Sunny Leone opened her heart out about how she faced brickbats and criticism during her growing up days and the hate was getting much worse as each day passed. From receiving hateful emails to getting mocked and being called disgusting names, she faced it all. However, Sunny revealed that her parents and brother did everything they could to protect her, but sadly after she crossed the age of 21, the negativity broke her down and she couldn't cope with it.
"Many people have the misconception that people started criticising me when I decided to come to India, but that is not true. I started getting hate mails and criticism when I was around 21 years old. So it has nothing to do with the country, but society in general. That was the first time I faced real hatred," she revealed to IANS.
