Singer Sona Mohapatra Gives Befitting Reply To Tweet On Comedian Utsav Chakraborty
Known to speak out frankly, singer Sona Mohapatra has reacted sharply to a tweet that asked if she was running a #MeToo campaign on Twitter against comedian and YouTuber Utsav Chakraborty, or if she was simply sharing her opinion.
This is what she wrote: “A quick rap on the knuckles to you Mr Anon handle. Yes I have seen screenshots of the messages & pics Mr Utsav used to share with women & also writing a tweet with an opinion isn’t running a campaign. Keep your bulls**t in your corner. Your muted henceforth on my timeline.”
A person with the Twitter handle @MensDayOutIndia had tweeted to her and said: “A Quick Question @sonamohapatra Did you know @Wootsaw personally? Were your ‘campaigns’ against him a matter of ‘knowledge and personal experience’? #MenToo #MeToo #MeTooIndia…” It also included an older tweet by Sona against Utsav

In another tweet, the singer clarified how it was not about gender but accepted that historically speaking, matters have been tilted in favour of men. She wrote: “& Dear @MensDayOutIndia @DeepikaBhardwaj, please know that I understand that – ‘Not all women are angels & Not all men are thugs’. There are good & bad ppl.That the current power structure coming down from centuries is tilted & statistics clearly indicate this too is also true.”
Utsav has been accused of sending sexually explicit messages to women during the #MeToo movement in 2018. In a Twitter thread, a writer-comedian had shared several accounts of women who claimed to have received unsolicited explicit photographs from Utsav, Hindustan Times (HT) reported.
