Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty has been on the target of fans ever since her rumored boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide. Rhea has been getting trolled on social media and is also receiving death and rape threats.
Rhea, on Thursday, opened up about the “toxicity and harassment” she had been facing for a month now. The actress through a social media post said that she has been at the receiving end of a lot of hatred and was called a gold digger and a murderer and was slut-shamed too but she remained silent. She further said that she is being threatened with rape and death.
“I was called a gold digger ..I kept quiet. I was called a murderer ….I kept quiet. I was slut shamed ….I kept quiet. But how does my silence give you the right to tell me that you will get me RAPED and MURDERED if I don’t commit suicide @mannu_raaut (sic),” She posted on Instagram with screenshot of a death threat sent to her by a user.
Concluding her post by writing, “enough is enough” she requested cyber cell to look into the matter.
