Here’s Why Sonam Kapoor Ahuja Quit Twitter!

Social media has taken its toll!

Bollywood actress Sonam K Ahuja has announced that she’s off the social media site Twitter for a while. Her last tweet, which was posted on October 5, was her briefly giving a reason why she is quitting.

While she reveals nothing about any particular negative incident or participation that might have made her quit the social media site, it could be owing to a recent interaction she had with a man on Twitter. The user had taken a screenshot of her Instagram story where she wrote about how polluted Mumbai was and how the roads are bad and why it’s a “nightmare to get out of the house”.

His tweet berated her for using luxury cars as opposed to using public transport. Her response was towards the lack of safety that public transport assures.

Sonam has been battling trolls much like what most women face online. From being body-shamed in the past to being trolled for taking a stand on an issue, trolls have never ceased from going out of their way to shame or ridicule her. Incidentally in a column last year for Hindustan Times, Sonam Kapoor wrote about the facing abuse online and how she was bullied every time she spoke her mind.  “I love my country, but for some of you — and you’re the bigots, not me — I become ‘anti-national’ only because I ask questions or choose to be critical. Listen to the National Anthem… recall the line you heard as kids, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Issai…’,” she wrote.

Recently, actress Samantha Akkineni took to Instagram to share a response to trolls who constantly abuse her for not dressing like a “married woman”. Fed up with the kind of hate she received, it took a lot of guts for Samantha to send one message to all those who moral police her – the middle finger. Taking to Instagram story, Samantha posted that in so little words how she feels about people who shame her for wearing clothes that are “too short” or small.
