Aaliyah Kashyap gets rape threats: Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah recently posted a video on her YouTube channel revealing how she was being trolled for uploading lingerie photos. Kashyap and his ex-wife, film editor Aarti Bajaj’s daughter Aaliyah also shared that she was called “prostitute” and people have been reportedly sending her rape and death threats.
Aaliyah is currently studying in the United States. Talking about how hard it is to deal with all the negativity while staying away from home, she said that she was “crying constantly” due to the backlash. “So social media negativity is something I have come to terms with. Like, I am a very sensitive person and even the smallest bit of hate does affect me, but I don’t know. I’m sensitive, I cry almost every day about the dumbest s**t,” she added.
People were sending me rape threats, calling me a prostitute, DMing me and asking me what my ‘rate’ was, sending me death threats, s**tting on my family: Aaliyah Kashyap gets rape threats
Aaliyah Kashyap said that it took her some time to cope with all the hate she received after sharing pictures in her lingerie. But she eventually got over it. “People were telling me that I should be ashamed of being Indian and posting stuff like that. People were sending me rape threats, calling me a prostitute, DMing me and asking me what my ‘rate’ was, sending me death threats, s**tting on my family. That whole incident of the picture got me a lot,” said Kashyap.
“I just realised that it doesn’t matter because these are people hiding behind their phones and have nothing better to do. I honestly just block everyone. If there is anything even remotely negative on any of my social media, I just block them because I want my social media to be a positive place,” the 20-year-old went on to say to her fans.
