Anshula Kapoor is being trolled mercilessly since yesterday and worse, has even got rape threats after she become the part of Koffee With Karan season 6 despite the fact that, she wasn’t even present on the show.
In one of the segment of the show featuring Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor, Karan asked the duo to call anyone from the Kapoor fraternity and make him/her say, “Hey Karan, What’s Up?”.
Janhvi called Anshula and asked her to say the words. But, somehow Anshula won the game instead. And it was total fun game, but turns weird when Janhvi posted a throwback picture of her with Anshula and all hell broke loose. Janhvi even explained that Anshula is innocent, she couldn’t hear properly and hence was unable to help her but her clarification went unheard.
You want to protect the people in your life. Like for example my sister actually just recently got trolled on social media. She did something silly on Koffee with Karan and started getting like rape threats and stuff. And it was just weird to me. As people are faceless on social media, they feel they can have opinions that sometimes cross a moral line. So when I put stuff that’s personal up on social media, I do think of that too. I feel protective towards them… what people might say about them or about my equation with them. You tend to be guarded.
When the trolling didn’t seem to stop, last night, an angry Arjun Kapoor took to Twitter and lashed out at trolls.
Without mincing his words, Arjun wrote, “Something I assumed was an absolute non issue on Koffee with Karan has escalated into @anshulakapoor being abused & I can’t be bothered by protocol anymore. F**k all those trolls who wish harm to my sister. I hope ur mom or sister never have to go thru what u have put us thru…”
