support from playback singer Chinmayi, who tweeted,
“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, http://cybercrime.gov.in” Meera replied stating she is not scared of the threats but action needs to be taken against the fan clubs who promote such behaviour.
Have a look at Duo’s conversation:
Meera approached NCW, Hyderabad Police & Twitter asking the Duo to take appropriate legal action against the fan clubs. Chinmayi, meanwhile, has also lodged a complaint with the Cyber Crime department in Hyderabad.
