For the past two days, actress Anasuya has been persistent in responding to Vijay Deverakonda trolls and fans. On Friday, the hashtag “aunty” was trending across the country on Twitter. She became irritated that everyone was calling her “aunty” and took to Twitter to express her frustration.
She received harsh criticism for her sly tweet criticising the box office failure of “Liger” from fans of other celebrities who joined the chorus. Later, she acknowledged that she had tweeted it impulsively. But she continued to respond to each troll and brought up the subject of “online abuse.” Even after two days, she has not stopped bombarding me with responses.
Someone asked, “Antha khaaligaa unnava anni tweetlu chaduvutu reply istunnavu.” I have a job; she insisted. Anasuya declared her dedication to ending cyberbullying.
The gist of her tweets is: Stop abusing me, stop calling me Akka or Aunty, and call me Anasuya instead.
