In the wake of the #MeToo movement in the country, writer Chetan Bhagat found himself in hot water as writer Ira Trivedi accused him of sexual harassment in a tweet that soon went viral on social media. The writer soon took to social media and shared a long response to the allegations.

On Monday, Chetan released a series of screenshots defending the charges levied on him. The screenshots of a ‘self-explanatory’ email were sent by Trivedi in 2013. He was quoted as saying, “A person’s reputation is their most prized asset and takes a lifetime of work to earn. To have these motivated, fake attacks on me is abhorrent and the sickest thing a person can do. Please don’t support this kind of smear campaign.”

Check out his tweet here:

He shared screenshots of emails which Ira sent to him, which ended with ‘Miss You, Kiss You’. He asked people to decide, ‘Who wanted to kiss whom?’

He further asked people to not misuse the hashtag and to keep his family and friends away from the harassment.

The best selling author also said that “unfortunately in India no matter what or how noble the cause, it always ends up being corrupted.” Bhagat said that people have “now finally realized what is real #MeToo and what is #FakeMeToo”
