Who Threatened Virat And Anushka’s 9-Month-Old Of Rape? Know Inside!!
Cricket is one of the most loved games in India, it may also have die-hard fans, but some of these so-called fans readily display toxic masculinity on social media when the team does not match their expectations. Their ‘love’ for the game is forgotten, and what is left over is pure hatred and anger.
Blaming wives and kids of cricketers, commenting and trolling them when they do not play according to expectations has been normalized.
It is disturbing to even read the comment made by now deleted account of @Criccrazyygirl who issued a rape threat to a nine-month-old Vamika Kohli, daughter of Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma and India men’s cricket team captain Virat Kohli.
The identity of the person who issued this threat is yet to be identified but it has been viral and shamed throughout the country.
This tweet comes as Virat Kohli stood up and spoke in support of his teammate Mohammed Shami who was attacked online after the cricket team faced a 10-wicket defeat against Pakistan in the ongoing Men’s T20 World Cup.
Virat Kohli took to social media in support of Shami and said that-
“To me, attacking someone over their religion is the most pathetic thing that a human being can do. Everyone has the right to voice their opinion and what they feel about a certain situation. But personally I have never, ever, even thought of discriminating someone over their religion. That is a very personal and sacred thing to every human being and that should be left there. People take out their frustrations because they have no understanding of what we do as individuals and how much effort we put on the field.”
However, unfortunately for us, this is not the first time. former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s five-year-old daughter Ziva Dhoni was also issued rape threats following his performance during IPL 2020 in October. A 16-year-old boy, who was then a student of Class 12, was arrested by the Gujarat Police in connection with the case, later that month.
We hope that whoever it was will soon be arrested and trialed.
