Nithya Menen has responded to the claims of her alleged statement that a “Tamil hero” harassed her during the shooting of a film. The statement allegedly read, “I have never faced any problems in the Telugu industry, but I have faced a lot of problems in the Tamil industry. A Tamil hero harassed me while shooting for a film.”
Soon after, Menen took to her social media handle to clarify that the statement was false, and she never levelled any such allegations. She also urged those who amplified the fake news to be “better.”
Nithya Menen On Alleged Statement About Harassment
Sharing screenshots of accounts on X (formerly Twitter) that spread the fake news, Menen wrote, “False news! Completely untrue! I have never given an interview. If anyone knows, please point me in the direction of who started this rumour. Need to hold people accountable for simply making up these types of false news just to get clicks.”
Further, she added, “It’s very sad that certain sections of journalism have come down to this. I urge you – Be better than this! #stopfakenews.”
In a follow-up post, Menen stated that she found the user who started spreading the false rumour. She wrote, “We are all here for such a short period of time. It always surprises me how much wrong we do to each other." She added that she was pointing this out today because only accountability stops bad behaviour.
She named a media channel named Buzz Basket, which goes by the username @thebuzZBasket to have started spreading the fake news. Sharing a screenshot of the news shared on their page, Menen wrote, “Culprit found,” and thanked everyone for pointing her in the right direction.
She urged the portals thebuzzbasket, ursbuzzbasket, and letscinema and all others who have followed this bandwagon to be better humans and concluded her statement with #stopfakenews.
