Several celebs too have come forward to lend their support while there are some who are trying to dodge questions relating to the incident. Tanushree received support from actors like Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor to name a few.

However yesterday, Sonam Kapoor announced that she is taking a break from Twitter because there’s too much of negativity.

The actress had written, “I’m going off twitter for a while. It’s just too negative. Peace and love to all!”

National award-winning filmmaker-screenwriter Apurva Asrani feels that more people will quit social media in coming days so as to avoid standing against their friends, family members and colleagues. We are assuming that he is taking a dig at celebs like Sonam here.

Asrani who has films like ‘Aligarh and ‘CityLights’ to his credit, took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “A tsunami of expository testimonials nailing sexual predators is hitting our shores. And now that the accusations are coming close to home, many will quit social media to avoid standing against friends, colleagues & family members. Suddenly twitter will become a ‘negative place’.”

Interestingly, apart from Sonam, filmmaker Hansal Mehta too announced that he is going off Twitter, as he was trolled for speaking out against Vikas Bahl. However, his statement led to a war of words between him and Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut’s supporters.

In the coming days, let’s see how many more B-town celebs decide to quit the social media platform.
