The advent of social media has not only brought its advantages, it brought a bunch of disadvantages as well. The biggest problem many people face on social media is trolling, a public abuse. The scenario is worse for the celebrities. From sports personalities to film celebrities to politicians, no one will be spared by the trollers.
Just within a few days after Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj was trolled badly, it’s Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi now who is being intimidated on social media.
Priyanka Chaturvedi shared on Twitter that on Sunday, a troll, @GirishK1605, threatened to harm her 10-year-old daughter. The tweet is no longer available.
She, in her tweet, pointed out that the troll account had a picture of Lord Ram and yet “it didn’t stop him from making such disgusting comments”. She has filed a complaint with Mumbai police, who have assured prompt action. “Will take legal recourse,” she said.
The 38-year-old Chaturvedi said that the harassment began after a fake quote on the recent gang-rape of a seven-year-old in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur was attributed to her.
“The quote on Facebook showed that I was supporting the accused. This went viral on various social media platforms,” she told.

“This is where the discourse has reached. I have got support not just from my own party, but people from different parties have condemned such behavior. Unfortunately, the party which is in power refuses to acknowledge that these kinds of threats have become a regular phenomenon for women with a differing point of view with regards to the government,” she said.
Priyanka Chaturvedi also accused the ruling party of failing to support their own minister when she was being mercilessly trolled on social media.
