Looks like the 'Selfie With Daughter' campaign is turning out to be quite ugly and abusive for some people. After activist Kavita Krishnan, actress Shruti Seth has been targeted on Twitter for making anti comments on the Narendra Modi initiated campaign.
The #SelfieWithDaughter campaign has been trending on Twitter for quite some time now. While, many are in support of the initiative, some are against the same and there is nothing wrong in it, being in a democracy.
However, Shruti Seth has been vehemently trolled and abused on Twitter for expressing her opinion on the mentioned campaign.
Shruti posted on Twitter, "A selfie is not a device to bring about change Mr. PM. Try reform. #selfieobsessedPM". This lines irked the Modi supporters and they started making abusive comments on Shruti Seth and her family on the social media site.
Shruti, however, was bold enough to retweet the abuses hurled at her. It appeared quite ironical how a daughter was abused on Twitter, in a bid to show support for the campaign called "Selfie With Daughter".
Nevertheless, Shruti remained strong on her stand and further posted, "The hatred I've encountered today on a difference of opinion just goes to show this is no country for women. #SelfieWithDaughter #suchasham (sic)"
Another post by the actress says, "You've abused me, my parents, my husband, my daughter, my career over an opinion I stated. The darkness of this place leaves me hopeless. (sic)". Although, she was aggressively trolled by many, the actress also received some supportive words from others.
