Dealing with abuses, trolls and threats have become a norm for celebrities these days. Social media gave a platform to people to troll celebrities by being anonymous. But no one thinks about how this hatred will take a toll on the mental state of the victim. Some celebrities lash out on the trolls while some others just ignore the comments. Recently, popular model and actress Ananya Panday's cousin, Alanna Panday explained how trolls and rape-threats have become an everyday part of her life. She said that a woman commented that Alanna deserves to get gang-raped for posting a picture in a bikini.
On her Instagram post, Alanna wrote, "This happened months ago. I wish I had spoken about it sooner, but waking up and reading things like this just became normal to me it's an everyday part of my life. Here’s 1% of what I have to wake up and read every day."
Her note read, "I’ve had a woman comment on my post saying I deserve to be gang-raped because I posted a picture in a bikini. She then tagged my mother and father in the comment to make sure that they saw it too. I wish I had a screenshot but I was so shaken when I saw it I blocked her immediately and Instagram deleted the comment. When I went to her profile to block her I saw that she was married and had a daughter a little younger than me. I don’t understand how you can wish that upon someone else’s child."
