The Viral Fever has made a great impact in the world of web by presenting popular web series like Pitchers, The Permanent Roommates, Barely speaking with Arnub and the recent one TVF Tippling.
The Founder of TVF Arunabh Kumar got into deep trouble as two women have accused him of sexual harassment at the workplace. Several women have also have opened up on social media revealing unsavoury encounters with him!
It all started with an anonymous post on Medium.com. Apparently, the post was about an anonymous woman who was molested by Arunabh right from Pitchers to Tripling. But, in an interview to a leading daily, the founder of the digital entertainment channel has denied all the allegations. He has also said that he is open to receiving police complaint.
"It's bad enough women have to suffer sexual harassment when bosses find them 'sexy', but pulling people through this muck is not the answer."
"No matter the truth in this instance, each time such an allegation makes news, it is devastating to read what women face at any workplace.."
"Amit, why are there more than 9 women/young girls with this claim? How is everyone coming out to tell a concerted lie AT THE SAME TIME?"
"If any woman feels she's been abused in any way, she should
file an official complaint and let the
law take it's course..."
"Much to process after all that's been read today. I hope there's a fair investigation that's followed in the coming days to come."
""TVF's rebuttal suggests no investigation of any sort. If they're all lies, what better way to prove that than investigate impartially?"
"Sharing this because I know another girl who went through the same ordeal recently. #TVF #ArunabhKumar."
Arunabh was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "I unconditionally and unequivocally deny all these allegations. Social media has already declared me an offender, but I am ready to address all the allegations against me. I am open to receiving a police complaint so that I can respond legally as well. TVF is bigger than me and if there is a remote chance that I have done any wrong, let me be persecuted."
Hindustan Times also shared the official statement of TVF, which has denied all the allegations:
"This is an official response from TVF on the anonymous article published on Medium by the Indian Fowler. The article is completely ludicrous and defamatory against TVF and its team.
All the allegations made against TVF and its team in the article are categorically false, baseless and unverified.
We take a lot of pride in our team and in making TVF a safe workplace that is equally comfortable for women and men.
We will leave no stone unturned to find the author of the article and bring them to severe justice for making such false allegations.
It is our humble request that you do not share an unsubstantiated, unverified and anonymous article such as this.
We would like to thank all our fans and friends for their continued support."
