Tamil actor Meera Mithun faced backlash on social media following a resurfaced video of her in which she allegedly used a casteist slur and demanded the removal of all the scheduled tribes and scheduled caste actors from the industry. The police filed a case against the actor following a complaint made by the VCK leader on August 7.

Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) leader filed a police complaint against the actor on Saturday in which he accused Mithun of being casteist in a video released by her.

The video in question surfaced on Twitter and shows Mithun asking for all the actors from the Scheduled Caste community who work in the Tamil Film industry to be thrown out.

After several retweets, the video caught the attention of the VCK Chief and MP Thol Thirumavalavan. He asked on his social media platform for the arrest of the actor and the person who interviewed her in the viral video.

She said in the video, “In the film industry, SC directors and other people of the community do cheap things. I think it’s time to chuck out all the scheduled caste directors and scheduled caste people from the industry. Cheap very cheap!”
