Chinmayi Sripaada, a popular singer and voice artist, was one among the 18 women who accused lyricist Vairamuthu on his sexual predatory behaviour as part of the #MeToo movement which rocked India in 2018. Ever since she came out with her story, the Tamil cinema industry has shunned her and she was out of work for more than a year. Though she has filed a case against Vairamuthu, there has been no respite for her. Recently, Chinmayi took to Twitter to share a series of tweets against a Tamil publication which celebrated Vairamuthu for a song he wrote on Women's Day.
On Women’s Day, a major Tamil publication talks about a song of Mr Vairamuthu which is about women. (!)— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) March 8, 2021
