Recently, sexual harassment allegations on popular celebrities and figures have been making rounds in the online sphere. From Chetan Bhagat to Nana Patekar, netizens are actively supporting the #MeToo movement as victims continue to pour out their stories on social media.

Down south, singer Chinmayi hit the headlines when she revealed her personal experience of facing harassment in 2005/6. Everyone was shocked beyond belief when the name she revealed was Kaviperarasu Vairamuthu. This era-defining poet whose poems and songs are our daily dose of happiness is being stained by such an allegation? At first, it was unacceptable by many of his die-hard fans.

However, as Chinmayi continued to share personal stories from unidentified women who she seems to trust on her Twitter handle, everyone is now in a dilemma.

Now, Kushboo made the headlines for slapping a man who misbehaved with her. Following Kushboo's brave gesture towards handling harrassment, Chinmayi tweeted:
