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. Who's speaking the truth? 

Let's take a look at what happened from the start for this ordeal, chronologically:

It all started when Journalist Sandhya Menon shared a story of a victim accusing Vairamuthu of misconduct:

 

Singer Chinmayi shared this tweet and revealed her own experience with the famous poet:

   

Ever since many many women and even men have started sharing their stories with Chinmayi! Not only stories related to Vairamuthu but also many others... 

 
   
   
   
     

The stories go on. We can only stare in disbelief as we read through the tweets. In response to the on-going allegations, Vairamuthu has shared a few phrases on his Twitter handle.

 

Chinmayi has called Vairamuthu a 'LIAR' in reply to this tweet:

 
   
Actress Samantha, actor Siddarth, music director Ghibran and many other Kollywood personalities stand in support of Chinmayi. Meanwhile, Vairamuthu also has his share of supporters brushing off these allegations as baseless.

So, which side are you taking? Who is actually speaking the truth? Let us know your thoughts...
