Social media never fails to amuse with its nastiness. When it comes to moral policing or judging a celebrity, everyone holds a specialization in the field. While criticising the celebrities who are often considered as public property by many pseudo-fans, they forget there their line is. We have seen it time and again how brutal these trolls gets about celebrities. The internet brutality hit a new low when a girl decided to call Arjun Kapoor a creep and rapist, just for a picture.
A Twitter trolls, seemingly coming from a girl user, abused Arjun Kapoor and called him a creep, rapist and criminal. You must be wondering where this is coming from. Not only you, but Arjun Kapoor himself felt shaken and angry at this comment. But he chose to get back at the troll in a rather dignified manner.
This is an all time low at trolling I feel...a woman, a girl shamelssly and causally using the term rapist isn’t trolling it’s saddening...

After he responded to the comment, the user deleted the tweet.
A couple of days ago, Arjun Kapoor spoke to Hindustan Times where he addressed the issue of online trolling and moral policing. He said, “First of all, social media has no bearing of male or female. It acts as a kick for people, who get pleasure out of hiding behind a keyboard. There is no binary in the trolling happening — males troll females and vice versa. I find it appalling, but that is society. It is shameful, but the reality is that trolling exists. You will never be able to stop it, unfortunately, because that is the power of social media. You can say what you want to and get away with it. This can’t be called a violation, as it’s everyone’s freedom of speech.”
