TV actress and a former Bigg Boss contestant Soni Singh is facing a nightmare on social media past a few months. It’s not new that a celebrity being trolled or bad-mouthed on social media. But what Soni Singh has been facing is really untoward. An Instagram user named Martin is pestering the actress, verbally harassing her and also blackmailing her to reveal something about her in public. This is happening for a few months. When the frustrated actress blocked him on the social media, he made fake profiles to spam her timeline.
While speaking to a leading daily, Soni Singh narrated her trauma of sexual harassment and blackmailing. She says, “Initially, he approached me on Facebook and was trying to be polite to me. Gradually his conversation turned vulgar and started harassing me sexually by using inappropriate comments like, ‘I want to kiss you in your mouth’. I immediately blocked him as I didn't want to have any negativity around. Then he contacted me through another account and started blaming me for being a racist. He also spoke ill about my country and that we are poor and black people. He didn't stop there and started polluting my timeline with some other accounts. Now, I don't understand whether his first account was real or fake. But things got worse when he started writing wrong stuff on my friend’s timeline as well. Whenever they used to post a picture with me he used to go and write that he would reveal something. What, I really have no idea?"
When asked about when all this started, she said, “I don't remember the exact date but yes it's over months. Many fans ping me with greetings and I try to reply to them and respect their love. He was among them.”
Soni Singh also stresses on the trauma such instances create in a person’s mind. She says, “It's scary as I feel worried what if these guys hack my profile. And yes, reading such comments or facing such negativity is really irritating for sure.”
She also revealed that she’s planning to seek help from the cyber crime cell if his offensive comments and messages don’t stop. She says, “As of now nothing but I guess if he don't stop will go to cyber crime.”
