issues a statement after her brother #SajidKhan
is accused of sexual harassment, saying that she "stands in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt." But is her show of support coming too late?
Fans have criticised her earlier insensitivity to the #MeTooIndia
cause, like when she posted a photo with #NanaPatekar
soon after #TanushreeDutta
accused him of sexual harassment.
neither has to apologise for the misconduct of her brother nor should she be considered complicit in his crimes because she "was sharing a house with him". However, it's important for everyone, celebs or otherwise, to recognise that now is the time to #BelieveWomen
, even when it comes with the disconcerting experience of having to rethink your relationship with the accused.
The harassed risk their personal safety and wellbeing when they come forward with their #MeToo
stories and they need all our support.
