Vivek Agnihotri was forced to take down an abusive tweet against actor Swara Bhasker on Monday after microblogging site Twitter locked the filmmaker’s account for violating its rules.
Bhasker had slammed Kerala MLA PC George for making objectionable remarks against the nun demanding the arrest of a bishop who allegedly raped her.
Agnihotri replied, in a reference to the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault, Where is the placard – #MeTooProstituteNun? Bhasker called out the director for using the trauma of women who are rape survivors to slut shame and abuse in public a woman you don’t like.
She also notified Twitter authorities against the abusive post and the microblogging site acknowledged her complaint through a message.
