Meera Chopra filed a complaint with the NCW and Hyderabad cybercrime division after Junior NTR fans threatened her with gangrape and murder in a live session on Twitter
Actor Meera Chopra, cousin of Priyanka Chopra is the latest victim of social media trolling after Telugu actor Jr NTR’s fans created a hate campaign against her, all because she said that she likes Mahesh Babu more than Junior NTR.
Junior NTR's fans didn't like the comments made my Meera and a few took it to heart and threatened her with gangrape and murder. She later sent out a tweet to Junior NTR to highlight the behaviour of his fans.
How it started: Meera, who has also worked in a few Telugu films did a chat session with her fans on Twitter. In the interaction, she was asked to name her favourite actor in Telugu cinema. When a user asked her to describe actor Jr NTR in one word, Meera wrote, “I don’t know him...I am not his fan.”
When another user said she would become a fan of NTR if she watched his films Shakti and Dammu, Meera replied, “Thank you but not interested.” Her straightforward response caused anger among NTR’s fans who went on to start a hate campaign against her and passed abusive remarks.
Shocked by the tweets, Meera tagged actor Jr NTR in a tweet and asked: “I didn’t know that I’ll be called a bitch, whore and a porn star, 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 don’t ignore my tweet.”
Yes. There were thousands that said the same when I said I liked a movie. Been there. Ask some of your followers to send you screenshots with meanings of the words in English, take screenshots. Draft a letter and send it to @NCWIndia and @TwitterIndia— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) June 2, 2020
Reading her statement, singer Chinmayi Sripada urged her to file a complaint with the cyber cell. “Yes. There were thousands that said the same when I said I liked a movie. Been there. Ask some of your followers to send you screenshots with meanings of the words in English, take screenshots. Draft a letter and send it to @NCWIndia and @TwitterIndia,” Chinmayi tweeted.
