In this day and age, as amazing and as much a boon as the world of internet is where social media, especially, has only grown four folds and got a public figure closer to their fans more than ever.
But over the years, we have also seen how an array of these 'fans' go on to cross limits on every instance which turns into obsession, cyber crime and sheer harassment. Having been at the receiving end himself, actor Priyank Sharma recently called out such accounts and went on to even tag cyber crime officer and cyber crime helpline. Apart from how some harassed him and even his family members to some others posting about how he cheated on Benafsha Soonawalla, Sharma posted a couple of images and captioned his post saying, "I love you TOO , so much you have no CLUE ,!,,
Two years , some more than 2000 accounts , harassing/tagging me my friends and my family . Same time everyday following the same pattern ?. HOW MUCH ARE YOU GETTING PAID ? You can’t be a fan you OBSESSED FUCK you are a SHAME ! Don’t take my admirers down by calling yourself one . We need help . ITS HIGHEST TIME [email protected] @cyber_crime_helpline"-
We certainly hope that the actor is able to get some action taken against this and it gets better soon.
