Popular playback singer and dubbing artist Chinmayi Sripada, who is quite vocal about her opinions irrespective of any matter, is again targetted when a bunch social media users targeted her with obscene memes and rape threats. Demanding action on this, Chinmayi Sripaada lodged a complaint with Cyber Crimes Hyderabad demanding action against these social media users.
Using fake handles, the accused allegedly issued rape threats and comments like “Will chop you into pieces.” On Monday afternoon, the singer visited the Women and Child Safety Wing in Lakdi-Ka-Pul, Hyderabad to register an FIR under Sec 67 ITA Act and Sec 509 IPC.
“It all started when I posted about how meme pages objectify women. What disturbs me is how slut shaming has been normalised in the garb of humour. How can somebody threatening to stick a rod up my vagina be considered normal? I had enough and hope police will taken action soon,” Times of India quoted Chinmayi as saying.
The singer further added,“People can criticise me for the way I sing or the way I look. I’m often called a pseudo feminist by trolls, and I ignore them. But threats like these are unacceptable. Someday this verbal violence can escalate into real crimes against women. How can we sit by and watch people get away with such comments? It’s a shame that not many people decide to take action.”
