Netizens calling out familiar personalities for the deeds they committed when there was no social media became common nowadays. Actor Vijay who is known for his huge fan base became the recent victim of such Internet troll. He was called by a set a twitter users for the misogynist dialogues he uttered in one of his films named as “Sivakasi” directed by Perarasu.
In the particular clip which is doing rounds in the micro blogging social media site, we can see the female lead for the way she was dressing. He who questions Asin for not wearing a saree, can be seen saying that all the men would wish to live with her if she wears a sleeveless and shorts, in a way normalizing sexual harassment against women. He who schools her on how to dress in public, would have completely forgotten about men who are causing the trouble in the first place. Ironically, the film became a block buster during its release time and gained the actor a mass appeal.
A twitter user named as Madhushani, sharing the video clipping with a caption saying “Ungal karuthu makkaley! Feel free to break brand new furnitures”
