A tweet posted by Oviyaa on teaching the sons about respect and consent instead of teaching daughters about self respect has garnered huge attention from the users of micro blogging social media site. She who is known for gaining a separate fan base only through raising voice on various issues in Bigg Boss house, has also been raising voice for issues that are taking place in the outside world after her Bigg Boss stint.
Known for her uniqueness, Oviyaa initially rose to fame through the film Kalavani in which she paired opposite to Vimal as school student. She grabbed the attention of Tamil cinema audience through her innocent looks and cute expressions. But she became the household of Tamil TV audience through her stint in the first season of Tamil Bigg Boss show.
In the show, the actress attracted the audience through her bold statements and gutsy decisions inside the house. The actress confronted with almost all of her housemates inside the Bigg Boss house, including experienced dance choreographer Gayathri Raghuram and Ganja Karuppu. As she has become a favorite contestant among the audience in Bigg Boss season 1, ‘Oviya’s army’ and ‘Oviyans’ have gone crazy on her. A campaign has been launched on the social media platform at that time to garner votes for the much-loved contestant who has managed to charm viewers with her expressions and way of dealing with the others in the house.
She recently grabbed headlines after criticizing Prime minister Narendra Modi through a meme. Now, she came up with a tweet raising voice against moral policing on girls. “Instead of teaching your daughters self defence and #metoo.. teach your sons about respect and consent” read the recent tweet of Oviyaa.

Teach sons about respect and consent.— Jeffrey Ryan 🇲🇾 🇺🇸 🇨🇭 (@Jeff_Carlito) June 25, 2021
Teach daughters self defence anyway, so that they can beat the hell out of sons who were not taught well by their parents and protect the girls who don't know self defence.
This is bullshit. Are the girls are perfect??? Teach sons and daughters about all. Even now girls are calling gotha gomma.— Onion (மேதகு வெங்காயம்) போண்டா இல்லை (@Vengayam_da) June 25, 2021
