Bollywood actress Ananya Panday‘s cousin and daughter of fitness expert Deanne Panday, Alanna Panday took her stand against cyberbullying and shared her experience on how a woman commented that she deserves to be ‘gang-raped’ for sharing a bikini photo.
Alanna took to her Instagram to share the incident, “I’ve had a women comment on my post saying I deserve to be gang raped because I posted a picture in a bikini.She then tagged my mother and father in the comment to make sure that they saw it too. I wish I had a screenshot but I was so shaken when I saw it I blocked her immediately and Instagram deleted the comment.”
“When I went to her profile to block her I saw that she was married and had a daughter a little younger than me. I don’t understand how you can wish that upon someone else’s child,” She added.
Alanna also shared a screenshot of a woman’s Instagram profile and captioned it, “Educated women in our country still talk/think like this. According to her bio she’s either a doctor or a nurse.”
Captioning the post, she wrote, “This happened months ago, I wish I had spoken about it sooner, but waking up and reading things like this just became normal to me-it’s an everyday part of my life. Here’s 1% of what I have to wake up and read everyday.”
Bollywood celebrities like Bipasha Basu, Elli Avram, Lara Bhupathi, Karan Singh Grover, and many others extended their support to Alanna for taking a stand against cyberbullying.
