Meera Chopra on abuse by NTR Jr fans on social media

I have been threatened of gangrape by NTR Jr fans: Meera Chopra

Meera Chopra didn’t know what hit her when, during a chat on social media with the public she happened to mention that she  liked the Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu and she that she didn’t know much about NTR Jr.

That was  it. NTR Jr’s fanatical fans took off  on  a tirade of  vulgar insults against the actress.

“I’ve received  hundreds of threats from NTR Jr’s fans many of them offering to gangrape me. Some of them have morphed my face on  porn stars showing gangrape,” says the shaken actress who  has reported every one of them to the cybercrime  team.

“I’d have probably borne the brunt of  the violent and explicit abuse. But then NTR’s fans took off on my parents.  Some of them said they wished my parents got  the  coronavirus. That’s when I was shaken up. I decide to take  action against these so-called  fans of  NTR Jr,” says Meera.

She wonders why NTR Jr is  quiet  through all the attack on her. “All he has  to do is to tell his fans to stop, and they will  stop. But he is not  doing it. I wonder why! What  kind of  fans does  he have who threaten to gangrape a woman because she  likes  another star?”

Meera is not just dismayed by NTR Jr’s  silence  but also by the lack of  support from her fraternity in this  hour of distress. “Not a single  member of  the entertainment  industry has  said  word in my support. Not even those who are generally so vocal  on  social media.”

She means Swara Bhaskar and Richa Chadha?   “Yes, in fact Richa is a friend of mine. Maybe she doesn’t want  NTR Jr’s fans to target her. I  am okay with fighting  these cyber goons on my own. I am going to make sure they are taken to task because  these  cyber abusers , if not checked, go out there and  actually  rape women.”

Meera feels the cult of abusive fan-crushing must end. “This is a South phenomenon. Every superstar in the South must sternly warn his fans to not indulge in abuse. NTR Jr should openly disown  these so-called fans  who are  threatening to rape  me and questioning my character.  Because his silence says more about him than the abuses  of  his fanatical fans.”
