Actor and Producer Pooja Bhatt made her Instagram account private, amid Sushant Singh Rajput’s unfortunate demise many stars with Big Family names were being called out on social media, Rape threats, and death threats were given immodestly. Pooja Bhatt came under the radar of many netizens and as she claims were bullied on social media platforms.
She broke her silence on this issue and took it to her Instagram handle. Take a look:
“This has to be said. @instagram seems to have become a place where people anonymously & otherwise use their access to hurl abuse, threaten rape, and goad you to ‘go die’. I used to ignore this sort of talk as I always believed that only people who are in pain themselves want to hurt another and also that if you accept love, you must accept criticism too. But is someone wishing you and your family death, constructive criticism, or just an attempt at vile cyberbullying? I have been advised to turn off all comments but by doing that you block out all the positive, well-meaning, constructive feedback as well. Why should I push back the people who give me good vibes for the ones that only spew venom towards people in general? But what I have done now is make my account private. Do you want access to my world? Make a request. You want to converse with me, cut out the abuse. As for wishing me death, the same God and Universe that watches over you watch over me as well. I will pass when life decides for me. And as long as life keeps me breathing, I will live to the optimum and revel in the now.”
She also wrote, “We seem to have become apathetic lot..spewing abuse, inciting violence, following agendas of manufactured hate like sheep. We are still in the middle of a Pandemic. People are dying in huge numbers every day due to COVID, hunger, depression & unemployment. But those lives lost don’t seem to concern the haters. Their hate is what consumes them instead. But yet, l wish them well. May they heal. May they hurt less. May they reclaim the humanity they were born with yet choose to toss aside. May they live. Healthy, long lives. As for the ones who take time out to fill my life with positivity no matter what, I send you lots of love and offer my deepest gratitude. Life is short. And the ones who choose kindness form the glue that keeps this fractured world from falling apart. Thank you. Love you all! Yes, the bots too!”
