Meera Chopra receives rape threats from Jr NTR fandom, singer Chinmayi comes out in her defense

Actress Meera Chopra recently held an #AskMeera Q&A on her Twitter account. In reply to one question, Meera happened to say that she likes Mahesh Babu more than Jr NTR. This simple statement has led fans of Jr NTR to threaten Meera with rape. Meera Chopra retweeted the threatening tweets to bring attention to such blatant threats. Meera also intended to draw Jr NTR's attention to such acts by his fanbase. Meera Chopra tweeted, “@tarak9999 i didnt kno that ill be called a bitch, whore and a pornstar, just bcoz i like @urstrulyMahesh more then you. And your fans will send my parents such wishes. Do u feel successful with such a fan following? And i hope u dont ignore my tweet!!! The actor further wrote, “Well i didnt know not being somebody’s fan was a crime.. i want to say this loud to all the girls that if you are not a fan of @tarak9999, u could be raped, murdered, gangraped, ur parents could be killed as tweeted by his fans. They r totally spoiling the name of their idol.”

Meera Chopra tweeted at the Hyderabad Police twitter account to urge them to take action.
Meera tweeted, "@hydcitypolice @CyberCrimeshyd i would like to report all these accounts. They are talking abt gang banging, are abusive and death threatning. Unfortunately they are all @tarak9999 fanclubs. @Twitter i would request you to look into it and suspend these accounts.”
Singer Chinmayi came to Meera's support and defense. Chinmayi has been on the receiving end of death threats and rape threats. Chinmayi suggested Meera file an official complaint. Chinmayi tweeted, "One of the reasons I stopped saying I even “like movies” is because there are people who’ll use that as a means to abuse. As someone who gets rape threats everyday, I suggest you file a case. Pick the abusive ones from this and file it with @NCWIndia,” Sripada tweeted."
Meera Chopra thanked her fans for supporting her. She urges everyone to create and maintain safe cyberspace for women. Meera tweeted, "Thankyou each one of you for supporting me. Lets make this place safe for women and take down those losers who abuse and give death threats. Lets raise our voice against #womenabuse #rape #pedophilia #hooliganism."
