Samantha came in support of Chinmayi Sripaada who accused legendary lyricist Vairamuthu of harassing her for sexual favours. The Playback Singer had earlier revealed that Organisers of an event in Switzerland asked her to cooperate with Vairamuthu. She even posted various stories exposing the sexual misconduct of the Legendary Lyricist.
When few Netizens questioned why she didn't give Chinmayi the courage to speak the truth all these years, Samantha replied: 'Because it is only now a sisterhood where our words are stronger than these predators #MeToo or Is It?'.
When a follower told he won't accept such allegations after 13 years and what is the need to talk about it now, The Actress said: 'Because we were scared for this exact same reason . That you would make it our fault'.
Another netizen tried to mock #MeToo Movement by posting, 'Today My Son asked Me..Papa what is this #MeToo? I said it's a retirement insurance plan for ladiesâ€¦'. While tagging the Tweet, Samantha questioned, 'And what will you tell your daughter?'.
