The Men Named In The Indian #MeToo Movement Will Shock You!
It’s carnage on the Internet right now. Women are angry and this time, they are refusing to be silenced. There’s been a barrage of accusations against plenty of men, some of whom we’ve looked upto and had great respect for.
It’s an opening of an ugly can of worms. And this time no one is being spared. Every industry, every echelon is calling out predators. Men who have taken advantage of their positions, their power and their situations.
Here are the people who have been named and shamed by the Indian #MeToo movement. We’re in shock!
