Celebrities are always a target of cyberbullying and sexual harassment on social media. Television actress and former Bigg Boss contestant Soni Singh recently fall prey to a pervert who spammed her Instagram page.
The 33-year-old actress opened up about her experience of getting harassed and blackmailed on social media. The Instagram user who goes by the name of Martin has been after the actress for a few months. Soni Singh talked about SpotBoye about the cyber sexual harassment and said, “Initially, he approached me on Facebook and was trying to be polite to me. Gradually his conversation turned vulgar and started harassing me sexually by using inappropriate comments like, ‘I want to kiss you in your mouth’. I immediately blocked him as I didn’t want to have any negativity around. Then he contacted me through another account and started blaming me for being a racist. He also spoke ill about my country and that we are poor and black people. He didn’t stop there and started polluting my timeline with some other accounts. Now, I don’t understand whether his first account was real or fake. But things got worse when he started writing wrong stuff on my friend’s timeline as well. Whenever they used to post a picture with me, he used to go and write that he would reveal something. What? I really have no idea.”
She further added, “It’s scary as I feel worried what if these guys hack my profile. And yes, reading such comments or facing such negativity is really irritating for sure. As of now nothing but I guess if he doesn’t stop will go to cybercrime.”
The television daily soap actress has earlier featured in shows such as Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann, Laagi Tujhse Lagan, Saraswatichandra, Yeh Vaada Raha.
