Rhea Chakraborty has been placed under judicial custody of 14 days by the NCB for her alleged role in procuring banned drugs. However, she has been put under media trial ever since her boyfriend actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s family filed a case of abetment to suicide against her after his extremely tragic device. She has been hounded by media, netizens and interrogated vigorously by the Narcotics Crime Bureau.
However, Rhea has received a tremendous amount of support from Bollywood who have stood up for her and called her persecution on the media news channel as a ‘witch hunt’. Today morning when she appeared for her interrogation, Rhea wore a black T-shirt that bore the caption, “Roses are red, violets are blue. Let’s smash the patriarchy me and you.”
The T-shirt slogan started trending on social media with netizens giving their mixed reactions to Rhea’s choice of words. However, Bollywood celebs are sharing this caption on social media now after her arrest showing their solidarity towards the actress. Usually, when someone wants to show their support or wish someone they choose to share their pictures with their messages, but this time around, the B-town celebs are sharing this quote with their messages.
Sonam Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Gauahar Khan, Vijay Varma, Zoya Akhtar, Maanvi Gagroo, Maheep Kapoor, Radhika Madan, Vidya Balan, Anurag Kashyap, Sandhya Mridul, Shaleena Nathani, Ankur Tewari, Akanksha Ranjan Kapoor, Reema Kagti, Dia Mirza, Radhika Apte and several others shared Rhea’s T-shirt caption and demanded justice for Rhea as the hashtag #JusticeForRhea started trending.
#JusticeForRhea I don’t even want to start to talk about the monsters who have created this false narrative and misinformed an ENTIRE nation for a few extra TRP’s. And I definitely don’t want to start on the ridiculousness of the angry frustrated mobs who believe they know more about someone’s life and struggles than the persons own loved ones. Let’s get one thing straight - the loudest person in the room ISN’T ALWAYS RIGHT. Depression is a DISEASE and it doesn’t carefully handpick you based on your fame and success. You lose to it, the same way you lose to cancer. I refuse to bend over backwards and stay silent for even one more second because I’m afraid of being abused by some sick in the mind nameless shits who will run to ‘boycott’ the next thing I do. I understand everybody’s need for closure but as someone who has lost a loved one to mental illness, I know the best thing we can do sometimes is find peace in the fact that the person made that choice themselves. In our country when a woman is raped, we try to blame her for instigating the man rather than holding him - the perpetrator - accountable for his crime. And once again, here we are today. We would rather believe a woman has practiced black magic and celebrate her public downfall than accept that a man made a choice all on his own.
