Vijay urges fans not to post anything that harms women

Journalists seek action on trolling of colleague

Tamil star Vijay has issued a statement deploring "hurtful comments against women on social media" after a female journalist was hounded on Twitter by the actor's fans. She approached the Cyber Crime and submitted the screenshots of the abusive tweets.

Rajendran had to face a volley of abuse from various Twitter users who were allegedly fans of actor Vijay, who has a number of hits under his belt. Vijay's statement, carried by IANS and other news agencies, reads: "I respect women a lot".

Meanwhile, actor Vijay, now shooting for his film "Mersal", said everybody had a right to criticise films. I believe no women should be spoken of in a demeaning way no matter what happens.

The City Police Commissioner A.K. Viswanathan on Tuesday assured women journalists of strong action against a number of persons who trolled a woman journalist and others who spoke in her defence, for an innocuous comment on a Hindi film comparing it with a Tamil film that was made seven years ago. An FIR has been filed under IPC sections 354 D (stalking), 506 (1) (criminal intimidation), 507 (criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication), 509 (insulting the modesty of women), section 67 of IT Act (publishing obscene material), section 4 of TN Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act, and section 6 of the Indecent Representation of Women Act. "Everyone has to praise womanhood". "I request everybody to behave responsibly on social media and to not hurt anybody intentionally!" After receiving over 75,000 tweets, the journalist filed a complaint. "Rule of law must take prompt measures in curbing this menace".

Rajendran, through her posts later, indicated that the backlash was an organised exercise in targeting her.
